Low-Code and Poly Clouds in 2023: The Future of Cloud Computing
This blog is based on the article “Low-Code & Poly-Clouds in 2023” by Chetan Venkatesh, CEO and Co-founder of Macrometa, originally published by The Fast Mode in February 2023.
Cloud computing has revolutionized the way businesses operate, offering cost-effective and scalable solutions that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. However, managing multiple cloud environments can be complex and time-consuming, requiring businesses to use different tools and technologies to manage each platform. Application development can also be time-consuming and expensive and often siloed by departments.
Enter low-code and poly clouds. These two technologies offer a simplified way for businesses to manage cloud environments and streamline application development and deployment.
The benefits of low-code
Low-code platforms offer a simplified approach to application development, with pre-built templates and drag-and-drop interfaces that make it easy for developers to build and deploy applications quickly. This can help to reduce the time and cost of application development while also improving the speed and agility of the development process. Low-code platforms are becoming increasingly popular among businesses of all sizes, as they offer a cost-effective way to build and deploy applications without the need for extensive coding knowledge.
The article lists that low code is accessible even for non-technical users, letting developers focus on more complex projects and therefore provide a better use of developers’ time. The key perk - a faster time to market, or as the article states, “they who build faster win.” Of course, if you don’t need as many specialized developers, you can reduce costs, and, “time is money.” Lastly, the article indicates low code provides total visibility and makes collaboration easier.
Be ready for data transformation initiatives
“We can unlock the power of multiple cloud service providers with a polycloud strategy. This approach offers unparalleled efficiency, leveraging the unique strengths and capabilities of each vendor to maximize your business potential - not just saving resources but gaining them,” per Chetan Venkatesh in the article.
Unlike multicloud, which involves managing multiple cloud platforms separately, poly clouds allow businesses to build applications that can run on multiple cloud platforms from a single platform. Combining low-code and poly clouds offers even greater benefits, enabling businesses to take advantage of the strengths of different cloud platforms while also streamlining the application development and deployment process.
