No-code explained

No-code is a revolutionary framework that empowers anyone, especially non-technical individuals to visually develop their software application using visual development and be non-reliant on writing code. 

Revolutio is a path-breaking no-code platform that empowers you to build your enterprise-grade application - powered by our suite of pre-architected features that cater to all your needs.

What does a no-code platform mean?

A no-code platform is a collection of pre-architected technologies, libraries, templates, methods and integration mechanisms that allow the end user to simply drag and drop visual components to create an end-use case or software application. 

01

Converts ideas into applications 

Allows end-users or business analysts (also known as resident developers) to convert their ideas and workflows into software applications through a simple drag and drop interface

02

Replaces the coding layer with a visual layer

No-code platforms, in addition to pre-architecting, replace the coding layer which acted as the human-machine interface with a visual layer that is understood by humans and translated automatically to the machine to create the desired software

03

Reduces long implementation cycles 

Empowers end-users to build and go-live with their applications in a matter of days instead of months or years - and supports change management quickly and cost-effectively

Revolutio covers the entire gamut and architecture of a modern-day application development - without the need to write a single line of code. 

What does pre-architected mean?

This means that the hard work on bringing all technology components together and ensuring their integrity and stability has already been done - in this case, by the no-code platform.

Pre-architected explained

This means that the hard work on bringing all technology components together and ensuring their integrity and stability has already been done by the no-code platform.

The end-user can simply start using components that are relevant to their use case and ignore other components.

If they later feel the need to add new components to their use case, they can simply drag and drop new components without disrupting the existing application or the integrity of the code.

Why is this necessary?

Technology today is extremely complex. Each new innovation leads to creation of a new component. These components may be packaged as frameworks, libraries, plug-ins, add-in or simply pieces of codes.

All these components need to be brought together in an efficient and optimal manner to ensure that speed, code integrity and stability is not compromised. Architecting each component requires deep understanding of each technology, a certain degree of trial and error and more importantly requires thousands of line of code to be written to bring these together in a manner that each component doesn’t conflict with another and maintains is integrity and intended purpose

Revolutio is pre-architected - with several features including data integration, database management, API integration, front-end screen creation, user experience creation, creation of portals, development of computation logic, reporting, visualization, analytics and cognitive capabilities - without the need to write a single line of code. 

How is no-code different from low-code?

No-code and low-code have long been classified together and this is a serious fallacy that impacts the understanding of no-code and the way to think about its end-use. 

Low-code is an incremental innovation on existing coding frameworks


In simple terms, low-code are developer tools that reduce the quantum of coding required for repeatable tasks for a coder. They are sometimes supplement by plug-ins and add-ins that are created as templates.

No-code allows a user to build their application without the need to write a single line of code.

Low-code systems are essentially toolkits or toolsets 

Whereas no-code is a platform that doesn’t require the end-use to code at all. No-code doesn’t reduce the need to code - it completely eliminates the need.

More importantly, no-code doesn’t require a solution architect to figure out how to put the pieces together. The distance between concept and end-product is shortened dramatically.

Low-code does not offer the same standard of applications security

Every line of new code written has the potential of adding a new vulnerability in the code. Low-code requires each application to be tested for vulnerabilities and with each new piece of code written requires different methods for identifying vulnerabilities.

All applications built on no-code platforms adhere to same standard of security.
