What do business analysts have to do with innovation?
Domain experts/ business analysts are the closest to the requirements, they have the best understanding of the business problem and that leads to identifying the goals and objectives. They have enough accumulated knowledge of all existing pain points and solutions in their respective domain and that gives them the edge to create innovative solutions to achieve these goals and objectives. By leveraging any no-code tool they can design generalized to highly custom app solutions and share them immediately with their network. In this new landscape of no-coding, the entire focus can be on the end results of the app while everything else is getting taken care off by the platform the app is built on.
Digital transformation is changing the way businesses operate and run.
It has already been established that no-code and low code app development platforms enable the IT and non-IT write enterprise-grade mobile apps. They have been helping businesses and citizen developers roll out apps quickly while cutting costs, and ensuring that apps are reusable and helpful for a large number of users.
With the IT departments struggling to keep pace with the demands of the business line, oftentimes businesses have to sideline of projects simply because their IT department lacks the time or resources or they don’t have an IT department, to begin with. This is where citizen developers can slide in.
A hidden opportunity lies here for Business Analysts, Domain Experts and Small B2B Start-ups and one must jump to grab the opportunity while it is still ripe.
Big isn’t always better
Consider this scenario: There is a network of over 100 distributors in the telecommunication space. One of them (their domain expert) builds an app at 10x the speed of traditional app development. An app that fits the unique functions all these distributors go through. Most of them lack an IT team or don’t have sufficient time or resources or funds. They see a cost-effective solution offered to them that can impact their performance by tenfolds. The domain expert leverages a no-code platform to create one app and establishes a successful collaboration.
Experts with control over their domain can quickly build solutions and painlessly make changes to enhance the performance of the app. It is the prime time to move up the business ladder, with their creative solutions and ideas and bringing them to life through model-driven and data-driven no-code platforms. It will lead them to create an empire of their own, with technologies bringing the business-user closest to the solution development process.
