According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, every company will be a software company in the near future—if it isn't one already, that is.

What Is a Low-Code Platform?
As the name suggests, a low-code platform is a solution that enables users to quickly and easily build software applications with only a minimum amount of coding involved. Often, low-code platforms have a WYSIWYG, point-and-click visual interface, so that users can see what the application will look like while they're creating it.
Why Should You Use a Low-Code Platform?
Traditional software projects have a high initial investment and require people who already have a high level of expertise in the required skill set. Low-code platforms, on the other hand, enable you to get up and running with a minimum amount of effort. This speed and efficiency ultimately makes your company more agile, as you're able to become a proactive, innovative force in the face of rapidly changing business conditions.
