How to select and implement a suitable Low-Code Development Platform
Authors: Sven Hinrichsen, Alexander Nikolenko, Kai Leon Becker, Benjamin Adrian
Abstract: Low-code programming allows the creation of software applications using a graphical user interface with minimal classical programming code ("low code") and without requiring extensive programming knowledge. This puts it in contrast to previous generations of programming languages. The advantages of low-code development are manifold, including the increase of software development capacities through a partial decentralization of the development process, speeding up software development through the low-code approach, and designing software with a strong user-centric focus. Using a low-code development platform can help companies adapt their own business processes to changing requirements more quickly and to make complexity resulting, for example, from heterogeneous customer wishes, manageable. Since many low-code development platforms are available, it is not easy for companies to select and successfully introduce a platform that meets their requirements. For this reason, this article presents a procedure model that assists in the process of selecting and implementing a platform.
