It’s no secret that low-code development platforms are shaping the landscape of custom application development for businesses around the world. With IT resources increasingly becoming more difficult to secure, more and more tech-savvy business professionals are turning to low-code platforms to create powerful custom web applications themselves. Low-code development platforms don’t require users to have any experience in coding, opening new ways for business professionals to overcome their unique challenges. Whether they’re a Customer Service Director creating an application that allows customers to track the status of equipment repairs or an Ecologist building a comprehensive database of endangered plant species, the sky’s the limit for what these business developers are able to accomplish.
If you are a business developer considering to use a low-code platform to solve business problems within your organization, how do you know what to look for? Here’s a quick checklist to help you out:
- Easy-to-use Visual Application Development Tools
A good low-code application development platform should give you the ability to develop the components of your applications — like data structures, forms, reports, logic, user management and workflows — using visual point-and-click tools and step-by-step wizards.
- Integrated Online Database
Because it keeps track of all your data, an online database is the foundation of your application. You should be able to build a database that is scalable, easy to use and tightly integrated across the platform.
- Easy Deployment
You should be able to quickly and easily deploy your application to your own web properties.
- Scalable and Secure Cloud Platform
Your low-code platform should have cloud infrastructure that provides enterprise-grade security and allow you to scale your application to your needs.
- Flexible User Management
Your custom application should have robust and flexible user management capabilities.
