Federal Agencies Use ‘Low Code’ Processes to Accelerate App Development

1 min read

Federal information technology leaders said their agencies are using “low code” software development processes to accelerate the development and updates of client-facing applications, FCW reported Thursday. Low-code methods provide developers with configuration capabilities and graphic interfaces to speed up app development.

Ed Dowgiallo, principal solutions architect at the Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration, said Thursday at ATARC’s conference that FTA used low-code processes with Appian to redesign its case management platforms.

Mia Jordan, chief information officer for rural development at the Department of Agriculture, said a cloud-based app developed by Salesforce for USDA using low-code methods has reduced the application and approval process for the ReConnect rural broadband loan program to nearly four months.
