Low-code, the new asset of a successful digital transformation – EconomyMatin

The digital transformation is inevitably accelerating, leaving those who do not seize it for the benefit of companies and offers that did not exist ten years ago. With the adoption of the cloud, SaaS offers have flourished and the number of platforms that allow you to model your own applications according to your needs is becoming more democratic. Workflow solutions, iBPMs, and more recently RPA have multiplied, allowing more people to participate in the digital transformation.

In this logic, so-called low-code or no-code platforms have emerged to allow each employee to create their own applications, robots and / or interconnect pre-existing applications with each other. These solutions offer graphical interfaces that offer libraries of connectors so that everyone can create their own working environment and automate or even hyper-automate processes that were previously without real added value. This low-code / no-code market will therefore accelerate the digital transformation processes of companies and create new standards (the Gartner firm estimates that in 2024, two-thirds of IT projects will use this type of platform).

Development in no code will not be without risk

The movement is without return, it is desirable, but it is not without risk. Between the proliferation of SaaS applications and the rise of solutions that flourish autonomously in all departments of the company without necessarily global management, CIOs are overwhelmed and managing access rights to a particular application is becoming a challenge. real challenge. In this sense, the existing IAM solutions are no longer sufficient today to manage both the multiplication of applications, employee movements and remote working methods.

The challenge for CIOs: reconciling low-code digital transformation with compliance and security

A major challenge for companies will be to promote the use of low-code platforms and at the same time to strengthen the management of authorizations and data access security in an increasingly restrictive regulatory context. It is therefore fundamental to rely on new generation solutions that natively support access management and their maintenance through no code platforms. In addition, by integrating the collaborative dimension, it will be possible to create and manage ad hoc teams and to monitor the progress of developments made in order to accelerate and secure employees’ digital transformation initiatives.
