Jacek Chmiel provides a reality check on citizen development, pointing out that rather than digital natives, it’s digital-era employees who have the most to gain from digital transformation technology, often starting with no code and moving into the low-code environment of their choice. Chmiel suggests two solutions to the issue of poor flexibility in these platforms: having deep knowledge of the platform and/or augmenting with hard-core code. He also tackles the issues of IT security and vendor lock-in and then looks at the future of low-code.
