"NoCode BPM enables non-technical resources and build, deploy, and maintain their own BPM solutions. Low-Code BPM is such that shadow IT can do the same. The Test of the machine is it's functional interaction with the humans who use it. There isn't any other test."
-Max Young

"Low-code is something I can see as realistic in platforms that need to accommodate a mix of structured and unstructured work. In order to be able to evolve an inventory of processes that build competitive advantage, you need more than 'canned' processes."
-Karl Walter Keirstead

"Modern BPM Platforms a.k.a Low-Code BPM Platforms have not only simplified application development but also reduced development efforts manifold."
-Kritika Pandey

"Low-code/no-code is an approach to building software applications, using domain-specialised (often 'model-driven') tools. Some of these applications can be used to support BPM initiatives. But many of them aren't, at least not on purpose."

"When talking about no-code or low-code BPM, the customer is also thinking about a quick deploy of its processes, without complex installations or configurations, and most important, with the ability to iteratively improve their business process. "
-Juan J Moreno

"Low-code BPM is the code of business."
-Boris Zinchenko

"One fear you have with low/no-code solutions is the inevitable application sprawl that will happen as users start spewing out solutions like we've seen with Excel, Access, and SharePoint."
-Kevin Beddingfield
