No-code development is an approach that allows software engineers and non-technical users to build applications and automate workflows through visual modeling tools and configuration. It dramatically speeds up the delivery of new applications compared to traditional development approaches, thus allowing companies to innovate faster and resolve IT bottlenecks. By providing easy-to-use yet powerful tools for end-to-end application development, including tools for UI/UX design, AI/ML modeling, and built-in automated QA, no-code empowers every employee to become a proficient software creator without learning how to code.
Does no-code help eliminate all coding? In many cases, code cannot be fully replaced with no-code, especially when it comes to large-scale enterprise-grade applications with complex business logic. The good news is that users of no-code platforms without deep technical skills, i.e., citizen developers, can still build a broad variety of applications for their daily needs without using code – by using prebuilt drag-and-drop components, visual workflow automation tools, and intuitive configuration wizards. They can also easily reuse previously created applications as composable functional blocks for their new solutions.
