3 Wizards and a Baby Deliver Magical Native App Publishing

Once upon a time, OutSystems users couldn’t build native mobile apps. Our tech stack was focused entirely on web releases and responsive design. For the higher-ups who dreamed up OutSystems 10, the golden goose was native app development. And they wanted the publishing experience to remain instant.

Empowering the Citizen Developer with Self-Service IT

This article originally appeared on the Intellyx BrainBlog, Feb. 9, 2016

Enterprises across all industries are in the midst of difficult, bet-the-company changes we call digital transformation. And yet, there remains broad confusion about the scope of the word digital.

While the rise of mobile technologies are the impetus for many such transformations, digital goes well beyond the choice of user device. In fact, digital transformation reflects the fact that customer preferences and behavior are driving enterprise technology decisions – and such technology decisions impact the entire organization, from innovative, customer-focused efforts all the way to the traditional IT organization.

The Departmental Web App – From Niche to Mission-Critical

There’s no pattern for innovation in an enterprise – while R&D might be responsible for driving new products, someone in logistics or facilities might think up the multi-million dollar selling feature as opposed to a product-design PhD.  The same goes for innovation with corporate IT – new applications aren’t always driven by developers but often by the specific necessities of a certain business unit, whether it’s sales, HR or management.
