[Infographic] Low-code vs No-code: What’s the Difference

What is low-code?

Low-code is a way of developing software with minimal coding and scripting. Low-code’s ease of use and simple interface is based on visual process models and drag and drop interfaces. This allows for faster deployment than traditional code, which can take months to write. 

The visual interface can be used by more people, they just require moderate IT knowledge, so this helps to speed up deployment and scale operations. The pre-defined features also result in few bugs (a common issue when manually writing code) and lowers the risk of mistakes.  

When using a low-code approach, it’s likely that a small amount of script will be needed at some point in the project, usually for UX or design features. It is used by those with moderate IT knowledge and technical skills who can add script where necessary, helping to alleviate the burden of the IT department when launching automating processes or building applications. 

 

What is no-code?

No-code is even more straightforward than low-code. It is entirely based on a visual interface, often using pre-built templates. The biggest benefit of a no-code approach is that no technical knowledge is required, so business users can create complete solutions and automate new processes with little to no support from IT. These people are becoming known as citizen developers. 

However, while no-code applications are simple to build, the parameters when using no code are very limited. You can only create something that is based on pre-defined items; so no-code should be used for simple applications that need to be deployed quickly. 

You should not develop processes or applications that require complex integrations or sophisticated business rules using no-code, as any additional complexity or customization will require code. Where this is the case, a no-code project that becomes a low-code project will be more difficult to manage, and perhaps slower than it would be if the project was planned with a low-code mindset from the beginning.
