The Low-Code/No-Code Movement: More Disruptive Than You Realize

The burgeoning Low-Code/No-Code space has become an extraordinarily disruptive page in the enterprise digital story, leading to extensive confusion among enterprises and vendors alike.

There can be many bumps on the road to the future.

There can be many bumps on the road to the future.

The big analyst firms aren’t much help: Gartner calls it High-Productivity Application Platform-as-a-Service, while Forrester divides the world into Low-Code Development and Mobile Low-Code Development – merely adding to the confusion.

But even the Low-Code and No-Code terminology is itself misleading, as the distinction isn’t about whether people need to code or not. The distinction is more about the types of people using these platforms to build applications.

In the No-Code corner are the ‘citizen developers’ – business users who can build functional but generally limited apps without having to write a line of code. The Low-Code corner, in contrast, centers on professional developers, streamlining and simplifying their work – delivering enterprise-class applications with little or no hand-coding.

So far so good. Confusing, yes – but focusing on personas rather than coding provides a useful frame of reference. “You shouldn’t have to choose between No or Low Code,” explains Chris Obdam, CEO at Betty Blocks. “Innovation starts with Citizen Developers often, but after the first phase, IT should be able to continue the work.”

True enough, but even this emerging model of the Low-Code/No-Code marketplace is itself ripe for its own disruption. And you ain’t seen nothing yet.
