Niche platforms are designed to satisfy specific corporate demands, such as business process management (BPM), event management, and even customer relationship management (CRM). Low-code is a feature for such products, not a competitive bid. These platforms provide a scaled-down IDE visual production that enables the design of applications that function within the context and architecture of the software itself. These solutions are purpose-designed for a specific use case and are good for what they were developed for-but they do not fit the entire business range of use-cases for digital transformation.
