No-code platform is an advanced improvement over traditional hand coding practice. 

This article will help you to clearly understand the level of dependency of Enterprise Software Development in terms of Total Cost of Ownership, Efficient Workflows and Effective Solutions by revolving around the similarities, differences and use case scenarios of No-code platforms and the conventional method of coding.

What are no-code platforms?

As the name suggests, no-code means that you, as a business user, don’t have to write even a single line of code to build powerful applications. Any employee of an organization who has basic excel skills will be able to use no-code platforms and build business process applications. No-code offers a builder with built-in functions and features (already coded and loaded) which are simple drag-and-drop blocks or elements which makes it easy to use and saves time.

3 Reasons to Opt for No-code?

Here we discuss the 3 reasons to opt for no-code which will help the organizations on why to opt for no-code platforms by clearly understanding the benefits correlating with the use cases using no-code platforms. They are:

  1. Eliminate the Dependency on Developers
  2. Speed of Building and Deploying an Application
  3. Cost Effective Platform

Let’s dive in

  1. Eliminate the Dependency on Developer

No-code solutions are like a bypass to the developers. In place of having a skilled team of developers build an application, the business user himself or anyone in the organization with basic excel skills is able to build powerful business process applications. Eliminating the dependency on developers will save a lot of time and the cost of developers for the organization.

There will be a chance of loss in translation of requirements and deliverables, to and fro depicted in the below cycle.

Business Owner ↔ Strategy Team ↔ Requirements ↔ IT Team ↔ Developer

No-code platforms allow the business owner to have more control and transparency over the app building process ensuring minimal to zero loss in translation of requirements and deliverables. 

  1. Speed of Building and Deploying an Application

App building process in no-code platforms is fast, simple and straight-forward. Just by using drag-and-drop blocks the business user can build and deploy powerful applications quickly.

Whereas coding is a bit complex and a difficult process that consumes a lot of time in building & deploying applications.

  1. Cost Effective Platform

No-code platforms reduce the application development cost by a huge margin. Comparing the cost of maintaining and managing an IT team and the cost of using no-code platforms in the long run will see no-code platforms as the cost effective solution for organizations.

Why Choose No-code Platforms?

Simplicity - That’s the answer!

Since coding is not involved in no-code platforms, the app building process and app deployment is very simple. The only edge conventional coding holds over no-code platforms is customization. Due to coding, business users can have a bit more freedom for customization than in a no-code platform. But it consumes a lot of time and is not a cost effective solution.

Therefore, the answer to the question of why to choose no-code platforms is also pretty simple. If no-code platform is fitting your business requirements then opt for it.
