Getronics No-Code Cloud (NCC): Agility and Resilience combined
Source: Getronics, August '23.
What if two of the most transformative technological developments to have emerged in recent years, cloud computing and no-code solutions, could be combined in a single platform? This would empower businesses to adopt next-generation technologies at speed – not as a one-time project but as part of a broader cultural change.
Alongside cloud computing, the rise of no-code and low-code solutions has had a profound effect on business transformation projects. In an instant, business leaders could have direct influence over the digital solutions being used by their employees. Managers no longer had to simply hope that software developers were creating tools to suit their business ambitions. They could be involved first-hand, regardless of their programming experience.
There are many challenges on the horizon for businesses. In terms of skills shortages, for instance, 68% of companies want to upskill IT employees to keep up with the demands of an ever-changing technology landscape. Almost a third of HR professionals have found that DevOps skills are difficult to recruit. And yet, the demand for new applications is not going anywhere. No-code cloud delivers a way to meet this demand while overcoming the skills gap.
No code and the cloud: The best of both worlds
No-Code Cloud is about transforming and automating business processes, enabling faster migration to the cloud through legacy integration or app modernisation. Secure and robust cloud platforms can enable organisations to take advantage of the many benefits of no-code solutions.
Instead of requiring coding skills or knowledge of a particular programming language, no-code cloud lets businesses choose from a variety of ready-made options using a drag-and-drop interface. No-code development is visually driven, enabling organisations to create bespoke applications faster, more easily and with fewer resources. Unsurprising, these benefits are being explored by businesses large and small. In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2024, 65% of all app activity will result from no-code development.
Centring development within your organisation enables greater co-creation, improving collaboration across the business. It takes away the fear factor that can prevent both innovation and cloud adoption. There’s no need to worry if skill deficits will de-rail application development. Similarly, no-code cloud platforms eliminate human errors in coding. Bug-less apps can be created with a much shorter development time within a resilient cloud platform.
Drag-and-drop nodes and functions can be accessed directly on a pre-configured cloud platform. This allows businesses to carry out prototyping much easier than before. Instead of investing time into finding the best way of migrating legacy technologies, this can be achieved without any technical skills through a no-code cloud platform.
