OutSystems Recognized for the Seventh Consecutive Time as a Magic Quadrant Leader and Achieves Highest Score in Three out of Five Use Cases

OutSystems, a global leader in high-performance application development, announced today that Gartner, Inc. has named it a seven-time Leader in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms (LCAP). OutSystems also achieved the highest score in seven of the nine critical capabilities featured in the related 2023 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms Report and ranked first in three of the five application use cases, including: Composing B2E Departmental and Enterprise Apps, Multiexperience Applications, and Business Digitization, Prototyping and Innovation.

“The OutSystems platform continues to excel in the areas and use cases enterprise customers need most due to our strengths in generative AI, complexity at any scale, and developer centricity. We believe that the consistent recognition by Gartner of OutSystems as a Leader goes well beyond our platform,” said Paulo Rosado, Founder and CEO of OutSystems. “With OutSystems, enterprises tap into our incredible ecosystem of talent, reflected by our vibrant partner ecosystem, and 700,000-member strong community. They also benefit from our vast collection of free app components to help jump-start their applications and accelerate their time to value.”


OutSystems Delivers on Customers’ Most Critical Application Development Needs

The OutSystems Platform provides advanced low-code capabilities that include AI-augmented development, CI/CD integration, enterprise agile planning, and governance, resulting in a developer-centric approach to software development. In the 2023 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms Report, OutSystems achieved the highest scores in three out of five Use Cases.

The company’s high-performance approach also helps differentiate OutSystems in its ability to create a wide variety of strategic and mission-critical apps. OutSystems ranked highest in the following Use Cases in the 2023 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms Report:

  • Composing Applications for B2E Departmental and Enterprise Apps: This involves layering web and mobile UX on top of external data and business services. Integrations and components are stored in the LCAP catalog for reuse across teams by platform curators.
  • Multiexperience Applications: These include web, mobile, and chat applications B2E and B2C user experiences and customer journeys. They are often built on top of existing application services, SaaS, and new services.
  • Business Digitization, Prototyping and Innovation: These sophisticated, full-stack applications integrate with documents, cases, and other data to automate processes and defer processes to staff. They can be used for things such as the integration of new payment types for an existing website, a prototype for customer self-service capabilities, or adding a snap-and-send mobile app capability for a legacy insurance claims application.

Customers Validate the Impact of OutSystems

In addition to the 2023 Magic Quadrant for LCAP, OutSystems was also recognized as a “Customers’ Choice” in the March 2022 Gartner Peer Insights™ “‘Voice of the Customer’: Enterprise Low-Code Platforms” report, based on user reviews and feedback. Since the launch of the Peer Insights platform, users have shared more referral reviews of OutSystems (828 as of 18th October 2023) than of any other enterprise low-code vendor, with an overall score of 4.5/5 stars as of October 18, 2023.

“To digitize Green Cargo, we had to bring innovation and development in-house and get the business and IT working in unison. OutSystems gives us the agility to make that possible,” said Ingo Paas, CIO of Green Cargo. “We are now working like a full-stack software company, building outstanding applications with low costs on our fully scalable platforms.”

"A platform approach to app dev makes the impossible possible. Delivering four times faster while at the same time improving quality is a game-changer — making a vast range of innovations viable that were previously risk or cost-prohibitive,” said Bruce Buttles, Former Digital Channels Director, Humana.
