Properly implementing low code

Shorten time to market and reduce IT departments’ workloads

What low code offers your company

Low code offers you many advantages: Functionalities are delivered faster, less work needs to be invested in technical basics, agile working is supported and companies benefit from a close collaboration between departments.

These advantages are primarily used to

  • optimise inefficient, manual and paper-based processes,
  • modernise organically grown IT landscapes and
  • deliver digital experiences on the market as quickly as possible.

Fail to prepare and prepare to fail

To properly take advantage of the listed benefits, choosing the right platform for low code is not all that needs to be done. Instead, a number of preparations need to be made in terms of the process models, responsibilities, quality assurance and integration in order to ensure that the low code promises are kept.

The low-code paradigm deals with two challenges: on the one hand, there are the frequent capacity bottlenecks in IT departments resulting from the wide range of tasks, for example, IT strategy and governance, new developments, supplier management and operations. On the other hand, speed is a success factor, for example, in order to be able to react quickly to market changes, customer requests or regulatory requirements.

There are some disadvantages resulting from this conflict:

  • The digitalisation of business ideas takes too long.
  • The IT costs for basic features are too high.
  • Permanent overburdening of the IT department leads to frustration.

This is where low code comes in

In response to this situation, the low-code paradigm pursues the vision of making the development of applications accessible to people with zero or little engineering background – known as ‘citizen developers’. To make this happen, low-code platforms provide four components in a homogeneous and perfectly integrated environment: these include the development of drag-and-drop interfaces, graphical modelling of (business) logic, application generation and one-click deployment, as well as standardisation, reuse and integration. When correctly used, there can be significant benefits:

  • shorter time to market,
  • greater cost-effectiveness and focus on core business,
  • less pressure on IT capacity and expertise,
  • satisfaction thanks to more effective collaboration and
  • a higher-quality end result.
Make fact-based and sound decisions

To do this, we jointly consider business issues that would benefit from low code, the maturity of your IT landscape and the human resources necessary for low-code deployment. We also create initial applications ready for live use.

Start small and celebrate the initial success

After a positive evaluation, we integrate the chosen low-code platform into your IT landscape, integrate the initial applications in your day-to-day business and set up a centre of excellence.

Application to other areas, departments and cases

The solid foundation that has been created is now fully utilised, and applications are used for other business areas and business issues. You act independently by using the centre of excellence.
