Low-Code Vs Pro-Code ServiceNow!


Welcome to this new article of ServiceNow Spectacular.

This blog is dedicated to the basics of ServiceNow Low-Code & Pro-Code environment. We learn about the meaning, functions and most important the differences between these two development techniques used in ServiceNow.

What is ServiceNow Low Code development?

  • ServiceNow low-code development is the process where development is done using development tools and with minimum coding.
  • You do not need to know any coding language to create an application or workflow here.
  • In ServiceNow’s low-code environment, users can leverage a range of visual tools, such as the App Creator, Flow Designer, and Workflow Editor, to design and configure applications and workflows.
  • It enables business owners, analysts, and anyone else to understand the business requirements and develop solutions as soon as possible.

These tools of ServiceNow provide user-friendly, minimal coding, allowing users to focus on the application’s logic and functionality rather than writing extensive code.

What is ServiceNow Pro-Code development?

  • It is a traditional development approach which is already in industry from a long time.
  • It needs specialized personal such as application developers who can understand functional requirement and transform it in technical code.
  • It involves writing highly customized applications , workflows & integration setup.
  • The developer can use development framework, APIs and follow best practices for good results.
  • In pro-code development, developers have full command over the application development process and can use ServiceNow’s APIs, libraries, and tools for better performance and understandings.
  • Languages such as JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and Glide APIs to implement functionalities, business logic, and customizations.

Low-Code Vs Pro-Code

Low-Code DevelopmentPro-Code Development
It is an approach that is based on visual development tools & pre-built components to make applications with no/minimum code.It is an Old/Traditional development approach to writing code from scratch to create custom applications.
It needs less coding knowledge & is accessible to citizen developers /business users with basic programming knowledge.Needs advanced programming skills & knowledge of ServiceNow development frameworks and APIs.
Very fast application development because of visual development tools, pre-built components, and drag/drop functionality.It usually a longer process, as coding is done from scratch, and developers has to handle all aspects of the application and development.
Supports limited flexibility as it depends on pre-built components and visual development tools, which limits the customization at a particular level.Offers high flexibility as developers have full control over the application and can tailor it to specific requirements.
Easier maintenance and updates as low-code applications are built using pre-built components that are updated by ServiceNow.Maintenance and updates require more effort as developers need to handle all aspects of the application, including updates to underlying frameworks and libraries.
Ideal for simple to moderately complex applications or workflows with standard requirements.Suitable for highly complex applications or workflows that require custom integrations, complex business logic, or specific functionality.
It is relatively shorter learning curve as it requires minimal coding knowledge and leverages visual development tools.It is steeper learning curve as it involves mastering programming languages, ServiceNow development frameworks, and APIs.
Well-suited for citizen developers, business process automation, simple IT service management, and quick prototyping.It is best suited for professional developers, complex custom application development, integration projects, and advanced system configurations.
