Use codeless technology to unlock the power of your workforce

2023 is going to be the employee experience year, and you need to be here for it.
Today, the speed of transformation of companies has made a new breakthrough. In Gartner’s 2022-2023 surveys, 69% CFO plans to increase their spending on digital technologies, and CIOs are doubling down on the acceleration time to value digital investments. Some digital initiatives that usually take more than a year to complete have been rolled out in a matter of weeks. This leaves no room for miscommunication and wasted time.
This new pace of work, along with old management practices, has fueled another macro trend: Employee burnout. The current economic downturn has put additional pressure on employees to do more, faster in an increasingly noisy and complex digital work environment.
How can employees keep up? Better yet, what can organizations do now to truly unleash the power of their workforce and enable their employees to do their best work with speed, success, and dedication? satisfied?
Embrace the next big thing
Say hello to a new way to enable workflow. No code/low code technology has been a rising star in the past few years and is expected to shine next year. In fact, VMR Research estimates that the low-code development platform market size is predicted to grow nearly 2,000% within eight years, increasing from $12.43 billion in 2020 to $233.43 billion in 2028.
This new approach makes software development easier, faster and democratized. It allows everyday workers to create technical solutions and software applications easily without programming (coding) knowledge. For example, when your employees use spreadsheets or tables, they don’t think about complex technology. They are using a simple yet very powerful tool. Finally, step by step, they started automating a very complex and intrinsic workflow without even realizing it.
Put no code solutions in the hands of employees give them the ability to do the kinds of jobs that were previously only available to developers and deep-tech professionals. We call these employees “citizen developer,” and thanks to new technologies, it’s easier than ever to achieve employee-built collaborative work structures and keep employees flowing.
Empowering citizen developers
Empowering employees with code-free technology can make their lives much easier. They can automate routine tasks and focus on their most important work instead of spending a disproportionate amount of time recording activities they’ve completed into a software database. . Furthermore, citizen developers speed things up because they have the ability to solve their own problems quickly without having to wait for the IT department or deploy point solutions.
Another important aspect of codeless software that makes workflows efficient is that employees can collaborate in a more complex way. Any software out there that doesn’t have a best-in-class collaboration embedded into it will be marketed. If there’s no collaboration in your work systems — and collaboration is often lacking in legacy tools — it’s a dead end. That’s partly because it doesn’t help you unlock the power of the company or its employees. Cooperation is an essential ingredient.
Put the code in the right hand
How can you get code-free technology into the hands of your employees? The IT department guided us up to speed digital transformation journey over the past few years, and they will continue to overcome it.
While administrative staff and workers are the ones who can really see the impact from code-free solutions, the IT department is often responsible for acquisition decisions. Pay attention, though. Typically, the IT department will purchase an end-to-end software solution that employees must retrofit to their workflow in order to implement them efficiently.
For citizen developers, however, the equation is upside down. Employees can create their own solutions around their existing workflow, making software a complement to their work rather than becoming a burden.
To maximize efficiency from these purchasing decisions, the IT department must consult with employees, especially administrative staff and subordinates, to identify technology needs from a real perspective. exam.
Plan for a bright future
2021 is the year of digital transformation and 2022 is the year of combined work. If organizations want to succeed in 2023, they need to start strategizing to improve the employee experience. By focusing on who you are — the core of every company — you can innovate, outpace your competition, and build a strong culture.
Unlock the power of your employees by giving them the ability to self-heal, automate, and create and change their own workflow on the fly. As businesses equip their employees with code-free self-driving technology, it’s been proven to help democratize workflow, automate previously stagnant processes, and ultimately optimize business activities.
We are facing an economic downturn and the need to increase productivity, time to market and bottom line, while reducing burnout. Empowering employees to self-motivate will become important in the new year.
