Federal agencies are deep into the digital transformation process and clear communication between their IT teams and business teams is paramount. For this reason, there has been a higher adoption of low-code development platforms, meaning interdepartmental collaboration is much more feasible and new applications can be delivered significantly faster than before.
Aptly named, low-code platforms require far less coding expertise than other IT-heavy platforms that can quickly deplete the resources and budget of an agency’s IT team. This means that low-code platforms offer opportunities for both cost and time savings for government entities willing to adopt them and utilize “citizen coders”. Additionally, potential security concerns with hiring citizen coders are assuaged through a modular building platform that protects sensitive or confidential content. All of these advantages allow federal agencies to keep up with the necessary “digital pace” that is expected of them to properly serve citizens and other stakeholders.
Low-code platforms are not a one-size-fits-all solution though. There are several levels and nuances among them that should be understood before an agency chooses to integrate one. It’s also crucial to be familiar with the specific digital needs of your organization to properly outfit your system with the appropriate low-code platform(s).
