What is Low-Code?

What is Low-code and how is it different from no-code?

First of all, it is important to mention that low-code and no-code are two terms describing development platforms.

The intent of these platforms is to help you build applications. Basically, no-code requires no coding skills to build an application, where low-code requires coding skills but takes off most of the development effort required when you start from scratch or even using existing blocks. Usually, a low-code platform will allow you to build an app by describing business objects, UI elements and to write some code for handling your very specific events.

Why Ganister has a special place?

Ganister is a low-code platform even if you can build a totally working application without writing any line of code. The code you may write only comes when you need to execute some very specific processes. The great value is that all the code you write is supported through software upgrades. That is usually the issue when you start a software from scratch. There are so many libraries that need upgrades or replacement. Ganister takes this action for you while maintaining your code.

Configuration Management

Ganister has a special place because it is the only low-code platform to provide configuration management without any hardcoded business-specific mechanisms. Ganister handles everything as nodes which provides a great configuration management capability not only for parts and documents, but for any type of objects. Configuration management becomes available everywhere you need it in your company. It enables system engineering, integrated logistic support, and more.
