  7. 7. You could list a few benefits of low-code platforms, but the main advantage is speed. When you’re delivering applications with low- code platforms, you don’t have to worry about coding rules for screen sizes, scalability, traffic routing, or any other time-consuming pieces.

  9. 9. Eliminating as much coding with out-of- the-box functionality means you can get to production faster. And for businesses, there’s nothing better than cutting a multi- year project down to just a few months- maybe even weeks. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  10. 10. However, you have to temper expectations when it comes to low-code platforms—especially once you get down to the differentiated aspects of your business. Speed is great, but keep these disadvantages in mind to avoid racking up unmanageable technical debt: Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  11. 11. • Limited Integration Options:  You can’t look at low-code platforms in a vacuum. There are so many different tools and products that combine to define your digital transformation strategy. But when you rely heavily on low-code platforms, you’ll start to run into integration problems (especially with your legacy systems). For systems that are core to your business, you can’t sacrifice custom integrations just to move quickly. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  12. 12. • Lack of Customization:  Data integration is one thing, but the modular components of low-code platforms limit application customization as well. Once you get neck deep in a new system, you’ll want to customize a specific component to meet your specific needs. But instead of customizing the system, you’ll be forced to change your business to meet the capabilities of the low-code platform. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  13. 13. • Security and Reliability Concerns:  When you build a custom platform, you know you can rely on it because you know it inside and out. With low- code, you take on certain risks because you aren’t in complete control. What happens if you’re tied into a platform and the company gets acquired? You could end up with a tool you never wanted and have to manage many complexities you never expected. The lack of control also causes security problems. If a disgruntled employee at your low- code vendor decides to build a backdoor, your mission-critical system becomes vulnerable. This is a risk you can’t take when the system is part of your core differentiation. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  14. 14. Despite these challenges, low-code development can play an important role in your digital transformation approach. They excel in proof-of- concept scenarios because you can execute an idea quickly before diving into more intricate development. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  15. 15. Or, if you need a short-term answer to a business problem, low-code can give you a solution as long as you understand you may need to tailor a custom app to business needs down the road. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  16. 16. When you need a differentiated system, custom development is the better path— but that doesn’t mean it has to be slow. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE

  19. 19. There’s a common misconception that custom development is automatically slow. But custom engineering doesn’t have to take years. You can take advantage of agile processes to get an MVP in just a few months. Just like in the waterfall vs. agile debate, you can’t base your decision on speed—it has to be about business needs.

  20. 20. We found this out first-hand when we worked on ParkHub. The original ParkHub idea was built using a low-code platform. However, the main parking system idea started to come to form and we had to make a decision as we went to the next level. Get the full write up of this slideshare HERE
  21. 21. For all of the reasons we’ve discussed so far, we went with custom development. But it didn’t take us years to execute custom development for ParkHub. Within 3 months of development, we went from discussing taking the next steps to successfully parking our first event—the American Country Music Award Festival.
