What is Low-Code Automation?

Low-code automation is a means of automating business processes that requires little coding, making it easier for non-technical business users to get hands-on with automation projects and decreasing reliance on developers and software engineers.

Forrester Research describes low-code automation platforms as “Application development platforms that enable rapid application delivery with minimal hand-coding, and quick setup and deployment.”

 “Low-code platforms
can help development teams work faster and increase enterprise-wide software
production by empowering “citizen” developers.”

The low-code market is set for rapid growth. Gartner predicts that low-code application building will make up more than 65% of all app development functions by the year 2024 and with about 66% of big companies using a minimum of four low-code platforms.

What are the benefits of low-code automation?

What is citizen development?

Citizen development allows business users to use low-code or no-code software to create their own business processes and applications. Thanks to the ease of use of low-code platforms, business users with no prior coding experience are able to create their own processes without relying on support from IT.

“500 million new apps are going to get created in the next five years. Think about that, that’s more apps than in the last 40 years… When you think about this challenge of 500 million applications, we’re just not going to have professional developers to build these applications, so we need citizen developers.” – Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO

According to a 2019
Gartner report
, 61% of organizations either have or plan to have active
citizen development initiatives.

How does cloud computing support low-code automation?

Cloud-based platforms have helped support a recent surge in the use of low-code platforms, as the secure, yet flexible solution allows users to collaborate across the organization. It’s easy for citizen developers to gain access to the software, and it can be scaled up or down as required with regular updates to ensure users are always using the latest version.

A key benefit of using the cloud is the ability to spin up and test new services. And if the solution doesn’t work, it can be turned off without worrying about wasting money on physical infrastructure to support the services that may or may not work. This means you can experiment with new solutions in low-code, supported by low-cost and low-risk deployment on the cloud.
