Application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) tools have rapidly gained momentum in recent years and it’s no surprise why. Businesses that are facing mounting pressure to deliver proprietary apps and services in response to the “consumerization of IT movement” have found themselves needing to transform around digital technologies. Technologies such as aPaaS provide a solid foundation for the development and deployment elements of apps.

As PaaS tools continue to grow in popularity, aPaaS capabilities have helped launch renewed growth. A Gartner study found that the application infrastructure and middleware market experienced revenue increases of 7.8 percent in 2015 when accounting through constant currency terms.

Enter low-code development. Extending on the benefits of high productivity aPaaS tools, low-code platforms accelerate business transformation by enabling the rapid delivery of business applications with a minimum amount of hand-coding and minimal upfront investment in setup, training and deployment. Appian’s low-code platform radically accelerates the time it takes to build and deploy powerful modern applications, on premises or in the cloud.
