OutSystems Platform Makes Building and Changing Custom Applications on Oracle WebLogic a Breeze
Atlanta, GA - September 12, 2013
OutSystems, today announced general availability of OutSystems Platform for Oracle WebLogic Server, the number one application server for conventional systems, engineered systems and cloud environments. By extending OutSystems Platform support to Oracle WebLogic Server, OutSystems enables development teams to deliver highly scalable enterprise web and mobile applications with unprecedented speed, dramatically simplified change management and automated DevOps processes.
OutSystems Platform, which has more than 36,000 installations across 22 industries in 24 countries, is acclaimed for the rapid delivery of native .NET and JBoss applications, and virtually eliminating change request backlogs. With Version 8.0, OutSystems Platform now brings that extraordinary ease and performance to Oracle WebLogic Server.
“With OutSystems Platform, we can finally deliver the applications our users want in the timeframe they need,” said Bart van Weele, Regional IT Director, Arval. “We now have a highly productive, rapid application delivery platform for our Oracle WebLogic Server environment. If there is a critical request, within 10 minutes we can deliver a new version of the application and, just like that, the problem is solved. OutSystems Platform automates our development operations to the point that we sometimes release two iterations of a production application within the same day, without any interruption to our user community.”
OutSystems Platform for Oracle WebLogic Server significantly improves the productivity of Java application development teams, enabling them to deliver more applications, faster, and to adopt an iterative approach to application delivery that improves user involvement and adoption. Customers experience a five-to-ten-fold increase in time-to-delivery and, most importantly, can respond to user change requests in near real-time, often delivering multiple iterations in the same day.
“OutSystems Platform is quickly becoming known as the fastest way to build and maintain highly scalable and extremely complex enterprise web and mobile applications,” said Paulo Rosado, founder and CEO of OutSystems. “We’ve had customers turn college computer science interns into OutSystems developers in two weeks, and throw them right into the middle of ongoing projects. And we have had customers build highly complex, mobile-ready enterprise applications the size and scale of an SAP implementation. That was unheard of until now. Based on the mission-critical nature of the enterprise applications built with our Platform, it only made sense to add native support for Oracle WebLogic Server. As the number one Java application server, many of our customers have standardized on it and requested this support.”
OutSystems Platform generates standard, optimized and fully documented Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE)-compliant source code that runs on Oracle WebLogic Server with support for Oracle Database 11g. Customers can:
- Deliver massively scalable enterprise apps as much as ten times faster - while virtually eliminating the change request backlog. OutSystems Platform requires minimal training and is suited for any level of developer, including the most advanced Java professionals. With one click, native Java applications are automatically deployed to Oracle WebLogic Server.
- Easily address change requests through rapid iteration. Sophisticated and automated impact analysis immediately identifies potential conflicts within applications and across the entire application portfolio. “Self-healing” can automate conflict resolution.
- Automate DevOps. “One-click publish” automates the DevOps lifecycle. From automating updates to code, databases and processes that are currently running without disturbing their execution, to automating rollbacks, OutSystems Platform eliminates the complexity of staging and deploying application updates.
- Experience rapid application delivery without bounds. Customers can re-use existing code, easily integrate with any legacy system, and utilize a wealth of open source components from the OutSystems Community Forge. Generating native Java application code means customers never “hit a wall” in the scale and complexity of applications they can deliver.
