CXO Advisor

We are excited about the opportunity to work with OutSystems and to bring this innovative technology to Africa; we believe that the combination of the Agile and Rapid paradigms will bring accelerated skills, capacity and capability to the market. This could assist South African companies to take a much needed technological lead in the African landscape. OutSystems plans to invest in skills development in the ISV and VAR market and utilize some of CXO Advisor's own unique, financially based IT Management approaches to enhance these capabilities locally.

Craig Terblanche (MD of CXO Advisor)


CXO Advisor, South Africa's only truly independent ICT Advisory business and OutSystems, provider of the industry-leading Agile Platform application development tool, announced a new agreement whereby CXO Advisor will provide insight and guidance to OutSystems as they enter the South African market. CXO Advisor will help OutSystems establish the market potential and assist with market positioning and development for OutSystems’ products including the Agile Platform 7.0.

The Agile Platform 7.0 was launched at the recent NextStep 2012 conference in Lisbon on May 10, 2012. OutSystems CEO Paulo Rosado said, “The Agile Platform 7.0 release is focused on simplicity and introduces a new component called LifeTime. This component expands our application development and delivery platform with a single view for both development and operations to manage their application portfolio and dramatically simplifies many of the challenges faced by organizations trying to adopt new DevOps processes.”

In addition to the LifeTime component, the Agile Platform 7.0 provides enhanced support for building multi-tenant applications that require full data isolation.  By setting a single application parameter in the Agile Platform a complete multi-tenant solution is generated from the business process layer, through the database, to back end application monitoring.
