Quickbase was recently recognized in Gartner’s April 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service (hpaPaaS). We’re very excited to be acknowledged by Gartner again; last year we were recognized in the March 2016 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Platform as a Service (aPaaS).
The Evolving aPaaS Market
Gartner defines the aPaaS market as one “that supports application development, deployment, and execution in the cloud.” Gartner identifies 2 classes of aPaaS: “High-productivity” PaaS supports declarative, model-driven design and one-step deployment. Such services typically create metadata and interpret that metadata at runtime; many allow optional procedural programming extensions. Various types of PaaS (xPaaS) support high productivity, whereas others support “high-control” features, primarily via APIs and third-generation languages (3GLs), with transparent access to the underlying infrastructure.
Out of the many vendors that provide high-productivity aPaaS as a public cloud service, we were one of the 14 selected in Gartner’s new hpaPaaS report.
We believe that as a business-user-centric no-code hpaPaaS platform, Quickbase’s positioning by Gartner in the “Niche Players” quadrant aligns well with our core strategy of providing our customers with a platform that’s built for business professionals from the ground up while offering their IT department an appropriate level of governance and control.
