No-Code to Full-Code: The New Spectrum of Application Development
Faster delivery of applications is a must for businesses to be innovative, and the only way to achieve this is to change the way they are built. It’s this need that has given rise to the emergence of low-code software development platforms. The term ‘low-code’ was coined by Forrester Research in 2014 to describe software being built in half the time it takes to code using traditional methods. Since then, low-code development platforms have further fragmented into simple departmental solutions, heavy-duty IT-driven enterprise development, and everything in between.
This white paper seeks to explore the spectrum of application development methods, their different uses, and their pros and cons. It covers no-code, low-code, and full-code (traditional development methods) and explains their suitability for different projects, who should use them, and how they can be most effective.
