In today’s business world, speed is critical. And getting applications up and running as quickly as possible by deploying a minimum viable product (MVP) provides a definite advantage. To maximize the deployment speed of MVPs, smart startup leaders are leveraging low-code or no-code solutions to meet their business needs.
The future of low-code/no-code apps is very promising. Gartner has estimated that 65% of new app development will be low-code by 2024.
Applying low-code/no-code solutions to the task creates great flexibility for iterations and the development process. Innovation can’t be slowed down by a shortage of skilled coders. Employees with other skills can participate more in upgrades or launches of new products. And stress can be taken off IT departments.
The Case for Low-Code/No Code
The strategy of using low-code/no-code for new business is compelling. In the case of making an MVP, the essential purpose is to gain, by exerting the least cost and effort to roll out an early version of a product, the maximum amount of metrics, real-time user feedback, and customer validation from early adopters.
The use of low-code/no-code development is now being used to build and optimize apps, customer experiences, workflow integrations, data pipelines, dashboards, and other solutions, according to an article in InfoWorld.
The speed of development is a major attraction of low-code technology. Application development using low-code can be 10 or 20 times faster than traditional approaches. The focus can be on designing the proper solution while the coding is left to the platform.
Low-code for MVP development helps business users and developers to collaborate productively. The workers who will be using the applications can influence the product development stage as the work progresses.
Low-Code as a Growing Trend
And while MVPs are perhaps the most obvious use case for low-code/no-code platforms, there’s plenty of evidence that the agility offered by low-code/no-code will keep extending well beyond MVPs into other software development. According to an industry analyst quoted in a recent article in Information Week, the low-code/no-code space that had been considered a niche is rapidly expanding and may increase three-fold over the next three years.
One increasingly important use for low-code solutions is in managing the problem of technical debt. According to some studies, organizations can spend 40% of their time dealing with technical debt. Low-code software solutions that can replace ancient lines of code are an attractive option. Older systems can be replaced for low-code applications that will not add to the technical debt that IT teams are required to maintain.
Solutions From Eccentex
Businesses seeking to quickly bring a product or application to market can make that happen by using Eccentex low-code development platform. You can take advantage of visual design tools and feature-rich widgets. And developers can quickly add custom code or functionality to any app created with low-code.
With the Eccentex AppBase low-code platform it’s possible for non-technical business users to configure applications. Their work can result in a modern UX. Better integration and automation options are made possible.
AppBase is ideally suited for case management solutions applications. In a recent example, FairWay, New Zealand’s leading dispute resolution and conflict management organization, needed to update its systems. Using Eccentex AppBase, Fairway was able to achieve the implementation of the desired updates, and keep serving clients, even while dealing with the complications brought on by the global pandemic.
The Eccentex prottype program is a very attractive option for building a no-code MVP, as it allows a company to actually build a product.
