How the Low-Code Application Platform (LCAP) is Changing the Construction Industry

Every construction project is different. Every owner, every general contractor, every subcontractor, every program manager is unique.

As the construction industry evolves – with more of these stakeholders recognizing how digital transformation can help them better streamline processes and reduce risk – choosing the right information management tool is one of the most critical elements of a project.

With business strategy and technology strategy increasingly intertwined, outdated technology often limits strategic options and business agility. To resolve these limitations, updating technology architecture is a necessity.

A cloud-based consolidated platform that connects all aspects of construction management considers three factors: time to delivery, time for training and cost.

When a project management information system (PMIS) is built on a low-code application platform (LCAP), users can modify it with apps to grow and change as their business does. It eliminates the need for coding experts to create these apps.

The low-code development platforms make it easier and faster for users to create software applications. Using a visual, model-driven approach, low-code platforms eliminate the need for coding expertise to transform the way business and IT teams to deliver applications.

Gartner predicts that by 2024, LCAP development will be responsible for more than 65% of app development activity.

Of course, LCAP is only functional for software that was initially created on that particular platform. That’s why it is imperative that owners and general contractors carefully select their construction management software to take advantage of this critical capability.

With LCAP, you don’t have to wait for a software upgrade or submit a vendor request for new features and hope that what you need will make it into the next release. Great ideas can only add value if implemented, and LCAP offerings can help you can take your business exactly where you want it to go.
