Business class at USC uses Snappii to enable Citizen Developers to make Apps

Citizen developers is a new trend in the IT world. They have enough technical knowledge and understanding of certain processes but are not traditional programmers or developers by profession.

Today, Snappii, a leading mobile app development corporation (Snappii) announces that University of Southern California (USC), one of the world’s leading private research universities, has selected the Snappii Mobile App Development Platform to design, create, and deploy its mobile applications. As a result, the students were able to identify a business process, identify ways to improve the process, and design and prepare a software application with Snappii to support the improved process.

“Citizen developers are a new trend in the world of IT. They have enough technical knowledge and understanding of certain processes but are not traditional programmers or developers by profession. The key factor is that citizen developers tend to create applications without coding. The main benefits of such development are the high development speed and agility, and also lower costs. Enterprises are struggling to deal with app backlog and now employees are becoming citizen developers.” - Alex Bakman, Snappii Owner and President

“I teach a class on Business Process Redesign for business students. We are using Snappii, so the students are able to do an end-to-end design, starting with a company that has problems, then doing a process redesign of the company, and then taking a portion of the new process and automating it with Snappii as a mobile application. None of the students had any programming experience. They succeeded in creating their applications, thanks in part to a great interface.” - Ann Majchrzak, USC Associates Chaired Professor of Business Administration, University of Southern California
