The Rise of No-Code Development Platforms [Infographic]
Technology is always evolving with the rise of citizen developers, an indicator of the next wave of digital trends. A major conversation in recent years alongside tech development is the shortage of software professionals to meet demand and keep up the momentum of change. On top of this, the events of 2020 have done little to improve these challenges for a multitude of reasons, all while making it more evident just how complex shortages are on micro and macro levels. The dramatic widespread shifts in how businesses run from introducing e-commerce overnight to the rise in remote work have either overwhelmed or made organizations vulnerable in a range of ways or some cases, all of the above. It’s no surprise that emerging tech that enables development work by ordinary people is of interest to everyone from business managers to software hobbyists.
In this space, development platforms that require little to no hands-on coding ‒ low-code and no-code ‒ are the leading talking point for their range of benefits including cost, agility and shorter timeframes. In fact, even prior to the pandemic, significant growth was imminent, and the data projections reflect that. ZDNet reports, “Analyst firm Forrester has predicted that the low-code market will grow 40% annually to top $21 billion by 2022, while Gartner forecasts that low-code application platforms will account for 65% of all app development by 2024.”
No-code platforms are a particular point of interest for the average person or organization due to the fact they require no development knowledge and an app that solves niggling issues can be created in a matter of weeks or less. Overall, this is an exciting tech niche to know about because it benefits everyone from overstretched IT teams to small businesses with a limited budget and relatively simple tech problems that require app solutions. Building upon this in more detail, TeamKonnect developed this infographic ‘No-Code Development Platforms’ as a technical starting point for learning about this tech in more depth and to help establish a greater understanding of no-code platforms within the developer space.
