Digital transformation is a big leap towards the growth of business and economy while making it imperative to make this transformation accessible to all. It might sound simple because there are very less enterprises which are not digitally empowered. Although, what goes into this digital conversion is much more technical than beginner level knowledge of digitisation. We all might be aware of codes. Not the ones used to deliver secret messages, but codes as a language.
Coding is the computer language used to develop software programmes and operate computer systems. Software engineers and developers use various programming languages for decrypting commands on a system. A Manpower Goups’s survey states that 54% companies globally reported talent shortages in 2020. This proves the existence of a large skill gap in organisations. Having said that, coding is a highly technical task, and thus needs to have maximum skilled talents to code and create IT solutions. This becomes inaccessible for most of the enterprises. This is where low-code automation steps in.
What is Low-Code/ No-code Automation?
Low-code automation enables automation processes with minimal coding. This method requires less skill in the area of computer coding and programming. Low-code automation uses visual interfaces and models to create software programmes. Low-code automation uses less coding and thus needs a technical talent by side. Whereas no-code automation is solely based on visual representations, and drag and drop interface. This method does not require any skill in coding for the process of automation.
They use visual IDE, RPA and backend connections. Since they do not require manually coding everything, low code/ no-code automation enables more productivity under less costs. Low-code automation saves time using visual templates and increases agility and resilience of enterprises. A Gartner report says that over 50% of medium to large enterprises will adopt Low-Code Application Platform (LCAP) as one of their strategic application platforms, by 2023.
Impact of Low-code automation
- Increase in productivity since it eliminates the task of coding and more softwares is automated in less time.
- Cost-effective because it takes lesser time to develop and does not require highly skilled professionals. This reduces the cost of recruiting skilled talents.
- Low-code automation makes automation accessible for all organisations and demands less complexity and skill for digital transformation.
- Automation becomes more agile by using drag and drop solutions, visual UI. Low-code automation makes ITOps much faster and easier.
- Low-code automation helps in the development of low-maintenance robotic process automation (RPA). Low-code RPA can use Graphical User Interface (GUI) to create automated programmes for user interaction.
The Best Way to Achieve Automation
Gregory Webb in a Forbes article says, “With the power of low-code automation, application owners can launch workflows that initiate required changes on-demand, freeing up IT engineers’ time to focus on advancing more strategic initiatives.” Low-code/no-code automation is the bright future of automation and artificial intelligence. It eases up the technical complexities of software developments and democratizes digital transformation for all.
