OutSystems Announces New Agility Award Winner
Faith Educational Ministries Delivers Custom Student Information Systems In Seven Weeks With Full User Adoption
San Ramon, CA, 26thJanuary, 2011
The Agile Platform provided the spring board to create a state-of-the-art Web 2.0 application that improves our business workflow. We were able to speed up user input time by designing the application screens for our needs versus trying to fit our process into an ‘off-the-shelf’ packaged application. Additionally, we were able to reduce employee cost with a self-grading function that grades student’s tests/homework and automatically places the grade in the student’s grade book.”
Dan Stueck, VP of IT at at Educational Ministries
Recognizing Faith Educational Ministries’ SIS4 project is especially sweet as it validates the power of the cloud coupled with the Agile Platform. This application was delivered through a set of distributed development resources and exceptional business team participation, all of which resulted in an extremely agile delivery process that met the business needs head on.”
