Google Announces Business Application Platform for No-Code Application Development

This week at Google’s Cloud Next virtual conference, Google Cloud Platform is outlining a new solution aimed at enabling citizen developers to automate processes and create applications in a no-code environment. The new Business Application Platform intends to leverage APIs to help enterprise customers modernize legacy apps and create new business channels. 

Google Business Application Platform will lean on existing Google products in order to support hybrid and multi-cloud implementations, AI/ ML lifecycle management, and collaboration functionality. 

Amit Zavery, VP/GM and Head of Platform for Google Cloud, summarized the goal of the new product:

“Our mission is to develop a unified solution that empowers both technical developers as well as business developers with the ability to create and extend applications, build and automate business workflows, and connect and modernize legacy applications.”

This new platform will have security features that include customer-managed Encryption keys and support for VPC-SC. The Business Application Platform is an ongoing project with a roadmap that hints at future functionality including a newly announced API Gateway.
