Low-Code Could Replace 'Traditional' Coding Within Months


More than two-thirds (69%) of businesses surveyed saw no-code evolving from a crisis technology to a core technology that they intend to integrate into their businesses for greater cost control, among other things.

The Mendix software company estimates low-code adoption climbed from 77% last year to 94% this year, with 40% of businesses currently using low-code applications for mission-critical solutions.

Mendix’s 2022 State of Low-Code Support study also cites Gartner's forecast that low-code or no-code applications will comprise 70% of apps by 2025, up from 25% in 2020.

One in nine businesses surveyed for the study said adopting low-code apps during the pandemic spared them from reputational damage or cost-cutting measures, while 69% saw no-code transitioning to a core technology that they intend to integrate to better control cost and other factors.

Public-sector entities also have ramped up low-code adoption, and Mendix's report claims it could dethrone more "traditional" coding within months.
