Atlanta, GA -  02 May 2017

One giant leap for IT — New Gartner report elevates the need for high-productivity app development

With the increasing demand for faster application development, Gartner has published the new Magic Quadrant for Low-Code Application Platforms (LCAP) 2019 report in which OutSystems is named a Leader. This category of technologies accelerates application development and digital business transformation.

According to Gartner, “high-productivity, or rapid application development and deployment, platform technology in the cloud is growing swiftly as enterprise IT increasingly exploits cloud-based tooling with reduced skill requirements.” Further, Gartner says, “high-productivity aPaaS provides rapid application development (RAD) features for development, deployment and execution — in the cloud. Enterprise aPaaS is an aPaaS offering designed to support the enterprise style of applications and application projects — such as high availability/disaster recovery (HA/DR), external service access, security and technical support.


Gartner’s definition of enterprise-class high productivity aPaaS is spot on,” said Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems.“IT organizations are demanding faster digital solutions that address multiple use cases, are easy to use, and have broad functional depth.We believe the introduction of a High-Productivity Magic Quadrant is proof that thousands of enterprise customers are experiencing tangible value from low-code development solutions, and we are thrilled to be considered a Leader in this emerging category.

The OutSystems high-productivity aPaaS is a general-purpose solution that addresses many PaaS use cases including the development of mobile front-end applications, enterprise core systems, and omnichannel business applications. OutSystems provides clients a low-risk way to get started, immediately cutting app backlog with tremendous development speed.
