Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
SAN FRANCISCO—August 20, 2019—Salesforce [NYSE: CRM], the global leader in CRM, today announced that Salesforce has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in its 2019 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms.
"Today’s leading CIOs not only keep up with business needs, but see around corners to leverage new technologies as engines for growth,” said Sarah Franklin, EVP and GM of Platform, Salesforce. “With the majority of IT leaders ready to supercharge productivity using low-code, Salesforce is proud to offer trailblazing CIOs the industry’s leading point-and-click app dev tools while leveraging Trailhead, our free online learning platform, to skill up employees so they're ready to harness those tools.”
According to Gartner, “A low-code application platform (LCAP) is an application platform that supports rapid application development, one-step deployment, execution and management using declarative, high-level programming abstractions, such as model-driven and metadata-based programming languages. They support the development of user interfaces, business logic and data services, and improve productivity at the expense of portability across vendors, as compared with conventional application platforms.”
