The ongoing digitization of our world leads to many areas of our lives being more pleasant and improved. New technologies and paradigms are emerging to support the development of software and systems. Their proliferation not only leads to higher complexity of potential solutions, but also to the problem of finding qualified people. Especially enterprises, which are constantly confronted with this problem, are increasingly considering low-code development platforms (LCDP) to allow the development of software by inexperienced and untrained citizen developers. However, at this point, non-functional requirements, such as performance and security, can require a thorough system understanding. In this work, we identify issues that may occur when citizen developers use LCDPs, allowing to deduce success factors for their implementation. Eventually, this shall help decision makers when introducing LCDPs into their environments.
