“We believe this report validates our vision of the future of agile application development for enterprises, which enables everyone, business users and coders alike, to quickly and inexpensively build simple to very sophisticated solutions using no-code or low-code tools," said CEO Dave Landa.

Kintone, provider of a low-code application development platform and toolkit to quickly connect, organize, manage workflows, and visualize data, was among a select group of companies that leading independent research firm Forrester invited to participate in its report, The Forrester New Wave™: Low-Code Platforms For Business Developers, Q4 2017. In this evaluation, which was published on October 23, Kintone was cited as a Challenger.

The report also credits Kintone for its straightforward data-action process, potential for shared data and being best for automating long-tail operation processes and for being one of two vendors that offer strong options for niches.

“We’re humbled to be one of the 13 vendors selected for this in-depth evaluation,” said Kintone CEO Dave Landa. “We believe this report validates our vision of the future of agile application development for enterprises, which enables everyone, business users and coders alike, to quickly and inexpensively build simple to very sophisticated solutions using no-code or low-code tools that seamlessly integrate workflow needs, team collaboration and third-party data sources.”

For decades, businesspeople have had to choose between either trying to fit squares into round holes with off-the-shelf point solutions, using inefficient and limited spreadsheets or rigid desktop databases, or contracting to build expensive and time-consuming hand-coded software solutions that lack agility and change-ability.

"Low-code development platforms for business developers offer a managed and more productive environment for this inevitable software-delivery activity,” according to the report, "with tools designed specifically for business experts rather than professional software developers.”
