January 13, 2020 | Matthew Carswell

Low-Code development is a term that was coined by analysts at Forrester almost 6 years ago, but it’s a trend that’s been snowballing since the advent of the spreadsheet. Many predict that over the next decade business applications will undergo a vast shift towards Low-Code platforms. Gartner predicts that by 2024 nearly 75% of business will be using at least four Low-Code development platforms. Low-Code is great because it inherently decreases friction between users and technology creation, enabling value to explode onto the scene faster than ever before.
