Properly implementing low code

Shorten time to market and reduce IT departments’ workloads

What is Low-Code?

Faster delivery and effective collaboration

Low-code development platforms (LCDP) make it possible to develop applications based on visual elements that are understood by technical staff and IT experts alike.

Low-code development promotes collaboration between stakeholders from the business world, citizen developers and professional developers, while cross-functional collaboration allows you to more quickly align business requirements with development outcomes.

Capacity bottlenecks and the growing need for digital solutions

With demand for (new) digital solutions constantly growing, this can often not be adequately met due to capacity bottlenecks in the IT department. The rollout of new solutions not only requires development work, it also involves time-consuming, cost-intensive upstream and downstream processes. This includes things like embedding the new solution in the IT strategy, integration into the existing IT landscape, governance, administration, maintenance and operation. This often leads to additional problems such as:

  • The lengthy process of digitalising business ideas and processes
  • High IT costs for basic functionalities
  • Frustrated employees because the IT department is constantly overworked
  • Projects that cannot be implemented

Reduce complexity and link departments seamlessly

The low-code paradigm opens up new opportunities in application development not only for professional developers but also for specialist departments, including citizen developers. It creates a seamless connection between the IT and the other technical departments by reducing complexity and creating a shared platform for collaboration. This unifies the IT landscape and promotes innovation. There are a number of advantages to low-code:

  • Reduces the workload of the IT department
  • Eliminates shadow IT
  • Available within the shortest time possible
  • More cost-effective and greater focus on core business
  • Increased satisfaction thanks to more effective collaboration
  • Higher-quality outcome
  • Modernisation of legacy applications

An introduction to low-code

How adesso supports your company

Making the right preparations is crucial. To truly reap the benefits, it is not only important to choose the right low-code platform. You also have to make a number of preparations in terms of procedure models, governance and assigning responsibility for quality assurance and integration in order to take full advantage of low-code.

To get the most out of low-code, three elements of business agility must be in place:


A generative, collaborative culture that encourages creativity and experimentation.


Trained employees who can take advantage of opportunities and properly assess risks.


A fully integrated platform embedded in the company’s development and business processes.

    Using low-code successfully is not a sure thing

    Low-code is a paradigm in modern software development. It pursues the vision of making the development of applications accessible to people with zero or little engineering background – known as ‘citizen developers’.
