Osama Malik, principal for digital strategy and management at Booz Allen Hamilton, has said that low-code platforms can help organizations automate information technology modernization processes and reduce system maintenance and development costs.
In an Appian guest piece published Monday on Federal News Network, Malik noted that low-code platforms include prebuilt systems designed to integrate with common tools and infrastructure. Such features can help organizations automate manual tasks, modify workflows and support the implementation of artificial intelligence and machine learning, he said.
According to Malik, low-code platforms enable nontechnical personnel to collaborate and execute mission requirements while allowing smoother and more secure cloud migration activities.
He added that such platforms are built to operate with newer systems and aggregate data from multiple sources to support various applications and services.
“It’s important to not think of low code platforms as a silver bullet that can do all things for all situations and scenarios and needs,” said Malik. “But it can be a powerful ingredient in a modern IT landscape to provide acceleration, efficiencies and faster time to market for certain types of applications, particularly those that are focused around workflow, case management and business process automation.”
