What makes Kianda low-code / no-code (LCNC) platform special? In my interview, Osvaldo Sousa (Osvaldo Sousa : The Future of
No-code) made some big claims. When something sounds too good to be true, it invariably is. I wanted to see this for myself, hence my conversation with Daniel Wertz, the Director of Information Technology, Resco Products.
86 platforms reviewed for vendor rating
Daniels claim to fame in Kianda is that he analysed 86 (!) no-code / low-code (NCLC) providers.
Daniel included some of the top players’ platforms to decide which vendor he would use for workflow and business process automation.
That is how he ended up with the Kianda no-code / low-code application development platform.
Mission to find the best platform
He was on a mission to replace the current cumbersome system that was a pain to use. He was looking to digitise some of their business processes. Examples of these processes include incident reporting, data collection, capital expenditure approvals, purchasing approvals, etc.
Subsequently, he wanted to find a no-code / low-code solution that:
He kissed many frogs. He found that there are a plethora of solutions, with lots of different definitions and interpretations of business process automation. To clarify, there is no standard. As a result, this makes vendor selection very difficult. So, during the search for a viable NCLC platform, Daniel set some key criteria:
2. Form design
3. Multiple columns
4. Table creation
5. Conditional fields
7. Single sign-on
8. Link to outside partners
9. Data storage
10. Public-facing forms
11. Approval process
The basics and piloting Kianda No code Low code platform
The three main reasons for choosing Kianda No code Low code platform
Ultimately it is about unrivalled flexibility, the platform’s ability to scale and grow with the company, the integration and the access to multiple data sources.
Kianda is exceptional in that regard. For instance, many platforms no-code / low-code platforms in the market make several promises but have lost sight of the importance of doing the simple things right.
Indeed, there are lots of NCLC providers, and they are all jumping on the bandwagon. However, the basic functionality of Kianda is what sets above the rest. So, that, combined with the Kianda track record, made Kianda’s no-code / low-code development platform an easy choice for Resco Products.
I have written extensively about citizen development and I have also spoken with many experts. There are quite a few issues that CIOs are worried about (risk, security, chaos). However, in particular, the lack of flexibility due to vendor lock-in, the data access and the integration are huge issues once you start applying NCLC in larger organisations.
Kianda might just have developed the next generation of low-code platform-based, entirely flexible, borderless, fully integratable, and can access multiple data sources!. In short, it can give your systems a new lease of life and allows for full extension of the possibilities. That is, beyond efficiency and workflow. Think digital twinning, think innovation, think digital transformation without limits.
But, you don’t have to take my word for it. Ask Daniel.
