As more and more enterprises start to realize the potential of visual application development, the terms “low-code” and “no-code” have become a part of the tech vocabulary. However, these two terms are not interchangeable, and professionals should use caution when evaluating platforms.
The nature of software development is continuing to evolve – as it has since its birth. Low-code platforms are disrupting software development by tackling more and more complex application scenarios. As a result, there are still fewer use cases where organizations must actually hand-code the solution.
At the heart of low-code is “model-driven development” – visual modelling of applications rather than traditional hand-coding. However, there are two fundamentally different architectural approaches towards how the visual model should be made into a running application.
