The demand for mobile applications is drastically increasing day-by-day with the digital era sweeping across the modern business landscape. Traditional methodology of application development simply does not fit into today’s market and it is expensive, both in time and money. Many businesses either completely rely on their IT department and work around time constraints or they use outsourced resources and third-party vendors.

To meet today’s business requirements, companies are looking for ways to build enterprise-grade mobile applications, which can be delivered in a few hours. Fortunately, there is a solution called Rapid Mobile Application Development (RMAD), a No-Code platform that is fundamentally changing the way software applications are built and delivered.

No-Code development platforms bring IT and the business together, enabling more rapid, iterative and collaborative development. With the use of No-code development platforms, Companies are becoming more responsive. They give Citizen Developers the high-end tools needed to create, deploy, and manage enterprise-grade applications quickly and efficiently.

"By 2020 at least 70 percent of large enterprises will have established successful citizen development policies."  - Gartner

Top 5 Reasons to Choose No-Code App Development:

#1 Use of Internal Resources
One of the biggest reasons why companies opt for a No-code platform for app development is to offset a lack of internal IT skills and/or internal resources and costs associated with both. Companies without in-house skilled developers tend to outsource which is cost prohibitive and can lead to issues in areas such as time sink and hidden costs. Using a No-code platform, companies empower their business users and citizen developers to easily create business applications based on their needs without requiring the additional resources; any user or citizen developer with some knowledge of technical skills can create applications.

#2 Quick Response to Change Management
Business requirements are constantly in flux making it difficult for software developers to change coding midway through development. With No-code platforms, making changes in applications, or enhancing their functionalities, is much easier than traditional methods of application development. No-code platforms help businesses eliminate the backlog of applications and enable rapid time-to-market by streamlining the development process. Users can instantly make changes and create a better experience as well as track efficiency and keep business processes automated.

#3 Fast Delivery of Applications
The biggest advantage of choosing No-code platforms is their ability to develop the business application in minutes or just a few hours. This significantly reduces development time compared to traditional methods and deliver apps faster. In traditional application development, developers manually write, or hand-code, every line of code. With No-code platforms, citizen developers/business users use an intuitive drag-and-drop feature for creating, configuring, and customizing industry-wide business applications.

#4 Lower the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
No-code platforms drastically reduce development time and efforts resulting in lower cost of ownership. This is a cost-effective substitute for outsourcing resources and enables businesses to reduce the burden on their IT teams and keep up with the demands for digital innovation.

#5 Lower Risk & Higher ROI
Using a No-Code platform, companies’ business users/citizen developers can easily build and customize applications with the improved user interface. As a result, in-house developers can focus on solving other pressing business problems rather than struggle with application development challenges. Moreover, No-Code platforms help bridge skill gaps and lower company risk of catastrophic failure, resulting in higher ROIs.

"The market demand for app development will grow at least five times faster than IT's capacity to deliver it through to 2021." - Gartner
