Many software vendors claim to offer a low-code development platform. In fact, one independent analyst compiled a list of more than 85 vendors in the low-code space as of April last year.
Many of these so-called “low-code vendors” talk about the benefits of low-code development platforms in general terms on their web sites and sales materials. In doing so, they gloss over the fact that not all low-code vendors’ products offer the same capabilities.
To be clear, the benefits of low-code and the benefits of self-identifying low-code development platforms are not perfectly 1:1. Low-code is a technology, much like the wheel. The wheel by itself isn’t terribly useful. But, when applied properly, wheels help us perform tasks seemingly impossible before.
It’s the same with low-code. Low-code is applicable to nearly any use case the enterprise can throw at it when coupled with capable supporting tools and framed within an intelligent low-code development infrastructure.
