Dutch Start-up Betty Blocks in Gartner Magic Quadrant


Betty Blocks, the only truly no-code platform for creating mobile, business and web applications has been named by Gartner in the April 2017 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service. 

The hpaPaaS Quadrant is a first timer. Gartner used to evaluate high-productivity platforms together with high-control platforms. This separation marks the rising of a new category that enables significant speed, cost, and technology benefits over traditional application development methods. 

"By evaluating hpaPaaS as a separate category, we feel that the possibilities and added value of high-productivity platforms are clearly recognized," says Chris Obdam, CEO at Betty Blocks. "We are rapidly growing and expanding internationally, and this inclusion is a confirmation of our vision. In today's digital world, the fast will beat the slow, no matter the size."

Young player among big names

The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluated 14 solutions this year. "We feel that we, as a relatively young player from the Netherlands, having been named in this report is pretty special. Especially when you consider how fast we achieved all this," said CEO Chris Obdam. "We believe we are now on par with leading companies in this market and that is where we want to go. It is our ambition to challenge the established order."

User friendly

"We think the placement of Betty Blocks in this Magic Quadrant report is an acknowledgment of Betty Blocks as a major player in this market. With a little affinity for IT, anyone can build an application with Betty Blocks itself. This is unique in the market and reflects our vision that we have on software development. You have a motion that says that all children need to learn to program in elementary school. We looked at it from another angle. By making programming easier you can achieve the same results," says Obdam.

Large clients

In the Netherlands, more and more organizations are discovering the benefits of Betty Blocks. The municipalities Hoorn and Zaanstad already developed their own applications on the platform, as well as a range of major companies including KPMG, Tele2, and VIVAT. Betty Blocks expects to once again double in sales and number of employees, as it did last year.
