At least one business application built on a no-code or low-code development platform has been deployed by 30 per cent of respondents in the last six months
To build enterprise BPM (Business Process Management) applications amid COVID, more than 60 per cent of mid-sized and large enterprises are currently using or evaluating the use of no-code or low-code platforms.
At least one business application built on a no-code or low-code development platform has been deployed by 30 per cent of respondents in the last six months, as per a survey conducted by Zvolv, an intelligent process automation platform.
Additionally, in the previous year, 75 per cent of businesses surveyed have used or evaluated at least one RPA (Robotic Process Automation) bot. This shift has resulted from the introduction of a new breed of tools that have enabled the development of applications that are extremely fast and require minimal reliance on IT, said a statement.
The study, to check how much percentage of enterprises deployed applications have been built on a no-code or low-code platforms, was conducted on over 400 business leaders from mid-sized to large-sized businesses in the APAC region.
“COVID has accelerated the trend towards adoption of solutions that reduce human dependence where possible. Business process automation streamlines remote working in a variety of ways, and it has become a priority for every business. The market for rapid development tools, whether no-code or low-code is primed for explosive growth”, said Hardik Gandhi, Founder & CEO of Zvolv.
Due to the use of different tools for different processes, which prevents data from being unified, many enterprises continue to be challenged, he added.
The CEO said, “The full capabilities of existing ERP/CRM tools are not realised due to cost and complexity, and often times the in-flexibility of installed solutions. IT teams are often back-logged with driven traditional application development approaches that require specialized resources”.
The study report highlighted that around 65 per cent of the businesses, along with developer resources, have in-house IT teams, while 25 per cent businesses outsource development to vendor partners and the remaining 10 per cent rely on self-help development platforms.
