OmnePresent and Mendix lay a strong foundation to democratize innovation through low-code technologies
OmnePresent, a leading low-code service provider, and Mendix, a global leader in low-code platforms, recently came together to organize an event. The agenda was to discuss the future of low-code technology for accelerated app development.
The pandemic has been a game-changer in how businesses conduct their operations. The need for robust and scalable apps for various services is at an all-time high. A low-code platform like Mendix, fortunately, bridges the gap.
But how do organizations make the best use of low-code technology? What measures should they take to accelerate digital transformation within their operations? How will their workforce align with the change? Experts from OmnePresent and Mendix share their valuable insights on these pressing questions.
Why is innovation the need of the hour in app development
The mobile app market is likely to grow by $653.91 billion between 2021 and 2025 at a CAGR of 21%. Mobile apps are undeniably the torchbearers of innovation in the digital space. Businesses need to put their best foot forward to create apps that comprehensively solve user problems.
But the problem gets compounded as software and technologies come with a limited lifespan. There is a short time for organizations to innovate with new offerings. So, how do they overcome this problem?
Minimizing the app development time helps overcome this problem and launch apps faster. Businesses can also keep pace with the competition by creating a better portfolio of apps with advanced features. It ultimately leads to better positioning in the market. A stable architecture allows swift incremental changes that also improve the user experience.
Why low-code for process automation makes sense?
Low-code automation is a revolutionary concept that helps anyone build apps even with basic coding knowledge. Users can also create workflows and processes in no time. It is a better approach than back-end computer programming that has its disadvantages.
Low-code platforms offer a visual approach that makes app development a seamless task. Users get pre-designed templates and drag-and-drop interfaces that aid the rapid creation of apps. Reusability of components is another striking aspect that helps shorten the creation time.
Developers no longer have to write extensive codes to build apps. They can furthermore digitize and automate their entire app development process.
