There’s an increased push for what is being dubbed the citizen developer, coupled with the desire to empower application development and creation by non-developers. This is typically facilitated using low-code or no-code frameworks. These frameworks and tools allow non-developers to use a GUI to grab and move components to make business logic friendly applications.
Empowering the broader IT and business community to create applications to drive business value has an obvious appeal. That said the use of low code and no code platforms aren’t without their own security concerns. Much like any other software product, the rigor that goes into developing the platform and its associated code is a concern that shouldn’t be overlooked.
