CTO Roundtable #6

Low-code vs. custom software development: What’s best for your business?

  • 15.12.2020
  • 15:00
  • Is low-code development the same old wine in new bottle or a game changer?
  • When to use low-code platforms and when it’s better to stick to custom code development?
  • Can low-code implementation be beneficial for a custom development project at a later stage?
  • If low-code becomes so popular – would we even need software developers in 10 years?

What we discussed?

During the CTO Roundtable #6, we discussed the differences between two completely different approaches to building your applications: low-code development and custom code development. 

What are the main differences between those two? How to choose the best solution for your business? Can low-code platforms actually increase your enterprise’s productivity?

Our host, Gerbert Oude Velthuis joined forces with Holland FinTech and invited a few experienced guests to discuss this topic.

The event was co-organised by The Software House and Holland FinTech. Personal data is being collected and processed in order to conduct the event.
