I think it depends on the contexts of the systems these sort of no-code environments are meant to replace. A lot of companies with in-house software have had the web applications designed in a way that's very specific and integrated into business requirements, and a lot of the no-code alternatives simply don't have support for a lot of the back-end logistics.

I work for a company specialising in fuel cards, and the in-house software we develop (a web application) is enormous, but specifically we integrate with APIs for different fuel card providers (Shell, BP, etc.) which are enormously complex and simply couldn't be accomplished with a no-code system. Our business looked at replacing our software with several generic CRM packages, but each time they realised that the compatibility and complexity just wasn't there.

Unless these no-code environments can provide hugely customisable and complex operations, I don't think there'll be much cause for concern for developers in companies with established systems. It's probably cheaper to maintain the existing systems and have developers augment them than to purchase a whole new system, build it from the ground-up and then have new systems developed which implement the missing features, as well as training staff on how to use and build the no-code platform.
