5 Ways Codeless Makes Developers Faster & More Productive

Legacy code and the legacy systems they support slow productivity for software developers. Here are the 5 ways building applications with a Codeless as a Service (CaaS) platform helps them be faster and more productive.

It simply takes too long to bring mission-critical applications to market, and developers waste time maintaining legacy code. Let’s break this down into numbers:

  • ~50% of the time developers spend on maintaining code is spent just trying to understand the code

  • It takes developers 20% longer on average to complete an enterprise application project than it did in the 2000s

  • 33% of enterprise software projects go over schedule

At Unqork, we’re looking to solve this problem with our CaaS platform. Codeless is exactly that: There is no code that developers need to write or interact with, halting the generation of time-consuming legacy code in its tracks.

Here are five ways codeless helps developers build faster.

1.  Build with a drag-and-drop visual interface 

CaaS abstracts away the writing and maintenance of millions of lines of code with an intuitive visual interface. Simply drag-and-drop these graphic representations of configurable application elements (complex workflows, back-end logic, integrations, etc.) into your building environment. By dramatically simplifying software development, developers can bring applications to market 3x faster compared to building with code or low-code tools.

2. Spend less time debugging

The vast majority of bugs and security vulnerabilities stem from human error in written code (for example, 99% of Github’s security incidents were due to developers’ mistakes). When code is taken out of the equation, the potential for these vulnerabilities is removed. This is a true timesaver when you consider that developers can spend up to 50% of their time debugging. 

By dramatically simplifying software development, developers can bring applications to market 3x faster compared to building with code or low-code tools.

3. Stop wasting time on repeatable tasks

With a codeless platform, developers can easily automate repeatable coding tasks that they would otherwise spend time coding for. Plus, when you fix or otherwise change something in one place, that change scales out easily.

4. Leverage reusable components

Why reinvent the wheel? If you or a fellow developer built functionality once in the past, having to build it again adds unnecessary time to your application build. Since Unqork is centralized in one location, any user can reuse and share their pre-built functionality. They can also head over to the Unqork Marketplace, a one-stop shop for enterprise functionalities and products that snap into place with just a few clicks.


Have a minute? Watch to see why the world’s top enterprises are leveraging codeless to build applications 3x faster with its drag-and-drop functionality.  

5. Add third-party integrations seamlessly

The more complex an application is, the more integrations you’re going to need. Gartner predicted in 2018 that, through 2020, the integration work attached to digital transformation would demand 50% of an enterprise technology team’s resources—and that was before a pandemic increased demand for digital services. With CaaS, developers can jumpstart projects with pre-built templates and connectors of third-party services (remember, those drag-and-drop components included integrations).
