Jakub, what are no-codeapplications,

and how are they different from traditional

softwar development?

No-code applications are tools that allow you to create

digital products, such as websites, information systems,

mobile applications, automated workflows, etc., without

requiring coding knowledge. This method is very popular

among those that want to quickly develop an information

system, application or website for a fraction of the price

it would cost through a standard ERP tool. Products

created in this way also maintain comparable levels of

functionality and user-friendliness as ones developed

using other means. Nonetheless, picking the appropriate

tool and supplier for the implementation is also very

important, and so any action should be preceded with

adequate process analysis and risk mitigation.

What types of companies are no-code applications

best suited for?

No-code platforms have expansive and diverse

applications, and may be beneficial to many different

types of companies. They are well suited for small

companies or start-ups that need to quickly develop and

test out new ideas, while not having sufficient financial

resources or time to hire a software development

team. This solution allows these companies to quickly

create prototypes and implement applications or

websites without requiring a large entry investment.

Medium sized and large companies may also find

these platforms helpful in the development of internal

tools, process automation, or in the creation of an

application for customers. No-code platforms are

also universal in terms of field specialization. We have

What main benefits can no-code applications

offer companies?

No-code applications can offer a variety of benefits

to companies that either do not have an experienced

internal development team or lack the space in their

budget for this type of technological development.

Traditional software development can be very

time consuming and costly, especially if it requires

the acquisition and maintenance of a software

development team. No-code platforms allow

companies to build and run applications without

coding, which can drastically decrease expenditures

in their development. They also allow products to be

built and implemented much faster, as they eliminate

the need to write and test code. In addition to that

they allow for relatively diverse automation options,

allowing for simple implementation into the company’s

current digital ecosystem, easy development of

more efficient processes, and saving time that would

otherwise have to be spent manually transferring data.

How does the professional public view

these platforms?

Many professionals have agreed that no-code

platforms give a wider spectrum of people

the opportunity to create applications and solutions.

This expands innovation options and allows for faster

experimentation and implementation of new ideas.

On the other hand, however, the market with nocode apps has exploded, like is the case with any

new technology, and therefore, new services are

being released daily. This means that companies

have to be careful when assessing the capabilities

and drawbacks of individual solutions in order to

pick the right one. Cyber security should be among

one of the main concerns when deciding on which

application the company will use.

successfully implemented this solution in many different

manufacturing as well as service companies ourselves.

What recommendations would you give company

managers that are considering this solution?

I would recommend to anyone that has slightly above

average IT skills to find a no-code application and

try to tinker with it, create a quick model process

and compare what the program is capable of against

what you are looking for. If you happen to be less

experienced in IT, I would suggest talking to someone

who has experience with the technology and perhaps

getting a recommendation and learning some basics

from them.

Jakub, thank you for the interview. ǀ 49
