How to decide the way you can embrace digital transformation


Take a look at this chart made by Jason Bloomberg if you plan to up your digital transformation game. It’s a very comprehensive chart about the pluses and minuses of different approaches that are relevant today. Note that if you want to use a moderate to low amount of coding (low-code), the results are the most balanced. Whatever you choose, say no to shadow IT within your business because it can be the weakness that you overlook and could bring you to your knees sooner rather than later. Be aware of the tools your employees use at all times and your business will thrive whatever approach you decide to embrace in your digital transformation endeavor.

While no-code platforms empower business professionals to take the development process into their own hands, low-code platforms enable business professionals and IT professionals to work together to create apps that are more company specific. What this essentially means is that low-code platforms still require coding skills to deal with more complex back-end issues which, in no code platforms, become standardized based on industry best practices.

Low code platforms greatly simplify the app building process for developers, allowing them much of the same tools as no code platforms – declarative and visual tools, process databases, data models etc. – while at the same time giving them the chance to modify them and build their own databases of frequently used processes, UIs and integrations.

The future looks bright for platforms such as BlueFabric ( currently known as Aurachain), because, as Jason Bloomberg concludes his article, the chart highlights an important prediction: as Low-Code platforms mature, they will offer higher scores across the board, something none of the other approaches promise – while requiring less hand-coding than either traditional or Agile techniques.
