The future belongs to the digitally nimble
To achieve and sustain competitive advantage requires continuous innovation. That needs to be driven top-down, middle-out and bottom-up.
IT queues undermine experimentation
But traditional IT practices inhibit innovation as development is too slow and developer skills, (particularly the latest digital app-dev skills), are in short supply. The inevitable result is a lengthening IT queue, with prioritisation that safeguards against wasting precious resources. Hardly a recipe for agile innovation!
Bi-modal IT practices to the rescue?
Gartner proposes a Bi-modal IT approach to try to ensure digital experiments get the investment and resources that they need, even though requirements and objectives are typically poorly understood.
This “Mode-2” development has to embrace uncertainty, with a lean startup mentality. Start with a minimum viable product. Work fast. Work iteratively. Work hand-in-hand with the customers or users that can validate the hypothesis. And when experiments fail, be prepared to throw it away, or “pivot” as its flatteringly called.
Low-code – the perfect fit for Mode-2
This new development culture cannot flourish without new tools. And Low-code platforms are perfect to support the rapid development of MVPs, that can be iteratively developed and scaled into production.
