“I teach a class on Business Process Redesign for business students. We are using Snappii so the students are able to do and 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 application, thanks in part to a great interface” –says Ann Majchrzak, USC Associates Chaired Professor of Business Administration, University of Southern California.

The business students are representing a growing class of “Citizen developers” who are developing business apps without any prior knowledge of programming. They understand the business problem that they are trying to solve. Using Snappii Codeless platform enables them to visually build apps using drag, drop and configure approach. The key factor is that citizen developers create applications without coding. The main benefits of such development are the high development speed and agility, easy of change, and also lower development costs. Enterprises are struggling to deal with app backlog and now employees are becoming citizen developers. - Alex Bakman, Snappii Owner and President, says. - Cloud based offering such as Snappii is enabling ordinary business users to create apps they need without coding and without waiting for IT.”
