LOW CODE DEVELOPMENT PLATFORMS

LCDPs are software that provides the programmers with a platform where they can create application software through graphical user interface and configuration instead of usual hand-coding.

Application such as databases, business processes, or user interfaces such as web applications require hand-coding practices. Building the skill-set required to build & maintain such applications is one challenge, keeping those specialised resources in organisation is another challenge. 95% of organisations fail to follow the Continual Service Improvement programs because of skill-set required to enhance the applications to align with the continually improving service paradigms.

Relying on service-providers is expensive and most of times organisations suffer to bring minor improvements because of the financials involved in the development. LCDPs reduce the amount of hand-coding required and hence enables better and faster delivery of business applications.

Someone with formal programming skills can easily contribute to the
application’s development without having expertise in programming
skills.

The concept of LCDPs  was introduced by Forrester Research, an industry analyst.

LCDPs are based on three principles namely:
1.Model-driven design
2.Automatic code generation
3.Visual programming

Widespread automation of business processes using software has lead to an acute need for development environments like LCDPs. Today major software companies are already migrating to LCDPs.

A growth of $15.5 billion by 2020 has been estimated for total market for low-code development platforms.
