SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Kintone, the teamwork platform with a visual application builder that boosts collaboration, has been recognized in Gartner's 2020 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms* (LCAP). This is the fifth consecutive year Gartner has recognized Kintone in its LCAP vendor assessment report, and Kintone was one of 18 vendors profiled.
Gartner defines LCAPs as "an application platform that supports rapid application development, deployment, execution, and management using declarative, high-level programming abstractions such as model-driven and metadata-based programming languages, and one-step deployments. LCAPs provide and support user interfaces, business processes, and data services."
According to Gartner, "Enterprise low-code application platforms deliver high-productivity and multifunction capabilities across central, departmental and citizen IT functions." The firm notes that "the vendors of low-code application platforms (LCAPs) have been improving the ease at which business applications can be delivered, providing broader capabilities requiring smaller and less specialized teams of developers."
"We're very pleased to be selected for inclusion for Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms Report again, our fifth consecutive inclusion in this influential analysis," said Dave Landa, CEO of Kintone. "We've seen explosive growth in demand for our kind of digital workplace platform, which both inspires individual empowerment and enables efficient teamwork, as organizations of all sizes across a wide variety of industries look to rapidly develop and update applications and systems to maintain team productivity during this pandemic, while also managing the persistent scarcity of skilled developers who can meet these software needs."
During 2020, Kintone enhanced its LCAP with numerous features that equip teams and workgroups to develop custom software that addresses their evolving needs. Kintone now has 17,500 customers across enterprise and SMBs, and has created an ecosystem of partners, developers, and citizen developers that have collectively built and deployed over 1,000,000 applications.
