Are low-code/no-code solutions just a ticking time bomb for future CIOs?

All this low code stuff that's trying to make it easy for you—two years from now the mess that that's going to leave is going to get every CIO just going, "How the hell do I fix this?"

I feel like we're going backwards again. I remember the old days where, when you're at a startup company, the engineers build up the infrastructure, there's no IT. They build all these weird tools, but then they're so dependent on these things that it gets stuck with a company, and it's a disaster for the next 5-6 years. So now this is happening again with all these no-code, low-code applications, they're just popping them out there, creating them, creating RPA scripts, everything that's breaking everything. So I just see it going backwards.

How portable is solutions built with low code? That would be my biggest concern. What if, Appian or another low code provider goes out of business? How easily can we take what we built to another provider?

Based on all the things setup in SharePoint by the business that became ownerless, but IT’s problem to support..... I’d guess it’s a future nightmare on the way.....

It depends if it’s COTS they can be nightmares if you don’t have the right contract mechanisms in place for IT security and compliance requirements.

Low-code imo have less probability of going out of market then many of the frameworks we use today for development. Technology will always change, in the last 30 years, it changed a lot and will continue to be that way. Low-code platforms, and being using Outsystems for the last 4 years are a powerfull tool to speed up the development and actually deal with technical debt in a more structured way. Of course theres a trade-off, but that exists with everything.
