It’s well known that Supply Chain and Logistics are going through dramatic transformations and evolutions into the digital age. These industries are able to overcome challenges with the appliance of IoT, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), process automation, data analysis, software development, etc.
To make this happen, Supply Chain and Logistics enterprises need to gather and access data, increase visibility, and even manage complex operations and processes. This is where Low-Code and No-Code Development is playing a huge and important role.
Now, to clear things up, let’s make a quick review about what each of these terms means:
This is a visual method for development. Low-code basically lets you abstract and automate every part and step of an application lifecycle to create a framework for different solutions. The methods applied in low-code are drag-and-drop or adding application components to create a whole app, instead of extensive coding language. Low-code requires some programming understanding.
Our current reality shows that few people in the Supply Chain or Logistics industries have knowledge or expertise regarding developing or programming, that’s the reason why digital transformation demand is going higher than expected, but, low-code and no-code app development can lessen this challenge.
No-code and low-code empowers Supply Chain and Logistics employees to act on their creativity to develop productive and profitable tools based on their needs. On the other hand, these development solutions can boost the proactivity of employees based on certain industry departments which means the employee engagement is increased provide the tools to work faster, diminish app backlogs, and link trending technology with legacy systems.
Developers put supply chain customers in control of their own applications and software.
Customers will be able to easily build supply chain alternatives related to interfaces, integrations, and applications.
Customers will reduce their costs, risks, delays, issues, and more.
Specific configurations can be designed and developed to meet the certain and unique needs of the customers.
Saves money. Supply chain companies don’t have to bring external development companies or teams to develop software solutions.
Low-code and no-code development platforms can help companies link the skills gap by enabling existing IT staff and non-developers to build mobile apps quickly and easily. - SCTimes
Faster development. It takes up to 6 months to develop a traditional app or software solution. In the case of low-code and no-code, staff can update features along with the development process.
The amount of coding needed is reduced. Existing employees and staff can be able to develop sophisticated and functional apps.
