How to Leverage Low-Code to Drive and Scale Globally

Ralph Wirth

VP Data Science Solutions

Low-code development is a paradigm-shifting approach to software engineering that is transforming the way organizations build and deploy software. Low-code platforms provide a visual, drag-and-drop interface that enables users to design and deploy software applications without having to write code manually.

 In this talk, we will elaborate how we are building up a central low-code competence center and low code network to further significantly enhance bandwidth for implementation of digital solutions across Schaeffler. We will delve into the various benefits of using low-code platforms, and also typical challenges we faced.

 Furthermore, we will discuss key features of low-code platforms, such as visual modeling, reusable components, and integrations with various data sources and APIs. We will touch upon the potential drawbacks of using low-code platforms, including limited customization options and potential vendor lock-in.
