Not All Low-Code Vendors Are The Same! What’s the Difference?

For decades, enterprises had two options when it came to software development. Either buy a software/system from a third-party vendor or build a new software/system with its own developers. Though the latter option was a close fit to the business needs, it was often a long and expensive wait. The easier option was to purchase from external vendors. 

In recent years, Low-Code App Development has transformed businesses worldwide. Low-Code Solutions provide a close fit to the business needs, cost less than traditional in-house development, and can be implemented quickly. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the use of low code in various departments for various purposes across multiple industries. 

Despite the increasing popularity of low code, businesses need to understand that not all low-code providers deliver the same type of development. There are limitations when it comes to capabilities, scope, scalability, customization, and so on. Learning the difference helps organizations choose the ideal low-code vendor or solution to meet the business requirements. Let’s consider a few aspects and compare how Neutrinos fares better than other vendors in that regard.

1. Vendor Lock-In

The most common challenge with low-code apps is vendor lock-in. Most solutions work only when the business is utilizing the vendor’s platform. Some vendors may generate convoluted code where it is impossible to run the app outside the vendor’s platform. Some vendors do not allow the business to make any changes to the solution once they stop using the vendor’s tool. It means that organizations get locked into the vendor, and moving out or adopting different solutions means more costs.

How Neutrinos Differs

Neutrinos Low-Code Platform uses Open-Source Architecture that prevents lock-in. Users can run the apps they create on the Neutrinos Platform on various platforms. They also can customize the apps as per their needs. 

2. Pricing

Many vendors would lure in new customers with low prices but later increase the price whenever and wherever possible. Due to the lock-in, they can control the price, and it may prove to be expensive when users expect to deploy their solution short-term or evolve with advanced options as years pass. 

How Neutrinos Differs

Neutrinos offers different annual pricing options for using its low-code platform to build apps. Since there is no lock-in, enterprises can choose to renew the subscriptions each year or not based on their requirements. They can always upgrade as per their needs. The pricing options are flexible to accommodate all types of businesses. 

3. Proprietary Code

Many vendors use proprietary code for their software and tools, which means that only they can own it and enforce many restrictions regarding usage, modification, and distribution. The pre-defined conditions of proprietary software make it not flexible for use. 

How Neutrinos Differs

Neutrinos offers open-source coding where the source code is visible and available to all to access and make changes. Business users or developers can work on the open-source code to personalize apps for specific projects or purposes. 

4. Integration

Another common challenge is integration capabilities. Most vendors do not provide integration capabilities to all existing apps, systems, or software. When businesses purchase such low-code solutions, connecting to back-end systems is a hassle. It proves to be expensive in the long run to keep buying multiple solutions to integrate with all systems. 

How Neutrinos Differs

The Neutrinos Platform offers advanced integration capabilities with 400+ in-built connectors and APIs, making it easy to integrate into all existing systems and apps. The Back-End for Front-End Pattern makes it easy to connect with back-end systems. Gartner named Neutrinos in its 2021 Magic Quadrant for Multi-Experience Development Platforms due to its superior integration capabilities. 

5. Customization

Most vendors offer “Off-the-Shelf” or “Out-of-the-Box” low-code tools that are specific solutions for use cases. The capabilities of these solutions are limited to the use case and cannot be extended or customized. If any business requires more low-code capabilities, they need to purchase more solutions to fit their needs.

How Neutrinos Differs

Neutrinos provides a low-code platform for businesses to custom build mobile, web, and IoT applications. End-users can leverage the advanced capabilities of the platform to design and develop apps that suit their business requirements and deploy them across multiple platforms and channels. With open-source coding and architecture, they can modify the created apps to add more functionalities to make them more efficient. 

6. Marketplace

Since many vendors provide specific solutions, users do not have the flexibility to choose components or templates for any type of customization. They need to go ahead with whatever the vendor provides. 

How Neutrinos Differs

Neutrinos Marketplace houses a wide range of reusable components, pre-built templates, in-built connectors, and more. Whatever tools a user needs to build a custom app, it is available in the Marketplace. Business users can also create their personalized Marketplace to easily access the apps and templates that they built. 

7. Security

Data security is a paramount concern for all businesses. Though all low-code vendors need to secure data, not everyone does it. Leakage of sensitive and confidential data can cost enterprises lots of money and at times, even the business.  

How Neutrinos Differs

The Neutrinos Platform is a highly secure platform that ensures data security for all customers. Neutrinos is ISO/IEC 27001 certified for data security assurance. All information input into the platform is secure and protected from any accidental leaks or errors. 

Neutrinos – Highly Advanced Low-Code Platform

While there are multiple challenges and limitations in low-code usage, Neutrinos aims to address and overcome all such limitations by utilizing new-age technologies and related capabilities. The Neutrinos Low-Code Platform is constantly evolving to suit all types of business needs and budgets. Neutrinos also makes it easy for its customers to custom-build and modify applications built on the platform. It provides seamless integration and connectivity to all existing systems.
