So, you’re considering a low-code or no-code platform. That’s great! There’s a lot of choices out there on the market and we're happy to help guide you, whether you’re looking to bring a new app to market at record speed, get ahead with the cutting edge of mobile technology, or launch a full digital transformation.
If you’re looking for FileMaker alternatives, we’d like to tell you a little more about Betty Blocks’ platform so that you can make an informed decision on what’s right for you and your organization. One thing’s for sure, to build advanced applications rapidly, you need a high-productivity and user-friendly platform. Betty Blocks and FileMaker share many common goals, but there are also differences between the two platforms.
Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms 2020 sees Betty Blocks named a Visionary for the second consecutive year among 18 recognized vendors. As Gartner has positioned Betty Blocks highest for ability to execute in the Visionaries Quadrant, we’re proud of our position this year and feel we have proven our platform’s capabilities alongside our vision to democratize citizen development.
Whilst the Betty Blocks and FileMaker platforms both enable faster development by utilizing drag-and-drop interfaces, at Betty Blocks, we’ve made a commitment to being the #1 citizen development platform. What does this mean? Citizen development is increasingly becoming an essential strategy for enterprises that want to become future-proof and achieve their innovation goals. These organizations need a platform and a vendor that is 100% dedicated to citizen development, that lives and breaths it, and that is recognized by top experts for doing so.
Whether your organization requires a low-code or a no-code platform – which depends on your unique needs – isn’t the key question for us. Rather, we believe the question is: How will your organization use citizen development to achieve its goals?

Sidenote: We understand that, particularly for experienced developers, FileMaker alternatives that utilize open-source technology may be preferable. Like FileMaker, Betty Blocks utilizes closed-source technology because of the benefits it affords our customers. This is particularly true in terms of the platform's ease of use, and makes the most sense for enterprise-grade citizen development solutions.
This means that whilst citizen developers can bring applications to the minimum viable product (MVP) stage by dragging and dropping pre-coded blocks, experienced developers can customize these blocks or even build new ones as required.
You may be experiencing difficulty innovating because your needs and ideas fall to the bottom of IT’s backlog, and it takes too long to see results. Maybe your organization is even suffering from a shortage of professional developers. Or, do you find yourself with ideas that are too big for your budget?
Whether you’re focused on a single application or a complete digital transformation, it’s important to know which platform can provide you with the best features and service depending on your needs, so that you can thrive in the new era of application development.
