Indian IT Companies turn to Low-Code Solutions

March 11, 2021

Indian IT services providers are seeing increased traction for “low-code/no-code” technology solutions, as clients look to build and customize their own applications. “Low-code/no-code” solutions do not require coding to build an application. They allow non-tech professionals or citizen developers to quickly build apps through simple drag and drop features and user-friendly layouts. At a time where entire workforces have shifted to a remote work model, businesses have begun using such technology to create apps. According to a Gartner forecast, low-code/no-code will be responsible for over 65% of application development activity by 2024. Though these tools pose some threat to Indian service firms, help from service firms will still be required to ensure customer data is safe. Security and governance issues will emerge when such technology is in use—for example when non-technical experts build applications that collect or process client data.
