Expo highlight Deutsche Telekom: The Public Innovation Lab and the 'LowCode Kitchen'
The Public Innovation Lab (PIL) offers solutions for this. The PIL serves as a demonstrator that shows how end-to-end case management can be integrated into the existing IT landscape of public authorities, without disregarding existing public sector solutions. A centrepiece of this laboratory is the "LowCode Kitchen", a multi-faceted approach to the development of administrative processes. But what exactly is behind this term?
The "LowCode Kitchen" is an application development method that makes it possible to create digital solutions quickly and efficiently using graphical modelling instead of conventional programming work. However, it is not just a place for software development, but rather a creative space in which agile methods and low-code technologies merge. Solutions are not just programmed here, they are "cooked". This means that solutions are designed, tested and optimised in an iterative, user-centred process. LowCode enables accelerated development, as less manual code needs to be written. This opens up the possibility for people without in-depth programming knowledge - so-called "citizen developers" - to actively participate in the design and development of applications.
Rouven-Alexander Plate, Deutsche Telekom's expert in this area, discusses the complexity and value of the "low-code kitchen" within the PIL in his latest blog post https://public.telekom.de/blog/pil-low-code-kueche. He highlights how this approach not only increases the speed and efficiency of digitalisation, but also creates a more inclusive and participative environment.
For all those who would like to delve deeper into the topic of "LowCode Kitchen" and understand the fascination behind it, we cordially invite you to the Smart Country Convention to talk directly to experts at the Deutsche Telekom stand and experience the "LowCode Kitchen" in action.
You can also attend Rouven-Alexander Plate's workshop at the convention, where he will be discussing the hurdles of federalism at municipal level and the possibilities of PIL and LowCode.
