Low-code means more than building apps without code
What is low-code?
Low-Code is an application development technology category that improves speed to value through the support of a graphical, model-driven development methodologies that enable teams to collaborate and rapidly build and deploy, cloud-native applications. Low-code platforms relieve non-technical developers from having to write code while still supporting professional developers by abstracting tedious plumbing and infrastructure tasks required in application development. Working together, developers in the business and IT create, iterate, and release applications in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional methods. This low-code application development enables production of a full range of app types for disparate use cases. These app types range from upgrading legacy applications to IoT-enabled smart apps.
Components of a low-code platform
Mendix’s low-code platform brings app development into the future
Empower a continuum of developers
Introduce citizen developers to application development with WYSIWYG tools for creating functional prototypes and productivity applications rapidly. Provide professional developers with an IDE that enhances their productivity and enables them to communicate in an easy to understand visual way.
Promote iterative development
Integrated project management, collaboration, and feedback tools share the domain specific knowledge of the business and professional developers to communicate requirements, iterate on applications as a team, and respond to customers with agility.
Create smart experiences
Incorporate next generation technologies like IoT, blockchain, and artificial intelligence into applications without needing specialized skills.
Deploy web-scale applications
Release applications to the environment you choose with flexible deployment capabilities to the cloud or on premises using Cloud Foundry, or Docker with Kubernetes.
