We witnessed a turning point in the progress of software development and the applications that changed the world. The latest applications have a simplified life through an easy application-building process. Modern apps are designed with a simple user interface that adheres to the concepts of low-code development. 

In this article, we will understand everything about low-code development and how the Appian Community Edition allows you to probe and use the Appian Low-Code Platform to develop your applications.

What is Low-Code Development?

Low-code development is the process of creating apps and procedures that require little to no coding. A low-code development platform uses visual interfaces with primary logic and drag-and-drop elements. Users with no coding experience or software development knowledge can use these simple Appian Community tools to create mobile and business applications.

How Does It Work?

Low-code development platforms allow experienced and novice developers to create applications using pre-built code and frameworks.

A low-code development platform consists of three components:

  • GUI for Programming: This drag-and-drop interface allows business users to develop inputs, outputs, and procedures.
  • Integrations for I/O: Corporate data is often saved in databases. LCDPs provide database interfaces. Business programs offer their output through APIs, websites, or apps. LCDs make it simple for users to provide output functions.
  • An Application Manager: LCDPs provide tools for developing, debugging, deploying, and maintaining low-code applications, allowing users to keep them up to date. Customers can utilize these components to create Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) to meet their necessities.

Why Has Low-Code Boomed?

  • It Is Designed for Collaboration: With the COVID-19 outbreak affecting our routine, it is sensible for businesses to pause digital transformation activities and optimize their IT objectives and expenditures. On the contrary, digital transformation is required to navigate risk, innovate, bridge gaps between remote employees, and create new methods to operate and retain consumers. Low-code development is a potential agile tool that enables organizations to meet the new normal by strategically deploying technology. Expediting the creation of new apps and models to keep up with the rapid disruption enables the process.
  • Innovation Is Democratized: Great ideas can come from anyone, not just the strategy or information technology teams. Rising to the difficulties of the present low code is so helpful. Appian Community helps you maximize your resources’ potential by democratizing development and empowering people to create and solve problems swiftly.
  • Aims At Cost-Effective Approaches: Another aspect driving the increased adoption of low-code development is its cost-effectiveness. Firms are looking for ways to cut back and focus on budgets. Low code saves development time by up to 90% and increases cost-effectiveness by allowing enterprises to tap into the innate proficiency of their existing workforce. Low code does this without incurring the excessive expenditures associated with conventional development methods.

What Is No-Code Development?

No-code development is a platform for developing apps without the use of code. Users do not need any coding knowledge to create the applications. It enables both programmers and non-programmers to develop software applications. It is similar to visual programming languages.

Because of the speed and agility, it delivers for enterprises, the demand for No-code development has surged. It has become one of the most user-friendly platforms for developing applications by eliminating the restrictions of conventional development.

How Is Low-Code Different from No-Code?

One significant difference between low-code and no-code platforms is whether they let users code or not. Regardless of the visual interface, all systems prepare code in the background to store the program.

  • Regular users cannot readily access and edit the app’s underlying code on no-code or codeless platforms.
  • Low-code platforms make it easier to access code, and technical people prefer to depend extensively on code while developing low-code apps.

As a result, low-code platforms enable users to develop more complex and personalized applications.

Difference Between Low-Code and No-Code

  Low-Code No-Code
Serves Designers Business, and regular users
Objective Developmental speed Usefulness
Coding Need Low, but noticeable No coding.
Customization Can be customized. Pre-built designs can be changed.
End-to-end Development is available on all platforms. Interfaces have limited functionality.
App Complexity Build complicated apps Build essential apps
Cost-Effective Companies with development staff. Businesses with a weak IT team and high demands.

Benefits of Low-Code App Development

  • Boost Digital Transformation: Every firm is going on a digital transformation path. Low-code development speeds up this approach by including citizen development. With citizen development, anyone, regardless of coding experience, can join the software team and swiftly make amazing apps.
  • Create Customer-Centric Solutions to Enhance the Customer Experience: Businesses can design and deploy customer-centric solutions that improve the customer experience by incorporating relevant people into the application development process. For example, while developing medical software, nurses and technicians will have a clearer understanding of the demand than a software developer who lacks medical experience. As a result, businesses can create customer-centric solutions.
  • Increased Productivity: Productivity rises when IT and non-IT teams collaborate to design apps. Organizations can create and deliver solutions quickly, whether they have graphically attractive designs or feature-rich options. It also elongates deployment cycles.
  • Cost Savings: Low-code app development reduces the requirement for expert coders to complete the creation of an application. As citizen developers create the software, professional developers will add additional features, modifications, integrations, etc. As a result, Appian Community solutions are developed swiftly, and development expenses are lowered. Furthermore, organizations can save on the expense of employing and managing a staff of experienced software engineers.
  • Shortage of Professional Developers: IT businesses today are suffering from a lack of competent IT experts. The rise of smartphones necessitated the creation of many mobile applications. However, the sector cannot match the number of IT workers with the app development requirements. Low-code development addresses this issue by engaging citizen developers.

Common Low-Code Uses

  • Ui Design: Designing a user interface is more complicated than building an application. User interfaces must function across several devices and platforms, from desktops to smartphones and the web. Low code can build interface code for an application’s user interface that can be easily updated when user requirements evolve.
  • Platform Integration: Some low-code solutions can produce settings that allow application integration between platforms, such as a CRM or CMS system, which would be challenging to develop manually.
  • API Generation: Generating an API is time-consuming, especially for older programs that were not intended to use one. Low-code API generators can generate APIs automatically based on the current application code.
  • Business Process Management: Many Business Process Management (BPM) systems have low-code capabilities for developing apps that assist in managing or analyzing data. While these characteristics can be handy for citizen developers who want a basic app occasionally, they can also save experienced developers time when developing more complicated applications that interface with BPM systems.
  • Containerization: Vendors are working to link their low-code platforms with deployment environments, allowing apps to operate within containers. This is the best alternative for enterprises that need to deploy an application to multiple settings swiftly.

Sector Examples of Low-Code Use Cases

  • Education: The primary to higher education landscape is constantly changing. Registrations have been increasing and instructional practices and evaluations are improving, especially with the implementation of hybrid and remote learning amid the pandemic. Appian Community’s low code application can assist schools in developing and rebuilding programs that monitor learning outcomes.
  • Healthcare: Healthcare providers must make patient data available on more platforms while adhering to severe security regulations. Low-code technologies enable developers to create customer-focused apps that interface with business systems on the back end, making it easier for patients to get information. Low-code technologies can help make compliance requirements easier to meet by creating code that adheres to standards.
  • Finance: Customers want user-friendly apps that link to intricate back-end processes. These interfaces must function across numerous platforms and devices. It’s often easier for developers to upgrade a customer-facing, confined app than an extensive old back-end system, particularly one built on an obscure programming language and running on a mainframe.
  • Retail: Retailers must create applications not just to offer their clients’ services but also to manage inventory and order fulfillment in both online and physical stores. Even before the growth of the low-code concept, many businesses battled to thrive in the digital age, but they could not afford to hire a huge team of developers to make all these applications using traditional techniques. Appian Community low-code technologies can assist merchants in developing the software they require at a lower cost.


In our existing environment, the swift adoption of low-code application development indicates our determination to meet obstacles. Low-code development has been around for a while, and the pandemic has highlighted the importance of technology adoption and deployment.  It not only mitigates the impact of COVID-19 but also safeguards and prepares businesses for the long term.

So, have you jumped on board the low-code trend yet? If you haven’t, start now.  Not sure how to get started? Appian Community is a leading low-code development tool that can help you restructure your business to suit changing market demands.

By bringing the potential of Appian low-code features, the Ethnus Codemithra can assist you in starting your low-code adaptation journey. Check out Ethnus Codemithra to learn more about the Appian low-code development program.
