How can companies write their digital transformation story without writing code?


Digital transformation requires a cultural shift in companies in terms of the technological capability of their workforce

Meta description: Thanks to no-code platforms, companies can sustainably achieve their digital transformation, keeping an eye on the future. Here’s how.

Digital transformation requires a cultural shift in companies in terms of the technological capability of their workforce. However, at the operational level, the degree of digital transformation is linked to the degree of agility of a company.

An agile business that regularly automates redundant paper-based procedures is well on its way to digital transformation.

Even though most companies understand that automation leads to higher KPIs and business success, the average level of automation in organizations is still around 20%.

Here are some possible explanations:

1. Management lacks the vision and motivation to automate outdated applications and create an agile workforce that can adapt to changing technology, processes, and business needs.

2. Organizations lack the tools to develop automation solutions in a fast, agile and cost-effective way.

3. Organizations fail to effectively define the scope of automation. They decided to automate everything but ended up not automating anything. There is no single automation solution, and finding the best solution takes time and effort. Some automation solutions, for example, are simple to set up but have few features (you can automate but not customize workflows).

4. Organizations lack flexible staff (where non-programmers can create process automation applications). Instead, their in-house or outsourced technology teams are solely responsible for automating the workflow. A large IT backlog can overwhelm project teams and undermine the innovation initiative.

The lack of code can be a game-changer for businesses

70% of large-scale automation projects fail to meet their goals. Traditional development approaches (traditional coding and low-code development) have not held up well over time and are out of step with today’s digital economy.

When it comes to implementing enterprise-wide automation, No-code ticks all the boxes.

• It makes software creation more accessible to everyone.
• It promotes diversity by turning non-technical workers into citizen developers (professional users who build applications with no-code platforms).
• It reduces dependency on IT departments.
• It allows seamless customizations.

Breaking down the benefits of no-code

1. Non-technical staff (HR, marketers, salespeople, etc.) can build custom apps by dragging and dropping components (like lego bricks) – without writing a single line of code – with the right platform without code. They can play with no-code technology, feeling empowered and inspired to contribute to rapid innovation.

2. No-code applications can be easily monitored and maintained by IT teams. Instead of being burdened with day-to-day troubleshooting, they can use their knowledge to achieve larger innovative goals.

3. Compared to traditional or low-code development, the software development lifecycle with no-code application development is significantly shorter. Therefore, no-code is ideal for scenarios involving continuous iterations and agile transformations. It minimizes costs by allowing business users to participate in the solution development process (reducing the need for highly skilled or experienced programmers).

4. To drastically reduce process difficulties, companies should aim for 100% automation. In other words, they should aim for 100% no-code adoption. Business and technical teams can collaborate to move to a paperless environment by creating intelligent automation solutions for their critical goals using no-code platforms. There are also no-code systems that can automate CRM, helpdesk, travel and expense management, and organizational training management, to name a few.

5. Launching your MVP (a preliminary but usable version of your product) is a smart way to assess your business model and stay on track with digital transformation. MVPs help develop a shared understanding of what works and what doesn’t in the end-user experience. This could give you ideas for positioning your product competitively and making the best use of your resources.

No-code platforms are designed to create a working MVP with a significantly shorter software development life cycle (SDLC) and faster time to value than traditional coding. You can shift your focus from technical issues to user experience and no-code marketing tactics. Plus, you can quickly respond to stakeholder feedback by modifying your solution on the fly.

6. Transforming existing services, skills and processes into digital assets is only one aspect of digital transformation. It also extends enterprise capabilities by combining functional third-party solutions with no-code applications.

No-code platforms easily integrate current systems with legacy technologies and configure APIs using plug-in components. They can graphically represent all important software components, including third-party integrations, in a visual user interface that allows for easy customization.

These third-party integrations can help businesses do things like:

• Don’t miss the essential solutions on the market.
• Increase operational efficiency
• Extend the life of legacy systems

Why no-code is essential for the future of companies?

Organizations around the world are migrating to a hybrid workforce model, where IT support for remote business users may not be available on demand. Non-technical staff should embrace no-code development rather than overloading remote or onsite IT teams with routine troubleshooting.
Digital transformation is no longer an option but a need for survival. It’s time for companies to start harnessing the potential to democratize application development and accelerate innovation by enabling business users to build solutions without writing a single line of code rather than overburdening IT teams. remote or on-site with routine troubleshooting. No-code platforms are growing and providing a great opportunity for business and IT leaders to achieve their key strategic goals, the most important of which is digital transformation.
