Rapid application development is a software development methodology that uses tools and techniques to speed up the development process. It relies on prototyping and rapid iterative development to release apps faster and elicit early feedback from business users.
Faster apps releases
Early feedback mechanism
According to Gartner, aPaaS is a cloud service that offers development and deployment environments for application services. An aPaaS platfom provides the ability to build apps iteratively, scale on-demand, provision instantly, and integrate with other services.
BPM software suites serve as solutions to many business problems by enabling automation, monitoring, modeling, and streamlining business processes. Modern BPM platforms bring value for simple business apps without complex customizations.
No code application development employs the visual drag-n-drop development methodology where developers can build template-driven applications without any kind of hand coding. No code platforms are used to build short-term applications with simple UIs.
Apps built without coding
For simple business apps
Customization with coding
meets the sophisticated needs of developers, often used interchangeably with low code application development
is a RAD platform that supports everything from building innovative apps to digital transformation
requires training and often needs the coders to customize applications for complex business logic
platforms are best suited to build quick, simple applications that don’t need any customization
Low code development platforms involve an intuitive visual approach to application development, allowing developers to drag and drop components onto a canvas and then integrate these components using popup dialogs and plain language.
Code easily, transform to full-stack, create bandwidth for innovation
Increase the speed of app delivery exponentially, stay agile, and innovate
Streamline development, reduce waste, and fast-forward application delivery
Customize readable code with ease, seamlessly incorporate complex business logic
Enable close collaboration between teams and subject matter experts
Build and modernize business apps that streamline digital operations and create personalized experiences
Transform your solution into a platform and build an ecosystem to seize new market opportunities
Face-lift existing applications while extending existing systems using APIs or rewritten applications
Low code platforms offer a WYSIWYG development environment where developers can drag and drop components to design responsive user interfaces that adapt to a device’s screen resolution. Some platforms like WaveMaker also offer out-of-the-box templates for commonly used layouts and screens such as dashboards.
Low code platforms are expected to provide a visual approach for developers to connect to data sources and embed data elements directly into the application. Platforms like WaveMaker also allow professional developers to design data models and configure business logic directly.
Low-code platforms are expected to streamline and speed up the application delivery process with zero DevOps. Such platforms, like WaveMaker, also offer a single point of control for app maintenance and updates, they extend the capabilities to security, governance, infrastructure auto-scaling, and more.
