How Low / No Code Solutions are changing the World

The Power of Code-Free Revolution

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to excel at football like Lionel Messi, swing a tennis racquet with the skill of Serena Williams, paint masterpieces like Rembrandt, sing like Ella Fitsgerald, or create software applications as innovative as a top-tier developer?

As incredible as it sounds, low/no-code solutions provide exactly that – a powerful software development platform that makes complex coding an obsolete challenge (of course you should take a look at JBI's Power Automate training). These unique platforms empower anyone and everyone to craft ingenious software applications using easy-to-use interfaces, simple drag-and-drop tools, and pre-built components and templates.

Taking a Stroll Down the Memory Lane

In this odyssey, our first pitstop is the 1970s and 1980s when the seedlings of visual programming began to sprout. Systems like HyperCard, LabVIEW and Scratch highlighted the potential of visual interfaces in application development. Though confined to specific domains initially, these pioneering systems laid the groundwork for future progress.

Unveiling the '90s: Visual Basic and PowerBuilder

In the 1990s, Visual Basic and PowerBuilder propelled the momentum towards simplified software development by introducing hugely user-friendly graphical interfaces. These interfaces, replacing complex coding languages, heralded a paradigm shift in tech industry practices.

Entering the 2000s: The Advent of Low Code Platforms

Low-code platforms, such as Salesforce and QuickBase, stepped into the limelight in the early 2000s, offering pre-configured components and templates that facilitated the creation of custom applications minus the normal layers of extensive coding.

Recent Advancements: Blurring the Line Between Humans and Machines

More recently, rapid advancements in cloud computing and artificial intelligence have supercharged low/no-code platforms, making them more accessible and incredibly potent. These platforms now come equipped with advanced machine learning models, drag-and-drop workflows, and seamless integration with a wealth of data sources and a myriad of third-party services.

The Catalyst behind Low/No Code Solutions

"Necessity is the mother of invention" – the proverb holds true when it comes to the inception of low/no-code solutions. These platforms were conceived to ease the strain of coding and enhance efficiency, speed, and flexibility in software development – a development strategy that has proved irresistible for businesses seeking cost-effective, time-efficient solutions that do not compromise on quality.

Dealing with a Shrinking Pool of Coders

A glaring lack of experienced software developers, particularly in many global geographies, has compelled organisations to seek alternatives. This is where low/no-code solutions swoop in, empowering businesses to craft tailor-made applications without relying on specialised developers.

Digital Transformation and Business Strategy

Organisations across various industries are leveraging these intuitive tools to adapt to technology demands, keeping pace with the accelerating speed of tech evolution and revolutionising their operations.

Evolving Business Landscape

What low/no-code solutions offer is radically transformational - a platform for non-technical professionals to draw from a vast selection of components and weave together a digital solution that tailors perfectly to their organisation's unique needs.

Speed Advantage: Deploying Products Faster

The pace advantage of low/no-code solutions is undeniably significant. The time required for custom application development is dramatically reduced, allowing businesses to roll out new offerings promptly, and adapt swiftly to market changes and customer preferences.

Enhanced Productivity: Revving the Gears of Efficiency

The essence of these platforms lies in streamlining workflows and integrating seamlessly, resulting in significantly enhanced productivity across organisations.

Fostering Creativity and Innovation

Enabling organisations to experiment freely and innovate without committing hefty resources, these platforms prove to be an incredible asset to keep them consistently competitive.

Looking to the Future

With the persistent surge in demand for low/no-code solutions, the future of such platforms is set for continual growth. This upward trend is propelled by an accelerating push for digital transformation across businesses globally, coupled with a widespread shortage of skilled developers. Don't get caught with the "I wish that I knew what I know now" mindset.

Seise the Day: 'Carpe Diem'

Our advice to businesses? Seise the day. The time has never been better for your organisation to fortify its workforce with tech expertise and invest in enhancing your in-house capabilities by leveraging the power of no/low code solutions.
