Choosing a Low-Code Automation Platform: Consider These 10 Things First.
- Low-code offers the best in flexibility and controls
- Build varied, responsive and powerful applications
- Quickly deploy apps from consumer focused to back-end complex critical business systems in hours, not days!
- Leverage in-built platform capabilities like High-availability, high productivity, connected and deep data assisted tools are available for developers and citizen users
- Explore Interfacing’s LCAP solution Digital Business Platform
The way business process applications are created and maintained has been transformed by the Low-Code Automation Platform (LCAP). Companies across many industries are reducing costs, saving time, and increasing productivity by making it simpler for non-technical people to carry out tasks that formerly relied significantly on the input of experienced developers and software engineers.
We’ve developed a list of the top 10 features you should consider when choosing which is best for your needs in order to assist you:
Easy Integration is Key
No matter how rapidly and elegantly it has been created, a low-code application can only be effective if it can be linked with your current legacy systems. The LCAP you select should be able to provide connectors and APIs that let you quickly deploy apps across the full IT infrastructure of your company.
Compliance and security
It’s crucial to ensure that your processes have been modelled, documented, and automated in accordance with accepted security practices and current compliance needs in today’s complicated and always changing corporate environment. A good LCAP will give you the assurance that you can monitor and modify apps easily and fast when the need arises.
Drag and Drop Interface for Visual Modeling
Drag-and-drop interfaces and Visual Modeling are at the core of the Low-Code revolution. People with little to no technical knowledge can become “Citizen Developers” who are extremely skilled in process modelling and app building thanks to these simple, straightforward tools. Here you may find out more about several Business Process Modeling standards.
Comprehensive Process Modeling Capabilities
Almost any kind of Process Modeling difficulty, from a straightforward employee leave request (or vacation request) to a highly complicated approval workflow requiring in-depth knowledge of the pertinent business logic and copious documentation, may be handled by a good LCAP. While not every business requires this level of adaptability, larger companies will profit from the use of a single, incredibly flexible platform.
The market offers a variety of payment structures, most popular are enterprise-wide developer licenses. As an incentive, many LCAP partners will urge prospective clients to use the software for free prior to making a purchase. The vendor will be comfortable allowing you to trial their platform if they are confident enough in its capacity.
Is it Scalable
Any company’s main objective is to be successful. Success nearly always results in progress. It’s crucial to pick an LCAP whose software and service offerings can expand with you. When a firm is compelled to perform a significant software system update, it frequently results in disruptions that can be avoided with a resilient and scalable platform. So you want to choose a platform where you will be able to permanently benefit from platform upgrades independently from your applications, to help accelerate the functionalities you develop in your apps.
Functionality across many devices
The era of “One user, one desktop PC” is over forever. These days, your staff members operate from a variety of gadgets, in different places, and at all hours of the day or night! Your LCAP partner must be able to offer a design/build low-code solution that enables team members to be equally productive whether using a phone, laptop, or home computer as they are at their desk.
Out-of-the-box components that can be reused
In the corporate realm, the word “shortcut” has a poor reputation. Shortcuts, however, can be advantageous in Low-Code Automation since they save time, lessen aggravation, and allow Citizen Developers to focus on “longcuts” that ultimately increase an organization’s total productivity. A strong LCAP offers a quick means to repurpose and alter boilerplate material, such as processes, activities, forms, roles, and will enable you to establish uniformity across the company.
Reporting and Analytics
You’ll frequently hear the phrase “continuous improvement” as you wander around the offices of any prosperous business. Your LCAP should make an effort to join you in the never-ending quest for excellence. A successful low-code platform will consistently provide measurable returns on your investment by making it simple for you to monitor the performance metrics that guide process optimization and iterate.
Leverage out-of-box features & Offerings
Ensure your LCAP software provides easy setup for optimization and customization in addition to the existing feature-set. Customizing form behaviors based on workflow, adding specific notifications and tracking codes are a couple examples. By making your software bespoke, specialized dashboards and interactive diagrams can be created quickly to analyze your company’s operations.
LCAP platforms are also great for both complex and less sophisticated standalone apps like mobile or web apps. There is no real limit to low-codes versatility.
In a world that competes for faster response to market conditions, having a strong LCAP platform on hand offers a competitive advantage for developers and organizations who use them.
Low-code offers the best in flexibility and controls. This translates to the fact that you can build more varied, responsive and powerful applications while at the same time, offer the solution you are building to go from concept to implementation in an incredibly short amount of time. All done with security and compliance concerns taken care of along the way.
