In today’s digital age, company-based software and apps are becoming an indispensable part of the business. And while the impact of having singular applications for business is growing, its cost is getting significantly reduced. Today, you don’t need employees with extensive programming language knowledge or months of training to create the software from scratch. That is the power of low-code.

A massively popular app-creation tool, low-code platforms are replacing traditional coding methods at a fast pace. Gartner predicts that more than 65% of app development will be done through low-code in 2024. Crust’s open-source low-code platform offers a smooth graphical interface. Users can create customized, task-oriented software easily with the help of low-code and faster than was ever possible with traditional coding.

6 Features that make low-code app development fun

From pre-built templates to visual modelling, low-code has versatile features to offer in cloud-based app development. With Crust low-code, you can not only create unlimited applications but merge them together as well. Some of the fascinating features of low-code are:

#1 You work with visual models

Application development becomes fascinating when it’s visually-engaging. Low-code eliminates the clutter of long, monotonous lines of codes with visual representations of coding processes. Visual models are much simpler, and any employee with basic training can understand them. Crust’s low-code solution allows citizen developers to add buttons, tools, and pages to apps with a simple drag and drop technique.

#2 It’s fast and hassle-free

Traditional app-building takes time and effort. But by eliminating the need for ideation, hours of hard-coding, testing and code-rewrites, low-code platforms manage to make the process of software-creation fast and hassle-free. 72% of low-code developers build apps within three months, while traditional development takes about six months or even a year.

#3 It comes with easy mobility and integration

Low-code has efficient mobility features. You can build software once and deploy it across multiple devices with modifications without writing a new code. Crust’s low-code platform enabled with an API ensures mobility not just across platforms but across apps.

It is based on a micro-service architecture deployed on a cloud service that lets you host with third-party apps as well. You can integrate your app with other public apps or apps within your organization without spending on additional software solutions.

#4 You can focus more on creation, less on testing

Low-code app development works with well-tested elements, such as page blocks. This means that you don’t have to test your software for bugs and glitches repeatedly. Using pre-built elements, or even complete apps, is much easier and has fewer chances of falling.

#5 Security is built-in

Part of the reason that makes low-code app development is that it’s safe and protected under layers of security measures. Crust’s low-code platform comes with advanced security settings, allowing you to define with great detail who can do what.

#6 Automation is made easy

You don’t have to sit and create complex business process models to deploy automated workflows. Crust’s low code solution comes with an open automation engine Corredor that lets you automate all the back-office and business processes.
