Low-code dev platforms have gained momentum in recent years, in large part because they promise to shorten what’s otherwise typically a lengthy app development cycle. According to data from analytics firm GlobalData, there was a fivefold increase in VC funding into low-code dev platforms from 2021 to 2022. But low-code isn’t going anywhere, as evidenced most recently by low-code dev startup FlutterFlow’s financing round. Leveraging Flutter, Google’s open source UI creation toolkit, FlutterFlow generates what Abel describes as “clean” and “maintainable” app source code. There’s no shortage of competition in the market for low-code app dev platforms.

Salesforce has announced plans to acquire Spiff, a platform that automates commission management for sales teams. The deal also constitutes the latest in a line of ecosystem companies that Salesforce has eventually brought in-house. Back in September Salesforce acquired Airkit, a low-code platform for building AI customer service agents. And similar to Spiff, Airkit was also available on AppExchange. So it’s clear that Salesforce continues to see tried-and-tested ecosystem companies as a safe bet for its M&A endeavors, with “low-code” playing a key factor too.
