Low-Code Development Platforms Overview

What is Low-Code Development?

Low-code development platforms (or rapid-application development platforms) provide ‘citizen developers’ with tools to build simple process applications with little oversight. These tools simplify the application building process, and are frequently used for simple process applications.

The tools give businesses the ability to create simple apps without much technical know-how. The goal is to inject agility into what can be a complex and lengthy application development process.

These platforms are usually drag-and-drop environments. Components are connected like Legos allowing for a high degree of trial and error. Low code platforms are a reaction to traditional application development that are based on detailed system requirements and hand coding.

They still require some amount of technical skill, but low code tools can be easily learned. They are best for junior programmers or non-coders with some technical acumen.

Low-Code Platforms Features & Capabilities

  • Drag-and-drop design and development

  • Integration with other apps

  • Visual modeling

  • User management and team roles

  • Built-in workflow

  • Security

  • Reporting and monitoring

Pricing Information

Low code software is typically priced per user per month, in a subscription model.

The software can start as low as $25/mo. per user. Many tools offer under $100/mo. subscription levels. Enterprise level low-code software runs over $5,000/mo. Free trials are often available.
