Low code in 2021

As the end 2020 approaches, corporations in industries such as oil and gas, logistics, and manufacturing industries are looking towards the new year and what it may bring for business growth.

Amongst preparation for the new year and a new quarter, one thing corporations can start focusing on is what to expect in the low-code market in 2021 and why modernization is more crucial than ever. In this blog, we’ll go over what to expect for low-code in this coming new year and why EdgeReady Cloud is the best option for a low-code solution.

A Growth in Low-Code Adoption

As COVID-19 continues to persist on a global scale, remote work has become the norm for most companies across various industries. Because employees aren’t working in the same location, reliance on efficient and automated internal processes is more imperative than ever. 

Legacy systems, with their limitations, are just not cutting it and are actually adding more work to your plate, requiring routine maintenance and costing more money than if the system were modernized. This is why corporations are looking towards low-code platforms as a solution. Not only does the pandemic require companies to realign their approaches to business growth, but staying within a budget and automating tasks as much as possible has become a must.

For this reason, more and more companies will adopt low-code in 2021. For those corporations that have already made the shift, Forrester analysts confirmed that “enterprises that embraced low-code platforms, digital process automation, and collaborative work management reacted faster and more effectively than firms relying only on traditional development." Those who haven’t made the shift are simply falling behind their competitors and halting business growth.

Below are more reasons why there has been and will continue to be such an increase in low-code adoption: 

  • Corporations and their partners needed low-code platforms to effectively deliver mission-critical applications such as modernizing old core apps
  • Less programming required means not having to hire expensive coders who are savvy in a legacy coding language such as ABAP for SAP
  • Innovation as well as prototyping is made easier with low-code

Step into the Future with EdgeReady Cloud

As adjustments for ongoing remote work continue to be thought out for companies across the globe, low-code solutions are looking more attractive than ever. It’s no surprise that companies that have already adopted low-code platforms adjusted to 100% remote work much better than their counterparts who remained stagnant in their modernization efforts.

While at the start of the pandemic many companies had to halt their modernization projects, if companies don’t begin to put these projects back at the top of the priority list, they’ll find themselves falling way behind their competitors and halting business growth.
