If that low-code platform is full-featured, generating, compiling and deploying the necessary code is automatic. (more…)

They join OutSystems and other vendors (see Oracle earlier in 2016) who recognize that IT teams are struggling with huge backlogs and resource challenges and need a faster, better way to deliver apps.
As a result, the low-code market is booming, and ZDNet predicts it will be a $10 billion industry by 2019. But let’s not celebrate too quickly. (more…)
