Businesses and technology move faster than ever these days. To keep up with the speed of modern enterprises, low-code app development software, such as Quickbase and Kintone, have become the fastest path from idea to execution. However, no two low-code platforms are the same, so read on to learn some of the differences.
Cloud functionality provides the flexibility and agility to empower businesses with the speed needed to serve their customers. Currently, Kintone is virtual machine (VM)-based and only uses its own cloud infrastructure in limited geographies. Quickbase is cloud-only and uses AWS as well as other data centers, providing its customers the versatility required for every unique business.
Data is your most valuable asset. With other platforms, basic user permissions mean anyone can be given unlimited access to all of the data on each sheet. Quickbase ensures your data is protected with features like highly specified user permissions model that allows users to grant access based on a user’s role or group. In addition, Quickbase holds some of the highest compliance certifications, including SOC1 / SOC2, HIPAA, EU-US Privacy Shield, and DFARS among others.
A platform is only as good as the resources and tools that come with it. Kintone originated in Japan and has an established partner network there, however, is still growing its presence in the North American market. Quickbase has several thousand customers in the North American region by contrast and offers a substantially larger partner and integrations network, including its new release of Quickbase Pipelines.
