The “digitization of everything” is where both the private and public sectors are heading. But how quickly will it happen for the public sector? Look at budget constraints, the lack of trained IT professionals, legacy and/or “patchwork” networks and strict parameters around what is acceptable for use. All of these factors are slowing the public sector’s transformation, even while federal mandates are pushing agencies to move to a fully digitized network as quickly as the private enterprise world. It’s a conundrum.
Low-code development has become a beacon of hope for federal agencies because it enables rapid delivery of business applications with a minimum of hand-coding by using declarative tooling that supports visual drag-and-drop composition rather than specialized coding. This, along with minimal upfront investment in setup, training and deployment, and federal agencies realize that low-code supports all the facets of increased agility.
However, not all low-code platforms are created equal. To drive change in federal IT, while meeting mandates, a low-code platform must:
- Fully leverage the cloud, while supporting on premise and hybrid deployments.
- Meet security accreditations, including FedRAMP 2.0, Service Organization Controls 1, 2 and 3, and the Federal Information Security Management Act.
- Operate identically on the web and mobile devices through a single development effort.
- Provide proven enterprise-grade scalability.
It is imperative for agencies to learn more about low-code and the differences in low-code platforms.
During Fast-Track Your Digital Transformation: Achieve ROI in Record Speed with an Enterprise Low-Code Platform, you will hear from experts at Forrester Research and Appian who will explain:
- Why rapid digital transformation demands low-code
