Times have changed. One-dimensional applications just won't cut it anymore.

Application Development and Delivery (AD&D) leaders seek mature platforms that integrate emerging technologies to enable innovation and collaboration.

Today's Low-Code Platform is quickly becoming the conduit for digital transformation (remember that phrase?) within IT organizations.

The 2017 Forrester Wave for Low-Code Platforms not only reveals the top vendors in the low-code space...

...but also covers the versatility and sophistication of these modern platforms:

*Greater depth of development services/tools: broad range of user-interface, process, data management, reporting, app-management, for forward-looking features*

*Digital process and collaboration: Process apps are the highest priority for low-code applications*

*Distinctive features: IoT Integration, AI and Machine Learning Technologies*

*Ambitious Vendor Visions: Addressing engagement applications, intermediate process and workflow applications, and portals and other aggregated user interfaces *

*Prove useful for large-scale applications: Using Low-code platforms to build applications used across the enterprise *
