[Salesforce.com] Gartner Magic Quadrant for High Productivity Application Platforms as a Service (April 2018)

Why is hpaPaaS a strategic imperative for both IT and business decision makers?

Customer expectations have changed with technology. Currently, 58% of consumers and 77% of business buyers say that technology has significantly changed their expectations of companies [1]. Over 80% of IT leaders say their role is entering a new era driven by customer expectation, even though IT teams still spend an average of only 46% of their time innovating for the business.

Amid all of these demands, IT leaders’ interest in low-code development has skyrocketed over the last two years, from 52% to 76%. By 2019, it’s projected that 81% of IT leaders will be extremely or very interested in low-code development. With a high-productivity application Platform-as-a-Service (hpaPaaS), IT can work much more closely with the business to rapidly deliver apps and digitize processes.

Using model-driven development, business users and less technical “citizen developers” can create the major part of the application, calling for IT’s help only for governance and custom code. The result is faster and easier app dev, broader business empowerment, and accelerated innovation. A strong majority of IT leaders believe that citizen development will transform their development cycle times, free IT resources for more complex tasks, and increase innovation across the organization.
