SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 27, 2023
Kintone, the all-in-one customizable digital workplace platform built for teamwork, has been recognized in the latest Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms* (LCAP). This marks the sixth consecutive time Gartner positioned Kintone within its LCAP vendor report, which is used by applications and software engineering leaders to compare and contrast leading vendors in the global market. Kintone was one of only 17 vendors to be placed this year.
Gartner defines an LCAP as: “an application platform that is used to rapidly develop and deploy custom applications by abstracting and minimizing or replacing the coding needed in development.” The minimum required to qualify as an LCAP consists of: “Low-code capabilities (such as a model-driven or graphical programming approach with scripting) to develop a complete application; support for developing applications consisting of user interfaces, business logic, workflow and data services; and simplified application test, deployment and management.”
This year’s report comes amid a global shift toward low-code and no-code as modes of software development. The enterprise LCAP market is part of an overall low-code development technologies space that the report predicts will reach $29 billion in revenue by 2025. The LCAP segment specifically is expected to expand to $14.38 billion, amounting to a compound annual growth rate of 26.4%.
The report recognizes that “LCAPs for a variety of developer audiences are becoming mainstream. Even conservative IT organizations that have previously resisted modernization and automation are exploiting LCAPs to move to the cloud, enable mobile user experiences, address skills and resource shortages, and achieve faster time to deployment.”
“We’re delighted to have been recognized for the sixth consecutive time in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms,” said Yoshihisa Aono, president of Kintone. “Customer demand for -code application platforms is being driven by a growing need among companies for more flexibility, collaboration, and autonomy. Kintone offers a solution by enabling users and teams to design their own customizable collaborative workspace.
