OutSystems, provider of the number one low-code application development platform, and Workato, a platform for intelligent automation, today announced a partnership aimed at allowing organizations to rapidly realize innovation, time to value, productivity, and mission-critical objectives through readily available application connectors. Persistent Systems is integral to this partnership as a strategic implementation and go-to-market partner for both OutSystems and now Workato. Together, the companies are building new products, automating business processes, and transforming customer experiences for their enterprise customers.

Together, OutSystems and Workato address the ever-increasing demand for:

Large enterprise core system integration – Leveraging data integration, messaging, API management, EDI, and bot-assisted file transfer capabilities

Mission-critical system integration – Accelerating time to value through rapid third-party integrations and continuous automation through a readily accessible data integration layer

Connected customer experiences – Providing a consistent view of data spread across many departments to unify customer experiences across different channels

Emerging integration needs – Through AI, machine learning, and natural language processing integration, automation of chat-bot tasks, RPA, and collaboration tool integration

Line of business and self-service enablement – Extend organization and role access through HR, sales, marketing, support, and IT accessible integrations

Enterprise integration platform as a service (EiPaaS) adoption is growing fast and playing an increasingly strategic role for midsize and large organizations. “Many thousands of user organizations have adopted an EiPaaS solution during the past 12 months, and Gartner estimates that over 50,000 organizations used some form of iPaaS in 2018.”*
