Choosing the ideal low code platform is a major challenge for enterprises. Balancing short-term and long-term gains during the evaluation process is crucial. Some platforms may be cheap initially, but would lead to disastrous long-term results. The best low code platform has zero vendor lock-in, provides complete control, and offers freedom to deploy on any infrastructure.
Low Code is a game-changing category that offers various platforms to accelerate your business. Even though these platforms may look similar, they differ fundamentally in their approach and operation. Therefore, it is crucial to consider both short-term and long-term implications while comparing these platforms. Our expert product evangelists have been in the business for over two decades and have identified 12 critical capabilities that should be considered for their comparison.
Low-code platforms offer a solution for the delays that often come with traditional development for professional developers. An open, standards-based, and secure low-code platform stands as a superior alternative to traditional methods, enabling the creation of apps with comparable or even better quality in about half the time. It's important to view low-code as more than just a quick fix; a strategic, long-term approach using the right low-code platform can help developers and IT teams incorporate the best practices of traditional methodologies, resulting in modern experiences created in significantly less time.

In essence, an open low-code platform that produces reliable and secure code is preferred by both professional developers and enterprises.
