Placing a bet on the red-hot low-code/no-code market, Google LLC today debuted its new Business Application Platform category of software encompassing application programming interface management, no-code application development, process automation and business analytics. The platform is based on technology Google picked early this year with the acquisition of AppSheet and is intended to make it easy and simple to build applications without writing any code, which is different from low-code.

The company said it will add new features that leverage Google Cloud, hybrid and multicloud architectures, artificial intelligence and machine learning development platforms, lifecycle management, security and productivity/collaboration tools.

2020. Google buys no code application development startup AppSheet
Google beefs up its cloud capabilities with the acquisition of Appsheet, which sells tools that enable so-called “citizen developers” to build data-based applications. AppSheet sells a “no code” application development platform that gives Google an easy way to help companies create mobile apps without needing to hire teams of developers. It works by pulling data from a spreadsheet or other source and using the field and column names as the basis for a new app. Appsheet was a tempting target for Google because it already integrates with its products such as Sheets and Forms. The platform works with other well-known services too, including Amazon Web Services Inc.’s DynamoDB database, Box, Salesforce and Microsoft Office 365. Google said Appsheet would continue to support those platforms after the acquisition has been completed.
