Low-code Application Development

Updated on December 6, 2021
"whats new in platform"

Application Development tools help you create high-quality, efficient, and flexible applications. Key enhancements in this release of Pega Platform™ focus on expanding App Studio functionality to further support the Pega Express™ Delivery Approach, improve application performance, and expand a variety of low-code tools to meet more needs of citizen developers. For example, you can now create decision tables directly in App Studio to calculate field values automatically at run time, so that your application can provide the best-tailored solutions in dynamically changing scenarios. For example, an application can select the most appropriate car insurance offer based on a driver's experience and car condition. 

To promote low-code solutions and empower citizen developers, you can create configurations whose values users can modify at run time to provide flexible application behavior. In a sample scenario with a banking application, an application administrator can adjust limits for a bank account at run time, simply by providing a new value, without logging in to any configuration portal, as in the following example:

Configuration sets run-time experience
Configuration sets at run time

Performance enhancements include a limit for the Tracer event file, which prevents excessive consumption of your disk space, and consequently helps you avoid performance issues. You can also use Tracer to diagnose and debug your Cosmos React UI applications, so that you can deliver bug-free applications that make use of the latest Pega Platform solutions. 

Application Development tools include the following enhancements:
