  • Building with a low-code tool like Appsmith solves these challenges by giving you a drag-and-drop UI builder, native integrations with multiple datasources as well as ready connections using REST APIs or GraphQL, built-in features for user authentication and authorization, and much more.

  • Your GUI must be user-friendly and easy to navigate for various teams to view, fetch, and analyse the data using different data visualizations quickly. You will also need database management, data integration as well as user interface design expertise to build it from scratch. All of this translates to the need for significant engineering and design bandwidth.

  • Ensuring your data is protected from unauthorized access means you need to implement data security and privacy measures well.

  • Collecting and managing large data sets, and ensuring data accuracy and consistency can be complex and time-consuming.

  • You will need to maintain and update your GUI over time to accommodate evolving organizational needs as well as to address any bugs or security vulnerabilities.
