The Low-Code Method by Scopeland
Configuration instead of programming. 100% code generation

The term ‘SCOPELAND method’ represents a modern low-code approach to developing sophisticated database applications, either completely or largely without any manual programming. This approach offers substantial cost advantages, short project durations, and, above all, a hitherto unprecedented degree of flexibility of the software when it comes to introducing all types of changes at all levels. This, in turn, does not only drastically reduce software maintenance costs, but also enables a high degree of iterative prototyping and agile software development that allow the application to be optimally adapted to the actual needs of the respective end users and ensures that each project can be completed successfully and on time.

Unlike in programming environments (pictured on the left), ready-made standard software modules are used exclusively instead of individual program code. These software modules (pictured on the right) are controlled by intelligent metadata in such a way that the program's behavior from the user's point of view is almost identical to that of a handwritten application. The differences do not lie in the functionality but in the considerable cost advantages, improved software quality and, in particular, the distinctively agile development process – with all of the related benefits.

The basis is provided by a declarative development environment that is used to interactively configure the application to be developed in accordance with a patented procedure. Code generators contained in the product generate program code in the development environment for the respective target environment from the resulting ‘metadatabase’, which contains and declaratively describes all the application logic and user interface. The entire application exists as source code and is compiled, made available, and operated in the usual manner in the respective environment.

Although it is possible to extend and further develop the generated code manually using other tools such as Eclipse or Visual Studio, we do not recommend this as the advantage of automatic code generation following changes would be lost. Any necessary functional enhancements or other special requirements are therefore not manually incorporated into the generated program code but are encapsulated, embedded in the system as small program modules, and integrated in the course of the generation process. This makes it possible to achieve a certain degree of functional extensibility, without impairing a new generation after a change of requirements.

Low-Code presentation at Digital Office Conference 2018

At Digital Office Conference 2018, which took place as part of Bitkom's Smart Country Convention, Karsten Noack gave a lecture on "Low-Code Technology as the Key to Digital Transformation in the Specialist Areas of Large Companies and Administrative Institutions". He explained how software development can work without programming, what the "IT of the Two Speeds" is all about, and how Low-Code projects work.

Scopeland project presented in survey by Bitkom and McKinsey

On 21 November 2018, a joint survey by Bitkom and McKinsey on "Smart Government - How public administration can use data intelligently" was presented at Smart Country Convention. Ten international success stories were selected for the survey, which analysed, among other things, how citizens and public authorities can reduce the cost of administrative services by more than half. The fisheries IT project we implemented for the Federal Agency for Agriculture and Food was the only project from Germany to be selected.
