Tech Tuesday: Seven low-code tools to boost your business and bridge the skills gap

Dynamic Business’s Tech Tuesdays column is dedicated to the businesses and products that have made great contributions to the tech industry, are pushing the boundaries of technology, and are redefining the future. 

With technology’s ever-increasing presence in our lives and businesses across all industries becoming digital, there is a steady demand for IT skills. The aim is to bridge the talent gap and allow people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds who lack higher education to compete. This column aims to inform readers about innovative technology that can simplify their lives. Let’s begin!

In this week’s edition, we’ve gathered a list of low-code solutions that can be game changers for developers and organisations that now need to spend less time on time-consuming manual coding processes, more time-solving business challenges, and provide faster answers. 

Campaign Monitor

Mendix

Mendix is a Siemens business and global leader in low-code/no-code application development, helping businesses develop enterprise-ready apps at scale and with ease. 

Rapid application delivery has become indispensable to business activities in a pandemic-disrupted world. 

However, traditional application development is a long process that often fails to deliver the intended results. The skills shortage has only aggravated this software crisis, with companies failing to develop and deliver applications in time to achieve business goals. Businesses need a solution to help them achieve the right outcomes faster despite a shortage of full-fledged IT professionals. 

Enter Mendix’s low-code application development platform. With an enterprise-grade visual development approach, drag-and-drop components, model-driven logic and an intuitive interface, Mendix empower organisations to build cloud-native applications more than 10X faster than usual.

­MATLAB by Mathworks

Low-code apps like Regression Learner (shown above) provide engineers with a platform to easily compare many algorithms simultaneously without relying on many lines of code. 

MathWorks created MATLAB to help engineers and scientists do their best work. MATLAB is the easiest, most productive, low-code computing environment for technical professionals across all industries. Math, graphics, and programming apps are designed with workflows aligned with how engineers and scientists think.

Engineers are looking for ways to shorten production cycles, lower project costs, and bridge the gap with data scientists throughout the AI workflow. As more engineers use AI, low code will become a natural extension of any AI-driven work, making interdisciplinary teams more productive and effective.

In these instances, low code helps broaden the users’ AI community and ensure speed and efficiency across projects. Using MATLAB, engineers and researchers with varying AI skills can bring their domain expertise to AI projects using low-code computing.

Most industries’ core systems aren’t designed for innovation. While they may maintain fixed processes well, they lack the layer of innovation needed around those core systems to extract unstructured data and create processes and workflow designs that can ultimately place your business ahead of the curve, catering to a demanding and evolving market.

Low code does just this. Low code puts the tools into your hands, empowering citizen developers to transform key workflows within existing IT protocols, removing the bottleneck to the change and innovation that can occur with complex systems. This ability is essential in today’s market.

Low code allows business users to see a challenge or a need and click-drag-and-drop solution without waiting in the long IT queue. Businesses are at a stage in the market where finding factors that differentiate them from their competitors is priceless. Ultimately, that’s the benefit of low-code technology; businesses are more likely to innovate if implementing the innovation is easy.

It’s a tactical strategy for removing barriers to innovation, allowing businesses to be flexible in a progressive market.

Dataiku is the platform for Everyday AI, with a visual, low, or no-code environment that enables a broad range of people to take on advanced analytics projects. With Dataiku, teams across a company can connect to and prepare data, build predictive models, and deploy AI applications to help make better decisions, streamline processes and improve customer experiences.

Many organisations have realised the value of advanced analytics powered by machine learning and AI. Creating advanced analytics is the purview of expert data scientists, but there are not enough experts to develop and support a high volume of AI projects. To scale AI, companies must empower more people. Overall, any stakeholders can use the platform, with or without knowledge of coding.
