The software development life cycle (SDLC) represents a complex, lengthy, and expensive series of challenges for the enterprise. It would be one thing if all the requisite investments and frustrations guaranteed a robust ROI.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
A 2020 report from the Project Management Institute, for example, found that among organizations with “highly mature” project management practices, 23% of IT projects failed to meet project goals, 33% of projects failed to remain in budget, 37% failed to be delivered on time, and 11% were considered complete failures. These numbers are even more dismal across the board for “low-maturity” organizations, which boast a frightening 21% rate of complete project failure.
Building and maintaining custom enterprise software is hard—and, it’s getting harder: Following decades of steady improvements thanks to innovative development tools and methodologies, the past decade has seen a sharp uptick in average development times. Why? Traditional code-based development methods are simply not up to the task of keeping up with the complexity and expansiveness of today’s modern enterprise software.
That’s why a whole new approach is needed.
No-code represents a new development paradigm that accelerates every step in the process, while subsequently improving quality and reducing costs. Enterprise no-code isn’t a new tool, it’s a complete development platform that comes with all the tools needed to build and maintain enterprise software—and, as the name implies, it completely removes the need to write any code, so organizations can focus all their development efforts on business logic and creating a great user experience.
In this eBook, we will explore how no-code transforms the entire software development lifecycle, from initial planning to ongoing maintenance.
