Press Release - 10 October 2019 - Atlanta, USA - Leading global advisory and research firm Gartner has named Betty Blocks as a Visionary in this year’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms. It’s the third time the no-code platform has been recognized in the research.
According to Gartner, “A low-code application platform (LCAP) is an application platform that supports rapid application development, one-step deployment, execution and management using declarative, high-level programming abstractions, such as model-driven and metadata-based programming languages. Gartner views “no-code” application platforms as part of the LCAP market. “No-code” is a marketing and positioning statement, implying that the platform requires text entry only for formulas or simple expressions, all other aspects of application development being enabled by visual modeling or configuration. The LCAP market includes such no-code platforms.” With a culmination of research, Gartner provides clients a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market's competitors.
We believe it’s because of a strong devotion to making application development possible without technical barriers (that means, no coding required), that Betty Blocks’ mission to democratize software development has led to its Visionary position in Gartner’s report. By positioning itself as a no-code platform - rather than a low-code platform - Betty Blocks believes it has dedicated its platform roadmap to enabling Citizen Developers to innovate freely.
With the ultimate goal of removing the technological barriers presented by traditional programming, Betty Blocks aims to enable entire organizations (not just IT) to build applications without writing a single line of code. It’s a vision that not only accelerates software development but alleviates the pressures on current IT departments. As a result, organizations save precious time that they can now spend on innovating.
Betty Blocks is very proud to be recognized by Gartner, and will use the report as constructive feedback to guide its further development.
