Interoperability of low-code platforms

Updated: May 31, 2023

The interoperability of low-code platforms can vary depending on the vendor and the platform itself. In some cases, low-code platforms can integrate with other systems and tools through APIs and standard protocols that allow, without restriction, for the exchange of data and functionality with other systems.

Some low-code platforms however offer a limited set of tools and integration capabilities, and which only work within the platform itself. This could result in a 'vendor lock-in', a scenario in which it becomes difficult to port the solution to another platform or to integrate it with other systems.

To avoid these types of constraints, it is important to look for low-code platforms that support open standards and APIs so that data and functionality can be exchanged with other systems. In addition, it is important to consider whether the platform offers the flexibility to transfer the solution to another platform, if needed, and whether there is an exit strategy in case the vendor no longer offers its product or service.

In selecting a low-code platform, it is thus important to consider the interoperability of the platform and to avoid getting stuck with a specific vendor. This allows your organisation to avail of the opportunities of low-code, while maintainting the necessary level of flexibility and agility.
