Higher, faster, further – if it is about digital innovations in Germany, in theory all companies want to set standards. In practice, however, this still poses a number of problems. In which areas does digital innovation help companies, and where can “quick wins” be achieved that have a direct impact on digital corporate success?
Unfortunately, the time of “quick wins” is already over in many areas. It is no longer easy to create a digital application that makes a significant contribution to business success.
The release and development frequency of new digital applications and platforms is constantly increasing. Speed, functionality and design are among the most important decision criteria for users. This means that there is already considerable cut-throat competition for digital assets.
What companies need is a platform that enables them to create such a digital asset quickly and with high standards of features, user experience and freedom of development. If possible, with less dependence on the expensive and sought-after development professionals.
Low Code Development is the best answer to exactly this requirement profile. Because with the help of these platforms, developers and non-developers, so-called Citizen Developers, can “assemble” applications to a certain extent by selecting and integrating the appropriate components from a large selection of pre-packaged modules. In this way, a digital application is created in a short time and integrated into the management and lifecycle processes.
Although the phenomenon is still in its infancy in many places, especially in Germany, when it comes to practical implementation, the potential for success is obvious.
The empirical study provides the first comprehensive picture of the current status and use of low code development in companies in the DACH region. For this purpose, an empirical survey was conducted with 150 IT and business decision-makers from companies in various industries and size classes. The study thus provides CIOs, CDOs and departmental managers who want to – and have to – reach their customers, partners or employees via (mobile) websites and apps with insights and concrete recommendations for planning and implementing the new technology trend.
