As digital enterprises in the software industry, across the world, began to face a common problem of increased costs and time-consuming processes, a new way of software development saw the need to come into existence. One which significantly reduced costs and did not require any specialized skill set in coding and programming language.

No Code Development, simply put, is the way of developing software programs/ applications without actually having to write any original code.

Sounds surprising, doesn’t it? However, with the rapid evolution of business processes born due to increasing demand for enterprises to reduce go-to-market time as much as possible, new technologies have also come into the industry that enable development and deployment of software/ applications without having to actually create new code from scratch.

So, how does no code software development actually happen? Surely there has to be some code involved in order to build a software program/ application. Right?

Yes, that’s completely true. It has to be clarified that No Code development doesn’t actually mean software development without any code. It just refers to the business users not having to write any code from their side while building software applications.

These business users are known as Citizen Developers in the industry, not actual coders or software developers but business technologists.

These business technologists use software platforms/ Tools/ Environments that enable them to create or replicate existing applications through the means of software blocks that come in no-code tools. Citizen Developers just have to drag & drop key application components that come pre-installed in the platform in order to create a new application.
