Forrester Research names Kony as one of the top 11 in Low Code
Kony, Inc., an enterprise mobility and applications company, has announced it has been named a “Leader” in Mobile Low-code Development Platforms by independent research firm Forrester Research, Inc. Based on the in-depth evaluation, Kony achieved the highest score possible in 14 strategy and current offering criteria, including Declarative UX Tooling, Integration, Reporting, Deployment Options, Mobile Offline, Engagement Services, Quality Assurance and Feedback Management, Versioning, Deployment and App Store Support, Security Controls and App Management, App Scaling and Performance, and Platform Certifications.

In The Forrester Wave: Mobile Low-Code Development Platforms, Q1 2017 report, Forrester researched, analyzed and scored 11 companies based on a 24-criteria evaluation of Mobile Low-code Development Platform vendors.

According to Forrester, the market for mobile low-code development platforms is growing because more aspiring, semiprofessional, and professional developers use them to close the gap between demand for mobile apps and the talent available to create them. Tools must support a variety of mobile workloads, as well as developers with varying skill levels.

The author of the Forrester Wave research, Jeffery Hammond, stated in the report, “While Kony targeted design professionals when it introduced Visualizer in 2015, the company has pivoted and now targets low-code developers as well.”

The Forrester Wave report cited that “Visualizer can generate native, hybrid, or mobile web apps, and the declarative WYSISYG editor enables rapid dynamic prototyping and instant app previews. Visualizer is a good match for developers who want to build high-fidelity consumer-facing apps, since coders have extensive control of branding and deployment of the apps that they create with it.”

The report also points out that “Visualizer borrows features from its professional developer cousin, Kony MobileFabric, to provider strong integration support with connectors for Oracle and SAP, as well as good support for notifications, marketing campaigns, and integrated customer feedback.”

“As companies race to embrace apps as a catalyst to transform their businesses in the new digital era, it is critical to empower and expand the pool of design and development talent to quickly and easily build apps that offer differentiated user experiences,” said Thomas E. Hogan, chairman and chief executive officer, Kony, Inc. “We’re already experiencing a dramatic increase in our Developer Community, which has doubled since last year to close to forty-thousand members. We are very pleased that Forrester has recognized Kony as a leader with the highest score in current offering. We believe this is a strong testament to Kony’s leadership in innovation and our commitment to delivering exceptional value to our clients.”
