2 truths and 1 lie: Low-code rapid application development

My dad likes to say I don’t know which end of the hammer you’re supposed to use. That’s why, when it comes to building things, I stick to sand castles. And when it comes to building software applications, I leave it to the pros.

These days, the pros I work with here at Hyland are all about low-code, rapid application development. Using a low-code content services platform, you empower your organization to quickly configure business applications – including case management and process automation solutions – to fill the gaps between your line-of-business systems.

You also minimize the need for costly custom coding and replace antiquated departmental databases with applications that seamlessly connect data, processes, and related information. This ultimately allows you to deliver more-informed decisions and improved service levels for your customers.

Choose wisely

Now that we have some of the basics down, it’s time to play the game.

Which statement below is a lie?

Be the first person to leave the correct answer in the comments below – with the correct explanation of why the lie is a lie – and we’ll reveal you as the winner in the next edition. You’ll be famous, just like our previous winners: Giovanna, Michael Sanders, and Bernhard.

Here we go:

1. By utilizing rapid application development on a low-code platform, you enable your organization to build new applications on the same underlying platform, providing benefits like:

  • Improving the flexibility of your organization and its systems
  • Enabling a faster rollout of new applications
  • Lowering the total cost of ownership per application

2. The primary benefit of low-code, rapid application development is improved integrations between the core LOB systems your organization relies on every day. Additional benefits include:

  • The ability to foster closer collaboration amongst application designers and business stakeholders
  • Fewer resources allocated to custom coding, scripting, and bug-fixing – allowing your skilled developers to focus on mission-critical systems and tasks
  • Flexibility to quickly and easily adapt solutions to changing business needs

3. With the ability to manage documents, processes, and data, a comprehensive enterprise information platform supports application creation by providing a low-code framework for configuring business apps. Making such a platform part of your enterprise application strategy:

  • Reduces the number of information silos and disparate solutions you need to support
  • Provides out-of-the-box functionality that you can rapidly expand, modify, and improve
  • Minimizes the need for resource-intensive custom coding
  • Offers a lower total cost for solution development
  • Achieves a quicker time-to-benefit for applications
