Skuid, the leading cloud design-and-deploy business applications platform, today announced that the company was recognized in the October report “The Forrester Wave™: Low-Code Development Platforms for AD&D Pros, Q4 2017” by Forrester Research, Inc.
The report is an evaluation of low-code development platforms for application development and delivery. The 13 most significant options in the space were researched and evaluated by Forrester Wave based on 26 criteria.
“The Skuid platform emphasizes well-designed, modern user experience (UX) that work across channels created by collaborators in various roles,” the independent research firm said. “Skuid is one of two vendors in our assessment with great strengths in working to enable consumer-grade visual design for web UX.”
Skuid’s consumerized interface is easily accessible to business leaders, technology users and developers, and makes it possible to create custom solutions without sacrificing development time.
According to a study conducted by Forrester Consulting earlier this year, Skuid expedites enterprise application development by 73 percent, with a one month payback period, and a 365 percent increase in return on investment.
“Skuid has a particular genius for UX, which will appeal to server-side developers who need to deliver ‘beautiful front-ends,’” as stated in the October report. “Skuid’s road map is aggressive, and we expect a lot more from the vendor over the coming months.”
“This Wave report validates what we already know about our cloud UX platform,” Ken McElrath, founder and CEO of Skuid said. “Our design-and-deploy platform delivers elegant and innovative enterprise solutions with lightning-fast development time, at any scale, and to both business and technology leaders. By unifying data, apps and processes to millions of users around the world, we’re delivering tangible productivity and ROI benefits to our customers.”
Skuid was founded in 2013 on the simple belief that enterprise software should stop forcing people to behave like machines. Instead, apps should behave more like the humans who use them, so everyone can thrive in the digital world.
With Skuid’s simple-to-use but incredibly robust cloud front-end design-and-deploy platform, anyone can connect to disparate data sources, assemble highly complex, beautiful, bespoke applications, and instantly make changes, all without writing code.
More than 5 million users across 32 countries use Skuid to engage with each other, with data, and with new customers in meaningful ways. For more information, visit http://skuid.com/.
