The world is changing at a faster pace than ever before. With the advent of various digital technologies – AI, IoT, SaaS, Mobile, Cloud - there is more data to process and as a result more information to make crucial business decisions. To sustain and stay relevant in changing the technology landscape, the role of Information Technology (IT) has evolved to a great extent. But IT can’t keep up with the explosive business demands of building new-age apps and entering new markets. It can’t afford to follow traditional methods of building applications/APIs by writing custom code. Hence, the need of the hour is to empower all sorts of users and not just IT. In other words, a shift towards – Clicks and No-code.
Integration takes the center stage when it comes to addressing the connectivity concerns arising due to the rampant development of business applications. In a traditional integration system, writing custom code to build point-to-point integrations and middleware solutions are the typical approaches as these are considered cheaper and faster. But due to the scalability limitations of such solutions, these end-up being the enemy of speed and agility that is required to sustain in the tough business conditions.
In the recently concluded Salesforce annual conference Dreamforce 2019, the central theme revolved around the question - How to build connected customer experiences, without writing a single line of code? The technology leaders spoke about the need to moving away from writing custom code and adopting a click and no-code model. They see the transition mainly due to the following three reasons.
1. Custom code leads to slower implementation which delays go-to-market time
2. Slower rollout of enhancements and bug fixes using custom code leads to the dissatisfied end-customer
3. Only a fraction of users (mainly IT) can write custom code
So, the technology champions are rooting for having an integration platform that is built on API-led model, easy to use by LOB users to IT and supports composability and reusability of the integration components.
