Enterprises globally are embracing low-and no-code applications and tools in their IT infrastructure.
According to a recent report published by Grand View research, the market size of the low-code development platform globally was valued at USD 5.5 billion in 2021. The report also predicts that the market size will grow at approximately 22.9% CAGR in the forecasted period from 2022 to 2030. There is a surge in the low code and no code application adoption to drive more business demand.
As most businesses globally are digitally transformed, they need agility in their DevOps processes to develop and deploy applications quickly. Developing applications on no-code and low-code platforms equip organizations with the agility DevOps teams to require to deliver applications at pace.
Following are a few ways that enterprises can transform their DevOps:
Enhancing experience utilizing low-code and no-code platforms
User experience (UX) plays a critical role in business strategies and success. Businesses need to improve the UX for their clients, workforce, vendors, and other stakeholders. User experience has an influence on various key performance indicators like client satisfaction, workforce engagement, conversion rate, and response times. Low-code and no-code platforms play a pivotal role in enhancing the user experience. Leveraging these platforms in the IT infrastructure will unify the fragmentation in the current enterprise tech stack. No-code tools enable DevOps teams to standardize and automate workflows that are not currently executed through Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), or other applications.
DevOps can leverage low-code and no-code tools to enhance the UX by seamlessly integrating them with the existing enterprise IT infrastructure and minimizing the gap between them. Even if the enterprise has an integrated iPaaS platform, there are chances of gaps in the databases and other assets in the current enterprise tech stack, which cannot be resolved only with data integration. Low-code tools eliminate the risks of fragmentation by offering a solution to bridge the gaps that emerge while implementing new applications to the business network or upgrading the existing applications. Low-code and no-code tools are capable of protecting work process automation that standardizes requests and directs them to the relevant person to review.
One of the significant ways that no-code applications help to improve UX is by reducing the complexity and time required to deliver applications. Enterprises find it difficult to embrace change because of the limited resources and capabilities of the existing IT infrastructure.
Low-code and no-code offer the DevOps teams with process standardization required for automation and orchestration. Many organizations have work processes that are dependent on teams that manage emails and spreadsheets manually and are often linked to the core business processes. Low-code platforms enable DevOps teams to develop and deploy applications, automation, and integrations quickly to improve business efficiency.
Another significant way that low-code and no-code platforms help to offer an enhanced UX is that it allows the workforce to resolve the problems they encounter in their daily operations. These platforms ensure that the issues in the processes and workflows are dealt with by resources who are experts in that vertical. Low-code and no-code platforms bridge the gap between the issue and the expertise needed to overcome the concerns.
