According to Gartner’s definition, “A low-code application platform (LCAP) is used to rapidly develop and deploy custom applications by abstracting and minimizing hand coding. At a minimum, an LCAP must include low-code capabilities (such as a model-driven or graphical programming approach with scripting) to develop a complete application consisting of user interfaces, business logic, workflow and data services.”

This year’s report underscores the recent rapid growth of low-code and no-code as a mode of software development. Gartner’s strategic planning assumption for LCAP is that “by 2025, 70% of new applications developed by enterprises will use low-code or no-code technologies, up from less than 25% in 2020.” The report recognized that “more organizations are adopting and using LCAPs — a trend that has been further accelerated by COVID-19 disruptions. Even conservative organizations that have previously resisted modernization and automation are using LCAPs to move to the cloud, address skills and resource shortages, and achieve faster time to deployment.”

These are two strong suits of the Kintone platform that have contributed to a significant uptick in customer demand.”
