“Together, WEM APAC and S-Square LC/NC partnership enable our clients to realize digital transformation innovating quickly, easily, and cost-effectively,” said Krish Nandipati, Chief Executive Officer, S-Square.
In 2020, Gartner estimated 23% LC/NC market growth reaching $11.3 billion, $13.8 billion in 2021, and projected to grow to almost $30 billion by 2025. Further, according to Gartner, 65% of application development (in the small and medium size project segment) will be LC/NC by 2025.
When clients consider acceleration of time up to 80% faster, it is easy to understand why users of LC/NC are realizing 1/3rd TCO savings vs. traditional application development and maintenance TCO.
This is why S-Square is expanding its Application Development and Maintenance offering to include LC/NC solutions.
There is a wide spectrum of LC/NC industry offerings from lightweight to enterprise-grade and equally distributed from a cost perspective. WEM.io, introduced commercially in 2010, has been repeatedly selected in head-to-head comparisons against highly marketed industry leaders by major customers, including a large APAC country’s Department of Defense, one of the largest hospital chains in India, and multibillion-dollar European automotive companies. Evaluations repeatedly concluded WEM.io incorporates the architecture, security, feature/functionality maturity, and ease of use at optimal price point vs. market competitors, making it the repeated winner of these head-to-head comparisons. For this reason, S-Square is pleased to enter into a partnership with WEM APAC and offer the WEM.io LC/NC aPaaS to its clients.
Jeff Friedman, Vice President Delivery and Customer Success for S-Square views the potential for LC/NC differently from the traditionally marketed value of empowering “citizen developers.” Mr. Friedman sees the opportunity for IT and Business to change the structure of solution teams, increasing responsiveness to the Business. Today, Business is dependent upon IT to prioritize application development, often missing market opportunity windows. Further, developers are what Mr. Friedman calls “code linguists.” Expensive, hard to obtain/retain resources who know how to code but don’t know the Business and therefore require exhaustive requirement documents and time-intensive iterations to design/build/test/install solutions. Incorporating LC/NC, IT can optimize scarce premium resources to oversee API and microservice access to corporate Systems of Record while empowering Business to utilize techno-functional resources using LC/NC and employing Design Thinking and garage development concepts to rapidly and expertly craft market responsive Systems of Engagement solutions at the speed of business. Mr. Friedman sees S-Square helping clients initially implement such solutions to get an organization started and then either helping transition ongoing support to Business or continuing to provide this as a Managed Service. Utilizing S-Square, companies can quickly empower their organizations to deploy LC/NC with solutions such as IoT/IoMT, AI, RPA, OCR, VR/AR, Blockchain, and other typically difficult to implement technologies.
