Riding The Low-Code Wave

Application development is challenging, but solution providers increasingly find themselves in scenarios where a successful engagement depends on the ability to deliver custom functionality.

While hiring software engineers isn't realistic for many in the channel, solution providers can now turn to several innovative vendors that deliver platforms enabling them to build apps with limited coding skills.

These low-code platforms, often delivered as cloud services, put in the hands of partners visual, declarative development tools in lieu of programming interfaces.

The latest Forrester Wave, based on a survey conducted by Forrester Research between July and August of 41 application development and delivery professionals, rates several of those low-code platforms.

In the Leaders category were Appian, Kony, Mendix, OutSystems and Salesforce. Those companies offer their customers the "broadest and deepest platforms," said Forrester.

K2 and ServiceNow came in as "Strong Performers," while AgilePoint and Bizagi differentiated themselves well enough to show up in the Contenders category.
