OutSystems Announces New Agility Award Winners

SATA Airlines and Cyprus Telecommunications Recognized for Driving Business Innovation and Agility

San Ramon, CA, 20thJuly, 2011

Agility Award

The Agile Platform has delivered a working system in weeks that enables our front-line staff to provide a superior service to our customers. As soon as the users saw what could be achieved we had an immediate request from them to increase the project scope. Using the Agile approach it was easy to define a new sprint and deliver the additional priority functions that they were requesting.

Ricardo Ferraz de Carvalho, Manager at SATA Airlines

 

With the new SGOK application we saw immediate improvements in the way users interacted with the application due to the simplified user interface and reduced steps needed to take an action. The agile approach to development used by our IT team provided the conditions for continuous stakeholder involvement and commitment to the choices made while the Agile Platform facilitated rapid development and deployment to support the project.

Costas Psillides, Manager of IT Applications at CYTA

 

This was SATA’s second Agility Award and highlights the power of agile and the Agile Platform in their organization. The sheer complexity of the SGOK application and the cost savings was huge. For CYTA, and our partner Jumar Solutions the delivery of the new web billing front end to their legacy application showed how quickly they could build and refine a high value solution for the business and proved the ability to integrate CA:Gen applications with the Agile Platform.

Mike Jones, VP of Marketing at OutSystems

Agility Award Winning Projects

Sata Airlines

SATA Airlines - SGOK Project

This application provides a new solution for the operational management of airport activity including the production of financial reporting for the airports managed by SATA. The application is fully integrated with internal systems and our real time flight information system, AIMS. In addition it is ready to integrate with the Portuguese civil aviation authorities (INAC), a major step in the alignment with national policies of interoperability between organizations. Delivered in 16 weeks with 8 sprints.

 

Cyprus Telecommunications

Cyprus Telecommunications
BRE Web Project

The new billing reports application supports users in CYTA’s call centers and stores. The driver for the application was to improve response time to common billing questions from customers. This was critical due to the poor performance and rigid, menu-based structure of the legacy systems. To deal with this situation CYTA decided to modernize the applications by re-platforming them on a better-performing Unix system and by creating new web interfaces in key areas to make the operator’s job easier and more efficient. Delivered with OutSystems’ partner Jumar Solutions in 9 weeks with 4 sprints.
