Google launches its low-code software development tool App Maker

"With App Maker, you can shape company processes like requesting purchase orders, or you can speed up business workflows like filing and resolving help desk tickets, as if you designed and built the processes yourself", App Maker product manager Geva Rechav wrote in a blog post.

To do this, App Maker provides users with a low-code application development environment that lets you build applications through a straightforward drag and drop environment.

The App Maker can also be utilized by the software engineers to help them save time when they are building complicated apps.

"Why? Because their IT budget centres on big enterprise apps like CRM, ERP and SCM, and beyond those priorities, IT executives' attention focuses on security and governance". Google has announced that the App maker tool will now be available for all it's business, education and enterprise customers.

As it moves into GA, App Maker is also getting a couple of updates: First, G Suite administrators will have visibility over these custom apps, including oversight of owners, usage metrics and OAuth permissions. For example, video game publisher Electronic Arts used an early version of App Maker to create a custom app to help streamline its capital resourcing needs. App Maker is a low-code environment developers can use to build custom business apps.

One of them is the built-in support for Cloud SQL (Structured Query Language) to assist in managing databases remotely.
