Factors that need to be considered go well beyond simply making developers happy

The highest priority when selecting a low code development platform is to obviously make developers happy. After all, if developers don’t enthusiastically embrace a platform they are not going to be nearly as productive. There are, however, additional important considerations when selecting a low code platform that need to be taken into account; including how flexible the underlying architecture is, how secure the low code platform is, and how easily can the organization’s culture adapt to it.

The success of any development project inevitably comes down to processes and execution. One of the primary reasons an organization adopts a low code platform in the first place is because they make it simpler for developers and end users to collaborate. Instead of having developers create applications in isolation, end users get to share their perspective as before, during and after the code is being written. That level of collaboration results not just in an application that end users like, it also creates a process they want to own. That’s why it’s critical to not just rely solely on the opinion of the developers when selecting a low code development platform. Organizations need to think long and hard about which low code platform best fits their culture.
