OutSystems Launches AI Assistant App Development Capability

Smart technology from low-code leader helps professional and citizen developers deliver applications faster
London, UK – 20th November, 2019 – OutSystems, provider of the number one platform for low-code development, today announced that it has embedded AI and machine learning in its software to make building applications even easier and faster for everyone. Designed for IT professionals and business people who develop applications, this AI copilot uses expertise learned from millions of anonymised code and application patterns to suggest the next best action in the development process.
Gartner has predicted that market demand for app development will grow at least five times faster than IT’s capacity to deliver it by the end of this year[1]. In addition, Gartner reports that organisations indicate that IT and business alignment is the top barrier to delivering the application experiences customers expect[2].
Since the announcement of its major AI initiative almost two years ago, OutSystems has been testing and refining methods to infuse AI into its platform to make it easier to bridge the IT and business gap, while further accelerating delivery. The release of the AI-assisted capability makes it possible for IT pros to be more productive while guiding citizen developers through the development process. At any step in the process of defining logic flows, inline suggestions are provided for the next best step.
“For OutSystems and the outsystems.ai R&D group, a future with no limits is one where intelligent tools augment the work of developers and business users. We are striving to make app delivery 100x faster so anyone can deliver robust, high-quality apps of all complexities,” said António Alegria, OutSystems head of artificial intelligence. “By leveraging state-of-the-art AI and machine learning research done in-house and in collaboration with top research institutions, we succeeded in creating an artificial expert that allows them to be more productive and effective. And, we’re just getting started. Look for more to come in 2020.”
OutSystems customers who participated in an early access program for the AI-assisted development capability acknowledge significant real-world productivity and skill-building gains.
“I just tried this for the first time, and what used to take five minutes of searching and a lot of mouse movement took about a second. The AI feature guessed exactly what I wanted to do! It is impressive,” said Vincent Koning, software engineer at Royal Boskalis Westminster. “It helps me prevent repetitive strain injury symptoms, and because I use the mouse less, I can continue working for longer periods of time.”
OutSystems partner, ITUp, has been part of the early access program. “There’s a lot of potential here because it saves time! Instead of having to go to multiple places to find what I need and drag-and-drop it to the flow, it’s just two clicks, which is really good,” said Rafaela Valadas, a trainee in the ITUp Turn Up program. “I think the assistant can make a real difference. People will do things faster.” Joana Brito, another trainee in the ITUp Turn Up program, said, “It helps me think and get to the right solution, which sometimes we might not remember.”

OutSystems Recognised by Gartner for Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms

OutSystems among the five highest-scoring vendors for every use case identified by Gartner
LONDON - 15th November, 2019 - OutSystems, provider of the number one low-code application development platform, today announced that Gartner, Inc., the world’s leading information technology and advisory company, has recognised OutSystems in its 2019 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms* report. OutSystems is among the five highest scores for every use case identified by Gartner.
The report examined the capabilities of 19 vendors to meet the needs of organisations in four distinct use cases: citizen development, business unit IT applications, enterprise IT composite applications, and SaaS and ISV Mobile & Web Applications. OutSystems received the highest overall score for SaaS and independent software vendor (ISV) mobile and web applications, the second-highest score for enterprise IT composite applications, and scored within the highest five scores for both citizen development and business unit IT applications.
“We believe this recognition, combined with our placement in the Leaders quadrant in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms, validates our comprehensive approach to low-code development,” said Paulo Rosado, OutSystems Co-Founder and CEO. “But we feel that nothing reflects the value of our platform better than the success our customers are experiencing. They frequently share how OutSystems has helped them modernise aging systems, use cloud applications to become more agile and respond to change, turn small departmental apps into core applications for the enterprise, and deliver omnichannel digital experiences that their customers love. We think these scores from Gartner reflect the innovation our customers are driving in their businesses.”
OutSystems was evaluated across the following nine critical capabilities: no-code development; end-user experience; UX data, logic, and process; back-end data, logic and process; integration capabilities; enterprise IT SDLC support; advanced architecture support; cloud functionality; and enterprise worthiness.
Our low-code platform has helped OutSystems customers achieve unparalleled results like:
  • FWD Insurance launched a new customer-facing app called Tapp in 90 days that has catapulted them from 33rd to 8th largest insurance provider in the Philippines in just four years and features integrated live chat, payment reminders, and fingerprint authentication.
  • EDP built a brand-new core payment collection system from scratch that serves 200 collection agents and has processed 55 million transactions and 6 billion euros.
  • Albert Heijn, part of the international food retail group Ahold Delhaize, consolidated nine core applications into one app that is used in more than 1000 stores by more than 100,000 users and cuts task time by 50 percent.
The OutSystems low-code application development platform gives organisations the freedom to think big and innovate with no limits. It addresses critical issues like the skyrocketing demand for new enterprise applications, aging legacy systems that need to be modernised or replaced, citizen development, field services, and omnichannel digital CX. The platform offers capabilities for enterprise-grade development and full lifecycle management, integration, UI/UX, business logic, data models, web services, and APIs. OutSystems offers access to capabilities such as an advanced web and mobile user experience, B2C solutions, and even batch processing.
According to Gartner, “Low-code application platforms (LCAPs) continue to grow in capability and maturity, addressing more enterprise use cases and providing rapid application delivery with fewer skills to the advantage of businesses everywhere. They are also replacing traditional Java and .NET developments where the requirements do not justify the costs and skills of cloud-native application platforms.”
The Gartner Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms report is intended to help organisations who are evaluating low-code application platforms to create their shortlist. It explains and scores the core features and use cases for low-code application platforms. Read a complimentary copy of the Gartner October 2019 Critical Capabilities for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms.
