Building a custom web application is the only way to design a unique app that suits your specific business needs. There are no defined regulations to follow, so your application and process flow are precisely how you want them. Your creativity is your only limiting factor.

We have focused our recent articles on No-Code and Low-Code platform options. No-code is typically used to create apps that handle simple functions, while at the same time, Low-code is a little more robust in allowing developers to develop stronger solutions without writing much code. The differences increase when building an application with a half-custom 50/50 solution. This type of development uses highly evolved integrations, such as SharePoint, ServiceNow, and SalesForce, and are perfect examples of platforms where building extensive custom happens within these applications.
As explained in our recent article, Building Apps Using No-code, the No-Code platform option is typically used to create apps that handle simple functions. So, what are the key differences between No-code and Low-code? To start with, Low-code is a little more robust and allows developers to create stronger solutions without writing a lot of code.

The cyberwar in Ukraine has given attention to what we all know instinctively – cybercriminals are getting more innovative, more organized, and more resourceful.
