Forging the future of application development

Transforming software development with AI and machine learning

The OutSystems.AI Program is dedicated to infusing artificial intelligence into the entire application lifecycle to smooth delivery processes so you can deploy complex portfolios with confidence. OutSystems is setting the standard in AI-powered development with its industry-leading AI Mentor System. Our vision for the future of AI-assisted rapid software development includes:

  • Instant app generation using conversational prompts: Instead of writing code, developers will use natural language inputs to describe an application, and generative AI does the heavy lifting.
  • AI-powered app editor: OutSystems provides full-stack suggestions, from data to UI, that developers use to build and change apps in an experience that’s virtually error-free.
  • Real-time visual representations of app changes: To eliminate the “black box problem” created by generative AI, the OutSystems visual language will make it easy to validate the output of generative AI.
  • Extensive ecosystem of connectors: Customers can easily build AI-powered apps in a matter of minutes with connectors to common services from Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and other third-party providers.

The new OutSystems connector for ChatGPT allows your applications to easily harness the power of generative AI. You can use its capabilities to elevate your software offerings, unlock new possibilities with interactive conversational experiences, and stand out from the competition.

The wisdom of millions of apps and patterns at your fingertips

Save time when creating new or editing existing apps with expertise learned from over 25 million anonymized patterns and apps that you can add to your logic flows. If you’re a development pro, you have more time to develop your killer app, and if you’re new, you’ll get the guidance that helps you learn.

“Instead of having to go to multiple places to find what I need and drag-and-drop it to the flow, it’s just two clicks, which is really good.”

Zero friction

Getting stuck, finding errors, and racking up technical debt can hinder your development and extend lead times unnecessarily. OutSystems removes these barriers to your progress. If you are stuck, OutSystems AI mentors provide just-in-time help, orientation, and knowledge. You can keep working without asking a tech lead for assistance.

To address the knowledge gaps that slow developers down, OutSystems can automatically generate a pattern or pre-built component adapted to the specific use case. It also uses AI to analyze code and detects problems, alerting the developer in the IDE or a dashboard.

Guided and automated development

For each step in your application flows, OutSystems uses AI and ML to predict what you need to do next and accurately recommends the best option. It puts your choice into the visual IDE, often fully configured and adapted to your own business logic and context.

This guided and automated development works anywhere in a flow, in any flow: web, mobile, reactive web, services, business processes, you name it. Whether you need to create or edit logic in your application, the assistant is there for you.

“I just tried this for the first time, and what used to take five minutes of searching and a lot of mouse movement took about a second. The AI feature guessed exactly what I wanted to do! It is impressive. It helps me prevent repetitive strain injury symptoms, and because I use the mouse less, I can continue working for longer periods of time.”

Validated application portfolios

Because of the AI built into the OutSystems platform, developers and teams can build and expand a portfolio of applications without creating technical debt. Intelligent architectural recommendations and AI-driven architecture refactoring tackle problems early. After analyzing an application’s implementation and execution metrics, it produces recommended solutions. You can then put performance, security, architecture, and UX improvements in place.

Think of the freedom this delivers--developers can run wild, and OutSystems will automatically look for certain patterns you might have accidentally dropped in the code.

"Our AI platform delivers orders of magnitude more efficiency for dev teams. Unlike other vendors who happily check the box on AI and speed, we know that’s just the surface. Our deep investment in an AI-backed platform, with strict oversight and built-in governance, helps ensure every app meets the highest standards of enterprise readiness.”
