Low-code development with life-changing results
Results – Using the OutSystems platform, the ECB can now develop game-changing apps in a fraction of the time it took previously. But, as a seasoned ultramarathon runner, Damian knows that speed is just one part of what it takes to deliver long-term success.
By using OutSystems, Damian has driven a major culture shift across the ECB that has brought numerous organizational benefits. The new development approach supported by OutSystems has brought IT, developers and users closer together, making app innovation a truly collaborative process.
As a result, IT better understands what people need from them, and people feel truly enabled by the department. For Damian personally, this shift has been “life-changing.”
According to Damian, “this new development culture has helped improve the speed of decision-making at the ECB, specifically helping me focus investment more wisely.”
“We’ve become far more evidence-based in how we choose the projects to invest in, which gives us a lot more credibility across the entire business. We’re extremely connected to the business now, and we’re able to deliver inspired solutions that users are truly proud of.”
Because the OutSystems platform is so simple to use, it’s also hugely expanded the range of opportunities and ideas that ECB can explore effectively. When new skills are needed, it’s as simple as outsourcing to the right OutSystems partner, something that has proven very simple and convenient.
The ECB’s innovative fast-bowling app was fully developed in just two months with the help of accomplished OutSystems partner Sports Data Services–a project that previously would have taken over a year. It’s now the key system for player coaching and development, enabling total collaboration between players and coaches.
Plus, because low-code makes it so easy for Damian and the ECB team to iterate on existing apps, it’s only getting better–with new capabilities and functionality being added incrementally, in line with evolving player and coach needs.
