PMIWDC Sunrise Valley Luncheon | Digital Transformation with No-Code/Low-Code Revolution


About The Program

86% of IT decision-makers say the biggest challenge to digitally transform their business is too few software developers. In other words, the demand for business applications is significantly outpacing the ability for IT departments to supply resources to meet the business need. That’s where the power of citizen development comes in—with no-code/low-code platforms, anyone can build applications without software expertise, significantly faster, and at a fraction of the cost. But first, you need to learn how to use the tools you have. You need a system in place to oversee the environment, mitigate risk, and unlock the full potential of citizen development. And your citizen developers must understand how to best operate in that system. So whether you’re looking to teach yourself or train your team, PMI has developed a framework to ensure you make the most of this no-code/low-code revolution and securely turn ideas into applications.
