Skuid, the leading cloud application platform, today announced it has been named a Strong Performer by Forrester in The Forrester Wave™: Mobile Low-Code Platforms For Business Developers, Q3 2018. The report evaluates vendors in the mobile low-code platforms market and their product offerings.
Forrester evaluated the offerings of top mobile low-code platform vendors against 30 criteria from three categories: current offering, strategy and market presence. Vendors were selected for inclusion based on a focus on business users and interest from Forrester clients.
Skuid debuts in the report as a “Strong Performer” based on its performance in the categories of current offering, strategy, and market presence. The report noted its blend of “deep data access with a design-first approach.”
“Skuid has particularly strong data modeling and reporting functionality, so it’s a good choice for business users who want to create mobile apps with data, reports and charts that users will manipulate in deployed apps,” Forrester notes in the report.
Skuid achieved the highest possible scores in the following criteria:
- In the Current offering category: integration, embedded reporting, platform deployment options, deployment, app store support and asset sharing, app scaling and performance
- In the Market presence category: global footprint
As the report explains, “Mobile engagement naturally becomes a high priority as business leaders look to digitally transform their customer and employee experiences. But mobile apps don’t just create themselves, and experienced mobile developers remain in short supply in many digital and IT organizations.”
“Our custom, mobile configure-price-quote (CPQ) app built with Skuid has allowed us to accelerate our sales process significantly and better serve our customers,” said Ian Vargas, Director, Sales System & Customer Service at TissueTech. “The mobile app connects to our back-end system and allows our teams to access the information they need, when and where they need it, in a frictionless way.”
The report goes on to explain that low-code and no-code development tools for business users offer a solution to this problem by giving digital leaders the ability to reduce IT’s development workload and focus on delivering a great customer experience.
Organizations can benefit from the subject-matter expertise of frontline employees to build applications. They can also leverage the skill sets of both technical developers and citizen developers to alleviate the talent gap issue.
“Customers and employees want enterprise applications to be as intuitive and delightful to use as the apps they use in their personal lives, with easy access on any device,” said Ken McElrath, CEO at Skuid.
“With Skuid, business, IT and design can work together to elevate productivity, pulling together disparate data from across their enterprise stack and creating truly human-centered user experiences.” View a complimentary copy of the report here.Get my copy
