Low-Code Development: Simplifying Application Creation

Bahrain's Innovation Leap: Effortless Low-Code Apps

How is the Kingdom of Bahrain streamlining its systems and software development? The move towards Low-Code platforms is simplifying the world of software development, enabling faster and easier application creation. This trend allows both experienced developers and newcomers to efficiently build applications with minimal need for complex coding.

The Advantages of Low-Code in Modernizing Bahrain's Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA)

In the world of software development, a game-changing shift is happening. Instead of spending extensive time and expertise on building applications from scratch, we now have low-code platforms that make it all easier. These platforms prioritize speed, accessibility, and innovation, reducing the need for manual coding.

Low-code is revolutionizing software development by enabling applications to be built with significantly less manual coding. Unlike traditional coding, which involves scripting every detail, low-code employs a visually driven approach. This streamlines development through drag-and-drop techniques, simplifying complex coding into graphical components.

The Kingdom of Bahrain's Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) has embraced low-code methodologies, accelerating its journey toward digital transformation and the creation of user-friendly eServices for Bahrain's citizens and residents. Here are some notable achievements facilitated by the low-code approach:

BeAware Bahrain App: iGA launched the BeAware Bahrain app, which integrates with government databases and utilizes artificial intelligence and big data analytics to combat the COVID-19 crisis. This app played a crucial role in analyzing data from over 500,000 affected individuals, providing valuable insights to medical professionals.

Diverse Range of eServices: iGA has successfully introduced over 600 eServices across various digital platforms, including the National Portal bahrain.bh, convenient self-service eKiosks, and user-friendly mobile apps. These eServices cover the majority of the sectors including healthcare, education, utilities, transport, finance, and tourism.

Economic Efficiency and Increased Transactions: Transitioning vital government services online resulted in an impressive 82% reduction in operational costs for the iGA. Concurrently, digital transactions increased by 38%. This shift ensures that eServices are delivered swiftly and effectively, aligning with citizens' expectations.

Promoting Innovation: Adopting low-code platforms has fostered creativity within the iGA's developer network. This forward-thinking mindset led to valuable public services like the National Suggestions & Complaints System Tawasul, the National Appointment System (Mawaeed), and many other national systems.

iGA's embrace of low-code platforms exemplifies the transformative potential of modern software development, positioning Bahrain at the forefront of digital transformation progress​​.
