Applications are tools to get things done, be it on your desktop, tablet, or mobile device. Commercial apps tend to address most of the needs of today’s small to midsize businesses (SMBs). Most, but not all. Whether your business is a multinational enterprise or just a five-person basement operation, there will come a day when you encounter a deal or a process that simply can’t be addressed by off-the-shelf, third-party software. That’s when you’ll face the multi-headed hydra that is the custom, in-house development project.
The easier you can build and deploy working apps to complete a specific task or solve a particular problem on a team or throughout your organization, the more efficiently you’ll be able to address any sudden requirements. In an effort to make the app-creation process easier on the IT department and, at the same time, more accessible to everyday business users, businesses have begun to turn to low-code development platforms.
