OutSystems, the open high-productivity application platform provider, has been selected by the Business Intelligence Group as “Platform as a Service (PaaS) of the Year” for 2014. The Stratus Award recognizes those companies innovating in cloud computing and providing innovative offerings that are truly differentiated in the market.
A significant factor in OutSystems success in 2014 is the successful launch of the company’s free cloud offering, which enables developers to easily create and deploy custom mobile and web apps for free in the cloud. OutSystems Platform free cloud offering is powered by the same robust application platform used by large enterprises such as Randstad, Liberty Insurance and Charles River Labs.”
In the first six months since its launch, over 8200 users in 154 countries have activated a free OutSystems Platform personal account. These users have published over 8600 unique applications and more than 591,000 app versions, resulting in over 12.5 million page views across these applications.
“OutSystems has seen significant momentum over the past year, as enterprises recognize that existing development approaches aren’t allowing them to keep up with user demands for mobile and customer-facing applications,” said David Holmes, vice president of marketing of OutSystems. “Nearly 400 enterprises have adopted OutSystems Platform to help them rapidly deliver applications that address the urgent business need to innovate and extend functionality and data to an increasingly mobile audience including employees, customers and partners. Being able to build and deliver these applications in the cloud reduces infrastructure needs and costs which speeds delivery of these business-critical apps. We are pleased to accept the Business Intelligence Group’s award as the latest recognition of the superiority of our platform in bringing new apps to market in record time, delivering a compelling experience for developers and users alike.”
“With more than 60% of businesses now utilizing the cloud for performing IT-related operations, the organizations selected are helping to accelerate the development and adoption of cloud-based services,” said Dawn Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are proud to reward OutSystems in the 2014 Stratus Awards. They are clearly leading the market in delivering real value to their end customers by leveraging the cloud.”
