Buyer's guide: Rapid application development software

Today, nearly every IT organization must operate in a hybrid environment where applications take various forms: legacy systems that remain on-prem; existing applications migrated to the cloud; new applications built with cloud-native approaches. These emerging challenges call for new approaches to application development.

But, as the market becomes increasingly saturated with different vendors all claiming their solution is the best, how can you be sure which one is right for your business?

IT Central Station put together a new, independent report based on real users’ feedback. The 37-page document includes an overview of the 10 best vendors alongside a summary of the top rapid application development software solutions offered by these companies.


Rating the top rapid application development software

IT Central Station outlined an initial 29 solution providers in their vendor directory but selected 10 enterprise level rapid application development software solutions to include in this buyer’s guide. Those vendors are ServiceNow, Bizagi, QuickBase, Appian, Mendix, OutSystems, Salesforce, Pega, Oracle, and Kony

The criteria used to evaluate the solutions consists of product reviews, ratings and comparisons to other solution providers. Each offering included in the report is accompanied by a sample of its customers, its top comparisons and some also have a breakdown of the industries and company size the majority of their reviewers originate from listed.

All the reviews included in the report have been posted in the 24 months prior to publication and are from real, authenticated users. These reviews are comprised from a selection of four key topic areas to ensure readers get an unbiased overview of each offering. These topic areas consist of the most valuable features of the solution, the improvements it made to the users’ organization, how the solution could be improved upon to and where relevant, its pricing, set up cost and licensing fee.


Based on tens of thousands of comparisons and dozens of bespoke reviews this short report offers unbiased feedback on the most widely used rapid application development software in the marketplace today.
