At KPMG, we see low-code as the future of application development and automation. Low-code platforms can dramatically speed creation of enterprise-class applications, automate workflow and case management activities, integrate with existing information systems, and enable a slick user experience.

Low-code automates basic processes and allows employees to quickly develop scalable business applications. Low-code can expand or enhance the functionality of existing information systems as they are shifted to a cloud-computing environment. And they can supplement or even replace existing legacy applications in the back office.

By using best-in-class technologies, KPMG is helping leading organizations advance to a connected future where low-code platforms will unify front-, middle- and back-office functions.
