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.

A prominent feature of low-code platforms is Workflow automation. Workflow automation enhances productivity by automating repetitive tasks and freeing up employees to focus on more value-added activities. Secondly, it improves efficiency by streamlining and standardizing processes, reducing manual effort and the potential for human error. Thirdly, it promotes collaboration by automating the flow of information, tasks, and approvals across departments or individuals. Lastly, it enables data-driven decision-making by providing real-time insights and analytics on automated processes.

Different low-code development tools implement workflow automation functionality in various ways. Some tools provide a visual business process editor, allowing users to create data processing schemes using simple visual blocks. This enables the creation of workflows with varying levels of complexity. Other tools offer pre-defined triggers and actions, allowing users to create automated workflows without the need for coding or technical expertise. Additionally, some tools integrate with third-party applications and systems, facilitating the automation of tasks and processes across multiple platforms.

Authentication and Authorization Management is another prevalent feature in low-code development tools. It ensures the security of user accounts and sensitive data by implementing secure authentication methods and fine-grained role-based access control. Different low-code development tools implement this feature in various ways, providing businesses with specific benefits.For example, some platforms offer comprehensive security solutions at both the application and code level. They provide standard safeguard methods such as authentication and authorization, SSL encryption, user onboarding, and integration with popular identity management systems like LDAP, Active Directory, SSO, and OAuth.

Others offer a unified module for managing authentication and authorization. This module allows businesses to configure identity providers, support various forms of authentication (e.g., biometric, multi-factor, social media), and integrate with third-party authentication providers using protocols like OAuth and SAML. Some low-code development platforms provide customizable security settings, such as password policies and expiration rules. They also offer features like two-factor authentication and support for external identity providers, enhancing the security of applications while providing a seamless user experience.

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 development platforms are popular and widely adopted in the software development industry due to their ability to facilitate faster development, cost savings, flexibility, customization, collaboration, and agile development. These platforms offer a range of features and functionalities that cater to the needs of businesses, making them a valuable tool in today's software development landscape.
