Digitalisation and Industry 4.0 is changing the landscape of traditional industries and how they operate. Regulation, sustainability and staff shortages are challenging companies to alter their behaviour and business processes. It is now becoming essential for small to medium size enterprises (SMEs) to adapt to this change. This paper showcases how digitalisation can help with these new requirements by examining a case study with specific interest in collecting, monitoring and analysing data. The application was created for an SME registered in Ireland, and it will be used to showcase the difference between normal coding and low code development in the creation of these apps. This comparison is important because low code development will become essential for organisations in order to create novel IT-based approaches that will be used for the digital transformation of their specific business. Along with describing and reflecting on this process, we will also explain how this application is linked with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how companies can integrate these goals in their business and IT choices.
