Thu, 22nd Feb 2024

Kissflow, fresh from being recognised as a strong force within the Forrester Wave report on the Low-Code Platform for Citizen Developers, announced its ascend to the coveted 'Gold Tier' recognition in the Project Management Institute (PMI) Citizen Developer Education Suite. The suite aims to offer guiding principles, best practices, and educational resources for companies aiming to integrate citizen development into their business. The award is the highest possible achievement within PMI's prestigious programme.

Dinesh Varadarajan, the Chief Product Officer at Kissflow, stated, "We strongly believe that Citizen Development is the future, and earning the PMI Gold Tier Certification further reaffirms our commitment to democratise low-code no-code technology."

Exploring the future implications of this, he added, "IDC projects that there will be 750 million cloud-native applications created worldwide by 2025, more than the number of applications created in the past 40 years. This is the opportunity that lies ahead of us, and having a structured framework to build a Citizen Developer Centre of Excellence will help us further the mission of unlocking the potential within every customer organisation."

Kissflow managed to earn this award by aligning with PMI's Global Citizen Developer Standards, thereby showcasing its dedication to the safe and widespread adoption of low-code and no-code technology. The organisation had to fulfil multiple requirements to reach the Gold certification. Among these were certifying the workforce on Citizen Developer courses, providing customer references and case studies, and exhibiting thought leadership through related webinars.

Claire Sanders, Manager of PMI Citizen Developer, expressed excitement about Kissflow reaching the Gold tier of the Citizen Developer Partner Program. She praised Kissflow's commitment to meeting program standards and criteria, showcasing its leadership in the citizen development space. Sanders emphasised the joint effort to promote the global adoption of secure and scalable low-code and no-code solutions, empowering businesses to succeed in today's digital age.

Sanders noted, "We are thrilled that Kissflow has achieved the Gold tier of the Citizen Developer Partner Program. Their dedication to meeting our standards through our training and criteria demonstrates their leadership in the citizen development arena. Together, we look forward to advancing the global adoption of safe and scalable low-code and no-code solutions, providing businesses with the tools they need to thrive in the digital era."

Underpinning the worldwide digital transformation efforts of organisations is Kissflow's low-code, no-code platform. Several global and Fortune 500 companies, recognising Kissflow's merits, have opted to use this platform.

2023 was a milestone year for Kissflow, garnering mentions across Gartner's 2023 Competitive Landscape Report for Business Process Automation, being hailed as an established vendor in 2023 Gartner Peer Insights Voice of Customer for Enterprise Low-code Application Platforms, and getting acknowledged in the Low-code Development Platforms for Citizen Developers Landscape Q4 by Forrester.
