“There is quite a bit of disinformation about low-code platforms out there,” said Kintone CEO Dave Landa. “Our goal is to educate attendees on what’s real and what’s not, debunking myths about low-code platforms being ungovernable, and more."

Kintone, provider of a low-code application development platform used to quickly connect, organize, and visualize workflows, is a sponsor and exhibitor at Forrester Digital Transformation 2018, being held May 8-9 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. The event brings business leaders and technology innovators together to learn how new digital technologies are transforming business operations and the demands it places on CIOs, CTOs and CDOs as they struggle to define cohesive digital strategies.

Kintone’s CEO Dave Landa will present a Tech Demo on Tuesday, May 8 at 2:30pm CT entitled, “Three Low-Code Application Platform Myths Debunked.” The talk will focus on key misconceptions surrounding low-code platforms, one being that they are ungovernable and just another form of Shadow IT. Landa will discuss how with a solid governance framework, organizations can use low-code platforms to actually alleviate Shadow IT, and bring scores of supportive, productive and agile applications under one umbrella, while still empowering business user champions in different departments to build and iterate on custom solutions, thereby creating transformation without disruption.

Landa will also debunk the myth that low-code platforms are not for mission critical operations and are only suited for tangential, supportive or side operations solutions. He’ll also discuss why fast-growing companies are more often turning to low code platform solutions for mission critical and core business operations to match the speed of business change.

“There is quite a bit of disinformation about low-code platforms out there,” said Dave Landa, CEO, Kintone. “Our goal is to educate attendees on what’s real and what’s not. For example, it’s a common misunderstanding that you still need developers to build more complex solutions and do more complex functions on low-code platforms. This is a myth that we’ll debunk by illustrating how businesses use extremely granular permission controls, rich process management, a flexible notifications engine and collaboration tools that are all configurable; as well non-coding configurable integration hubs such as Microsoft’s Flow and Zapier to design highly powerful, robust and complex solutions, thereby creating digital transformation from the ground up.”
