Introducing the RAD model to your business

Low-Code Rapid Application Development Platforms or RAD as they’re often shortened to are a significant game changer for anyone interested in leveraging tech in their business. Whether you’ve a smaller operation, an established company, or identify as a bootstrapped start-up, these platforms can seriously benefit you if you’re looking to develop on limited funds or staffing. The agility, ease, flexibility and ease of comprehension this tech offers makes them extra appealing if you’re less experienced in the arena or can’t invest the heft of a full-time IT pro (or even a few of them!).

What exactly are they though?

According to Herman Morgan, “A low-code mobile app development platform is a collection of tools and services that enable mobile application developers to build and manage mobile apps that are hassle-free.” When it comes to you implementing them, now is the time to do so, especially if you’re rushing to get an app to market.
