“I just want this to get out of my way.”
You know what I’m talking about, right? Things like:
That’s what the landscape is like right now with application development platforms (ADPs) and other low-code/no-code business process tools.
Maybe you’re already using one because they seemed like less of an investment than developing something in-house, with developers and code, but they still got in your way.
What do I mean? One of two things has happened:
Or they have some niche limitation that’s in your way, like a limited number of 3rd-party integrations in a drop-down box and you’re just waiting for them to add the ONE tool you need.
I’ve already seen people asking “Should I become an [application development platform (ADP)] specialist?” There are entire platforms that create job ecosystems around themselves—because of their complexities. They get in your way.
They’re supposed to make things easier, not require new job roles to help you run them. That goes beyond mere technical lock-in.
Here’s the thing though.
Your developers and IT people are the ones who are ultimately responsible for keeping things running.
What if you could buy a solution that puts IT and developers first? “What does that look like?” you might ask.
It’s a Pro-Code/Low-code tool that:
Plus, the price doesn’t scale up just because you use it more.
That’s what Form.io does. It’s total flexibility for building your next business process application.
BUT there’s still a cost. It’s still not for everyone.
A low-code/no-code ADP, in the traditional sense, is a tool that will enable a non-developer to build an application, without coding, but with one or more of the above mentioned strings attached.
Form.io is NOT an ADP in this sense. Your developers will still build the business process app(s) that you need.
There will be coding.
Again, the flexibility.
Because the only strings attached that you want are the API strings.
