What is Low&No-Code?

Gartner, an American consulting company, released a report in February 2021 detailing the extent of Low-Code/No-Code technologies (requiring little or no code):

  • 23% projected market growth in 2021 (combining Low-Code and No-Code).
  • The market currently stands at 13.8 billion dollars worldwide.
  • Gartner estimates that this type of application will account for 64% of circulating applications by 2024.

Low Code/No Code technologies enable, among other things, the creation of business processes and the replacement of spreadsheets with secure applications, empowering employees with basic technical knowledge (Citizen Developers). They also provide CIOs the opportunity to implement a more centralized industrial development strategy based on a Low Code Application Platform (LCAP), enhancing productivity and reliability by focusing more on the business aspect rather than the technical.

Through its Low Code/No Code offering, Cat-Amania assists its clients in harnessing the power of these platforms, automating business processes, and providing secure, multi-channel solutions integrated into the existing information system. Cat-Amania experts also advise CIOs in selecting solutions and associated governance (to master the IS and prevent/limit ‘shadow IT’).

Cat-Amania invests time through its INNOVA innovation program to solidify the position of No and Low Code technologies in the information system and organizations. This led Cat-Amania to explore the Axelor solution and quickly become a partner, convinced of the quality and potential of this Low Code platform.
