The Covid-19 pandemic has permanently changed the business configuration in the most different industries. Digital transformation processes have been accelerated, and the demand for process and workflow automation in business and team management is growing.
In this context, low-code application platforms (LCAPs) have gradually become a reality and a requirement: studies by Gartner show that “more than 65% of development projects will be carried out upon these platforms by 2024”. LCAPs are a kind of low-code development platform in a modular system which simplifies software development based on out-off-the-box and structured solutions. They also make processes more agile, reduce costs and require a considerably less technical background by the users.
In addition, they are the least complex low-code platform in the industry when compared to Multi-Experience Development Platforms (MXDP) or Business Process Management Systems (BPMS). That is why they are the most suitable for managers seeking to bring more autonomy to the company’s processes, centralizing them and without involving the IT team.

CAP Platform, Iteris Agile-based process automation platform, uses the LCAP principles – and, therefore, brings simplification and innovation of low-code development to applications and business processes automation in several functions (HR, Procurement, IT, After Sales, Customer Service, Backoffice, On-boarding, etc.).
Below, you can see the key benefits and distinguishing elements of no-code/low-code platforms, such as CAP Platform, for the organizational process management:
1. Flexibility is the key
As LCAP systems are modular (based on pre-designed elements and structures), the code changes during the software development is much faster, which brings more flexibility to deadlines and more agility to the implementation of new processes. Platforms like CAP are the most suitable for companies with Agile development mindset based on sprints, squads and high value-added deliveries.
2. Development for all
Nowadays, empowering employees with no-code/low-code technologies reinforces two essential aspects for the optimized organizational processes: on the one hand, they empower teams in various areas of the company so that they can develop simple applications, even with no extensive technical knowledge of development; on the other hand, they significantly reduce the IT backlog as low and medium complexity demands can be met by other teams through LCAPs.
3. Custom layers
In addition to more autonomy for decentralizing the simple development demands that are previously concentrated only on the IT team, LCAPs also bring one more benefit to processes: customization. As they require less technical background, low-code platforms allows employees and leaders in different areas to customize the system layers according to their needs, adapting software and applications for various purposes.
4. Focus on business
Low-code platforms offer significant benefits to businesses as they allow companies to have faster deliveries and less errors based on structured development modules. In addition, cost reduction is also a highlight for businesses adopting LCAPs, since simplifying processes requires considerably less investments in maintenance – which represent more than 70% of the total cost of a company’s application development lifecycle.
