What is Low Code Development?

What is low code?

Low-code is an application development approach that allows us to build software solutions that are tailored to your specific requirements much faster than if we were using traditional software development techniques.

Rather than a traditional technical coding environment, low-code uses a visual model-driven, drag-and-drop approach using pre-existing components. Whilst most of the solutions requirements can normally be delivered using the pre-built elements with our low code development platform, where we need to, we can utilise traditional software development languages to fill in any gaps which means almost anything is possible.

Low code features and benefits


  • Visual Interface: Low-code platforms provide drag-and-drop interfaces, allowing users to visually design their applications without needing to write extensive code.
  • Rapid Development: With pre-built templates, components, and integrations, low-code development accelerates the app development process significantly.
  • Minimal Coding Required: Developers can achieve complex functionalities with minimal coding, reducing the need for deep technical expertise.
  • Collaboration Tools: Many low-code platforms offer built-in collaboration features, allowing teams to work together seamlessly on projects.
  • Integration Capabilities: Low-code comes with built-in connectors and APIs, enabling easy integration with various systems and services.


  • Increased Productivity: Low-code development empowers both developers and non-developers to create applications faster, reducing time-to-market for new projects.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: By streamlining development processes and reducing the need for extensive coding, low-code development can significantly lower development costs.
  • Agility and Flexibility: With the ability to quickly iterate and modify applications, low-code development enables businesses to adapt to changing requirements and market demands more effectively.
  • Empowerment of Businesses: Low-code platforms allow business users with minimal coding skills to contribute to application development, simplifying the development process.
  • Enhanced Collaboration: By providing a visual interface and collaboration tools, low-code platforms facilitate better communication and teamwork among developers, designers, and business stakeholders.

These features and benefits illustrate how low-code development can revolutionise the way applications are built, making development more accessible, efficient, and collaborative.

Low code comparison

Low-code development combines the best of both worlds (no-code and high-code) in a single platform where both non-technical users and professional developers can apply their skillsets, collaborate, and co-develop solutions.

  • No-code development
    No-code development is ideal for people with no coding knowledge or experience. With this development technique, you can build basic applications with a limited scope, without involving IT.
  • High-code (traditional) development
    High-code, or traditional development, involves manual coding in multiple languages with various technologies. You can build any solution, but you’ll be heavily reliant on professional developer resources.

Who can build with low code?

With an integrated development environment (IDE) catered to both business users and professional developers, anyone with an idea can use low-code to tackle today’s business challenges.

  • Professional developers
    Low-code provides developers with a sophisticated toolbox tailored to support client-side, server-side, and integration development. With low-code, professional developers can extend applications with custom code, integrate data from multiple sources, build mobile applications, leverage microservices, and translate business needs into custom solutions.
  • Business developers
    Rather than wait for IT, non-technical business users can use low-code’s simplified development environment to build their own applications. Governance cuts down on shadow IT and empowers anyone to build basic applications while IT still maintains visibility and control of the organization’s application landscape.

How to pick a low code platform

How do you choose the right low-code development platform when there are more than 300 vendors in the market?

At its foundation, your low-code platform should be equipped to help you meet the ever-increasing demand for software solutions. But what about the details?

Every low-code development platform is different. Use the evaluation criteria below as you’re vetting your options.

      • Collaborative IDE
        To empower your entire workforce to co-create solutions, make sure the platform you use has a collaborative IDE. The platform should have built-in tools to facilitate real-time collaboration between business and IT throughout the application lifecycle.
      • Data Integration
        Organizations have vast amounts of data across various teams. The platform should have the ability to integrate with any system and data source. Your low-code platform should make it easy for developers to find, understand, and use data from any internal or external source - without compromising data security.
      • Application lifecycle management
        Your low-code platform should have an integrated set of tools and services for continuous support throughout the application development lifecycle - from ideation and requirements gathering to deployment and performance management. This support eliminates the traditional bottlenecks, costs, and risks associated with app delivery while increasing quality and providing a better development experience for all stakeholders involved.
      • User Experience
        End-users expect frictionless experiences across their various devices. Your low-code platform should offer development and operational support for web, mobile, immersive, and conversational experiences to optimize UX.
      • Productivity
        To support developers of all skill sets, the platform should offer drag-and-drop widgets, reusable components, and real-time collaboration tools to enhance development productivity. The platform should also offer flexible integration and extensibility, as well as out-of-the-box DevOps tools to help professional developers build complex applications and systems faster.
      • Cloud Support
        Your low-code platform should support the scalable development of cloud-native applications with the option to deploy on public, private, or hybrid clouds, as well as on-premise.
