In our previous articles of this series, we talk about why the stitch and build philosophy of developing technology solutions is the way to go forward and where no-code fits in this philosophy. Today, continuing on that, we shall delve deeper into why it makes sense as a business to adopt no-code in your organisation.
Businesses now more than ever have increasingly fast-evolving requirements and traditional programming has responded with frameworks and solutions for faster execution. We have witnessed framework, runtimes, COTS, DevOps all contributing towards the success of modern application development. However, we have also witnessed that developers’ learning for each of the platforms and the challenges thereof are multi-varied uncontrolled aspects that still lead to slow execution to complex business processes. In all this the business analysts are often removed from what actually is happening underneath the hood. . With no-code and low code solutions, business and domain experts can sit with developers and share the same visualization of the business logic. The definition of a developer itself is changing.
Let’s have a look at where exactly can No-code help businesses.
Due to no-code capabilities, organisations will be able to work without huge IT capabilities and yet deliver better results in an agile manner. This means a direct cost saving as when companies have to outsource tasks or hire professionals, they incur costs while when using a no-code platform, the same requirements can be fulfilled with a smaller yet efficient team.
More Robust Solutions
If no-code enables the ones with relatively lesser expertise to design technical solutions, what do the expert developers do then? They design architectures that run these solutions for you and work on specialized use cases thus leading to robust solutions. These developers now focus more on the logic development of the core business processes, elegant user experiences and change management.
Fast Application Delivery
With the agility that no-code gets in due to the developers not hand-coding each line, businesses will be able to create applications quicker as compared to conventional coding methods. No-code also offers built-in bullet tested, gold class non-functional aspects of an application like security, single sign-on, integrations, data management.
Integrate Changes Quickly
With the evolving nature of demands from the end-users, coders have to change the code midway while creating an application. This costs both time & money and creates frustration among developers as it leads to rework & wastage in time. With no-code, integration of changes becomes easy and enhancement of functionality can happen on the go. With this, the development process is streamlined thus reducing time to market and forming a better customer experience.
Reduction In TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
These platforms can also help you significantly reduce the cost of ownership. The no-code platforms are a very cost-efficient alternative to conventional coding. Since a no-code platform does not require the same efforts and skills as a conventional platform, an organisation can reduce a lot of its burden and think of optimizations and automation at the enterprise level by developing solutions for specific needs.
No-Code and Uncertainty
No-code has also led to fluid teams as developers get more and more involved on the business side and business analysts on the development side. This dislocation leads to a team with higher awareness of things at a higher business level as well as in different teams, leading to readiness for change and empathy for each other make your organisation an overall better organisation. Up to 90% as per 451 research which makes dealing with uncertainty much simpler and tolerable when measured by both time and money.

Who knows, in future this change in workflows will lead to a change in hiring patterns and processes and lead as requirements shift and new roles evolve.
If you think of it, no-code is like riding a bicycle. Once you experience the speed, energy-saving and gush of the wind, why would you ever go back? We would like to know your thoughts on how no-code can help or has helped businesses in developing more robust, quick and cost-efficient solutions. Don’t forget to leave your comments.
