Software Development

What I learnt today: What is Low-Code ?

Today I tried to make a short introduction to low-code.
I tried to read a few articles and watched a explanatory video that helped me to understand what is low-code
Especially low-code is announced to be a game changer for the efforts of enterprise companies to complete digital transformation successfully

As the name implies in a self explanatory way, the amount of code required to build an app is low or less than custom application development.
Of course, if you code less for the same output when compared with another app that coding takes more time, you have the freedom to try and fail or see if it is successfull or not. Your chance to take two-way decisions gets higher with a fast and cheap development that is the benefit of low-code app development.

Let's now check how SAP explained Low-Code:
Low-code development platform allows users to create applications predominantly through graphical interactions and configuration. They allow for a wider range of participants in the application development process and quicker application creation and deployment, helping organizations meet business needs faster. As the term implies, low-code development platforms greatly reduce, but may not completely eliminate the need to hand-code actions.
The fundamental idea of a low-code development platform is that a wider range of people can contribute actively to application development, and that their target audience is not limited to formal developers.
Low-code development platforms emerged to allow for quick creation and deployment of applications that can address the specific needs of a business organization, while side-stepping the formal software development process.

So the definition from SAP for Low-code is nearly the same of previous explanation.
What is interesting for SAP developers and for me as an ABAP developer who has worked on SAP Screen Personas for years, SAP claims with Slipstream Engine, SAP Screen Personas is a low-code development platform designed to create mobile applications on top of existing SAP functionality.

I know it smells marketing but just to understand and get used to terminology of low-code application development, you can read this low-code guide
