There is often a debate regarding Low code platforms' limitations. Some day these software solutions can't compete with traditional frameworks but there are Entreprise platforms that contradict this statement.
Here is a panorama of concrete projects that show this and that answers the following question: What a company can develop with Low code platforms?
SNCF faced challenges in implementing agile processes for their mobile app development, noting that 80% of projects shared common constraints. Opting for a Low Code platform, driven by its Open Source strategy, offline data capabilities, and versatile front-end integration, significantly enhanced SNCF's operational efficiency. Convertigo's solutions are pivotal across SNCF’s three main units, powering over 15,000 B2E users with applications for maintenance, train traffic display, including an offline train maintenance application, connected to IBM Maximo.
BNP Paribas aimed to create a B2E portal for seamless access to critical financial data from varied sources, necessitating data caching to minimize costs and support for both desktop and tablet access. Convertigo was selected for its Low Code backend capabilities, advanced authentication integration, and web/mobile front-end proficiency. The portal now efficiently serves over 40,000 employees, executing 40 million requests in 2018 and saving BNP Paribas over €1M annually.
The French Rugby Federation (FFR) sought to digitize match sheets for all federation-organized competitions, requiring reliable offline mobile app functionality. FFR chose Convertigo’s Low Code platform for its backend integration capabilities and Fullsync offline data technology, developed by Convertigo's system integrator, Orange Business Services. Running on Cloud, this solution ensures over 1,500 rugby matches are digitally processed every weekend, enhancing game management efficiency nationwide.
Carrefour Banque needed a B2C application that connects seamlessly with Carrefour's backend systems and loyalty programs. Convertigo’s backend technology was selected for its ease in transforming JSON to SOAP web services and merging data from diverse systems, including Siebel. The application, now available on iOS and Android, has been downloaded over 200,000 times, showcasing the efficiency and reach of Low Code solutions in the banking sector.
Chantiers required digital applications for daily tasks, integrating data from SAP and Alfresco ECM. Convertigo’s onsite backend technology enabled mobile services from both systems, while Low Code capabilities expedited the development of user-optimized applications. The adoption of Convertigo No Code Studio allowed even non-technical staff to develop digital solutions, leading to the creation of over 100 applications and enhancing operational efficiency across different employee profiles.
Originally built with traditional frameworks, Fnac-Darty redeveloped their "Digital Store" application for tablets, enabling sales staff to manage sales processes from product demonstration to payment. Low Code was chosen for its backend connectivity and front-end development capabilities, as well as its RPA Mainframe technology for seamless integration with existing systems. The project, which significantly reduced development time and costs, now processes 200 sales per minute, contributing an estimated revenue of €1 billion annually.
Of course, this is just a sample of how companies can use Low code platforms and many more use cases will emerge in the coming months and years.
The main idea is to demonstrates the flexibility, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of Low Code platforms in addressing various and complex business challenges.
