Betty Blocks, the only truly no-code platform for creating mobile, business and web applications has been named by Gartner in the April 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service. The hpaPaaS Quadrant is a first timer. Gartner used to evaluate high-productivity platforms together with high-control platforms. This separation marks the rising of a new category that enables significant speed, cost, and technology benefits over traditional application development methods.

Dutch Start-up Betty Blocks in Gartner Magic Quadrant
“By evaluating hpaPaaS as a separate category, we feel that the possibilities and added value of high-productivity platforms are clearly recognized,” says Chris Obdam, CEO at Betty Blocks. “We are rapidly growing and expanding internationally, and this inclusion is a confirmation of our vision. In today’s digital world, the fast will beat the slow, no matter the size.”
The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluated 14 solutions this year. "We feel that we as a relatively young player from Netherlands have been named in this report is pretty special. Especially when you consider how fast which we have achieved, " said CEO Chris Obdam."We believe we are now on par with leading companies in this market and that is where we want to go. It is our ambition to challenge the established".
We think placement of Betty Blocks in this Magic Quadrant report is a new recognition as a major player in this market. "With a little affinity for IT, anyone can build an application with Betty Blocks itself. This is unique in the market and reflects our vision that we have on software development. You have a motion that says that all children need to learn programming in elementary school. But you can reverse it. Make programming easier and achieve the same result," says Obdam
In the Netherlands more and more organizations are discovering the benefits of Betty Blocks. The municipalities Horn and Zaanstad already developed their own applications on the platform, as well as a range of major companies including KPMG, Tele2 and VIVAT. Betty Blocks expected this year, like last year, doubling again in turnover and number of employees.
