This IDC Market Perspective quantifies the worldwide population of low-code developers in 2021 and segments that population by dimensions such as full time and part time and the three IDC regions of the Americas, EMEA, and APJ. "Low-code developers are not solely or even predominantly part-time application developers, who are otherwise known as LOB developers. 40% of low-code developers are full-time developers, whereas 33% are part-time developers. The strong penetration of low-code application development tools among full-time developers illustrates how the demographics of developers have already started to change such that developers are no longer defined by their proficiency in coding but are rather defined by their ability to build digital solutions," said Arnal Dayaratna, research director, Software Development at IDC. "Enterprises would do well to begin creating protocols for collaboration between full-time developers and part-time application developers as a means of maximizing the potential of low-code development and its attendant ecosystem of developer tools."
