June 04, 2021

Creatio has released its highly anticipated and first-ever IT, digital, and business leader survey report titled: “The State of Low-code/No-code 2021.” The report provides senior level decision makers at companies of all sizes a look into how various organizations around the world are facing the digital transformation pressures of today, where exactly they are on that journey, and the role of low-code/no-code as an innovation catalyst. 

The global survey includes responses from 1,000+ IT, digital and business leaders from various industries and more than 90 countries spanning the Americas, EMEA and APAC. The respondents have either adopted or are considering adopting low-code/no-code technologies as part of their digital transformation roadmap. Creatio’s research showed overwhelming support between the success of digital transformation and adoption of low- code/no-code technology. The State of Low-code/No-code Report distills Creatio’s survey results into actionable takeaways for IT and business leaders making strategic and tactical decisions about low-code/no-code technology to drive competitive advantage. 


  • Business leaders line up on the promise of low-code/no-code as an enabler of digital transformation, but a lack of experience with low-code platforms is the biggest obstacle to low-code adoption, according to 60% of respondents. 

  • The key benefit to low-code adoption is accelerated time-to-market (38%) followed by reduced app development cost (34%) indicating that innovation is prioritized over cost reduction when it comes to driving competitive advantage. 

  • Low-code tools are currently being adopted primarily for custom app development inside separate business units such as sales and marketing, service, human resources, or finance. 

  • Despite COVID-19 and the global pandemic, 95% of respondents pushed forward with their digital transformation initiatives. 

To find out more about what business and IT leaders think including the core barrier to digital transformation, what region of the world is most quickly adopting low-code/no-code technology, and the percentage of companies that said they planned to completely pause digital transformation initiatives for the remainder of 2021, download the full report here
