With Gartner predicting that 70% of software applications will be developed using low-code or even no-code techniques by 2025, there's no time like the present to start taking your enterprise application development to the next level.

One IDE to rule them all

LANSA goes beyond traditional low-code development platforms to combine easy-to-leverage low-code approaches with conventional coding in the same integrated development environment (IDE). 

That means there's just one IDE needed to develop progressive and iterative applications at speed for the web and desktop, leveraging a single programming language.

As Gartner explains, the massive move to the cloud means businesses can take control of their mission-critical software applications like never before. 

Low-code platforms can empower in-house teams, including business analysts and technologists outside IT specialities, to deliver and adapt solutions across cloud environments -- closely matching organisational requirements.

By broadening access to programming, developer schemes can supercharge innovation by empowering and engaging employees at the coalface to innovate and design creative solutions.

“More than ever before in this era of digital transformation amid global unrest and a turbulent economy, companies require flexibility,” says LANSA's Anton Trukhanov. “Organisations need new, easy and affordable development tools in order to quickly adjust to changing market demands and new challenges.”

Three steps to successful platform development

The first step is to prioritise a low-code platform with a powerful visual editor that's not only simple to use and convenient, requiring minimal coding skills, but enables fast builds of new enterprise applications and assembly of functional work processes without writing and testing new code. 

Secondly, full application/service integration is critical. With more than 190 certified CData  Connectors, Visual LANSA builds allow easy integration with myriad on-prem and SaaS offerings for CRM, ERP, marketing automation, accounting and collaboration.

Finally, benefits can be truly maximised by adopting a 'write once, deploy anywhere' paradigm, adopting one language and cross-platform deployment. 

Not only is there no platform lock-in with LANSA, but there's no need for a full stack development team.

That's how LANSA is promoting customer capabilities to accelerate agility and high-quality software development -- working with partners including QBS.
