With regulations like GDPR and CCPA becoming more common, technology companies have to be more careful about the vendors they use.
One of the education technology companies I worked with ran into this problem when we tried to expand into Europe. Schools in Germany do not allow student data to be stored in the United States [due to privacy concerns, and some of the low-code tools we used didn’t offer international data tenancy options. Limitations like this can seriously impact your business, so they shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Some low-code tools allow you to self-host their software as a way around this. “A lot of times, you need really complex audits to be able to send your data to a third-party,” Tanay Pant of [n8nwhich uses a [fair-code license—told me. “Being able to self-host is definitely a big plus for our users.”
