Creating intelligent solutions, in record time and future-proof, has become a necessity for all industries. The best way to do it? With Low-Code!
To evolve a Company to better cope with User needs, Business and Market requirements: that's Digital Transformation.
But first... What is Low-Code?
Unlike traditional software development, a good Low-Code platform reduces work times, increases productivity and reduces the number of developers per project.

Low-Code platforms do not focus on the code, but on the knowledge base and visual development (graphical user interface), allowing to create, develop and maintain applications in the most varied devices and digital media, in the most efficient way: automatically.
What are the characteristics of Low-Code platforms?
  • They are Model Driven, since they are based on the specification of a model that represents the abstraction of the problem to be solved.
  • They use Code Generators to create multi-platform applications.
  • The learning curve is minimal. Developers do not need to have deep knowledge in programming languages.
Low-Code vs No-Code: What's the difference?
Low-Code is a category that describes a type of Software Development Platform and Strategy. It was first coined by Forrester, but now is widely used by everybody. A Low-Code Application Platform (LCAP) is usually used to create custom applications with different strategies for simplifying and reducing programming.

No-Code Platforms are usually on the most simplified side of the development spectrum. With lots of drag and drop, and targeted to citizen-developers that need to solve standard industry-specific applications without development skills.
Why choose Low-Code?
Less Coding. Manual coding is very low.

Cost Reduction. This occurs because developers' working hours are reduced.

Agile Development. With fast and valuable results for the client.

Better User Experience. By shortening development times, there is greater feedback with the customer, which leads to meeting the business objective.
