2. Low-Code Platform is NOT a Code Eliminator
This is another thing that gets muddled in all the hype. Low-code does not eliminate the need for coding. It just reduces it. You will still need code to properly develop an application.
Low-code platforms have visual interfaces that make the process of coding easier. Instead of having to link modules and APIs together through an abstract code, low-code just lets a developer do it through a graphical user interface. But when there are custom implementations to be done, there is a need for coding.
If a vendor is promising that you won’t have to code through low-code, you know they are over-promising. These false promises tempt you to buy first, and worry about fixing later.
3. Low-Code Platforms is NOT Just for Small Apps
Contrary to popular belief, low-code systems isn’t meant only for small apps. Low-code can create applications just as complex and sophisticated as traditional hand coding can.
Complex enterprise-grade applications are being developed on low-code platform.
If large enterprises are willing to trust in low-code platforms for complex implementations, that alone should be enough to prove that low-code isn’t just for simple implementations.
4. Low-Code Platform is NOT Unscalable
There’s very little truth to this myth, if at all. Low-code app development platforms are typically built on the cloud, which means that you can scale up or down as you need.
This might have been true during the early days of low-code, since it was originally limited to how well you can develop. But since the advent of the cloud, that’s no longer the case.
Your vendor can easily help you scale up according to your specific needs.
If someone is trying to convince you that low-code isn’t scalable, then they’re relying on outdated information.
