Business users leveraging Low-Code

Product Road Map

Citizen Developers

The functions and responsibilities of Business Users can vary drastically, often being defined by the day-to-day role thye play, the type of product they are selling, the industry they are situated in, and even their specific company. Some positions require a more technical background, while others veer towards the realm of public management.

What all Business Users do share in common though, is accountability for their organisation's ability to grow and prosper in today's competitive ever changing markets. Many Business Users require to be multi-skilled, able to lay out road-maps, run design sprints, understand customer requirements, perform market assessments, track success metrics and more. With so many daily tasks to accomplish, it stands to reason that Business Leaders need to make use of whatever advantage they can find. And for any that find themselves needing to invest in or develop SaaS products, low-code may just be one of the most important solutions for them.

Low-code is a development tool that minimises the amount of coding required to design applications and processes. As well as accelerating the development of apps through visual software and UI features, it allows both professional and citizen developers to create bespoke solutions to their business needs. For any Business User, this is a tremendous asset with myriad possibilities. Let’s consider some of the most useful...

Enhance your Design Stages

If ambiguous road-maps and unclear wireframes have ever limited your design scope – and caused concern amongst key stakeholders – then low-code will be a welcome addition. 

Low-code development not only expedites a product’s design stage, but also brings it to life. Drag-and drop features, pre-built templates, and improved wireframe drafting will create a clearer vision of your concept’s final outcome. Compared to traditional design processes, low-code prototyping tools enable Business Leaders and their teams to make greater strides in a product’s early stages, even if they are not familiar with coding languages. Rather than months of hand-coding, you could have a working prototype in your hands in a matter of days. 

Banish the backlog with workflow automation

Guiding a team through a product’s development and lifecycle is an important competency for a Business Leader. However, many may feel as though they are spread thin. External competition and fluctuating market developments often call for fast-tracked product cycles and brutal turn-arounds. In order to keep you and your team on track, you’ll need an efficient workflow process that can handle the strain and adapt continuously.

By employing a low-code platform, it is easier and faster than ever to create fully-automated workflows right out of the box. Intuitive no-code tools streamline the workflow design process, meaning even citizen developers can configure steps and create custom business logic. No computer science degree required.

And for Business Leaders looking to fully embrace digitisation, look no further than intelligent low-code automation. Utilising AI capabilities, intelligent automation removes the waste of human resources on mundane (yet still important) tasks. By recognising patterns and evaluating key data, intelligent low-code automation is able to adapt on its own, with behaviour characterised by a range of finely-tuned inputs. This is especially useful if you manage a wide portfolio of products, and are looking to reduce the number of hours you spend on time-draining administrative duties.
