IT Leading the Charge
With the critical responsibility of leading digital transformation efforts across the organization, offloading non-priority tasks is a relevant topic for IT.
While some IT leaders fear that dispersing development capabilities will lead to a governance and security nightmare, agile low-code development platforms like Quickbase allow IT to maintain robust administrative controls on citizen development in addition to a comprehensive security and regulatory compliance program that meets several industry standards.
This presents an opportunity to shift responsibility away from the IT department and into the hands of business users so that they can create solutions for the processes they are closest to.
Citizen development can certainly turn into “shadow IT,” but when done properly with the right governance in place, it elevates IT’s perspective. Freed from the demands of request backlogs, IT leaders can focus on what they do best: optimizing the company’s use of technology to stay agile and competitive while also creating controls to protect from internal and worldwide security threats. This allows companies to maintain business operations while simultaneously protecting people, data, and customers.
Accelerating Agile Transformation
As businesses search for a way to manage digital transformation without exceeding IT’s bandwidth, agile low-code development platforms like Quickbase emerge as a comprehensive and practical solution.
These low-code platforms enable citizen development—which is the organizational practice of business professionals who are not trained in a technological discipline, to build, deploy, and keep improving applications in a safe and controlled manner that is governed by an organization’s IT department.
The dynamics of today’s fast-paced global marketplace and the constant evolution of technology require that companies break out of their traditional silos and rethink how they do business within their business. As forward-thinking IT leaders have learned, loosening the technological reins benefits them in many ways.
