Managing Governance and
One of the major cons of the Low-code strategy is that it puts a lot of power into employees’ hands, which may cause severe security risks, leaving organisation data subject to the agendas of employees. Thus, it must be severely governed and closely monitored.
Apart from the CoE, it is also essential to set up governance structures and data control mechanisms to prevent ‘shadow IT’. Specific platforms have inbuilt “guardrails”, – which can be defined at the organisation level to control and govern the application development and deployment.
These governance guardrails help the IT department to establish chains of authority and ensure new applications meet security standards. They can also set policies and provide oversight for non-technical teams within the organisation to prevent management issues arising from data security loss. When necessary, administrators should be able to add code, set restrictions and permissions, and maintain the programs that citizen developers create.
In an organisation, neither LCNC nor the citizen developers who use it are intended to replace the traditional developers. Effective oversight is the only way to ensure the Low code strategy is implemented correctly.
Also, integration management is a crucial aspect of management, especially as it deals with third-party applications. As businesses become more interconnected, the business applications should also be integrated with multiple internal and external systems. Thus, every team grows together to scale the business.
