In previous articles, we’ve talked about the contributions being made by citizen developers in may organizations. They’re using low-code platforms like frevvo to create mobile web apps in record time for day-to-day business problems.
Last week, I came across this nice new infographic from the University of Alabama at Birmingham Collat School of Business. As they say, “the skills gap is the difference between the technology available and the workforce’s ability to use it.”
Highlights of the infographic are:
Almost 40% of companies have a moderate to major skills gap. The resulting digital inefficiency can be deadly – costing you as much as 20% in lost productivity. Simple things like automating routine, everyday processes like Purchase Orders and Leave Approvals can go a long way.
We think citizen developers can make a huge difference, especially when they’re given access to and training on low-code platforms like frevvo. We see it in our customers all the time – citizen developers at many frevvo customers have helped to create incredibly effective, high-quality apps quickly and at reasonable cost.
In fact, Central Wyoming College recently created a fully digital Purchase Order approval that looks great, works on mobile devices and meets business requirements in less than 10 days of work. It’s hard to imagine anyone coding an app that quickly.
Among pacesetters, who believe technology is essential to development and blaze the way forward, almost 80% use citizen developers.
You have little choice. You simply cannot afford to take months to create a web portal or mobile app. Mobile developers are extremely expensive if you can find them. There’s huge benefit and tremendous ROI to be gained from using a low-code approach for an increasing array of projects.
With every release of frevvo, there’s a little less code to write – whether through new and upgraded wizards or the Visual Rule Builder or a new connector.
