No-code development platforms provide drag-and-drop tools that enable businesses to develop software quickly without coding. The platforms provide WYSIWYG editors and drag-and-drop components to quickly assemble and design applications. Both developers and non-developers can use these tools to practice rapid application development with customized workflows and functionality. Many of these products are geared toward enterprise-sized businesses that need to quickly design business processes and workflow applications at a large scale. The tools provide templates for workflow, element libraries, and interface customization to create fully functioning applications without any coding.
These products differ from low-code development platforms because they allow for less functionality and customizability. Instead, they offer tools to quickly organize information rather than input unique code. Products in this category will offer no source code access or code modification capabilities.
To qualify for inclusion in the No-Code Development Platforms category, a product must:
- Offer drag-and-drop elements to assemble applications
- Allow non-developers and non-technical users to build applications
- Integrate with databases, web services, or APIs to connect data
