Low-Code Development Platforms
Low-code development platforms are visual-based, integrated development environments (IDEs) comprising many of the same tools and functionality developers and IT teams use separately to design, code, deploy, and manage an application portfolio. As with any product, low-code application development platforms vary greatly in terms of the developer experience and functionality.
Since Forrester’s early coining of the term “low-code” in their New Development Platforms Emerge For Customer-Facing Applications report, other leading analyst firms have covered low-code vendors under various names and acronyms. MADP and hpaPaas are a couple of examples. And while there are more than 100 vendors now claiming to reside in the “low-code platform” space, not all low-code platforms are created equally.
