- Surprisingly, nearly 40% of chief technology officers (CTO) in North America acknowledged never hearing of low-code and no-code software development
AMERSFOORT, Netherlands , Aug. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CLEVR, the company that helps enterprises accelerate their digital transitions through the enormous power of the Mendix low-code and no-code (LCNC) development solutions, today announced the results of a survey that shows a shockingly high number of executives from North America have yet to hear about no-code and low-code software development.
More than a quarter (27%) of the C-suite executives from North America surveyed revealed that they were unaware of the technology. The level of knowledge about LCNC was even low when it came to chief technology officers (CTO) in North America , traditionally the savviest tech people within an organization. Of those surveyed in North America a whopping 38% acknowledged not knowing anything about LCNC. That contrasted sharply with their European counterparts. Only 24% of CTOs based in Europe were unfamiliar with the technology.
Angelique Schouten , CLEVR's CEO, warns that companies that haven't incorporated LCNC into their development stack are simply operating at a disadvantage. Schouten is a member of the team that enabled the first banks in the world to operate fully in the cloud based on Ohpen's AWS cloud-native core banking engine. She knows plenty about the headaches involved with traditional development within organizations. Schouten maintains that LCNC is at the forefront of a silent revolution among developers and managers who seek to cut back development time and cost. Software has become the beating heart of business and countless companies around the globe are in one stage or another of digitizing their processes. LCNC is a visualization-based "drag-and-drop" development technology that eliminates the need to create code from scratch and is a far faster, more flexible and a less costly way to build solutions.
