Develop custom applications and workflow automations rapidly without writing code
What are Low-code platforms?
Organizations have an increasing need to find visual and quick tools to deploy. This stems from the underlying necessity to digitalize services, customer interactions and internal workflows. Organizations have a lot manual workflows that could be automated, but limited and costly IT resources encourage search for solutions outside the traditional IT governed development.
Low-code platforms promise to tackle these challenges. They enable non-programmers to quickly and easily develop custom applications for business use. These applications are built with a user interface that connects to multiple data sources and they can be used to visualize business insights. Low-code platforms have visual drag-and-drop editors, built-in templates for desktop and mobile apps and ready-made data connectors that allow development without writing code.
Challenges in application and automation development
Time and resource constraints
Legacy system maintenance
"Shadow" IT governance
Leverage existing technology
Data security and traceability
Why choose a Low-code platform?
Low-code development taps into the typical challenges that application or process automation development involves. By enabling business users to develop productivity apps and automated workflows rapidly, it empowers organizations to digitalize and transform their business faster and more cost-efficiently.
EMPOWER BUSINESS USERS WITH COST-EFFECTIVE TOOLS
Low-code application development allows employees who really understand the business processes to build custom applications without relying on IT department’s time and resources. Low-code platforms offer versatile possibilities for tech-savvy employees who can’t write code but want to develop their workflows by providing solutions for citizen development.
FASTER DEVELOPMENT FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPERS
Low-code tools can be a good fit even for professional developers as they can build applications with low-code in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take by writing them with code. Programmers can further tailor and refine the low-code applications with customized code.
FROM SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO MORE COMPLEX ONES
Low-code platforms offer varying features to access and troubleshoot the underlying code. This allows adding a bit more complex logic and scaling the applications further, but it requires more technical expertise. Although low-code development may seem easy at start, technical expertise will be necessary for more challenging solutions, problem solving and development of critical core processes.
COMBINING LOW-CODE TECHNOLOGY WITH RPA
RPA and Low-code together make a powerful combination. Low-code may suffice for simple apps or tasks, but low-code can be enriched with functionalities suited for RPA, e.g. to scrape data from external sources or mimic user’s data entry into legacy systems like ERP. Complementing low-code front-end with RPA in the back-end achieves much more together.
Sisua Digital as your Low-code Partner
WE BRING YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN PROCESS AUTOMATION TO THE TABLE

ENSURING SAFE CITIZEN DEVELOPMENT WITH TRAINING AND MENTORING
To ensure safe citizen development, it’s vital to support and train the selected personnel. Providing no support for citizen developers over time is unsustainable. We have existing experience in facilitating citizen development programs.
HYBRID TEAMS IN DEVELOPMENT YIELD THE BEST BUSINESS RESULTS
Powerful and secure development is done most effectively together with an experienced partner and hybrid teams that involve both business and IT. We support with challenging solutions, customized extensions and integrations.
WE ASSIST IN SETTING UP LOW-CODE GOVERNANCE MODEL
We can manage our customers’ environments either in their own tenants or help them manage their own. Sisua can create environments that will be managed inside the tenant, e.g. separate environments for specific teams or according to development, test and production environments.
WE ADVISE ON LICENSING AND OFFER COST-EFFECTIVE MAINTENANCE FOR THE SOLUTIONS
Licensing can be very complex and each technology often has its own license. We assist in mapping out which licenses are needed for the desired automation solution or product and we also offer licensing as a service model.
Microsoft Power Platform
There are many Low-code development platform providers and one example of these platforms is Microsoft Power Platform. Sisua Digital is a Microsoft Partner and we offer development, consultation, training and licenses for Microsoft Power Platform tools. You can find our MS Partner Profile here.
ONE CONNECTED PLATFORM EMPOWERING INNOVATION
Power Platform offers tools for app development, business process automation and reporting. The tools include Power Apps, Power BI, Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents.
Power Platform connects to the Microsoft ecosystem: Office 365, Azure, Dynamics 365 and other standalone apps. Development with Power Platform is simple, fast and cost-effective and a particularly compelling solution if the organization is already on the Microsoft stack.
CASE: LOW-CODE APPLICATION AS USER INTERFACE WITH UIPATH AUTOMATION
Sisua built a low-code application that is used together with a back-end UiPath automation. The easy user interface (UI) and automation together streamline a warehouse ordering process.
The low-code platform allowed building the UI very fast. The warehouse orders are managed in the new UI. The UI can be located on a website or as an app on your phone, in this case it was in a website. The end users place orders (user access) that are accepted by managers (manager access). The UI retrieves data from the organization’s ERP. Meanwhile there is a back-end automation, where a UiPath robot puts data into the ERP, for example by using the Manager credentials (manager access).
- A visual and guiding UI
- Simplifies and speeds up the work of end users
- Cost savings for ERP licenses
- Quick to implement
