The Low-Code, Digital Transformation Groove

In the past, conventional software developers used hand-coding to build and deploy enterprise applications, a slow process that could take weeks or even months to complete.

But that’s not the case anymore. Nope, low-code platforms have turbocharged the app development process, with user-friendly interfaces that allow even non-tech business users to create fully-functional, enterprise apps in minutes.

In fact,  low-code allows you to build enterprise-grade business apps 10x faster than ever before.

But here’s the question. In the hyper-connected digital economy, are you prepared to compete and win? Are your back office systems responsive enough to keep pace with fast-changing customer expectations?  Agile enough to outmaneuver competitors, and capitalize on fast-moving business opportunities? 

Yes, low code is your best path to  digital transformation success. Effortless customer interactions. Accelerated app development.  And smooth, back office operations. But this is a #Funtime Friday post. So, let’s break down this low code post with a funky musical groove.

Back in the day… in the groovy Sixties…a West Coast band, called Tower of Power revolutionized pop music with a brash (as in excellent), horn-section that put a funky groove in the Rock and Roll beat. One of their biggest hits was a smash hit called “What is Hip?”

Which inspired this low-code riff. Check it out… 

Mic check…one two…one two…

Mic check…one two…one two…

You claim best-in-class in all the right places


Market leader in self-serve applications

You should be satisfied, but something ain’t quite right.

 

What is low code?


Tell me, tell me
, you think you know.


What is low-code?


If you really know
, your digital transformation will show.

 

So ya wanna ditch the old-code pack

Ease on into low-code apps

But you ain’t exactly sure what is low.

So based on a pundit’s tip


You gave your platform a quick facelift

But somehow, ya know

There’s much more to the low-code trip.

 

What is low-code?


Tell me, tell me, if you think you know.


What is low-code?


If you’re really low, your digital transformation will show.

 

You want to be part of a new breed


Serve digital customers at top speed


Hang out with the fast, low-code set.

 

You deploy apps in all the right places

Roll them out at faster paces


You should be satisfied

But something ain’t quite right.

 

What is low-code?


Tell me, tell me


You think you know.


What is low-code?


If you really know, your digital transformation will show.

 

So, you went and found a low-code guru


In an effort to transform a new you,

And maybe even raise your low-code level.

 

While you’re striving to find the right road,


There’s one thing you should know,


What’s low-code today, might become passé.

 

What is low-code?


Tell me, tell me


You think you know.


What is low-code?


If you really know
, your digital transformation will show.
