Imagine a Low Code Superhighway Without Tolls

Low code offers hope for more affordable innovation. It’s the quickest way to market, promising lightning-fast productivity. But what happens when you succeed, and more people want to use your application? Are you on the hook for paying increasing end-user fees? Was there another road without these tolls? Have you defeated the purpose of using a low code/no code strategy before you even started? 

The next generation of application development has begun. At its heart is innovation and competitive advantage. You’re in the progressive leadership just by reading this article. There are, however, fair costs to using a low code/no-code platform. The most overlooked fees are those that scale to number of end-users. When successful adoption drives up these costs, you can be held responsible. 

Budget driven organizations find themselves re-investing in a better platform that scales instead to developers and the application and not to the number of end-users.

Anticipating costs when innovating is the cornerstone of high achievers. Since tools are usually associated with costs per developer or application, why should low code/no-code platforms be different? Selecting tools that generate increasing costs caused by end-user fees means successful development projects fail in budget terms, despite delivering their intended productivity. When this happens, budget-driven organizations find themselves re-investing in a better platform, one that instead scales to developer use and the application and not to the number of end-users. 

The benefits of your IP belong to you. 

Before choosing a low code/no-code platform: 

  1. Look at the true total-cost-of-ownership (TCO). 
  2. Find out if costs scale to your success. 
  3. Make sure your success brings economies of scale. 

After all, the benefits of your IP belong to you. Make sure you get the promise of a low code/no-code platform.
