Most of the companies that aim to build IoT applications need developers with specialized skills that allow them to configure and maintain these technologies properly.
But low-code or no-code platforms can eliminate many challenges in the IoT application development process and enable companies to drive better results.
Low-code/no-code platforms are app development tools that enable non-software engineers to build software applications.
Some no-code platforms only require business logic and integration skills to develop an application, whereas some low-code platforms have their own scripting languages and thus require a user to have basic coding knowledge as well.
“Once set up in the IoT platform, end users can easily create complex scripts and processes on the managed devices without any technical knowledge – enabling faster development and more reliability from a business point of view, as it is directly developed by the business owners,”.
Low-code development generally requires technical knowledge about IoT technologies and software development and is typically used by integrators and software developers to accelerate IoT development without needing experts.
Low-code platforms via an application programming interface (API)-based integration approach minimize the complexity.
All industries where operational technology (OT) assets are available can benefit from using low-code or no-code platforms to build IoT apps, said Bart Schouw, chief evangelist, Software AG.
