Earlier this week, Google announced that it’s buying the no-code platform
AppSheet. The price of the deal was not shared, but the move marks Google’s continued investment into the no-code/low-code space (the company launched
a low-code application development tool for G Suite in 2018).
AppSheet will help Google give companies a simple way to build mobile apps without writing code, instead pulling data from spreadsheets (like Google Sheets), forms (like Google Forms) and databases to build apps.
“The demand for faster processes and automation in today’s competitive landscape requires more business applications to be built with greater speed and efficiency. However, many companies lack the resources to address these challenges. This acquisition helps enterprises empower millions of citizen developers to more easily create and extend applications without the need for professional coding skills.” - Google Cloud vice president Amit Zavery wrote in a blog post about the acquisition.
More than 200,000 apps have reportedly been deployed using AppSheet to date, with over 18,000 monthly active app creators building apps on the platform.
