Why use Linx

What is Linx

A general-purpose low-code platform for back-end development

Linx allows rapid development and deployment of back-end applications like APIs, integrations and automations. Developers design and debug solutions in a familiar procedural style using a drag and drop interface with access to 1000s of ready made functions. Solutions are deployed with one click to servers in the cloud or on-premise.

—Typical use cases—
Automation of business processes
Integration of system and data
Build and host APIs

—Unique features—
All-Purpose – Linx is an abstraction of programming itself and not domain, process or tooling specific. This means it can be used for any backend application in any domain with no limitations on connections to other tools and services.

Programming Paradigm – Linx is not constrained by a domain or use-case driven paradigm and is often used in conjunction with other low-code tools to provide the API or integration services that those tools are not designed for. It also allows for the easy implementation of complex functionality.

Developer Experience – Typical use is similar to working in any other traditional IDEs. Users can build, debug and test functionality using common operations for functions, types and services.

Technology agnostic – Linx works with any tool or service (SaaS, systems, apps and legacy), database (SQL, Oracle, OLE DB, ODBC, Postgres Mongo) and files (XML, Json, text, csv, PDF)

Hosting – 1-click deployment to on-premise or cloud. Security, configuration, logging & metrics are standard.

Why use Linx?

Linx follows a ​free-form ​functional programming approach, allowing you the ​tackle the ​deep ​complexities of backend development. Most low code tools target a specific domain or subset of technologies and use a visual process flow to handle custom logic.

Linx and Low Code FAQ

What are the advantages of using low-code?

Low-code benefits.

  • Improved agility. Operating at digital speed means creating the app capabilities users require to function smoothly across multiple devices. …
  • Decreased costs. …
  • Higher productivity. …
  • Better customer experience. …
  • Effective risk management and governance. …
  • Change easily. …
  • Faster transformation.

When should you use low-code?

A low-code platform can improve digital operations and transformation by decreasing time-to-market, bridging gaps in IT skills, and boosting efficiency. It can be used to create and optimize company processes, minimize operational costs, and facilitate transparency across multiple kinds of operations.

Why do we need to know about low codes?

Low-code app development allows development teams and business users to build more applications (of any complexity level) in less time than traditional coding. With a visual development environment, low-code applications can be drawn and configured instead of coded to exponentially speed development and maintenance.

Why low-code is better than no-code?

Low-code platforms are aimed at developers. These platforms require technical knowledge, and allow good coders to work faster. The more powerful the tools to speed up technical development, the better suited it is for coders. No-code platforms on the other hand, target business users.

What problems does low-code solve?

Done right, low-code will handle tasks that eat up so much of developers’ time: DevOps, governance, compliance, backwards compatibility, device compatibility, cloud scalability, data optimization, and security, to name a few. Low-code significantly reduces your overhead and upkeep.

Why do we use OutSystems?

OutSystems allows you to design and manage your business processes and integrate them into your applications using its Business Process Technology methodology. In addition to that, OutSystems provides Architecture Dashboard and TrueChange to check and identify any architecture errors.

How much faster is low-code?

Global low-code development speed compared to traditional development , 29 percent of respondents from a global survey indicated that low-code development is between 40 and 60 percent faster than traditional development.

How do you explain low-code?

What is Low-code? Low-code is a software development approach that requires little to no coding to build applications and processes. Instead of using complex programming languages, you can employ visual interfaces with basic logic and drag-and-drop capabilities in a low code development platform.

Will low-code replace developers?

So no, low-code doesn’t replace developers. In fact, it liberates them from their most dreaded tasks, allowing them to focus on what makes them truly valuable—and what challenges and interests them.

Should I use a low-code platform?

Benefits of Low-code Development Tools:
Also, these platforms help organizations in improving their agility. It reduces the complexity of the application development process. Low code platforms have two other important benefits i.e. high productivity and decreased cost as it develops more applications in lesser time.

What low-code Cannot do?

Many (though not all) low-code development platforms are designed for building applications that will run in a particular cloud-based environment. For example, you can’t take an app created using Google App Maker, Google Cloud’s low-code programming platform, and move it to PowerApps, the Microsoft equivalent.
