Kintone Recognized for 6th Consecutive Time in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms

The Kintone platform responds to the global developer shortage by offering non-developers a place to build their own digital work tools.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Feb. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Kintone, the all-in-one customizable digital workplace platform built for teamwork, has been recognized in the latest Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms* (LCAP). Being one of only 17 vendors to be placed this year, this also marks the sixth consecutive time that Gartner positioned Kintone within its LCAP report where vendors are evaluated.

LCAP is defined as “an application platform that is used to rapidly develop and deploy custom applications by abstracting and minimizing or replacing the coding needed in development”. The minimum required to qualify as an LCAP consists of:

Low-code capabilities (such as a model-driven or graphical programming approach with scripting) to develop a complete application, support for developing applications consisting of user interfaces, business logic, workflow and data services, and simplified application test, deployment and management.

Amid a global shift toward low-code and no-code as modes of software development, this year’s report predicts that by 2025, the enterprise LCAP market is part of an overall low-code development technologies space that will reach US$29 billion in revenue. The LCAP segment specifically is expected to expand to US$14.38 billion, amounting to a compound annual growth rate of 26.4%. The report recognizes that, “LCAPs for a variety of developer audiences are becoming mainstream. Even conservative IT organizations that have previously resisted modernization and automation are exploiting LCAPs to move to the cloud, enable mobile user experiences, address skills and resource shortages, and achieve faster time to deployment.”

Commenting on Gartner recognition, Yoshihisa Aono, CEO of Kintone developer Cybozu Inc said, “We’re honoured to be recognized for the sixth consecutive time in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms. There is a growing need among companies for more flexibility, collaboration and autonomy, and customer demand for LCAPs is one of the key drivers for this. Although Kintone has gained much success through enabling teams to design their own customizable collaborative workspace, we still aim to continue building on our strengths as a no-code, centralized and highly collaborative platform, which is aligned with our vision for the future of work.”

Throughout 2022, Kintone has continued to enhance its product with new features and functionalities. The platform is currently used by over 25,000 customers around the world, ranging from SMBs to multinational enterprises. Its ecosystem of partners, IT professionals and citizen developers have collectively built and deployed over 2 million applications.
