Low-Code Application Development Platforms (LCAP) have become an attractive and mainstream practice among businesses looking to increase developer efficiency and accelerate the development of new product lines. Nucleus expects LCAP solutions to continue to gain popularity as businesses seek ways to maximize existing developer resources and efficiently extend IT ecosystems.
“Through ROI studies, Nucleus has determined that LCAPs deliver value through reduced development costs, accelerated go-to-market for new products and services, and increased operational efficiency,” said Research Manager Isaac Gould. “Organizations may deploy an LCAP as a revenue driver, using the tools to bring technology services and products to market faster and with fewer developer resources.”
