Low Code and No Code
As the adoption of no-code and low-code development solutions continues to grow, there comes many questions of its benefits, flexibility, and overall organizational role. Through the myriad of questions, there is one main theme in the benefit of its use: leveraging no-code and low-code practices for automation and speed to release.But what are the pain points that these solutions seek to address? What are the expected vs. realized benefits of adopting a no- or low-code solution? What are the current gaps that these solutions leave in development practices? This Trend Report provides expert perspectives to answer these questions. We present a historical perspective on no and low code, offer advice on how to migrate legacy applications to low code, dive into the challenges of securing no- and low-code environments, share insights into no- and low-code testing, discuss how low code is playing a major role in the democratization of software development, and more.
Development speed, engineering capacity, and technical skills are among the most prevalent bottlenecks for teams tasked with modernizing legacy codebases and innovating new solutions. In response, an explosion of “low-code” solutions has promised to mitigate such challenges by abstracting software development to a high-level visual or scripting language used to build integrations, automate processes, construct UI, and more. While many tools aim to democratize development by reducing the required skills, others seek to enhance developer productivity by eliminating needs such as custom code for boilerplate app components. Over the last decade, the concept of low code has matured into a category of viable solutions that are expected to be incorporated within mainstream application development. In this Trend Report, DZone examines advances in the low-code space, including developers' perceptions of low-code solutions, various use cases and adoption trends, and strategies for successful integration of these tools into existing development processes.
