Unlike other low-code services like Mendix, K2 or even Microsoft's PowerApps tools, Google's App Maker seems to focus mostly on Google's own services and doesn't offer built-in connectivity with third-party services like Salesforce, for example.
Targeted for use with G Suite - which provides corporate apps along the lines of Microsoft Office for e-mail, docs, spreadsheets, storage and so on - App Maker is positioned by Google as a tool for business users to create customized apps for smaller jobs below the level of CRM, ERP and SCM, such as requesting purchase orders or filing and resolving help desk tickets.
Anyone with a G Suite subscription - Business or Enterprise, as well as Education - can create what they want from a range of templates and prefab tools.
To make things easier for its enterprise customers, Google has finally pushed its App Maker application development tool out of beta.
President says it's 'possible' he'll meet with Putin this summer
In this context, Trump's comments arguably go against the United States government's official position on this matter. Asked if he would meet Putin this summer, he said, "It's possible".
"Pooling talent resources was always an ad hoc process", said EA's director of IT, Peter McAuley, "but App Maker let us quickly build an app that tracks allocation requests in detail".
Google believes that custom apps made with App Maker could save employees at companies and schools a ton of time compared to other apps. The platform further has inbuilt support for Cloud SQL (it is available only via Google Cloud Platform) so that the users can also manage the database remotely.
Google announced the general availability of its low-code App Maker tool, designed to quickly create apps for its business-oriented G Suite portfolio.
This is in contrast to relying on bigger apps for tasks, like purchasing orders and filing help desk tickets, that can not be customized. Chances are, of course, that now that App Maker is out of preview, Google will start adding more functionality to the service. Expanded OAuth Whitelisting controls mean administrators will also be able to prevent apps from running without their approval.
