Strong Performer: K2
K2 landed in the Strong Performer category, and continues to accelerate its transition to cloud.
The Seattle-based company has strong credentials when it comes to low-code and business process automation, and boasts more than 3,500 enterprise customers around the world.
"K2's goal is to automate the breadth and scale of enterprise processes -- without limits," Forrester said.
Mobile and web interface design capabilities complement the vendor's strength around data management, reporting and analysis.
But "to keep pace in this market and to deliver on its ambitions," K2 would benefit by more-rapidly implementing capabilities to develop Internet of Things and artificial intelligence apps, Forrester said.
K2's cloud security certifications and low-code commercial model are weaker than those of the vendors in the Leaders category of the Wave. Those gaps look like they'll be addressed soon, making the platform more valuable to customers.
