“The Richest Platform for Business Developers”

Caspio is one of only 12 low-code platforms Forrester found to meet the comprehensive criteria and market requirements for this report. In an extensive evaluation process, each vendor was scored based on Forrester’s independent research and analysis, customer reference surveys and criteria-based product demonstrations.

In Caspio’s vendor summary, Forrester concluded:

“Caspio, a pioneer, has quietly built the richest platform for business developers” with “no glaring holes in its product.”


Since our founding in 2000, Caspio has empowered companies to become more agile, customer-centric and market-responsive — freeing themselves from complex programming tasks and long project backlogs. We’ve been perfecting our low-code platform for nearly two decades and today we serve over 15,000 customers from small to medium sized businesses to global enterprises. In the report, Forrester states:


“Over an 18-year journey that started with data-driven web and departmental apps, Caspio has quietly built a product that provides both deep functionality for enterprise apps and an easy start for business developers.”


“Customers Laud the Product Overall”

The growing appeal of low-code lies in its ability to democratize application development outside of technical roles, empowering the person closest to the problem to solve the problem. According to Forrester, “digital businesses’ demand for ever more automation, ever more quickly, requires more minds and hands producing applications.”

Caspio’s unique ability to meet the needs of both non-technical users and enterprise IT departments is a testament to Caspio’s history as a low-code pioneer. The platform’s visual development tools are the result of many years of design, development and continuous improvement — always providing guidance and guardrails to shield business users from the complexities of building enterprise-grade applications.

Visual development tools enable users to build applications 10-20x faster than traditional programming methods.
