Low-Code and No-Code Application Development

Unlocking the value of new applications quickly

Flexibility and speed have become crucial for organizations to stay relevant and thrive in today’s digital era. But how can you unlock the value of new applications quickly to meet the changing demands of business? Low-code application development is what you need to rapidly develop new apps using visual modelling instead of extensive coding.

Benefits of low-code development

Increased time to market

Higher productivity and the seamless integration of tools and environments result in much faster release times. This means that you can bring new features into production and respond to business requests much more quickly.

Higher productivity

Developers use visual modelling tools instead of writing lines of code. All environments (dev-test-prod) and tools are completely integrated and work together seamlessly.

Optimized manageability

Low-code platforms integrate all aspects of software development, run and maintenance in one seamless, cloud-based platform.

Build-in security

Because low-code platforms provide continuous upgrades and patches, you can be sure that you always have a secure environment for your applications.

Improved user experience

Low-code platforms provide a rich set of user interface features that allow for an improved customer and end-user experience. The speed of low-code development allows you to quickly add functions or run experiments to test features.

Continuously evolving platforms

Features, technologies and tools are updated continuously on the platform so you can easily provide a market-leading experience that evolves over time.

Business continuity with legacy applications

With low-code you can build a modern front-end that ‘hides’ the legacy back-end. Besides that, you can also build new functionality in low-code and gradually replace legacy without fundamentally impacting the front-end user experience.

Low-code not a fit?

Not all application projects can be covered with low-code. High-code development can be a better idea in the following cases:

  • Applications with a large and highly complex back-end logic
  • Focus on back-end logic instead of front-end
  • Layered data with high volumes
  • Advanced security levels
  • Applications with less changes or additions in the future

Low-code application development approach

Planning low code application

Plan

Every application development project starts with an analysis to understand the business objectives and the parameters of each project. We describe the scope, priorities and the Minimal Viable Product (MVP). We also define a high-level architecture.

Designing and coding low code application

Build or Refactor

Architecture, design and coding of the low-code application can either be performed in co-creation with the customer or can be fully managed by Cegeka.

Our low-code teams have adapted our Agile best practices to match the speed of low-code development. For example, our analysts build screen designs and process flows directly in the low-code platform. We also utilise risk-based testing techniques to balance risk and speed.

As we believe low-code can be ‘deceptively simple’, we maintain a strong focus on architecture, quality and maintainability, as we objectively measure these as KPIs.

Run and optimize low code application

Run and Optimize

When scaling up your low-code applications, the need for other capabilities and technologies will quickly arise. Think of connecting to or replacing legacy applications, still needing to build back-end solutions in traditional code, adding iPaaS for optimized integration, making use of complex cloud infrastructure, etc.

As an end-to-end IT solution provider, Cegeka can help with all of that.

Platform expertise

Success with low-code application development depends on picking the platform that best suits your goals and setting up a solid governance structure. Each solution has unique usability, integration, scalability and configuration capabilities. As a vendor-independent software supplier, we can give you unbiased advice on the best choice for your setup and long- and short-term goals.

The platforms we support include: Outsystems, Mendix and Microsoft Power Platform

DevSecOps and Agile best practices

Low-code can be deceptively simple. However, we still need to apply software engineering best practices to build the right applications with high quality and maintainability.

By making extensive use of DevSecOps and Agile methodologies we can deliver increased business value and responsiveness during our application projects.
