What Do You Call Something That’s Not Like Anything Else?
We recently found out that Gartner recognized us as an “MXDP” Leader in their 2020 Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms. We thought that was great. We also thought, here’s another name that people use to try to describe the breadth of what we are doing at OutSystems, and none of them quite work yet. Looking back in history, original new things can be hard to label. It took more than ten years for the name “car” to come forward as the way to talk about the horseless carriages that were popping up in major cities around the world.
We have a pretty ambitious mission—and recognition like we are grateful to receive from Gartner in different Magic Quadrants is fantastic. But what really drives us is our customers, and with all of the challenges 2020 has brought, we have seen some amazing things happen.
At the End of the Day—OutSystems Customers Deliver
Multi-year or even multi-month delivery and innovation cycles has become a threat to business competitiveness and viability. At the end of the day, organizations are looking for continuous delivery and continuous innovation. That’s why we have been inspired by the stories we hear from our customers about how they’re bucking the trend and delivering real results with our platform during this ongoing crisis.
In just four weeks, Humana, a U.S. health insurance company, created a new AI-powered service for rapidly connecting users to the information they care about most. The customer-facing app and full suite of back office solutions lets members self-serve to find nearby COVID testing sites with the most accurate information on over 8,000 locations.
And after the US government opened calls for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan applications, Lucro created an application in under a week that made it easier for borrowers to fill out the complex forms and simplified the related underwriting, servicing and documentation services they provide. The company has now processed more than 7,000 PPP loan applications and funded over $110 million worth of loans, competing head to head with larger lenders in the government loan program.
These are just two of the many examples of companies who leveraged OutSystems and were able to pivot quickly. But how were these and many other companies able to deliver such critical and complex solutions in such a short timeframe?
The Experts (Our Customers) Have Spoken—And the Analysts Agree
