Why You Should Use LCNC To Improve Workflows
The issues with poorly designed workflow processes are well known: lost data, task duplication and wasted time (to name a few). According to IDC, companies lose 20-30% of their revenue every year due to inefficiencies. As the need to drive efficiencies—or the risk of becoming obsolete—becomes more acute, organizations are examining their business processes and workflows. They are identifying where they are cumbersome, out of date, or just generally suboptimal—and how these workflows can be improved.
Unfortunately, while business units seek to drive efficiencies and increase productivity, the IT team is already overburdened. It does not have the resources available to fully support business users in the design and implementation of improved workflows. IT alone cannot create applications as urgently as the business demands them.
This is where citizen development and the use of low-code/no-code (LCNC) platforms becomes key. Here are the key benefits of using LCNC in the re-design of workflows (compared to traditional application development):
1. Ease of build: Many LCNC platforms include built-in workflow engines, further simplifying the process. For example, Salesforce has Flow Builder, which combines point-and-click builders with reusable building blocks. Creatio has Studio Creatio with a BPM engine to manage structured and unstructured processes.
