According to the Forrester report, “Kissflow is elegant, intuitive, and process focused” and “its streamlined developer experience for process automation and workflow is superior, and new UX development tools balance flexibility and ease.” The Forrester analyst author added, “Kissflow is an excellent choice for firms enabling democratized process automation at scale and a solid bet for broader future use based on its roadmap and recent investments.” In a separate 2024 report, The Low-Code And Digital Process Automation Market, 2023 To 2028,  Forrester estimates that the combined low-code and digital process automation (DPA) market reached $13.2 billion by the end of 2023, growing 21% since 2019.
