According to Gartner, “IT leaders are facing mounting challenges around application delivery. Developer shortages and skill-set challenges are impacting their ability to deliver increasing levels of business automation in a rapid and reliable fashion. In response, the vendors of low-code application platforms (LCAPs) have been improving the ease at which business applications can be delivered, providing broader capabilities requiring smaller and less specialised teams of developers.”

In addition, Gartner states, “By 2023, over 50% of medium to large enterprises will have adopted an LCAP as one of their strategic application platforms.”
