Are Low-Code Apps Good for IBM i Developers?

Posted by Tim Losee on Aug 22, 2018 11:12:25 AM

Low-code app builders have become increasingly popular recently and many people have questions about how it can help (or even hurt) IBM i development. A Low-Code tool is "software that provides an environment programmers use to create application software through graphical user interfaces and configuration instead of traditional computer programming. The platform may focus on design and development of a particular kind of application: such as databases, business processes, or user interfaces such as web applications. Such platforms may produce entirely operational applications, or require additional coding for specific situations. Low-code development platforms reduce the amount of traditional hand-coding, enabling accelerated delivery of business applicationst," according to Wikipedia.

These low-code apps are quickly taking over as the development method for many applications that would normally be coded by hand. Low-code development tools create useful apps by configuring them interactively with little or no programming required.

Depending who you ask, these low-code apps are either a blessing or a curse. Many directors, managers, and C-Level people love the idea of these low-code apps. Whatever helps get useful apps into their users' hands faster and cheaper... they are all for it. But some IBM i developers have a different thought process on these low-code apps. They have questions about the day-to-day use of low-code app builders, including:

  • Will I lose the ability to control the fine details of my app when using a "builder?"
  • Will this tool take away my job, or make my job seem less valuable?
  • How do I handle those users that are very picky and demand that minute details be built into the app?

Let's discuss each one in detail:
