What are “no-code” development platforms?

By 12/19/2022 No Comments

“No-code” systems are special software design frameworks, which enable individuals who are not even specialised in IT, to create platforms and applications by themselves. These tools possess an intuitive interface and technical features, that are able to predict the implementation process and easily describe the overall business logic. Specifically, we are talking about a programming platform that uses a visual development interface to enable non-technical users to create applications by dragging and dropping software applications to create and define a complete app. In fact, the development of “no-code” platforms involves an approach that allows programmers and non-technical users to design applications using visual modeling and configuration tools. This evolution accelerates the development of applications and addresses the need to automate workflows, creating custom software much faster than traditional coding approaches would ever allow. In this way, large companies have the opportunity to increase operations, processes and change, but more importantly, they have the opportunity to better meet the needs of their customers and employees in order to observe business growth.

In summary, the “no-code” system succeeds in automating workflows compared to traditional coding approaches; moreover, no-code tools undoubtedly result in a significant simplification of digitization. This new kind of programming is revolutionizing digital infrastructure strategies by providing users with essential security features such as administrative tools, access control, and evaluation of potential threats. No-code also requires fewer programming skills, which fills the gap in the IT department that many companies face without forcing them to hire additional experts, while also allowing developers to create applications by reducing the workload and more expensive resources, given a simplified implementation. 

The benefits and features of no-code systems

Digital transformation is a reality impossible to ignore for companies that want to maintain some level of competitive advantage.  In this ever-changing world, there is a growing demand from all departments to develop innovative interfaces for mobile devices, IoT-governed tools, smartphones and tablets. Not to mention that companies tend to assert their innovative character by relying on technologies such as artificial intelligence or machine learning. App production, using visual and innovative methods and patterns, is much faster than development through subsistence of codes: no-code interfaces are simpler and more intuitive allowing even unskilled users (or simply beginners) to design an application or platform, so knowledge of coding systems no longer appears essential to develop an application or create a website. Finally, these are accessible tools that do not require special technical equipment, with cross-platform compatibility that enables stakeholders to create applications that can also run on all platforms and devices.

Since effective digital transformation has been undertaken, IT departments and business leaders realize that by eliminating manual coding, faster and better results are achieved. Pandemic, quarantine, remote working conditions and the resulting consequences have forced business entities to rapidly rethink their technology strategy. In summary, no-code platforms provide users with essential security features including administration tools, access control and threat assessment. It is therefore possible to configure and monitor system security at any time, and in addition, industry best practices ensure the security and privacy of stored data. 

The future of no-code systems development

Digital product development can go through complex and time-consuming processes: however, now the digital dimension is no longer an option, but a matter of survival. Usually, access to no-code platforms greatly accelerates the development process: fintech companies and online banking systems are now able to take advantage of these tools and products, to “personalize” consumer experiences, without the need for a specific IT team, focusing on customer needs. 

Allinweb’s IT with its home and mobile banking solutions are undoubtedly revolutionary, enabling the production of cutting-edge digital services for the rapid creation and distribution of modern financial services products. It accelerates the adoption of technological innovations to simplify application development and process automation, cultivating a culture of continuous operational improvement.
