Google acquired AppSheet, a no-code application development platform used by enterprises across a variety of industries.
According to Google, 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.
AppSheet further complements Google Cloud’s strategy to reimagine the application development space with a platform that helps enterprises innovate with no-code development, workflow automation, application integration, and API management as they modernize their business processes in the cloud.
AppSheet’s ability to power a range of applications – from CRM to field inspections and personalized reporting – combined with Google Cloud’s deep expertise in key verticals, will further enable digital transformation across industries like financial services, manufacturing retail, healthcare, communication, media, and entertainment.
With this acquisition, customers will be able to develop richer applications at scale that leverage not only Google Sheets and Forms, which are already popular with customers, but other top Google technologies like Android, Maps, and Google Analytics. In addition, AppSheet customers can continue to integrate with a number of cloud-hosted data sources, including Salesforce, Dropbox, AWS DynamoDB, and MySQL.
