Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between an open and closed platform?
An open application development platform provides accessible APIs and enables developers to connect with third-party systems. All open-source platforms are considered open, but not all open platforms are open-source.
A closed platform can be customized, but only by developers with proprietary knowledge and capabilities. Closed platforms have more restrictions, including difficulty integrating with third-party tools.
How can the extensibility of a platform benefit a business?
Open and extensible application development platforms are beneficial for every enterprise. By extending a low-code platform to fit business and development needs, enterprises are able to adapt and respond swiftly to disruptions and changing requirements. Developers are empowered to build new functionalities, extend capabilities, and integrate with third-party tools, opening up a limitless world of possibilities for your organization.
