Low-code versus No-code application tools are hard to define because of large feature overlaps.. G2 Grid shows 289 commercial tools in the Low-code market and 212 No-code applications. Simply put – there is a lot of overlap in a $ 26 billion market worldwide. Here is an overview of the top 19 low-code tools:
There is some consensus on what both low-code and no-code tools combined can deliver:
1 – Low-code/No-code tools deliver rapid application development;
2 – Both tools lower costs by delivering working systems sooner and requiring less senior staff;
3 – Both tools encourage collaboration among team members as work is completed co-operatively;
4 – Both tools allow rapid customization of templates and UI components with point & click ease;
5 – Both tools use performance-optimizing routines and cloud computing to substantially improve response time;
6 – Both tools offer ready integration with other systems and their APi link-ups;
7 – Both tools deliver sophisticated data connections both internally and externally;
8 – Low-code tools allow for more precise component customization but at the price of varying CSS, HTM, PHP, JS, and other code. Often the programming code varies among different low-code tools;
9 – Low-code tools support for backend processes like SEO, security, backups, and migrations also vary among themselves and duplicate what is already possible with no-code tools.
In sum, over the next 2-5 years of rampant change and growth in both AI and low-code/no-code tools expect the unexpected.
