Ease the Tension Between Business Leaders and IT Teams by Examining the Role of Quick Base and Citizen Developers

Quick Base is the leading low-code platform for rapid application development. Learn more about how to unite IT and the Business, plus read Gartner’s report on the State of Citizen Development
By Paul Young — Historically, business leaders seeking rapid deployment of applications fought an uphill battle. Organizational leaders needed faster and faster rollouts, often putting them at odds with IT teams who are tasked with managing risks associated with new technology. Today, new low-code platforms such as Intuit Quick Base allow Business Leaders and internal IT teams to come together in the spirit of operational effectiveness and problem-solving. This has given rise to a new class of workers, called “Citizen Developers,” who create Business Process Applications using low-code platforms, while still maintaining the oversight and application governance from their trusted IT teams. Learn more about why Quick Base is the go-to low-code platform for Citizen Developers, and read Gartner’s September 2015 Whitepaper “The State of Citizen Development Report, September 2015.”
