Low-code platforms vs. traditional development
Solving problems with low-code solutions
Low-code platforms employ visual development instead of traditional code – making them uniquely fast and flexible. As such, low-code solutions enable you to quickly benefit from added business value and to easily make market-relevant product adjustments where needed.
Objectivity has been meeting clients’ complex business requirements by delivering high-quality custom software since 1991. Our demonstrated track record in the industry, combined with the capabilities offered by low-code development platforms, enables our experts to build applications faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Moreover, thanks to the visual modelling approach employed by low-code, clients can now work closer with technical specialists to directly contribute to the design, build, and deployment of applications. This, in turn, helps contribute to higher levels of business and customer satisfaction.
Our teams’ breadth of expertise and up-to-date knowledge of low-code platforms – as well as the fact that we are a proud Microsoft and Mendix delivery partner – enables us to take full advantage of low-code development capabilities.
The benefits of low-code development
Forget about traditional, time-consuming programming – low-code application development enables you to build applications much faster than by means of coding.
Immediate business value
Thanks to low-code’s drag and drop capabilities and predefined components, we’re able to deliver business value up to 10x faster than with traditional development.
Consumer grade quality
Low-code solutions are scalable, secure, extendable, and integrate well with the rest of the IT ecosystem – facilitating the creation of consumer grade user interfaces.
One-click deployments enable high flexibility and allow you to quickly react to changing business needs.
Apps that run in mere minutes
Low-code platforms leverage the cloud-first approach, making it possible to run apps in minutes. They also guarantee deployment and hosting flexibility as well as the possibility to extend the platform.
Low-code applications are highly versatile – according to Forrester, they’re suitable for both small- and large-scale apps and they work equally well as mobile, web and responsive design solutions.
The right solution to meet your needs
Which low-code platform is the best choice for me?
Every business has its unique needs and objectives – hence, the answer to that question always depends on a variety of different factors and variables.
Moreover, every low-code development platform has its set of specific strengths, which can prove beneficial when solving certain business problems, (but not necessarily others).
As such, the key is to distinguish which low-code platform can be employed where in a manner that maximises efficiency.
Our in-house experts have broad practical knowledge of the world’s leading low-code platforms – Mendix, and Microsoft Power Platform – allowing them to help you choose the best low-code platform for your business.
Rapid application development
Part of a bigger ecosystem
Software systems rarely exist in isolation. Low-code platforms can be a great addition to your existing environments, whether you want to add flexibility to your existing services or to build a new system that requires further integration.
Depending on your unique needs, we can help you to:
Extend the low-code platform
We extend the missing capabilities of low-code platforms by integrating with other solutions, building plugins, extensions, or by reusing available features.
Supplement your solution with IoT, AI or BI
We use low-code to build systems which connect IoT devices and integrate Artificial Intelligence and Business Intelligence frameworks.
Extend the life of your existing environment
We have extensive knowledge of a broad range of technologies, enabling us to help you decide whether to build or buy, to choose low-code or traditional methods, and whether to extend your existing environments or to start fresh.
Full-cycle low-code development
According to Gartner, by 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity. Start exploring low-code possibilities today to stay ahead of the competition.

Our success stories
Greater Manchester Combined Authority is the first region in the UK to launch an innovative Early Years app, which was created to give young children in the area a better start in life. The app was launched as part of the city-region’s Digital Blueprint project which seeks to leverage digital transformation capabilities to better serve citizens.
SUEZ has built an e-commerce platform on Mendix, but found out the solution provides no easy way of building SEO-friendly websites. We have solved this problem by developing a custom Mendix plugin.
Leveraging Mendix platform we reduced the time needed to manage 1 business trip by 51%.
