Custom Application Development is still relevant in this age of low-code and no-code solutions. Here’s why.

With the rise of low-code or no-code solutions out there, life seems pretty sorted out for most. No backlogs to worry about, no engineers to deal with and most importantly, no more second thoughts about building the application.

 

Although low-code and no-code solutions are a disruption in the digital industry, the question everybody’s asking is:

Why are people still investing time and money on custom application development?

Once I asked my friend to order a pizza and the friend got me a pizza with pineapple on it. We aren’t friends anymore. But I learnt an important lesson: If you can customize something to your liking, you better go for it. Just because it is the easy way out, it doesn’t necessarily translate as the best way out.

 

The primary advantage that custom application development has over low-code or no-code solutions is its limitless scope. Yes, we advocate taking smaller steps but just because you start small, doesn’t mean you need to stay small. There must always be enough space for applications to grow once user inputs start coming in.

 

Here are a few reasons why custom application development is still relevant in this age of low-code or no-code tools.

1.    Made to suit your customers

Unless you are George Clooney or a mannequin, wearing a readymade suit can never look good on you. The readymade solutions for app development available out there are made for the masses. It almost never exactly fits your customers’ expectations. Going for custom development takes care of that, giving you a focused approach to your customers and gives them a personalized experience.

2.    Freedom of design

We’ve come across businesses trying to accommodate their brand language & design to the no-code/low-code solutions they plan on using. That isn’t right in any context as it should be the other way around. Custom built systems help you break free from these limitations of boxed tools and systems, bringing consistency in the product to call yours.

Also, the prominent use cases of Python are Web Development, Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning and its subfields, Data Science, Big Data, Internet of things, Embedded systems, Fastapi, Ethical Hacking. The list is huge!

3. Cut costs by cutting down vestigial features

 

Readymade solutions often come laden with features that you will probably never ever need or use. But given the nature of the transaction, you end up paying for those features anyway. That right there is an expense you could avoid by getting the system with the required featured set built from scratch. Nothing more, nothing less.

4. Scalable & Secured

 

Every product must grow & it should be structured to support such growth. Custom build apps can have a robust structure behind them with enough space to adapt to the ever-evolving business requirements.

 

Similarly, custom development is all about reducing dependencies on forces beyond your control, hence reducing the risks of cyber attacks. That makes them a secure alternative to ready-made tools and solutions out there.

Once I asked my friend to order a pizza and the friend got me a pizza with pineapple on it. We aren’t friends anymore. But I learnt an important lesson: If you can customize something to your liking, you better go for it. Just because it is the easy way out, it doesn’t necessarily translate as the best way out.

 

You can check out this use case from one of the Custom Application development by our team.

If you’ve got the time to get products built from scratch, go for it instead of looking for automated boxed solutions. It won’t be easy but at least it would be yours to call, care for and control.
