#495: [Right Now at AWS] Episode 13 - Low Code / No Code Solutions
Accelerating the pace of intelligent automation adoption and new product development without adding new devs is possible with Low Code / No Code solutions. With Low Code / No Code, you can gain development time in multiple ways. One example is reducing your business’s tactical dependence on IT and enabling business users to drive their own digital transformation with drag-and-drop interfaces that abstract the codebase. Meanwhile, a large-scale implementation includes using a software platform to assemble and deploy solutions with minimal or no need for additional code. In this episode, Katie speaks with Madhu Raman, AWS Worldwide Head of Intelligent Automation, to learn about current Low Code / No Code implementations and future possibilities.
