The Claris platform: Your low-code development solution.

What is low code?

A low-code development platform takes a visual approach to build an app. Instead of writing code line by line, you can use an intuitive point-and-click, or drag-and-drop approach to building an app.

Regardless of programming experience, low-code development allows for the creation of fast, easy, and customized apps to solve unique business problems. Low-code development provides a foundation that anyone can learn and build upon to unlimited levels of functionality and complexity.

  • Creating a custom app quickly.
  • Automating manual tasks.
  • Transforming business processes.
  • Integrating easily with other apps.

Why low code?

  • Low-code tools enable the subject matter expert (SME) closest to the challenge to devise the solution.

  • According to Gartner, more than half of enterprises will adopt low-code application platforms as part of their core digital strategy.

Who can use low code?

If you can build a spreadsheet, you can build a low-code application. A low-code platform allows users of various levels of coding experience to address their issues directly. And with a cloud-enabled platform, users can synchronize and release their work across a remote and distributed workforce.

Low code vs. no code

The terms ‘low code’ and ‘no code’ are often grouped together, but in reality, they describe two different concepts.

No code

Platforms are developed specifically for people who have zero coding experience.


Low code

Platforms accommodate users of all levels. Experienced developers can use a low-code solution to quickly set base functionality, then add complexity.

Features of low-code platforms.

Visual modeling

The key difference between low-code and traditional application development is visual modeling. Building an app using a low-code platform is more like creating a flowchart than typing in lines of code in a specific language. Low code includes familiar tools like drag-and-drop and point-and-click, which makes it easy and intuitive for a variety of users.

Instant deployment

You can deploy low-code applications to a remote or distributed workforce quickly and easily – across a cloud or an on-premise network. Complete your application fast, and put it into production for everyone to use even faster.

Standardized rules

Instead of reinventing the wheel with every new application, a low-code platform allows an organization to create standardized rules that apply to every new application. This eliminates the need to write custom coding for universal specifications and makes it easier to modify applications in the future.

Application management

A low-code platform can be set to align various teams across a common platform. This improves transparency across the organization, allowing for better management of applications both during development and after deployment.
