The Application of Low-Code Platforms

“There’s an app for that” is the answer to so many of the challenges we face today. This mentality has generated an enormous demand for apps, with an estimated 750 million new apps needed globally before 2025. Amidst a massive developer shortage of 4 million engineers worldwide, companies struggle to find tech talent.[1]

Facing this developer shortage, companies can enable other collaborators to develop solutions with formula-based programming. Through development in a frame of governance and security, power users can accelerate app and processes development, taking some of the load off of your developers so they can work more efficiently.

The solution software industry has been evolving low-code platforms for exactly this purpose. With simple development languages based on formulas, drag-and-drop apps, and easy layouts, these tools empower non-developers to craft solutions so developers can optimize their workflows. Your organization can create more apps in less time. With these solutions, you can:

Processes Improvements With Low-Code Platforms

With low-code solutions, your company will benefit from:

  • Improved Employee IT satisfaction – More solutions that meet the business requirements, faster.
  • Development Cost Reduction: Up to 45% reduction in development costs.[2]
  • No More Data Silos: No need for bulky, inefficient, unmanaged information silos in programs like Excel. With low-code solutions, IT can govern the security of applications and their data.

Power Platform is part of this revolution with the introduction of Copilot. Copilot, powered by Chat GPT, lets you:

  • Create an app using a natural language description. Power Apps will generate the code.
  • Create applications from images and design files.
  • Create a Natural Language Bot inside your application, so users can ask the app for help.
  • Use natural language to create, edit, or extend flows.
  • Connect Virtual Agents (bots) to data sources like company websites, to answer fundamental questions immediately.
  • Use pre-trained AI models inside your solutions.

Can Power Platform solutions connect with my data?

Power Platform was developed with your data in mind. You can develop applications, processes, and data dashboards from your existing systems and data using connectors. With more than 1,000 connectors available and the option to customize your own, you can link your apps and processes to cloud and content services, databases, and APIs. If these options can’t connect to your application, you can use Robotic Process Automation.
