Businesses everywhere are adopting low-code development. But what’s behind the rise of low-code platforms? What are the benefits that organizations are so eager to harness? If you want to know the answers, you’ve come to the right place.
The new demands of the “new normal”
In a June 2021 survey from Salesforce, 88% of the IT leaders said that IT workloads had increased in the past 12 months. It’s a fair bet that much of this is due to demands placed on technology infrastructure, and IT departments, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the onset of the novel coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, business, as usual, came to a halt. In the United States and around the world, offices made the transition to a remote workplace suddenly, using work from home apps to fuel the transformation.
Before the pandemic, an estimated 37 percent of American jobs could, in theory, be done full-time from home, but this was not reality. The total amount of American workers who worked from home at least half the time was only 4 percent.
But now, researchers predict that 40 percent or more of full-time employees in the United States will continue working primarily from home 12-months post-pandemic.
Although this seems to be a welcomed transition, it is not comfortable. There are a lot of growing pains, especially when the change is unexpected. According to a survey by the Society of Human Resource Management, over 70 percent of employers reported difficulties when transitioning to remote work.
