Description

Market research institutes forecast a growing relevance of Low-Code Development Platforms (LCDPs) for organizations. Moreover, the rising number of scientific publications in recent years shows the increasing interest of the academic community. However, an overview of current research focuses and fruitful future research topics is missing. This paper conducts a first scientific literature review on LCDPs to close this gap. The socio-technical system (STS) model, which categorizes information systems into a social and a technical system, serves to analyze the identified 32 publications. Most of current research focuses on the technical system (technology or task). In contrast, only three publications explicitly target the social system (structure or people). Hence, this paper enables future research to address the identified research gaps. Additionally, practitioners gain awareness of technical and social aspects involved in the development, implementation, and application of LCDPs.
