OutSystems, the enterprise Rapid Application Delivery (RAD) platform provider, today announced that industry analyst firm Ovum has named OutSystems Platform as a market leader in the 2015 Ovum Decision Matrix for Mobile Application Development Platforms (MADP). OutSystems scored exceptionally high in areas of feature coverage, execution and revenue growth.
“Ovum is impressed with OutSystems because of the complete end-to-end nature of their solution for the rapid development and delivery of mobile and web applications,” said Michael Azoff, Principal Analyst, IT Infrastructure Solutions for Ovum. “Its enterprise-grade features and functionality cover the entire mobile app lifecycle, in addition to providing a complete platform for delivering custom applications across all devices.”
“We are pleased that Ovum has recognized OutSystems as a market leader and anticipate that this research will help organizations around the world more confidently consider and evaluate MADP solutions that meet their mobile and web application delivery needs,” said Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems. “Everyday, we witness firsthand how positively and enthusiastically business decision makers and the development community continue to benefit from the power and flexibility of our Platform for creating and managing solutions to meet the demands of today’s mobile customer.”
In outlining the strengths of OutSystems Platform, Ovum identified some particular areas in which the solution excelled. Among these is the fact that OutSystems Platform has been designed as a single solution with features covering the entire mobile app lifecycle and does not require any add-ons, as compared to many others in its category.
Additionally, OutSystems provides its users with a choice of hosting apps created using OutSystems Platform in the public cloud, the customer’s private cloud, and/or on-premises, without any differing price considerations. Finally, the report points out that OutSystems provides excellent and robust security and performance management support by offering a range of authentication types, comprehensive data protection features, code-related security support and app security monitoring.
The Ovum Decision Matrix for MADP is designed to help decision makers better evaluate and determine MADP solutions, one of the most daunting long-term decisions for enterprises. The report evaluates a dozen MADP vendors, categorizing each as a Market Leader, Market Challenger or Market Follower. Ovum recommends that market leaders should be considered on the short list when enterprises are evaluating MADP platforms.
The report also emphasizes that while the MADP market continues to innovate and evolve, business requirements should always drive the mobile strategy and the resulting solution.
