At KPMG, we see low-code as the future of application development and automation.

Low-code platforms can dramatically speed creation of sophisticated enterprise-class applications that incorporate complex business logic, automate workflow and case management activities, integrate with existing information systems, and enable a slick user experience.

Low-code automates basic processes and allows employees with varied levels of experience to quickly develop scalable business applications. Low-code can expand or enhance the functionality of existing information systems as they are shifted to a cloud-computing environment. And they can supplement or even replace existing legacy applications in the back office.

To help ensure that your organization gets the most from low-code development platforms, KPMG recommends adopting the following leading practices:

low-code platforms.

2.  Employ a fail fast, test-and-learn mentality.

3.  Employ or contract with experienced developers for complex application development.


 

4.  Don’t blindly assume that low-code platforms will always be the best, or even the fastest, solution.

5.  Build a center of excellence.
