Industry Analyst Firm Butler Group Highly Recommends OutSystems’ Agile Platform

Latest Butler Group Technology Audit states that most organizations will benefit and find the Agile Platform “A Persuasive Proposition”

San Ramon, CA - 14 July 2009


OutSystems®, provider of the industry-leading Agile Platform, today announced that leading analyst firm Butler Group recently released a new Technology Audit report that highly recommends OutSystems’ Agile Platform (OAP) for companies across industries seeking versatility and fast turn-around, especially when faced with rapidly changing business requirements or long project backlogs and limited in-house resources.

Butler Group’s Technology Audit on OutSystems concluded, “Butler Group believes that most businesses can benefit from using OAP in their IT development projects. When coupled with the suitability of the tool within an Agile way of development, this makes the offering from OutSystems a persuasive proposition.”

Butler Group highlighted the Agile Platform’s ability to considerably reduce the problem of bridging the IT and business cultural divides since “the degree of automation in OAP raises the level of business-aware personnel who can be trained to use the system and develop applications far closer to the heart of business requirements than with traditional software development teams.”

Butler Group also agrees with the OutSystems claim “that most significant benefits will be realised in the form of reduced application maintenance costs.”

Butler Group also wrote that the Agile Platform’s ability to target either .NET or Java from one single application is attractive to businesses with heterogeneous environments, creating the flexibility and freedom for specialized business logic or components deployment that doesn’t restrict organizations by the automated system.
