What is low-code

Low-code is a modern approach to agile software development. A low-code development platform helps developers create products visually by abstracting and automating commonly used components. This leads to reduced complexity and quick go-to-market during delivery of applications. Developers can easily drag-and-drop commonly used features instead of having to code extensively.
Saving almost half the investment that is usually spent in training, development, and set-up, low-code platforms like WaveMaker ensure faster development cycles, easy coding, and innovative digital transformation stories.

Low-Code Development Technologies Market to
Grow 23% in 2021 Worldwide - Gartner report

Forrester names WaveMaker as a top low-code platform for professional developer

Why go the
low-code way?

Low-code development platforms involve an intuitive visual approach to application development, allowing developers to drag and drop components onto a canvas and then integrate these components using popup dialogs and plain language.

For professional

Code with ease on low-code, transform to full-stack, create bandwidth for innovation.

Save in cost
and effort

Reduce training costs, re-use and re-purpose app artifacts and components using low-code.


Use low-code to Increase the speed of app delivery exponentially, stay agile, and innovate.

Reduction in
IT debt

Streamline development, reduce waste, and use low-code to fast-forward application delivery.

Complex enterprise

Leverage low-code to customize readable code with ease and seamlessly incorporate complex business logic.


Bring business developers and IT closer together. Low-code helps fusion teams to develop applications that meet business and customer needs now.

What are the benefits of using low-code?


Faster application development than
traditional software delivery


Lesser coding required compared to
traditional software development


Lower maintenance costs than the
traditional software life cycle

How does
low-code work?

Visual DevelopmentLow-code platforms offer a WYSIWYG development environment where developers can drag and drop components to design responsive user interfaces that adapt to a device’s screen resolution. Some platforms like WaveMaker also offer out-of-the-box templates for commonly used layouts and screens such as dashboards.https://youtu.be/K-xDC92qTMUSimplified Integrations

Low-code platforms are expected to provide a visual approach for developers to connect to data sources and embed data elements directly into the application. Platforms like WaveMaker also allow professional developers to design data models and configure business logic directly.

Low-code application platforms are expected to streamline and speed up the application delivery process with zero DevOps. Such platforms, like WaveMaker, also offer a single point of control for app maintenance and updates, they extend the capabilities to security, governance, infrastructure auto-scaling, and more.


RAD, aPaaS, BPM, No code - How
are they different

Rapid Application Development (RAD)

Rapid application development is a software development methodology that uses tools and techniques to speed up the development process. It relies on prototyping and rapid iterative development to release apps faster and elicit early feedback from business users.

Faster apps releases

Early feedback mechanism

Iterative development

Application Platform as a Service (aPaaS)

According to Gartner, aPaaS is a cloud service that offers development and deployment environments for application services. An aPaaS platfom provides the ability to build apps iteratively, scale on-demand, provision instantly, and integrate with other services.

Instant provisioning

On-demand scaling

Easy integrations

Business Process Management (BPM)

BPM software suites serve as solutions to many business problems by enabling automation, monitoring, modeling, and streamlining business processes. Modern BPM platforms bring value for simple business apps without complex customizations.

Efficiency optimization

Simple applications

Extensive training-driven

No Code

No code application development employs the visual drag-n-drop development methodology where developers can build template-driven applications without any kind of hand coding. No code platforms are used to build short-term applications with simple UIs.
