According to Forrester, the software market will continue to grow through 2017 and beyond to a tune of $634 billion dollars. With a clearly defined market and hot demand, organizations will continue to place software development at the top of their priorities.
Just having priorities however, is not enough. According to MWD Advisors, a survey of CIOs indicates that 69% are worried that their teams are struggling to keep up with rising digital expectations. In other words, a deficit of talent is preventing organizations from achieving their greatest potential.
One of the solutions around this is low-code deployment platforms, or technology that enables rapid transformation with minimal coding, quick setup, and fast deployment. Additionally, low-code can also increase employee engagement throughout the organization. Consider the following benefits:
- Innovation Becomes Everyone’s Priority: In traditional organizations, development is left to engineering. While this is ideal for some, low-code breaks down the barriers to technical innovation by giving everyone a stake in the game. With few barriers to entry, everyone can contribute to growth.
- Increased Employee Engagement: In Silicon Valley, engineers get all the glory. With Low Code solutions, everyone can be the star. As long as value is delivered, any employee can increase their engagement in the company, which in turn increases employee happiness and retention.
- Accelerate Digital Transformation: Digital transformation is every organization’s buzzword, but who said it had to only be for specific people? Low code allows everyone to get involved, thereby accelerating digital transformation outcomes.
- New Skill Development: A challenge with many organizations is keeping employee skills fresh. Low Code platforms provide additional areas of growth which benefit both employees and organizations.
With software adoption accelerating, Low Code platforms appear to be the logical next step in creating accelerated outcomes. With everyone getting involved, higher employee engagement and faster digital transformation are possible, lowering CIO worries.
