The world of software development has experienced a major transformation with the emergence of low code and no code platforms. These platforms enable developers, entrepreneurs, and businesses to build robust applications without expertise or experience coding. This democratization of software development is unleashing new possibilities for advancing software development, accelerating productivity, and boosting innovation.
In recent years, the no code movement has gained significant momentum. According to Gartner, 70% of new applications built by organizations will use low code or no code technologies by 2025. This prediction is a testament to the rapid adoption and acceptance of no code platforms in the software development landscape. No code and low code tooling open new possibilities for teams of all skill levels.
What is the impact of such a movement?
The Rise of No Code / Low Code Technologies
One of the most exciting aspects of the no code movement is its potential to unlock new software ideas. As Arun Saigal, CEO and Co-Founder of Thunkable, explains, “By putting no-code tools in their companies, businesses can accelerate their time to market, where the market may be the general public or maybe your team of five people who can benefit from the software solution.”
According to Zapier's data report, "The rise of no-code", it was found that more than one-third of no code users are professional engineers or developers. Why? Because while technical professionals have the skills, they are choosing to use no code tooling to accelerate their productivity and improve “task-oriented time savings (83%), automation (76%), and flexibility (74%).”
At the end of the day, no code tooling is beneficial for anyone — non-technical and technical professionals alike — looking to create solutions. These tools enable professionals of all technical skill levels to build solutions more efficiently.
The versatility of no code platforms also means that companies can solve a variety of business problems simultaneously. For example, a company can use a no code mobile app development platform to build an app that streamlines internal processes and can also create a customer-facing app that will engage and retain clients. Both apps can be built within the same environment, on the same platform, but have two totally different use cases. Such versatility means companies can adapt to changing business needs and focus on creating solutions quickly without the lengthy development process.
The rise of no code and low code technologies is not just a trend but a significant shift in which companies approach software development. By enabling individuals and businesses the ability to build applications without writing complex code, no code platforms are helping companies become solution oriented.
