What is low-code app development?

Democratize development. Ramp up productivity. No special tech skills required.

"By 2023, the number of active citizen developers at large enterprises will be at least four times the number of professional developers."

Gartner 2019

What is it?

In the race toward digital transformation, developers are more in demand than ever. Low code empowers those without tech backgrounds – but with deep knowledge of business priorities – to go forth and optimize.

Instead of writing code to develop software, visual tools and drag-and-drop functionalities are used, so little-to-no coding is actually required. Low-code solutions let stakeholders solve problems that meet business and customer needs by allowing apps to be built and updated, quickly and easily, within centralized IT guardrails.

How Pega does it

Instead of writing code to develop software, intuitive drag-and-drop visual tools make creating and adjusting game-changing apps doable in an afternoon, instead of over the course of weeks or months. Pega is a low-code platform – with decades of expertise. Advanced tools, accessible training, and proven templates make it easy to build mission-critical apps in record time.
