Is your manager considering low-code?

Luca contacted me a few days ago with the leadership board. They have a great product, but it was too expensive for us, so we had to turn them down. I still managed to get something extremely valuable from Luca – I cried myself for it, promising I’d give him a high quality backlink in return, so here we are 😀

I explain by explaining what they do. The Leadership Board is connecting service companies with companies in need of services. it’s basically a “dating service” For service companies like ours, where you act wisely “match” As with other companies, you’re interested in meeting you based on what you do, and a dozen questions. It is merging service providers with people in need of services. To connect potentially synergistic companies, he had a question; “Are you interested in investing in low-code in 2023?” This was an extremely interesting question for us for obvious reasons, so I asked Luca if he could send me the figures and allow me to publish it.

How many companies are looking into low-code?

The companies that answered the question above ranged from companies with 200 employees to Fortune 500 companies. There were about 120 companies that answered, so the number is probably statistically significant. I’m unfortunately not allowed to reveal anything other than the final number, because the way these companies responded is like the value proposition of the leadership board and the intellectual property they own. The Leadership Board is using this data as a means of earning money. But at least a dozen companies have answered the question. “household name”, applying companies that you have certainly heard about already. conclusion?

44% of these companies want to invest in low-code by 2023

This means that almost half of the world is looking to invest in low-code software development in the coming year. Although this figure is new, similar figures have been published before by Gartner, concluding that more than 65 percent of all software distributed by the end of 2024 will use low-code or no-code constructs. will be distributed. So yes, your employer Is Might want to invest in low-code software development. The reason for course is something that I explained in this article. That’s too good for the value proposition to ignore!

What should you do?

If you’re working for an enterprise that has software development as a secondary task, you really don’t have a choice. Low-code will go down your throat, whether you like it or not. However, like all emerging technologies, it gives you an edge if you are an early adopter. So my advice is to start investigating low-code, and look into it, before this Your manager starts to force it on you.

The fact is, if you’re working a medium to large enterprise, there’s a statistically about 50% chance that your C level management is already looking at how to invest in low-code over the next 12 months. to be done. The leaders in this field will clearly have an edge when they publicly announce their initiatives, and probably because of the promotions, and all the other juicy things related to Darwinism happening in the private enterprise sector. So my piece of advice to you is as follows.

Give up the attitude, embrace the revolution. Low-code is here to stay!

In one of my previous articles I asked Will low-code steal your job? I would like to change my answer and answer as follows; “Only If You Allow It” – and the only way you allow it is to not take it seriously, and to avoid it, to believe it is a “Inferior Technology”, I’ve worked with low-code for over a decade, long before it had a name, and I can guarantee you it is. No A lousy technique!

How to get started with low-code?

Low-code requires just as much learning as we as software developers are doing. Our own low-code framework requires that you learn a new programming language. We’ve made it easy for you to learn Hyperlambda by releasing a free Hyperlambda course that lets you learn the language faster – but it still takes an effort. Of course, with Hyperlambda being probably the least popular programming language on the planet, this effort probably doesn’t seem worthwhile to you – because when you learn a new programming language, you’re probably going to be looking for a language that will secure your future. Do. As you do this, you’ll see statistics on which programming language is more popular to increase your chances of getting hired in the future. Software developers have traditionally secured their future in the last 100 years since computing was invented.

Frog Leap of Innovation

However, the point is that there is a Change happening in the world. Innovation researchers refer to this change as “Frog Leap”, Such frog leaps often render all previous survival mechanisms obsolete, and existing strategies to secure your future are by definition the term. “counter producer”, To clarify this point, let me ask you a question.

Do you think your manager cares about how “popular” Hyperlambda is, if it saves him 50% of his resources on new projects?

I suspect you already know the answer to that question. So now on to my answer to the above question. How do you start with low-code? Answer is like this…

No matter how many financial incentives I have for saying the above out loud, it’s still in your best interest to do what I say…
