What Is Low-Code Governance?

Low-code governance is a set of guidelines, policies, and controls that organizations establish to ensure the secure, compliant, and effective use of low-code application development platforms. The goal is to establish a set of guardrails that enable development teams to work with low-code platforms safely and responsibly while minimizing the risk of errors, security breaches, and compliance violations.

One of the key benefits of low-code governance is that it enables enterprises to maintain visibility, insight, and control over every aspect of the application development lifecycle. This is especially important given the increased accessibility of low-code platforms.

By establishing clear rules and processes for low-code development, organizations can ensure that everyone involved in the development process understands their roles and responsibilities and adheres to best practices and get the most out of it.

Mendix’s low-code governance

Mendix gives businesses the building blocks they need to adopt a low-code governance approach by applying governance to the four Ps of digital transformation: people, process, portfolio, and platform.

Person: Your Team

The success of your Mendix team depends on the individuals you select, so governance begins with making sure you can identify, evaluate, and grow talent. It’s crucial to have complete control over who has access to what within your company. Delivering the proper governance framework depends on having the capacity to control who can plan, build, deploy, and manage apps.
