As such, there is a strong business case for low-code and rapid application development platforms. Enterprise is transitioning towards a state of being that requires every organisation to produce its own software and systems that meet its specific operating requirements. By 2024, it is estimated that 75 percent of the G2000 will be high-performance, large-scale producers of software-powered innovation. Companies need to address current audiences and find new ones by creating powerful, omni-channel experiences.
In a customer-experience driven world that demands better and faster services, legacy systems and long development times simply won’t cut it. It is critical for organisations to modernise legacy systems in order to achieve this level of agility. Low-code platforms provide a way to design and develop software applications rapidly, with minimal manual coding work. Visual modelling in a graphical interface allows developers to skip all the infrastructure and re-implementation of patterns that typically holds up a software development team.
More than 50 percent of organisations across the Asia-Pacific region expect low-code to be a central part of their plans for over a quarter of planned projects in 2021.
In the ANZ region, companies are well down the path towards a mature DevOps journey. 59 percent of ANZ-based enterprise reports that they are uniting business with DevOps, 53 percent are ensuring security by design, and 52 percent are managing interdisciplinary DevOps teams. Further to this, 24 percent plan to adopt low-code tools in the near future.
To be a part of the ongoing transformation, it is essential for IT and business leaders to learn and adapt to these new conditions.
