Enterprises need to respond quickly to changes in customer requirements and operating environments. Traditional development approaches involve skilled developers and IT practitioners writing complex code, with all rules and actions manually formulated. With such an approach, there is an apparent business-IT disconnect. Low-code automation bridges this gap by enabling business and IT functions to describe business requirements by visualization (i.e., process is the visual language).
A low-code process automation platform offers visual development tools that enable both skilled and citizen developers to analyze, model, optimize, and automate business processes. In particular, its drag-and-drop interface enables citizen developers to incorporate changes in processes and deploy them rapidly without needing to write complex code. When consumed as a cloud-native platform as a service (PaaS), users can experience several benefits, including better scalability and auto-scaling, high availability (HA), improved security and compliance, and continuous delivery and instant deployment.
