WHAT IS OUTSYSTEMS?
OutSystems is a low-code application development platform that lets you develop super responsive applications that integrate easily with existing systems.
What does this mean?
The OutSystems platform is based on low code. That means that you need little programming knowledge to be able to build an application yourself. This certainly applies to the development of a standard applications. With just a few clicks you can quickly design a screen. But most applications are not standard. OutSystems offers professionals an easy way to deliver applications visually and quickly. Because of this visual programming, it is easy for development and business to work together for fast delivering of software with business value.
Short lead time
One of the biggest cornerstones of OutSystems is the very short development lead time. Visual programming allows you as a developer to create a functioning application in a very short time. Where we in the past needed seven programmers for seven months to deliver an application for one of our customers, it now cost only one and a half month with two OutSystems developers!
In an era where smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices are used by everyone, is it important that a (web) application is fully integrated in all these media. An application must be properly represented on these different media. OutSystems offers standard designs that are fully responsive. Making an application responsive has never been easier! In addition, you can choose to create your own mobile apps for Android or iOS. From Outsystems 10 it is now also possible to easily develop native apps.
Integration with existing systems
OutSystems takes existing situations into account where systems are fully integrated into business environments. It is not easy to switch directly and fully to a new development environment. That is why the platform is built in such a way that it is flexible to integrate into existing environments. For example, OutSystems can be used as a front end to communicate with existing back end systems. This makes it easy to renew without transforming the existing systems. OutSystems also offers interfaces to frequently used programs and systems such as SAP and Active Directory.
Security and error sensitivity
OutSystems has built-in security. At a time when hackers are lurking to spot potential back doors, security is very important. Many developers want to deliver functioning applications. In all their enthusiasm, they sometimes forget to think about safety. Because security is fully integrated within OutSystems, potential leaks are prevented. Of course, security still needs to be considered. But with this integration, the first risks are avoided.
By developing with OutSystems, code is also delivered that is free of errors. One of the possible entries for hackers are bugs that easily left out on the street (or google). The platform forces the developer to generate code without errors. With incorrect code it is simply not possible to publish the code.
Deze Rapid Application Development omgeving wordt door Gartner en Forrester geprezen en geroemd als leader en visionary op dit gebied.
In the first-ever Forrester Wave™ report specific to low-code development, OutSystems is named a Low-Code Leader. Forrester defines low-code platforms as: “Platforms that enable rapid delivery of business applications with a minimum of hand coding and minimal investment in setup, training and deployment.”
Gartner has named OutSystems a visionary with highest ability to execute in two Magic Quadrants. In the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for mobile application development (MADP) and the application platform as a service (aPaaS).
