Zoho Creator

Due to the rise of digital workforce, each user, from an IT leader to a line-of-business (LOB) executive needs modern applications designed around their needs.

According to data capture (Saavedra, 2022), in 2019 companies were spending more than $2 trillion (40 % of their technology investment), on digital transformation initiatives. That number may keep increasing in the coming years, as businesses in every sector realize that it would be hard to maintain their market share without the digital side.

Implementation cost is given by the complexity and experience required to fulfill the assigned tasks. In this context, low-code platforms play a crucial role for companies, since less knowledge is needed to accomplish the planned development, in less time, and with greater ease of use.

Zoho Creator is a low-code platform that reduces the 90% of the complexities in the lifecycle of an app development, allowing you to focus on features, business value and the customer, not the code.

Architecture of your dedicated and less complex Its.

Imaging going to a restaurant, and that all the dishes offered are quite expensive and overloaded with food, so you would have to pay a high price for something you may probably not be able to completely eat, or enjoy. This homology applies to ITs in-today’s companies’ management.

Nowadays, applications within this field are even more and more complex, having a lot of elements that may not fit your business or that you will not use; so that you will have a larger package than what you need.

Now, suppose you are in a restaurant where you can plate your dish at your will with a large number of ingredients available, and with a fast and high-quality preparation. Well, this is similar to what Zoho Creator is all about: getting a dedicated implementation with the specific features of your business and taste. Eliminate the superfluous elements and remain only with the necessary features, improving the system’s ease of use and decreasing the price and development time.
