What's New in Version 5.1

Custom application development has historically been an expensive and time-consuming process, all but limiting it to large enterprises. Our goal with this version of Agile Platform was to drive down the cost and time investment typically associated with custom development, making it accessible to organizations of any size.

Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems

 

OutSystems, today the immediate availability of version 5.1 of the Agile Platform for enterprise web application development.

Version 5.1 was designed to address several key use case scenarios including:
  • Enable low cost custom application development for departments or small organizations;
  • Ability to quickly create departmental applications to centralize and secure dispersed data commonly housed in standard office spreadsheets; and
  • Swifter delivery of information-centric enterprise-class applications, reducing development time to days.

Introducing IntelliWarp™ Technology: This version provides new IntelliWarp technology that speeds up the delivery of web apps to ‘warp’ speed. In a matter of hours, application development teams can build a complete working web application without writing any code. The new context-aware, pattern-based technology allows developers to deliver high quality solutions with unprecedented speed. Early testing shows version 5.1 to help development teams deliver four to five times faster than the current version.

Additional Key Agile Platform 5.1 features:

  • Application Scalability: Version 5.1 has several scalability enhancements to support large enterprise web applications, including:
    • Support for multiple databases catalogs or schemas, advanced database security options and data isolation schemes providing advanced control of critical data sources;
    • Enhanced server-side caching of business logic, database queries and web services providing advanced tuning options to support heavy load web applications; and
    • Built-in support for search engine optimization (SEO) using smart URLs and other techniques for driving natural web traffic and increasing page rank.
  • Reduced Learning Curve: A new set of built in tutorials are also available to speed adoption across enterprise development teams. Tutorials use automated prompting technology to help new developers learn to use the Agile Platform in a day or less, by walking the developer through the delivery of a full enterprise application.
  • Auto Documentation: To assist project teams using either agile or other methods version 5.1 now supports the automatic generation of design documentation through new Agile Platform APIs. The free OutDoc component is available to all users of the Agile Platform.
