Pacing ahead to conquer the next-gen technology & drive business growth
The financial industry is at the cusp of digital transformation; with the emerging Fintechs, ever increasing regulations and new disruptive business models, incumbents are facing the pressure of responding to change at the pace of innovation. Since a long time, traditional banks and other financial services firms have been grappling with challenges of complex legacy architecture and migration roadblocks, as a result of which, business users are painfully dependent on their IT counterparts and never truly in control of their IT. Add to it the shortage of skilled talent pool and the overly pressed -for- time IT departments: you get backlogs and half-baked business deliverables. Thus the complexity creates some opacity that stifles innovation and affects time to market. Enter Low code – a concept that helps democratize IT.
Imagine a world where every business user could code, a world where you build your applications with the click of a mouse, instead of typing lines of code, over and over again.
Sounds like a blessing, right? Well, low code platforms help you employ visual, declarative techniques instead of traditional lines of programming. Think of how agile you’ll be if business users and citizen developers can make quick customizations rather than waiting for your IT department to get around to it.
Low code provides transparency, thus empowering business users with the ability and means to minimize technology impedance and foster innovation. With low code, business and IT can collaborate to be productive and efficient. It gives financial institutions the speed and power they have always craved for to stay relevant with growing pressures from Fintech, RegTech and customer expectations for enhanced service delivery. Financial institutions can do a lot of things be it delivering superior customer experiences, maximizing employee productivity, optimizing business decisions, enhance compliance requisites and thus move to what digital transformation truly looks like in practice.
The COVID-19 outbreak has pushed IT leaders to the brink, straining resources and time constraints. Given the immediate need for new software applications to support drastic changes in their strategy and business models, companies are looking at low code platforms to adapt quickly to the new normal. Low code eliminates the need to allocate large IT teams to develop new software applications, and streamline operations with citizen developers so that organizations can dedicate their IT resourced elsewhere to help curtail the negative impact of COVID-19 on their workforce and their surrounding communities.
