Covid has negatively affected our lives in many ways, psychological, social, and economic. However, there have been some issues that have led to a breakthrough in the direction of digitalization. For instance; the use of low-code software received a strong boost from the COVID pandemic. It helps companies accelerate digital transformation and change the way they interact with their customers. According to Gartner’s research, because of that, the use of the platform has skyrocketed.
And after the pandemic?
To understand the answer, we first need to understand why companies are turning to low-code during the pandemic. The ITProPortal article, explains how the pandemic revived the use of low-code development tools among software developers: ‘’Increasing pandemic spread has provoked the permanent changes to how the world works in which organizations have decided that they have no other choice but to rework their established practices and client services.
According to the article, low-code software solves those problems. It implies that low-code makes developers more efficient by reusing components. It yields, ’’In short, low code enables IT teams to use their time and skills more intelligently and efficiently, accelerating the delivery of new user experiences.”
Additionally, business experts and citizen developers can use low-code/no-code platforms to write apps themselves, letting IT focus on more complex applications and on improving infrastructure.
All this means that the use of low-code platforms will continue its stunning growth even after COVID. That’s why the RTInsights article, “Low Code Use Peaked During COVID, But Will it Stick?”
Even though this pandemic comes to an end, potential disruption of operations is always a possibility. Many companies realized that they were not ready to handle even small obstacles like this.
In terms of digital transformation, the article notes that it is as important as ever. Businesses still need to get applications built fast. They need to increase the IT staff productivity.
As a result, “as long as companies develop a governance system, leveraging the power of low-code solutions can provide the fastest amount of value and provide an integrated experience without the months-long coding sprint of past years. As businesses prepare for the future, these solutions have a big chance.”
In fact, the benefit of COVID here for new technologies is that it creates the need for a rapid digitization process. Companies and administrations have sought a way to go to digital as quickly as possible to avoid being harmed by the epidemic, and they have been able to provide this speed with low code solutions. According to articles, low-code software will continue to be used after COVID to avoid the risk of company downsizing again and for rapid digitization.
