Journey to the Cloud: Building Smart Apps with Low-Code Development
Blog: The Tibco Blog
Digital transformation can mean different things to different businesses. Each organization is at a different stage of their journey to digital with varying legacy software, custom capabilities, and unique goals. From cloud and APIs to enterprise applications, understanding the best way to evolve is often a large part of the struggle. Many times it seems that each application update request requires a highly experienced technical team, which takes precious time and resources, making the process anything but expedited. Because digital transformation is an ongoing and ever-changing journey, the requests for new capabilities and applications show no signs of slowing down. This need for speed and customization has bred a new kind of development that works in favor of growing businesses and business users—also known as citizen developers—that lack in-depth technical skills, but not the desire and drive to get work done. This new kind of development is called low-code.
When it comes to smart applications, low-code allows citizen developers to easily create, test, deploy, alter, and scale applications without relying on an IT team that is buried in application development backlog. With low-code, an organization can move quickly on ideas for solving business problems.
TIBCO’s low-code platform, TIBCO Cloud Live Apps, uses a simple five step interview that guides users through creation so that their ideas become fully functional apps. What makes Live Apps particularly exciting is its ease of use coupled with scalability and licensing plans that fit very small to more complex needs.
