Nearly half (47%) of those surveyed currently use LCNC in their organizations. Of the 35% who are not currently using LCNC, one in five (20%) said they intend to adopt the technology in the next 12 months.
Most respondents are using LCNC to automate workflows (17%), create new applications (15%), speed up development time (15%) and automate data collection and reporting (14%). Another 10% of respondents implement the platforms to reduce the burden on developers and to connect and create inter-departmental applications, workflows and business processes.
The survey revealed that the ability to utilize LCNC to provide business solutions provides many benefits to organizations.
