The Rise of Low-code and No-code App Dev
Paul Melnyk Founder, President & CEO

Not so long ago, the skills required to build applications were very specialized. Anyone with an idea for an application, automated process, or simply to store and analyze data, needed to hire someone, or learn to code themselves. Thanks to companies like Google, this era of requiring such specialized skills to develop the most basic ideas into reality is coming to an end.

Now don’t get me wrong, we will need very specialized skills for the foreseeable future to develop more advanced systems and applications like AI or other sophisticated requirements. However, when we look at other more commoditized needs like building a decent and functional mobile app, or an app that allows a business manager to make more sense out of the data they are collecting, low-code and no-code app dev tools will spur innovation from within the ranks of everyday employees who are not coders.

The value that this will generate for organizations, especially smaller ones with limited budgets is potentially huge.

Google has been on the forefront of democratizing app dev for a while now. App Maker, part of Google’s G Suite workplace productivity offering has been around since 2016. App Maker is a low code development tool that connects to G Suite apps. You can go simple by using Sheets as a data store or more complex by connecting to a GCP backend. App Maker can be used to accelerate business workflows or to scale operational processes. App Maker is available in G Suite Business and Enterprise tiers.

Most recently, Google has acquired a company called AppSheet. This acquisition will help to strengthen Google’s leadership position in democratizing no-code app development.
