The Future of App Development Is Multiexperience
Application development platforms are a strategic choice for the enterprise, delivering end-to-end digital journeys from design thinking to supporting new touchpoints.
OutSystems, provider of the number one low-code application development platform, was named a Leader in the new 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms (MXDP)*, positioned highest overall for ability to execute.
OutSystems believes this new Gartner report makes it clear - the future of app development is multiexperience. “These requirements go beyond mobile apps to enable development of progressive web apps (PWAs), conversational apps (voice assistants and chatbots), immersive apps and wearable apps,” according to Gartner.
According to Gartner, “Leaders have strong capabilities in mobile app and web development, and demonstrate a compelling product vision and commitment to multiexperience development in their platforms. They have large customer bases and robust partner ecosystems, and have shown healthy growth in this market. However, this market is rapidly evolving, so Leaders might not stay Leaders for long.”
The report goes on to state, “the term ‘multiexperience’ refers to the various permutations of modality (touch, voice and gesture, for example), device and app with which users interact on their digital journeys across diverse touchpoints. Multiexperience development involves creating fit-for-purpose apps based on touchpoint-specific modalities, while at the same time ensuring a consistent user experience across web, mobile, wearables, conversational and immersive touchpoints. Multiexperience development is typically undertaken using a variety of technologies, but single platforms are emerging that bring together the required technologies.”
“We believe Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms aligns perfectly with what our customers are telling us,” says Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO. “Enterprises want a strategic approach to develop apps that engage users, without using one tool for each touchpoint. Our platform enables them to deliver the amazing experiences that their customers crave with velocity, high adoption rates, and security.”
OutSystems is a low-code development platform with advanced mobile features, pixel-perfect UX, easy integration with any system, secure offline capabilities, and one-click deployment. So whether a company is building an enterprise-grade, business-to-consumer app with chat and voice recognition, or a complex field service solution, it can do it all with the speed and agility today’s development teams and consumers demand.
According to Gartner, OutSystems customers were instrumental in determining its position in the Magic Quadrant. Thousands of companies such as Toyota, Chevron, Logitech, Deloitte, Ricoh, Schneider Electric, and GM Financial use the OutSystems low-code platform to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives and differentiate their business.
Happy customers are the hallmark of OutSystems and consistently give the platform top ratings. OutSystems is a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for October 2018 in Best Mobile App Development Platforms and February 2019 in Best Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service Software on Gartner Peer Insights. The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals with experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product or service. Vendors must have a minimum of 50 published reviews, with an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or higher.
“Product teams are now able to focus on the quick turnaround of business value by delivering new functionalities, instead of ‘working on the plumbing'. ”
“We love the ability to quickly spin up new solutions and products with little overhead and deploy them to either an on premise or cloud based environment very quickly. The features and functionality for both web and mobile platforms help keep our application designs consistent.”
“We are using OutSystems on prem for now more than 6 years. It has dramatically changed the way we build and deliver applications to our customers. It has also changed significantly what our customers think about IT and our capability to deliver good and modern solutions in short times.”
