At a Glance
How They Differ
Drives business productivity by enabling builders/citizen developers to create, automatically deploy, and update simple to complex business applications, for themselves and their teams without any coding skills.
Designed to improve the productivity of existing IT development resources and empower advanced builders to accelerate app delivery for more architecturally complex applications.
Where They Fit
Features intuitive wizards and menus that walk “builders/citizen developers” through the entire building process to create a wide range of apps encompassing everything from data capture, tracking, and reporting to evolving or innovative processes.
Leverages visual modeling tools and pre-built components that provide a faster, easier, and less code-intensive way to build applications that require higher control development, data permissions, and app deployment; business process modeling; a pixel perfect user interface; etc.
Visual configuration using drag and drop or point and click functionality takes the place of coding. For example, a user simply needs to point to a data source to track and click to select.
Coding and scripting is required to dictate how such things as security, connectivity, and integration will be built into and work within an application.
