New Whitepaper: Getting Started with Citizen Development

If you’ve been paying attention, you know that rapid application development tools like low- and no-code platforms are becoming increasingly popular in organizations. They’re valuable tools because of how quickly they allow developers to build and deploy applications in an era of rapid digital transformation, and where time is money.

Now that the platforms are becoming more widespread, the increased speed of development is becoming more of a given. That means that IT departments are becoming more sophisticated in what they want to achieve. They can now focus on product innovation, growth, and improving the customer experience rather than keeping the lights on and wading through long backlogs.

Enabling the business to be more self-sufficient is also emerging as a key driver behind no-code adoption. No-code platforms appeal to Citizen Developers – business users who contribute to application delivery – because of their ease of use and the fact that users can develop applications without prior programming knowledge. That means the business can be less dependent on IT for things like departmental or workflow applications.
