An Enterprise Low-code application platform (LCAP) provides rapid application development and deployment using low-code and no-code techniques such as declarative, model-driven application design and development together with the simplified one-button deployment of applications. An LCAP typically creates metadata and interprets that metadata at runtime and abstracts the underlying server infrastructure for ease of use; many also allow optional procedural programming extensions. LCAP supports: • UI capabilities via responsive web and mobile apps • Orchestration or choreography of pages, business process, and decisions or business rules • Built-in database • "One button" deployment of applications
The IT process automation (ITPA) tool market is composed of solutions that automate IT processes (with increasing cross-functional organizational requirements) to improve operational efficiency, mitigate operational risk, reduce costs, offset the negative effects of complexity and improve standards enforcement. ITPA tools function primarily at the IT services level. They coordinate the execution of work, sequence the timing of subordinate workflow and scripts, and orchestrate the delivery of multiple tasks and services across different IT groups and models.
