Rapid app development has surged since the introduction of low-code application platforms.
Where before, developing apps was a costly and time-consuming process, in recent years it’s become a much more achievable goal for organizations, particularly SMBs.
In fact, 70% of IT leaders have found that low-code platforms are more affordable than traditional development methods, and 72% of companies with low-code projects state that they were completed in three months or fewer, as opposed to a more typical development time of six months or even years.
According to a Forrester Research survey, 80% of IT respondents cited the ability to meet requirements within budget as the biggest benefit of low-code development.
New technologies have enabled rapid app development in today’s environment in a way that was simply not possible for businesses in previous years.
This is just as well, because custom applications are more important than ever—for internal and customer-facing purposes. The manufacturer needs an app for factory compliance just as much as the online retailer needs one for their customer service.

And with that in mind, it’s important for businesses to understand what the process of rapid app development looks like; especially if they’ve already been on the wrong end of a bad software development project before and are skeptical.
We’ve put together this infographic to show you how the entire process works, from start to finish, in simple and easy-to-understand steps. In 2020, there’s very little stopping any business developing a custom app—which is why the market for low-code has risen from $6.5 billion in 2019 to an expected $21.2 billion in 2022.
Between 2018 and 2023, more than 500 million apps will be created. That’s more than the previous 40 years combined.
