“This year’s conference will focus on addressing the last inefficient industry of the twenty-first century: IT,” said Mike Jones, VP Marketing with OutSystems. “Our aim is to give attendees an in-depth look at the latest best practices and tools for improving IT productivity and predictability at their organization, whether it’s a global Fortune 500 company or a small development operation.”

NextStep 2010 marks the sixth NextStep conference held by OutSystems, and features panelists, attendees and speakers from around the globe, all of whom are interested in cutting business costs and time to market through better application development and deployment practices.

For the keynote, Gartner’s Massimo Pezzini will provide the NextStep audience with Gartner’s view on improving IT efficiency in this decade. He’ll examine three major areas, including methods, technology and architecture along with Gartner’s own supporting research about industry trends.

The event will also provide a sneak preview of the next version of OutSystems’ Agile Platform, an application development platform that uses agile methodology to speed up the delivery and management of Web applications and business processes.

NextStep 2010 will be held from April 15 – 16 at Centro de Congressos do Estoril, Lisbon, Portugal. More information is available at https://www.outsystems.com/nextstep.
