1. AI in OutSystems
The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) in corporate operations has transformed and revolutionized processes through functionalities like document extraction and computer vision. Nevertheless, organizations often encounter significant hurdles when it comes to implementing and harnessing the power of AI.
Artificial intelligence challenges range from the scarcity of skilled data scientists to the integration of diverse data sources. Additionally, incorporating AI into existing workflows necessitates modifications to underlying software infrastructure. Typically, this results in a backlog for the IT team, with resolution times stretching over the course of years. This bottleneck poses a barrier to the successful implementation of AI initiatives.
How OutSystems AI helps overcome hurdles
The OutSystems platform and its AI capabilities offer you a lifeline - a comprehensive solution covering two major areas:
- AI for software development - where artificial intelligence serves as a powerful tool to enhance and expedite software development processes. It acts as both a catalyst, boosting the speed of development, and an authoritative validator, ensuring precision in maintaining and upholding quality standards.
- AI in applications - where the platform empowers businesses to incorporate AI into their operations. This enables a wide range of applications, from leveraging natural language inputs and chatbots for common use cases, to establishing new processes and enhancing existing ones, such as support automation or computer vision.
OutSystems has been helping customers navigate these types of challenges since embracing AI as an accelerator of software development in early 2018. Back then, we decided to invest heavily in creating the industry leading AI research and development group. We did this when AI in code was just a vision. And during this time, we have been integrating AI throughout the whole platform and the whole software development lifecycle to help and mentor developers, tech leads, and architects to create better software faster and with higher quality.
