We live in a world in which applications are the doorway that connects customers, suppliers, and other key players to your business. This makes the ability to build high-quality applications quickly and easily a must. OutSystems has created a no-code application-building platform that makes it possible to rapidly build essential applications to power your business.
High-performance low-code allows you to create sophisticated, strategic, and vital internal and consumer applications. As you transition from a department app to an enterprise-wide programme, it has no restrictions when it comes to offering end-to-end application development and upgrades. There are no additional licensing requirements, no scalability problems, and no data “do-overs” for updates. We describe high-performance low-code in this blog post, along with four features that set it apart from existing low-code platforms.
Today's applications are difficult to create by hand and can take months or even years. Low-code reduces that time to weeks, which enables IT teams to build applications with little to no manual coding.
So how widespread is low-code? Let's examine the marketplace. AI Multiple discovered 223 suppliers who provide low-code in January 2023. What a bewildering variety of vendors there are. By reducing the number of low-code providers to 17 in its 2023 Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM and Critical Capabilities study, Gartner has done the market a favour. However, picking a low-code vendor might still be challenging because many of them resemble one another. It all depends on the skills you need to acquire.
You don't need to slog through the lengthy list if you want to employ low-code to create an application that is essential to the success of your company, frontend, backend, automation, and all. High-performance low-code consumer apps, sophisticated process automation, ERP, CRM, and other tools can handle it all. Irrespective of their size or scope, low-code offers everything you need to construct apps quickly, precisely, and consistently. High-performance low-code dramatically speeds up development, encourages top-tier CI/CD, and enables teams to quickly produce complex, one-of-a-kind programmes.
Its four key traits that set it apart from the competition are:
Full-stack development's power is offered by high-performance low-code without its drawbacks. Without being constrained by technology, giving up control of the code, or wasting time, your team may create apps. Specialized AI-powered tools assure architectural soundness, spot vulnerabilities, and eliminate bottlenecks.
High-performance low-code gives new developers the tools they need to build automation, frontends, backends, and user interfaces while enabling them to become cloud-native powerhouses without having to pick up new skills.
Professionals can focus on the development that requires their special touch and years of experience, and they can even use custom code to expand what they create. They write connections themselves or use open-source ones to create programmes that seamlessly link with current systems.
High-performance low-code also offers the ability to speed up the entire software development lifecycle through the intelligent use of automation and AI. It provides your team with an AI-based coding expert that guides them through difficult builds in real-time and relieves them of tedious work.
Your code must adhere to strict architectural standards, which are ensured by an AI-based business architect who is always on call. Automated visual debugging and merging can triage differences brought about by developers working on the same module, pause execution at breakpoints, and run logic step-by-step to detect mistakes.
Very agile is high-performance low-code. It gives you the tools you need to create internal apps, portals, and core systems—as well as pixel-perfect, strong, responsive, and AI-driven consumer applications and experiences—and update them as soon as necessary.
Accessible through a development environment or a central repository, reusable modules, connectors, and UI components hasten the delivery of applications. When the market and business require a significant change quickly, it is simple to drop them into apps, saving hours of busy work.
In that it doesn't restrict you to particular tools, settings, operating systems, or interpretation models, high-performance low-code is also agile. For instance, high-performance low-code gives you the option to interact with existing DevOps tools rather than requiring you to utilize a proprietary solution if you currently use such tools. For development, you have a choice of on-premises, cloud-native, public, and private clouds.
Instead of using emulators, your developers can use an IDE designed for Mac development if that is their preferred platform.
They can use a cloud-native runtime that includes Kubernetes, Linux containers, and contemporary cloud services for data, networking, authentication, provisioning, and more if they want to become top-tier cloud-native developers without having to put in any of the effort required to set up cloud architecture or learn serverless development.
To ensure that you never have to worry about cloud crashes or data loss, high-performance low-code takes protecting what you construct to the highest degree.
Although many low-code platforms incorporate security into the process of creating apps, high-performance low-code provides source code that can be checked for flaws and bugs. That kind of protection is not provided by low-code systems that create programmes by reading models.
The platform's high-performance low-code security features 500 validations from design to runtime to guarantee that anything you create with it is secure from the start. Your apps receive automatic updates with fixes for DDOS, newly discovered code vulnerabilities, mobile threats, and other safeguards.
You can use corporate SAST solutions, which are specific to high-performance low-code, to boost assurance. In addition to offering compliance designations like SOC2, HIPAA, and others, it delivers a comprehensive governance mechanism that is appropriate for enterprise software factories.
When necessary, high-performance low-code allows you to swiftly scale up applications from departmental levels with a small number of users to ones that can support millions of simultaneous users without sacrificing speed or performance. With its cutting-edge visual, model-driven development tools and top-tier CI/CD techniques, your team becomes a factory for cloud-native innovation.
You don't even need to grow the number of applications you need to create in order to scale your app—complex, proprietary scripting is not required. With just one click, your teams can publish, and dependency analysis keeps even the biggest modifications from crashing the app or your portfolio. Code is regularly reviewed by an AI-driven performance tool, ensuring that apps consistently operate and scale at their best.
In order to uncover ways to decrease technological debt and guarantee best practices are followed, high-performance low-code also automates the scanning of a full portfolio of hundreds of apps. Built-in analytics and testing tools track user experience and spot bottlenecks. Receiving customer input directly within the apps your developers create is also advantageous to you.

Power Automate, specifically, is a workflow and process automation tool. It seeks to automate workflows with an API-based approach, exchange data with legacy on-premises software, and integrate AI models into your workflows with a low-code approach.
Microsoft has now acquired Softomotive, a 15-year-old robotics process automation company, to enhance Microsoft Power Automate product. According to the description on its website, Softomotive offers two products for attended use and unattended use.
Microsoft Power Automate is a low-code/no-code business process automation tool that is a component of the Microsoft Power Platform family. Microsoft wants to integrate Softomotive’s products into this tool. For users of Microsoft’s own “UI Flows” robotic process automation technology, WinAutomation is already incorporated and now offered without charge.
Given that Softomotive products ‘WinAutomation’ and ‘ProcessRobot’ will no longer receive support, updates, or upgrades, according to the Power Automate team, this is the perfect time to migrate to Microsoft’s suite of automation tools built into Office365. Support for WinAutomation solutions will cease on the 31st of December, 2022. Any current Softomotive customer after that date will still be able to use their software, regardless of the licensing level, but without support, upgrades, or updates. All clients who do not have a special arrangement with Softomotive are subject to this. Customers should contact their Microsoft sales representative if they have negotiated a personal contract and terms of service with Softomotive.

Traditionally, a company that required apps depended solely on the highly specialized skills and knowledge of coders to develop the apps they need. This resulted in long wait times for apps and significant operational inefficiencies that left organizations struggling to fulfill their needs.
Add to this the increased need for digital apps and shortage of developers in recent years and it becomes clear that IT teams need a way to build powerful apps quickly with the resources at hand. Fortunately, this is where no-code and low-code app development come in.
At first glance, no-code and low-code seem like the same thing, and they are often confused with one another. However, there are subtle differences between the two that you should know. With this in mind, let’s start by defining these types of app development.
No-code app development is a method of building apps that requires absolutely no coding knowledge or experience. This is a way for non-professional developers, such as employees outside of the IT department, to build the apps they need quickly and easily. These apps can be built using a visual interface and drag-and-drop building platform that contains all the elements required to build an app within minutes. Think of it as similar to a website-building platform.
In contrast, low-code app development is a more flexible method of building apps that still has the drag-and-drop visual interface for people who don’t know programming languages. However, there may be minimal hand-coding required, particularly when you want to customize these applications.
The greatest advantage of no-code app development is that it doesn’t require any coding to build an app. Anyone can quickly develop an app and launch it with the click of a button. This is the ideal solution when you need an app that will solve a specific problem within a department or a company, making it easy to address an immediate need without having to tap into your IT resources.
There are two major disadvantages of no-code app development to be aware of. The first of these is that the apps that can be built will be fairly basic. However, when they are needed to solve a specific problem, this is generally not a problem. The other disadvantage to no-code app development is that it can be easy for people within an organization to develop apps without proper consideration or supervision, resulting in possible security concerns, problems with integration, and compliance issues.
Low-code app development comes with several advantages. Apps can be developed quickly, which means there is no more waiting for app development when working on a larger project. In addition, app development costs less, increasing your ROI, while lowering your risk. And with a single click, an app can be deployed and changes to the app can be made as people interact with it.
However, like no-code app development, there are disadvantages to using low-code app development. Prime among these is the fact that with just a low level of coding knowledge, you will find there is a steep learning curve. Low-code apps are not easily suited to building enterprise-grade apps that offer the high performance, quality and scalability.
With the above differences between no-code and low-code app development, you might find it challenging to decide which one you need. No-code app development is ideal for simple front-end apps, such as those that can pull, analyze, report on and export data. No-code app development is also good for apps that perform repetitive tasks and for simple internal apps.
On the other hand, low-code app development is best suited to building standalone web and mobile apps that are more likely to be integrated with other systems and multiple data sources. This method of app development can be used for nearly any type of app, with the exception of highly sophisticated, mission-critical apps that need to be scaled and must interact with multiple systems and data sources.

Not so long ago, the only way to develop and build an application was to write many lines of code for each app. This meant it took software developers a long time to develop apps, forcing them to focus on apps that had the biggest business impact. Fast-forward to today and we are witnessing the modernization of app development, thanks to the low-code approach.
Low-code app development is becoming increasingly popular, and according to Gartner, it will account for 65% of all app development by 2024. And it’s no wonder. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the speed at which businesses and other organizations have had to adopt the use of mobile apps and remote technology.
Low-code app development has completely modernized the app development process. It is a method of developing apps that requires very little code to be written from scratch. Instead, app developers using the low-code approach to app development have access to a graphic user interface that makes app development intuitive.
Enterprise-grade apps can be developed primarily through the use of a visual drag-and-drop process that requires very little hand-coding. Low-code app development also makes it possible to automate many aspects of app development, increasing the efficiency of the development process.
There are several advantages to low-code app development that organizations can benefit from. At the core of these advantages is the fact that apps can be developed more quickly and easily than ever. Here is a closer look at how low-code app development benefits organizations:
Organizations of all kinds have an increasing need for apps—both customer-facing and employee-facing. By adopting a low-code app development strategy, you will simplify and revolutionize the way your organization develops the apps you need, getting the right apps in front of the right users faster than ever before.
