OutSystems, a global leader in high-performance low-code application development has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with PETRONAS Digital Sdn Bhd (PDSB), the digital arm of PETRONAS, to promote and accelerate the use of low-code app development in PETRONAS Group.
Through this partnership, OutSystems will provide training materials, research, and other know-how processes on the usage of its low-code platform for PETRONAS’ Citizen Developer Program. Citizen developers are employees with little to no coding experience who create applications with low-code platforms. This democratises the development process and empowers the organisation to pursue technology-based innovation.
OutSystems will provide PETRONAS with best practice tools, methodologies, and technical practices to facilitate the adoption of the platform. OutSystems will also award certifications to new developers who have demonstrated the ability to use its platform effectively.
According to a new AWS-commissioned research released by Gallup in February 2023, workers with advanced digital skills will add US$107.5 billion (MYR170.2 billion) to Malaysia’s Annual GDP. Malaysian organisations running on the cloud are more likely to have introduced a new, innovative product in the last two years, but 85% are facing hiring issues for software development skillset. OutSystems’ low-code platform can help organisations close the skills gap they need to drive productivity, cost efficiencies, and business innovation.
“We are excited about the opportunities that low-code technology presents to meet the evolving needs of our businesses and operations worldwide. It will enable our people to create new applications faster, enabling PETRONAS to continually unlock new value for the organisation.” said PETRONAS Vice President of Group Technology and Commercialisation Aadrin Azly.
"As the world continues to encounter a shortage of developers, low-code technology allows individuals and businesses to streamline their processes and develop solutions faster. As a leader in high-performance, low-code development, we are proud to be able to assist PETRONAS in driving business digitalisation, and at the same time fostering a new generation of tech talent," said Paulo Rosado, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, OutSystems.
PETRONAS and OutSystems are committed to nurturing a future-ready workforce and delivering development excellence on applications that delight users and drive value for organisations.
