Track: Digital Transition
Abstract: In their attempt to innovate, companies need to develop custom software products that in most cases need to be co-created with end-users. The use of a low-code platform can facilitate this process by allowing requirements gathering based on the real interactive mockups of the proposed solution that have been designed by non-tech users through the low-code platform. Through this co-creation phase, end-users can navigate on the real mockups and provide valuable feedback. After this co-creation/crowdsourcing phase with stakeholders, the owners of the platform (non-tech users) can easily transform the mockups to software code ready to be deployed. Living labs can consider the use of low-code tools to enhance their portfolio of services.
