The pandemic has accelerated the digitization journey of enterprises to a tremendous speed. Companies who have already come a long way in the modern way of working are at an advantage.

Citizen Developers:

Tap into the power of citizen developers. One of the main benefits of low-code / no-code platform is- it reduces the strain on the main IT department. Enterprises do not have to depend only on developers to create software solutions. Low-code or no-code development gives those with limited coding knowledge the power to develop apps. Business analysts and non-IT staff who have excellent understanding of business requirements can leverage the low-code/ no-code application development on the Now platform to produce innovative solutions. Various stakeholders with various levels of coding skills can work together making the development process agile, thus increasing productivity. The App Engine provides a centralized view for IT teams to control and monitor the project, providing a collaborative environment for developers. This helps to further scale and grow the business.

Increase delivery speed:

With the ever-increasing volume of IT requests from various stakeholders, enterprises can allocate simple apps to junior developers using the low-code / no-code development and let senior developers take up more complex native programming. With some weight shifted away from software developers to citizen developers, enterprises will be able to fulfil more service requests in a shorter timeframe. This also increases delivery speed and saves cost.

Mobile-first:

Multi-device compatibility is built with the low-code / no-code app development, which allows enterprises to build robust applications compatible with all platforms and devices. All the apps developed in ServiceNow App Engine will automatically work on mobile devices. Developers do not have to write codes for different devices, as the platform will provide an easy, familiar and responsive design for desktop and mobile.
