Truth be told...
Be wary of 'citizen coders' or whatever the term is.  The enterprise will go for whatever makes them the most profits.  High price coder, or lower priced citizen coder?  High priced fully coded item or lower priced Low Code item?  It may take a few years, but the lower priced will kick the door down, even if it's to the detriment of the enterprise.  Profit is king in the enterprise:  Profit will remain the king for as long as it can.

Low-Code Platform - Zero-Code Cloud
Thanks Clare! We do have a shortage of development talent, and some analysts are putting that gap at 1 million by 2020. (Pay attention high-schoolers!) At K-Rise Systems, we have a low-code platform for enterprise applications and portals, and recently we launched Zero-Code Cloud so that anyone can try it free, to build and prototype enterprise apps. 

Theoretically a citizen developer could learn and use this platform. However, due to the complex nature of enterprise level applications, and the logic and experience needed to architect them, we recommend a systems architect or developer use our platform. That's when you see speeds that are 5x to 10x faster on low-code vs. hard-code platforms. Down the line a citizen developer could apply for citizenship on Zero-Code Cloud, but we recommend an IT professional sponsors them for a while! :-)

A number of promising new platforms
SomeDude8, some of the tools would include OutSystems, Mendix and Kony, as the promising newcomers. Salesforce's App Cloud is also a low code environment and good for working with Salesforce application data. OutSystems is a repeat winner of the Codie award, 2015 and 2016.
