Skuid Recognized as a Challenger in Low-code Development Platforms by Independent Research Firm
Chattanooga, Tenn. – Skuid, the leading no-code application platform, today announced it was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in The Forrester Wave™: Low-Code Development Platforms For AD&D Professionals, Q1 2019. In this evaluation, Skuid was cited as a Challenger in low-code development platforms for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals.
Forrester evaluated the offerings of the 13 most significant providers in the space against 28 criteria to show how vendors compare, and to help AD&D pros select the right platform for their needs.
“Skuid is best when user experience is paramount,” Forrester cited in the report. “Skuid now provides its deep tooling for web and mobile user experiences, including a new tool for designers, as an independent platform. The vendor’s reference customers all use the platform for customer engagement, some for can’t-ever-fail apps implementing sales channels or core business operations. Skuid’s data management, process automation, content, and integration features serve a user experience-first development approach.”
Vendors were selected for inclusion by Forrester based on a combination of factors, and each of the vendors in the Wave offer a comprehensive, declarative development approach; product design that serves the needs of AD&D professionals; a low-cost-of-entry commercial model; supporting many business use cases; and primarily targeting large enterprises.
“We put design and user experience first,” said Ken McElrath, CEO at Skuid. “By starting app design from the user backward, instead of the database forward, enterprises can create more engaging, useful web and mobile applications. With Skuid, developers can easily and quickly assemble an app front end and connect it with existing systems, without writing a bunch of repetitive code. This means our customers can slash the time and expense to develop, design and run applications, while increasing adoption with superior UX. We’re thrilled to be recognized by Forrester for Skuid’s user experience-first development approach.”
“Consider Skuid when great web and mobile experiences are paramount. The vendor’s platform, including integration, will support these use cases very well,” said Forrester in the report.
