Fremont, CA: According to research, the global low-code development market will reach 13.8 billion dollars by the end of 2021, a 22.6 percent rise from 2020. According to expects that the spike in remote development during COVID-19 will continue to drive low-code adoption, despite budget constraints and cost-cutting measures.
Low-code is no longer a newcomer on the scene. Instead, Low-code apps are becoming increasingly diversified, ranging from basic dashboards to large systems, gaining traction in the business sector. In essence, low-code is a visual application development paradigm that incorporates the drag-and-drop of pre-built components and integrations, resulting in faster, easier, and less error-prone development.
Low-code has the advantage of allowing users with non-traditional programming backgrounds to participate in the app development process, democratizing development, and shortening project durations. It also closes the demand-supply gap formed as businesses struggled to meet ever-increasing digitalization demands with limited resources and a lack of developers. In addition, many low-code platforms make it simple for citizen developers (for example, business analysts, line-of-business users, and junior engineers) to construct applications while substantially lowering delivery time compared to traditional coding approaches.
However, the productivity and speed of citizen developers are not the only advantages of low-code development. Low-code platforms now provide capabilities explicitly designed for professional developers ranging from enterprise IT teams to ISVs. These platforms have hardened for business usage, can exploit the scalability and security requirements of a complex application, and have sophisticated integration capabilities to integrate smoothly with current tools and technologies. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations reinvented themselves by implementing low-code platforms and applications, which assisted them in adapting to the abrupt change to a remote work paradigm and enabling the essential contemporary application demands that came with it.
Security Challenges with Low-Code and Remote Work
As opposed to conventional development, low-code development comprises a range of personas working together to construct applications while dealing with automatically produced code, ready-made components, and built-in default configurations. The change in the environment reveals some new issues that must get handled. For example, there are a few frequent security issues when working with remote teams that use low-code.
