Tell me more about Plant an App & what they do?

Plant an App is a high productivity development platform that allows users to rapidly build full-scale web applications. The Plant an App platform includes four levels of software development, along with a wide library of pre-built tools to accelerate application building. Real-time collaboration is made possible, with developers and business users being able work on the platform simultaneously. Furthermore, API management helps you organise your projects in one place, while advanced integrations make it simple to connect with other proprietary systems.

What exactly can you build with Plant an App?

Being highly scalable, organisations across different sectors can use the Plant an App
platform to quickly build a range of different web applications. Some examples include customer portals, powerful dashboards, and data creation front ends. With the support of professional developers, it is possible to create even more bespoke applications.

Who can build applications with Plant an App?

Plant an App is tailored for both business users and professional developers. Thanks to visual drag-and-drop formats, even employees without a knowledge of coding languages can build applications. This has given rise to a new persona of user, commonly referred to as a “citizen developer” – somebody from the business domain who creates applications outside of the IT team. A citizen developer empowered by low-code and no-code can build a variety of solutions.

Why choose Plant an App over other low-code platforms?

Differentiating itself from other vendors, Plant an App is a powerful low-code platform that grants speed and accessibility, yet without compromising the scope and scalability of custom coding. And with both low-code and no-code at your disposal, you have a truly comprehensive development package. At every stage of an application’s lifecycle, you can therefore expect a seamless experience with zero barriers to creativity.

Is Plant an App a low-code or no-code platform?

Both – Plant an App is a hybrid of no-code and low-code. This offers more development opportunities for organisations with varying coding aptitudes and resources. This still includes the capability for developers to plug-in their own custom code, allowing for the design of applications with more advanced functionality.

How far can Plant an App take development?

No matter if you are a business user or a skilled programmer, you can create fully-fledged applications within a range of use-cases. For those organisations who have a more technical team in place, they will be able to create even more potent solutions. While there are a myriad of applications that can be built using the platform, some of the most demanding and complex cases may require custom coding.

What is the difference between low-code and no-code development?

No-code is a visual software tool that uses drag-and-drop features and graphical interfaces in place of complex coding languages. This means that even non-technical employees can develop their own applications. Low-code development shares the visual, modular approach of no-code, but offers the option to include custom scripting. This combines the accessibility and high output of no-code software with the customisation of traditional coding, serving as a middle-ground between the two. Low-code primarily caters to citizen developers and professional programmers.

How can I decide whether it’s good for my organisation?

If your organisation requires a way of rapidly creating in-house applications with a low
barrier to entry, then Plant an App could be a valuable investment. In addition to accelerating development cycles, businesses with decoupled or dated systems can benefit from Plant an App’s integrated suite of development tools, modernising the way they deliver digital solutions. The platform’s true value can be seen across its diverse use-cases, where it has helped a host of organisations create in-house applications within budget, and ahead of time.

What are the deployment options?

Plant an App gives its users full control over the way they deploy applications. Customers are offered a choice of on-premise and cloud-based deployment, allowing for greater flexibility and governance.

Does the platform remove developers?

No, Plant an App brings on board developers from the get-go. In fact, low-code and no-code platforms are unlikely to replace custom coding in the near future; you will need developer input when bestowing MVP’s with more advanced functionality. Rather than seeking to remove developers, low code platforms like Plant an App look to empower them, boosting productivity, minimising repetition, and granting greater team input. In practise, developers are able to create integrations between systems that business users can then harness to create the remaining 95% of an application on their own. Plant an App will always have a place for skilled software specialists, removing the burden of undifferentiated tasks, whilst providing more space for collaboration.

Will I receive support when using the platform?

Absolutely – this is an important part of Plant an App’s community-driven philosophy. You can expect to receive continued help and mentoring when partnered with Plant an App. This includes video tutorials from low-code experts, along with access to our community portal for the latest updates and techniques. Our Low-Code Academy also offers a wealth of resources and knowledge to better equip users on their development journey.

Is the platform extensible?

Plant an App has an impressive repository of integrations and add-ons, allowing you to seamlessly connect your data to the platform’s suite of tools. Whether it be GitHub or Salesforce, Plant an App has an integration, API or database query designed to keep you connected to the wider digital ecosystem.
