Conclusion:

Low-code is not a novel technology. Rather, it is an evolutionary technology that started as rapid application design (RAD) in the late ’80s, transitioned into business process modelling (BPM) in the 2000s, which then evolved into e-forms in 2010, before finally becoming low-code in 2020.

This evolution has been a meandering path and has spawned a broad ecosystem of solutions, each with unique traits and features that fit specific organisational structures. IBRS has listed key traits of modern low-code platforms to match your organisation’s ecosystem and help streamline the process of shortlisting a platform.

The most important trait of the new low-code platform will be how well it supports the transition from the existing ICT-centric governance model to a new model that must be defined by potential benefits and risks.
