Why Read This Report

Business leaders demand more solutions to win, serve, and retain customers; adopting a low-code application platform is often the response. The market for these platforms is growing fast, but selecting a platform that actually delivers without creating a 4GL-like orphan in the software portfolio isn't easy. Forty-two different suppliers dot the vendor landscape, each with distinct strengths, openness, and prospects for the future. Technology management and enterprise architecture (EA) professionals should read this report to understand the segments in the emerging low-code platform market and reduce the risk of making a selection they later regret.
