How a Low-Code App Development Tool Can Improve Business Application Development
Building an app is something that you want to do for your business, but you have a lot of doubts about it. It is true that building a business application can enhance the efficiency of a specific task and optimizes the overall process performance. But building an app is always thought to be resource intensive. However, that concept is being proven wrong by using low code app development tools like Microsoft Power Automate (formerly Microsoft Flow).

The Major Challenges of Traditional, Code-Based Business Application Development
When you are using code like HTML, Java, or Python to create a business app, you will face several challenges. Some of the key challenges include:
Longer Development Cycles: Traditional app development cycles involving writing extensive code can be time-consuming. You must work on the wireframe, create the code for each individual element, and then bring it all together. This requires a considerable amount of time and effort.
Need for Coding Expertise: In most cases, you will need to hire an entire team of professionals with coding expertise, who will not only build but also maintain the app. This means that you will have to invest time in the recruitment process and make budgetary allocations for salaries and additional system requirements.
Flexibility and Iteration: Code-based development can be rigid, making it challenging to iterate quickly based on changing business requirements. Any change will require changes in the code, followed by multiple rounds of testing.
These are only some of the reasons why businesses often fail to realize the full potential of having an app ecosystem. In most cases, they spend a lot of time and effort in developing just a few apps which have limited impact on their overall business.

What is a Low Code App Development Tool?
So, what is a low code app development tool and how does it truly impact the way you develop business applications? Simply put, a low code platform is a software platform that enables users to design, develop and deploy applications with minimal requirement for coding or manual programming. This makes apps accessible to team-members with varying levels of technical expertise.
Most low code solutions for enterprises use a visual interface and pre-built components to make it easier for ‘citizen developers’ to create apps. This allows for rapid prototyping and quicker iterations.
At Evolvous, we often use Power Apps – the simple yet effective Microsoft low code app builder. Let us look at some of the advantages of using this platform for your business app development.

Faster Deployment: Power Apps comes with a simple, easy-to-use interface and an extensive range of pre-built components. This will cut the time between conception and deployment of the business application.
No Coding Expertise Needed – One of the biggest advantages of Power Apps is that you can design apps without any extensive coding knowledge. This allows your existing team to develop professional apps and solve work on complicated workflows and resolve issues with usability.
Better Flexibility and Faster Iterations – If you need to make changes, you do not need to take apart the app completely. You can simply make changes to the specific component and logic with just a few clicks, and you are done. This reduces downtime significantly.
Deploy Your App Across Platforms – Business applications developed using Power Apps can be deployed on websites, Microsoft Teams, Dynamics 365, SharePoint, and various other web-based platforms. You can also use distribution options like Microsoft Endpoint Manager or similar third-party MDM solutions. You can also use private enterprise app stores like Microsoft App Center, Apple Volume Purchase Program, and Managed Google Play.
