Why Your Team Won’t Low-Code: Pandora’s Black Box

When I talk low-code platforms with developers, they assure me that they are treacherous black boxes from hell. And they can't afford to run mission-critical services on something they can't control. This logic seems sound – at first. But, it's really not. I'll explain why by shining a different light on black boxes so your team can take comfort in low-code platforms instead of fearing them.

What Is Low-Code?

"What is low-code?" At a recent software and IT conference, a presenter asked people to raise their hands if they knew the answer. No one did. It’s time to change that. Low-code is the combine harvester of the software industry. It lets us deliver value more quickly and more reliably.

A Custom Physician Portal: Why OutSystems Low-Code Platform Is the Cure

When US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) wanted to replace its legacy physician portal, it looked to OutSystems for help building a new physician portal. USACS is the nation’s leading physician-owned provider of integrated acute care.

Why Your Team Won’t Low-Code: Job Loss

In mid-2016, I evaluated the upcoming OutSystems 10 release as a native mobile developer. I knew little of web development and nothing of low-code platforms. After slogging through tutorials, it hit me. I was creating complex products without as much as a blink. And this tool was significantly easier to learn than traditional software development. I began to get excited! A platform this powerful could accelerate the development process, bring products to market at startling rates, and replace— me!?... Excitement faded. Fear set in.

The Low-Code Development Market: Fragmented and Full of Promise

Google recently announced a new low-code solution for developers and we welcome them to the market! They join OutSystems and other vendors (see Oracle earlier in 2016) who recognize that IT teams are struggling with huge backlogs and resource challenges and need a faster, better way to deliver apps.

As a result, the low-code market is booming, and ZDNet predicts it will be a $10 billion industry by 2019. But let’s not celebrate too quickly. (more…)

Why You Should Choose an Enterprise-Grade Low-Code Platform

This is the second installment of our Leading with Low-Code Blog Series.

OutSystems’ Data Model View – One of Many Views any Enterprise-Grade Low-Code Platform Should Offer

In a recent BrainBlog post I discussed the spectrum of low-code/no-code platforms. At the no-code end of this spectrum are tools for business users to create a variety of business applications via straightforward, drag-and-drop style interactions.

At the other extreme, low-code platforms like OutSystems focus on accelerating and streamlining the work of professional developers, as they build enterprise-grade applications.

Fair enough – but what do we mean by enterprise-grade? (more…)

OutSystems: Low Code for High-Performing Engineering Teams

As the “low-code” platform market explodes, many non-technical employees of today’s organizations are able to build enterprise-class applications by assembling pre-built components using simple, drag and drop capabilities.

This “citizen developer” movement, however, is only a part of the low-code story. In fact, the platforms in this market fall on a spectrum from true “no code” environments suitable for non-technical users on the one hand, to platforms that help bona fide developers accelerate and simplify the creation and deployment of applications that require custom coding.
