OutSystems Recognized as a Leader Among Low-Code Development Platforms

Atlanta, GA -  14 4 2016

OutSystems, the most trusted enterprise Rapid Application Development (RAD) platform provider, has been recognized as a Leader in The Forrester WaveTM: Low-Code Development Platforms. OutSystems received the highest score in the current offering category and was among the highest scores in the strategy category.

Forrester defines low-code platforms as: “Platforms that enable rapid delivery of business applications with a minimum of hand coding and minimal investment in setup, training and deployment.

We are thrilled to be cited as a leader in this Forrester Wave for low-code platforms,” said Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems. “We believe Forrester has recognized that a large number of organizations are accelerating the road to digitalization with low-code platforms. We are proud of our hundreds of visionary customers that have leapfrogged their competition through enterprise-scale deployments of apps built using OutSystems.

Organizations today are seeking new ways to fast track their move to digital business by delivering engaging mobile and responsive web customer experiences that can differentiate them in the marketplace. Digital transformation requires a fundamental change in how apps are built and delivered, and low-code platforms radically accelerate that journey. Low-code platforms unlock innovation and expand development ability beyond IT to business teams, helping reduce backlog and compress delivery times from months to weeks.

As attested to by more than 600 global enterprise customers, OutSystems provides application delivery and change with extraordinary speed in a stable, secure and scalable environment that ensures ongoing flexibility and continuous evolution. Its security standards are proven with some of the largest financial companies in the world, it provides the scalability required for massive B2C solutions, and it offers the management features needed for IT to keep the systems adaptable, reliable and stable.

OutSystems customers are vocal with their results using OutSystems.Speed and productivity were critical factors for our move to digital business. After trying other low-code tools, we knew we needed an enterprise-grade platform that delivered scalability, an open-framework, and superior integration capabilities. We found all that and more with OutSystems,” said Chris Haley, director of legal technology at Troutman Sanders eMerge.

“We reduced our development hours by 75 percent and got to market 3x faster using OutSystems,” said David Lightfoot, VP of product management at FICO.

OutSystems enabled us to rapidly build eServe, a web-based portal for our brokers that helps them better serve their customers and that eliminates unnecessary processes and delays,” said Chris Voller, director of claims at AXA.
