The low-code buzz has been around for some time, and many organizations are now embracing it by transforming their IT into a more agile, business-focused environment.
To be precise, the seeds for the low-code movement were sown during the 1970s. Now, it has become the new norm in almost every software category.
Some interesting stats affirming the same:
- A study by Forrester estimates that spending in the low-code development category would exceed $20 billion in 2022.
- Gartner estimates that the low-code application platforms would serve 65% of the app development domain by 2024.
The constant technological updates fueled by the pandemic have forced companies to move digital almost overnight. And amid this ever-proliferating digital landscape, citizen developers are building functional applications without writing a single line of code.
At present, when most enterprises focus on creating new business models, enhancing employee productivity, optimizing workflows, and delivering a great customer experience — the time has never been better to leverage ServiceNow App Engine.
