Where Today Meets Tomorrow


Low-Code and the Case of the Disrupted Developers

Change is inevitable for any organization looking to remain relevant or progress. However, implementing it is not easy because people who are used to doing things a certain way will likely view it with suspicion.

This is one of the biggest obstacles that CTOs that wish to introduce their developers to low-code platforms face. Many software developers are reluctant to embrace it because they feel that it’s here to replace them.

It is therefore important for a CTO to explain the value that low-code brings to the developers before introducing it.

In this third of six episodes investigating low-code myths, the host Michael Boland is joined by two guests: Isaac Sacolick – founder and President of StarCIO, a company that helps organizations adopt digital transformation – and a low-code curios, Ginni Saraswati.

Today, you’ll learn how to approach the introduction of low-code platforms to a team that is used to coding all their applications. You’ll also hear about the benefits that such a platform can bring to an organization. Additionally, you’ll learn about the role that a CTO should play in the integration of a low-code platform as part of the application development solutions.

What You’ll Learn in this Episode:

  • How to promote the adoption of low-code within a team that has a strong culture (07:00)
  • Two important things that a CTO has to consider to be successful (07:35)
  • How low-code speeds up software development (09:01)
  • How a CTO can orchestrate the adoption of low-code platforms (10:07)
