As the low-code and no-code approaches to application development explode in the marketplace, confusion surrounds these terms. The analysts don’t really agree on how no-code and low-code differ, with Gartner even downplaying the use of either term. As a result, enterprise buyers are left scratching their heads, as the low-code and no-code terminology remains remarkably persistent.
In this brief, Jason Bloomberg of Intellyx (and a regular contributor to Forbes) tackles the confusion, asserting that the difference between the two segments is not “code,” but rather who the user is and how the approach is being used. He describes no-code and low-code in depth, points out the pitfalls and clearly delineates the difference between the two. And, for those who are trying to find out which approach works for the enterprise, he has the answer.
