Low-code – why now and what next?

For any organizations that have been using a form of low-code technology for the past decade or more, predictions that 2021 is ‘the year of low-code’ might seem somewhat vacuous. However, the reality is that the low-code platforms that have been around for decades are very different beasts to those hitting the market today. The technology has undergone quite a journey since its inception in the early 2000s, having developed through three different generations.

The first two generations still have their uses today, but we’re seeing the emergence of a ‘stack’ approach to low code, ranging from developer tools to simple workflow builders – two very opposite ends of the scale. Yet, the low-code trend is still seeing change as well as growth.
