Gartner Trend: Democratization

Democratization of technology means providing people with easy access to technical or business expertise without extensive (and costly) training.

What is Democratization of Software?

Democratization of software refers to the trend towards making software tools and platforms more widely available and easier to use, so that a wider range of people can use them to create and build things. This can be accomplished through a number of different means, such as offering software as a service (SaaS), making software available for free or at a low cost, or developing user-friendly interfaces that require little or no technical expertise to use. The goal of democratization is often to make it easier for people to access and use software tools, regardless of their technical background or resources. This can have the effect of enabling more people to create and innovate, which can drive economic growth and social progress.
