Innovative educational experiences are the norm for students of the Terry College of Business at The University of Georgia (UGA). Founded in 1785 as the first state-chartered university in America, UGA prides itself on being a premier higher education institution that nurtures the nation’s intellectual, cultural and environmental heritage.
Given UGA’s rich history and commitment to innovation, it’s no wonder that Department of Management Information Systems Lecturer, Jeffrey Howells, selected OutSystems as the rapid application delivery platform for his technology course for business analysts.
“Graduates entering the workforce must have a clear understanding for how each business function contributes to an organization’s viability and bottom line,” said Howells. “Productive, efficient management of business and IT teams is critical. Leveraging real-world technologies and best practices in the classroom empowers students with the ability to address challenges and make significant contributions as highly skilled employees.”
These sentiments echo throughout the global business and information technology community. The future of software development is not in the evolution of new coding languages. It’s in the ability for enterprise, web and mobile applications to be easily developed and maintained by a range of users who, simply, understand what the applications mean to end users and how to customize them when necessary.
