LOW-CODE/NO CODE VS. CLI
Low-Code/No Code tooling will find its place in the DevOps professional's toolbelt alongside CLI-based tooling. The question isn't which one is better — it's which tool is the right tool for a particular task. Low-Code/No-Code helps DevOps professionals visualize IAC logic, especially when workflows are complex. CLI is best for quick action when the professional is adept at the CLI commands they require.
LOW-CODE WORKFLOW AUTOMATION
In 2023, low-code workflow automation using internal services will become just as crucial to businesses as workflow automation using SaaS APIs. Additionally, low-code data visualizations across ad hoc internal, partner, government, and public APIs will expand in usage by data engineers and scientists.

CONTINUOUS AUTOMATION AND DEPLOYMENT
Low- and no-code tools with CI pipelines will be the future to accomplish "continuous automation and deployment."

DEMOCRATIZATION OF DATA
No-code and low-code platforms like AirTable have been instrumental in democratizing company data. However, while they provide highly intuitive facades for non-technical business users, their top-down architecture is extremely limiting or inaccessible to engineers. While quickly adoptable, these band-aide services have an unconsidered backend that is unable to scale, and therefore needs to be replaced over time. In the coming years, modern NC/LC solutions will follow a bottom-up approach that lays a foundational data layer comprised of powerful developer tools, performant APIs, tailored data stores, and an unopinionated tech stack. True data democratization can't be achieved without equally enabling both non-technical and highly technical users.

LOW-CODE FACILITATES THE API ECONOMY
We are witnessing the rise of apps and software solutions to respond to the complexities of our hyperconnected world. However, businesses can't — and shouldn't — make everything low-code all at once. Patchwork procedures are creating silos, and in 2023, businesses will embrace a hybrid approach where both high and low-code can coexist — made possible by the power of APIs. We'll see an emergence of APIs that allow businesses to have low-code components embedded in custom-coded applications. More apps will become hybrid low-code/high code, like low-code-built onboarding and service journeys that run seamlessly inside websites built with traditional coding tools. 2023 will be the year when low-code and high code coexist in user experiences, and more businesses will stitch together workflow applications for connected, complete experiences.

LOW-CODE KILLS RPA
RPA market growth is flattening as people realize its limitations. With the need for enterprise-wide automation — transformational automation — more critical now than ever before, enterprises need better solutions. Dubbed initially as an all-in-one solution for automating critical parts of the organization, RPA is starting to show its true colors. RPA is just the start of streamlining operations and automating those tedious manual tasks that are prone to errors and prevent employees from doing more valuable work. It's a Band-Aid that patches a broken process — but low-code is the strategic vision for optimizing and transforming critical business processes that drive hyper-automation and innovation across the enterprise ecosystem. 2023 will bring the wake-up call that organizations must stop ignoring a core principle of enterprise strategy: purpose-built, enterprise-grade tools that always optimize and automate.

IAC REPLACED BY LOW-CODE/NO-CODE
Infrastructure-as-code will eventually be replaced by Low-code/no-code technology. Infrastructure-as-code (IaC) led to a shift in the way software engineers and Ops think about the provisioning and maintenance of infrastructure. While IaC has gained wider adoption among DevOps teams, the complexities of data center configuration and management continue to create problems. IaC is rapidly becoming a last-decade technique and new emerging technologies such as Low-code/no-code can better solve and streamline many of the issues IaC presents.

LOW-CODE/NO-CODE STRESSES NETWORKING
The continued pursuit of low- and no-code applications will put further stress on a networking industry struggling to keep up. When teams can build their own applications without going through centralized development organizations, artisan efforts will quickly expose operational slowness. When the answer to the slow connectivity of low-code applications is to file a helpdesk ticket and wait a few weeks until the next change window, there will be natural tension in the system. This will leave companies looking to speed up operations or face existential questions about why their legacy decisions have gotten them here.

LOW-CODE/NO-CODE POSES SECURITY RISK
Low-code/no-code will continue to succeed industry wide but only as long as security is in place and booming. While low-code and no-code helps the labor shortage, allowing more developers to write code with less or limited experience, it also puts companies at significant risk of security breaches. So while it is needed and has benefits, companies will need to pay close attention to how they use low-code/no-code within their organizations.
CEO and Co-Founder, Nylas
LOW-CODE/NO-CODE IS UNSUSTAINABLE
Low-code/no-code applications are going to be increasingly important as the developer pool becomes flooded with younger, less-experienced developers. However, these systems are unsustainable. Complexity continues to grow over time along with metadata contingencies. Senior developers will need to oversee operations while leveraging low-code/no-code software to push out new services while untangling this increasing complexity.
