NASCIO Issues Primer on States’ Use of Low-Code / No-Code Software

Lexington, Ky., Thursday, September 30, 2021 — The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) today released The Need for Speed: Why State CIOs are Turning to Low-Code and No-Code Software Development. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of low-code / no-code software development by states by providing the business case for how this technology can be used. The publication, based on extensive interviews with both state chief information officers (CIOs) and NASCIO private sector members, outlines some of those use cases, the upsides, the downsides and strategies for success.

Denis Goulet, NASCIO President and Commissioner and CIO for the State of New Hampshire, commented, “State CIOs are constantly looking for ways to innovate and streamline operations in state government. Low-code / no-code platforms have proven themselves as a way to lower costs, fill gaps in the state IT workforce and respond to citizen needs much more quickly.”
