We’re proud to announce that for the seventh consecutive year Kintone, the all-in-one, customizable workplace platform built for teams, has been recognized in the latest Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms* (LCAP).

Gartner defines an LCAP as: “application platforms that are used to rapidly develop and run custom applications by abstracting and minimizing the use of programming languages.” The minimum requirements to qualify as an LCAP are to: “Include low-code capabilities to develop a complete application consisting of user interfaces for web and mobile channels, business logic, and data storage; support a model-driven or graphical programming approach with scripting; and act as a runtime platform for applications developed on an LCAP.”

The low-code market is projected to reach $44.5 billion in revenue by 2026 (with a compound annual growth rate [CAGR] of 19.2% from 2021 through 2026). Specifically, the LCAP segment is projected to expand to more than $18 billion in 2026, with a CAGR of more than 20%.

Among the key trends driving enterprise adoption, Gartner states: “Democratization and citizen development initiatives are also fueling enterprise adoption of low-code development technologies. These initiatives are not just limited to professional IT developers looking for speedy application delivery; they also apply to the kind of no-code development tools used by citizen developers (business technologists) within business units.” 

“We’re honored to have been recognized for the seventh consecutive time in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms,” said Yoshihisa Aono, president of Kintone. “Since we launched the Kintone platform in 2011, we have consistently enhanced its functionalities and expanded our ecosystem of partners to meet the growing needs of citizen developers.

“The global shortage of IT professionals is exacerbating the need for digital transformation. Kintone’s ease of use allows citizen developers without IT expertise to quickly and effectively deploy business applications and integrate them with other systems. We look forward to pursuing our global expansion and supporting our clients by providing a secure, centralized no-code platform for optimal business collaboration.”

Throughout 2023, Kintone has actively continued to improve its platform with new features and functionalities. Kintone currently has over 31,000 customers around the world, ranging from SMBs to multinational enterprises. Its ecosystem of partners, IT professionals, and citizen developers have collectively built and deployed more than two million applications.
