These are represented in the figure below.

Criteria Group



A. Business Requirements

Usage Scenario & Use-Cases

Enterprises must begin at examining the business scenario and use case(s). Wizergos opines that organizations can use rapid application development tools for the following 5 usage scenarios and use-cases: 1. Industry vertical specific applications (e.g. core banking) 2. Technology specific use cases (such as Data Visualization) 3. Enterprise Application Ecosystem specific (for instance SAP applications, applications, etc.) 4. No-Code Platforms (for very simple applications such as forms, approval workflows, etc.) 5. Low- Code Platforms (for complex, Enterprise use cases requiring web and mobile applications with integrations and other emerging technology additions).

B. Low-Code Capabilities

Core Platform Capabilities

Richness, depth and capability of the development environment –including integration with databases and systems of record, workflow automation, deployment, scaling

Speed to deliver business applications

Level of automation for development, testing, and deployment of applications.

Flexibility to customize apps

Speed to change apps as needs and requirements evolve

Multimodal and multidevice capability

Ability to quickly build multimodal (Chatbots, Voicebots, etc.) and multidevice applications (mobile apps, web apps, etc.)

Developer friendliness

Adherence to standards and developer “friendliness” – including ease of adding custom code anywhere in the back-end and front-end

Ease and speed (cost) of learning to become a proficient developer (availability of certifications and training from the vendor)

C. Pricing and Value Considerations

Deployment model flexibility

Deployment of Low-Code platform may have an impact on scalability, performance, and security which will ultimately drive conversations or possible concerns around Low-Code value for enterprises. This may also impact pricing of the platform.

Pricing model flexibility

D. Low-Code Vendor Reputation, Financial Health, and Partnerships


Branding and reputation of the Low-Code platform provider (years of existence, no of clients, general client and industry feedback and satisfaction, strong field presence, strong support team, etc.)


It is critical to note of services partnerships of Low-Code platform providers (implementation and support partners). Availability of partners and skilled professionals is crucial for the success of a Low-Code project, and esp. a Low-Code CoE.

Financial Health

The platform must be in sound financial health (with solid KPIs around revenue, profitability, viable cash flows, capitalization, etc.)

In conclusion, selecting the right low-code platform for your enterprise is a critical decision that requires careful consideration of various factors. By following the guidelines outlined in this article, enterprises can ensure that they choose a platform that aligns with their unique needs, objectives, and long-term strategic goals.

Remember to prioritize scalability, customization capabilities, security features, integration options, and vendor support when evaluating potential low-code solutions. Additionally, seek input from key stakeholders, conduct thorough research, and leverage industry insights and best practices to inform your decision-making process.

With a well-informed approach to low-code platform selection, enterprises can unlock the full potential of this transformative technology and drive innovation, agility, and success in the digital era.
