Measures and impacts

This results with low-code in concrete use

As you are well aware – there will be no way to avoid low-code in the future with regard to application development – you have to face it. The fact is, it’s not just individuals who benefit from low-code, but whole departments and, in the long term, the entire company. However, important steps are necessary to successfully establish Low-Code in your company.

In addition to implementing this technology, the approaches for process optimization must be considered and, if necessary, revised. Above all, a change of people’ mindsets is necessary to benefit from the many advantages of low-code. Low-code brings change to the enterprise – to your IT and your business departments. Accept the challenge.

Interview: How digital transformation succeeds with low code

Impacts for your company

The use of a low-code platform should not be limited to individual parts of a company. The intention of a low-code platform is to act across the entire company and to drive the complete digitization process ahead.

Usually, a low-code platform is established in only a few departments besides IT at the beginning. However, for both economic and strategic reasons, it makes sense to do this across all divisions company-wide for the long-term.

Impacts for your IT

The IT department is often considered the bottleneck of digitization. The reason for this is not a lack of motivation or the ability of the employees, but rather the limited resources in combination with the constantly changing requirements. Every company knows this problem. Low-code platforms are so successful and future-proof because they make it possible to counteract precisely these challenges and create new opportunities from which the IT department also benefits enormously.

Nevertheless, it is precisely in IT that the greatest skepticism towards low-code prevails. This results from the historically conditioned loss of control due to so-called shadow IT, which arises primarily in the business departments. But there is no reason for skepticism, because low-code platforms offer the best conditions for compliance with IT governance and thus 100 percent control over all applications that are created with these platforms.

„We compared several low-code platforms. Integration into the existing SAP ecosystem was easier with Simplifier than with other solutions.“

Impacts for your departments

The business departments of a company benefit to a large extent from the use of a low-code platform. Thus, it is the employees of the business department who will drive their digitization in the future with the help of the new technology by independently creating the applications that they really need.

Moreover, the departmental employees get the chance to drive innovations on their own. In a long term, this helps companies to implement their digitization strategy more quickly, to establish new business models in a timely manner and to meet their goals even sooner.

Business leaders and professionals about Simplifier:

„Simplifier empowers us as a department to deploy UI5 apps for our production line with Shopfloor and SAP integration in a very short time. My team was able to create integrated apps in a few days even without programming skills.“

Sebastian Grimm | Head of Operational Excellence, Siemens AG

„Thanks to the integrated grid portal solution, which was implemented based on the Simplifier low-code technology, we are able to manage the grid access process completely digitally in terms of planning and accounting.“

Karl-Heinz Kasel | Head of customer access services, SWO Netz GmbH

„We were looking for a technology that would allow us to completely digitize internal as well as external processes while following a clear software architecture, that we found with Simplifier.“

Jochen Ganz | Manager New Business & Innovation, WEINIG Group

„The key criterion in the choice of a platform was Simplifier’s strong SAP expertise, as KHS is very SAP-centric. We urgently needed a platform vendor who could operate natively in the SAP world.“

Torben Brill | Project Manager, KHS Group

With Simplifier as a basis, it’s easy for us to iteratively develop new app features and implement customizations based on customer feedback in a timely manner and without much effort.
