Software Development can be a long and costly process which can be extremely risky at times. Many companies have tried to combat the risks associated with developing software that does not function in a way that is intended or is unable to properly execute all of its tasks.
One of the major ways to combat these issues is using Low Code Platforms, which have gained a lot in popularity. These platforms are designed for people with different backgrounds and levels of expertise to be able to build functional platforms for their organizations.
While developed software is usually easier to use and can be catered perfectly to the specific operations of the organization, they are notoriously hard to maintain in house. These software’s usually require regular maintenance, upgrading and constant oversight to operate at full capacity, this creates cost and worry for the sources of such software.
On the other hand, Low Code software are very hard to cater specifically to an organization’s specific needs and often impossible to add on, migrate or change. This has driven many experienced software developers away from these platforms.
Big Technology companies have not been a stranger to these issues; organizations like Out Systems have revolutionized the way Low Code platforms work by allowing them to have flexibility in their build and properly managing their data. However, Low Code platforms still have a way to go before they are fully accepted as a viable solution for Enterprise Software Development.
