IMI selects OutSystems’ platform
Lisbon, Portugal - 08 September 2005
OutSystems has announced that IMI (Imagens Médicas Integradas) has selected the OutSystems Hub Edition platform to create a new central system to support the company’s daily business processes.
IMI is a medical society specialized in radiodiagnosis, with very specific IT needs. The market evolution and the growth IMI is experiencing have created the need for a central system that provides adequate tools for IMI’s business model and that is capable of responding quickly to the growing information and automation needs. The new system would have to allow a full processes reengineering in order to make them as automatic as possible.
The management systems available on the market typically require a long customization phase before being ready to serve each business specific needs. On the other hand, any change made to these systems once they are in production, is time consuming and implies highly specialized resources, which increases exponentially the system’s maintenance costs. These growing costs are traditionally the number one roadblock to the IT’s evolution and the prime reason for the existence of an IT backlog.
To respond to this challenge and create a fully customized central system IMI has selected, in March this year, the OutSystems Hub Edition platform.
The agility provided by the OutSystems Hub Edition platform, was the main reason for IMI’s choice. This platform allows for complex systems to be created considerably faster than using other technologies and for new requirements and user’s feedback to be implemented at any stage of the application’s life cycle in a very simple and fast way. This agility ensures that the system is prepared to evolve according to the business needs, while maintaining high adoption rates.
The ability to consistently create new applications to cover new business needs and the multi-channel capabilities of this platform were also pointed out as valuable advantages.
IMI - Imagens Médicas Integradas, S.A. is a medical society specialized in radiodiagnosis, with four fully equipped exam centers. The concern in having differentiated and renowned resources along with the investment in hi-tech equipment allows for a high quality and rigorous service level.
