12 Sep Zuznow included in Gartner’s Market Guide for Rapid Mobile App Development Tools – 1 of only 3 vendors that support all product capabilities and functionality
On September 6th, 2016 Zuznow was featured in Gartner’s report “Market Guide for Rapid Mobile App Development Tools”. Among the 34 vendors covered Zuznow is one of only 3 vendors that provide all of the product capabilities and native app functionality included in the report.
While the report provides a comprehensive overview on rapid development tools and platforms for mobile, it mostly uncovers the diversity and variety of tools. This again shows that one size simply does not fit all. Just as enterprise mobility projects are diverse and multi-layered – so are the tools that offer solutions to rapidly develop and deploy such projects.
According to Gartner, all of the tools offer an immediate business value, helping IT professionals to overcome the growing demand for apps. In an earlier report, Gartner noted that current demand is 5 times bigger than IT capacity. By using rapid development tool large organizations can quickly reduce the backlog and increase consumer and employee satisfaction.
Gartner’s Definition of RMAD
In this report, Gartner defines “Rapid mobile app development (RMAD) tools as a “class of coding-optional tools that enable nonprogrammers to build mobile apps to support, at a minimum, iOS and Android devices. These tools offer high productivity for developers and nondevelopers alike through a variety of approaches that both automate and abstract app development efforts, including drag-and-drop editors, code generation and orchestration, model-driven development, virtualization, business process mapping, component assembly, app configuration and forms construction.”
The Zuznow Platform – More than an RMAD
The Zuznow platform includes all capabilities of an RMAD, according to Gartner’s definition, but it’s true capabilities and value goes well beyond that of a typical RMAD.
Zuznow is the only tool that has based its technology on advanced Artificial Intelligence. Its expert system and machine learning capabilities made it the first and only automatic tool for mobile development platforms for the enterprises.
The AUTOMATIC engine enables full conversion of any web application to all other devices and screen sizes in a fraction of the time. By automatically analyzing design styles of each page, the platform adjusts the layout of the UI with no human intervention. Thanks to the automatic capabilities, every change that is made to the original application is immediately reflected on all of the other devices and channels.
In addition, Zuznow offers a low-code; no-code dashboard. Designed for web developers, it enables full customization of the automatic result, assisting to further leverage the UI while adding native features that will support a continuous increase in user engagement.
These advantages, along with the fact the Zuznow requires no APIs or back-end intrusion, made it an easy choice for many enterprises, including financials, telco, public sector and education, for their consumer, partner and employee projects. In all cases our clients enjoy quick time to market and endless scalability, while never compromising on the end result. Using the Zuznow platform our clients deliver premium omni-channel apps to their customers; continuously increasing engagement and the business KPIs.
The RMAD tools market continues to grow rapidly, and Gartner predicts that “By 2020, the average medium to large enterprise will have adopted at least three rapid, high productivity development products supporting enterprise and citizen development.” With this in mind, every enterprise must evaluate and understand its current and future mobile needs, before choosing a solution.
Having one solution – like the Zuznow platform – that can help IT departments to overcome application backlogs of almost any business scenario, can help not only with current needs but also with future demand and support a strategic long-term vision for the organization.
