Don’t think lowcode, think lesscode

The trend for low code is fantastic, with Gartner predicting that by 2024 low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity, this is testimony to the market demand for speed and agility.

However, lowcode environments are a misnoma. They might provide a ‘low code’ way of doing the development, however in the background they generate almost as much code as traditional development.

The real benefit comes from a low-code environment that delivers less source code. Not only do you see the speed benefit, but also importantly, this delivers longevity, future proofing against new developments, lower testing overhead, less risk of obsolescence, better documentation and faster release cycles.

SCAD Software has been working for ten years to create a programming language agnostic framework with customisable building blocks that cover the complete end-2-end process of an business. Our methodology is to replace source code with metadata in a database and use REST based services to connect to an infinite range of software and services.  Delivered as a service we deliver on premises, in the cloud or hybrid.

The results speak for themselves. Our track record shows that we deliver at least a 30% reduction in source code, frequently as much as a 95% reduction. This is how we can deliver a 75% improvement in speed to market.

Andy Fensham

Founder

After working as a software consultant to the global banking industry for six years, Andy has devoted the last two decades to realising his vision to transform the software development industry.

Since 1998, when he founded SCAD Software, Andy was aware that the business world was accumulating a vast and unsustainable level of technical debt, with legacy source code becoming a risk factor for organisations of all size. As markets change and digital transformation becomes integral to every business, Andy realised that out-of-date software would put the future of many organisations in jeopardy.

To address this risk, Andy developed a radical new approach to custom software development, which time and time again has delivered large-scale software projects 75% faster than other methods.

Andy is now overseeing the expansion of SCAD Software into new markets in Asia, Middle East, UK, Europe and North America as well as extending the portfolio to include a number of packaged solutions.
