Stop settling for off-the-shelf software. With no-code empowers enterprises can rapidly build custom software using a fraction of the resources.

Businesses from across all industries are under increasing pressure to “go digital” in order to optimize internal workflows, amplify productivity, and address rising user expectations for digital experiences. According to Gartner, enterprises are on track to spend approximately $557 billion this year developing enterprise software, or a little bit more than the total annual GDP of Thailand

When implementing enterprise software, organizations must choose between two separate strategies: building a custom solution or buying a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solution. 

Custom builds allow organizations to address all their business requirements and differentiate their offerings in the marketplace. However, building custom software is typically complex, resource-intensive, and time-consuming. 

On the other hand, adopting a COTS solution is simpler and more affordable, but they provide limited customizability. The COTS route often means missing business requirements or having to settle for clunky workarounds. Enterprises have often been forced into COTS, even though custom is in their best interest.

Enter a no-code application platform like Unqork, which streamlines the development of custom enterprise software. No-code offers a combination of low cost, ease of use, and extreme flexibility that empowers enterprises to build robust custom software without necessitating the resources of a traditional code-based approach.

In this eBook, we will explore the ways in which no-code platforms ease the traditional friction points of custom enterprise development and upends traditional Build vs. Buy calculations.
