We’re thrilled to announce kintone’s first-ever recognition in the Gartner 2016 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service, Worldwide.

Application platform technology in the cloud continues to be the center of growth as IT leaders respond to demands for custom business applications. No code platforms are at the forefront, allowing business teams to quickly and easily develop and deploy applications.

According to the Gartner report, “Within the PaaS market, aPaaS is the biggest sector ($1.6 billion for 2015; see "Market Share: All Software Markets, Worldwide, 2015").”

“We are extremely pleased to be acknowledged by Gartner in this Magic Quadrant report for the first time,” said kintone Chief Operating Officer Dave Landa. “The report includes many global leaders at the forefront of innovation in the aPaaS market and validates the growth and market opportunity for enterprise ‘low-code / no-code’ platforms in general, and kintone specifically.”

kintone is the US corporation and aPaaS offering from Cybozu Inc, which provides the number one collaboration and groupware software products in Japan.

Our position in this niche space speaks volumes about our offerings as a citizen developer platform with enterprise-level data security and governance features that appeal to enterprise IT departments. kintone’s drag and drop application development capability and ability to convert spreadsheets into forms with prefilled data enables lines of business leaders with little to no technical skills the high-productivity customization they need to build, deploy and manage applications.

From back to front office, CRM to project management, over 4,000 companies are using hundreds of thousands of kintone apps to efficiently run their business processes.

And we’re not stopping there. The kintone ecosystem is expanding with the rise of IoT control and machine-learning-based real-time prediction by integrating AWS IoT, AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway technologies.

Enterprise-ready kintone allows organizations to maintain data security with granular permission controls, 2-Factor Authentication (2FA), and Data-at-Rest encryption while promoting real-time multichannel productivity with native mobile apps. It also generates analytics dashboards with dynamic charts and integrates seamlessly with scores of other services with APIs, custom plugins and via kintone’s connection to the Zapier integration hub.

“When we launched kintone in 2011, our vision was to use the pre-built services and ‘nocode’ development approach to transform business through empowering teams to create and run the applications and workflows that suit them specifically,” said Cybozu Inc. CEO Yoshihisa Aono, “With more than 4,000 customers and 250,000 applications running worldwide, and now with this recognition from Gartner, we feel our vision has been proven out. As such, we plan to continue our upward trajectory by expanding the kintone platform with new functionality for today’s mobile and agile workforce to further our mission of making teamwork better globally.”
