OutSystems Customer ADEC Innovations Receives Environmental Leader’s Top Product of the Year Award

The third industry recognition received for CleanChain, built with the OutSystems low-code development platform
London, UK — 22nd May, 2018OutSystems congratulates customer ADEC Innovations for receiving the Top Product of the Year Award from Environmental Leader. The winning product, CleanChain, was built with the OutSystems low-code development platform. In addition, CleanChain recently received the Sustainability Product of the Year award from Business Intelligence Group and the Green Supply Chain award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
ADEC was honoured on 16th May for this innovative app that advances greener supply chains by tracking chemicals through manufacturing processes so that companies in industries such as textiles and apparel can determine how to reduce and even eliminate hazardous chemicals from those processes. 500 users in over 35 countries use CleanChain to help reduce impacts in the supply chain and reach corporate sustainability goals and milestones.
“Receiving all this recognition illustrates the commitment of ADEC Innovations to promoting sustainability and making the world a cleaner, better place,” said Steve Rotter, CMO at OutSystems. “The CleanChain application is a game changer in the way it enables companies to take proactive efforts to keep hazardous materials out of the supply chain.”
CleanChain is one of several apps ADEC Innovations has developed since converting its app development processes to the OutSystems platform several years ago. Their goal - to shift away from traditional coding in an effort to build applications more quickly with agility.
“CleanChain is being used as part of a larger effort globally to keep pollution out of waterways, especially in developing countries that have yet to put in place the necessary regulations,” said Greg Scandrett, Director Product Development at ADEC. “We were able to build apps that these industries can use to create a real impact for local communities and the planet as a whole. And we were able to bring these solutions to market very quickly using OutSystems.”
The Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Today Product and Project Awards is a programme recognising excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line.

ThreatQuotient Launches Operations in Central Europe, Australia and Asia-Pacific Regions

Continued Global Expansion and New Hires Surge Momentum for Innovative Solutions Addressing Security Operations Challenges
London, UK - 22nd May, 2018 - ThreatQuotient™, a trusted threat intelligence platform innovator, today announced the company’s expansion into Central Europe (CEUR) and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. To complement existing international representation in France and the UK, operations have started in Germany and Australia, bringing additional leadership and momentum to ThreatQuotient’s globally recognised technology and solutions. Coming off a record-breaking year, and with the support of a Series C Financing round secured in November 2017, ThreatQuotient is focused on accelerating product development and bringing the best technology to market across the globe.
Leading organisations are heavily investing in digital transformation, and recognise the need for security to become more of a focus. However, rising amounts of attack vectors and a rapidly changing threat landscape have led these local companies to view security as a bottleneck for economic growth. ThreatQuotient’s offerings, including the ThreatQ threat intelligence platform and the industry’s first cybersecurity situation room, ThreatQ Investigations, are uniquely positioned to address the challenges by helping organisations understand and act upon the most relevant threats facing their operations, ensuring the optimisation of existing technology investments.
“ThreatQuotient is building new partner structures to meet the distinct demands of the Central Europe region, and we are committed to developing mutually beneficial relationships in this area,” said Cyrille Badeau, ThreatQuotient VP of Europe. Originally responsible for operations in Southern and Central Europe, Badeau was promoted in March 2018 to spearhead the advancement of ThreatQuotient and oversee operations in Continental Europe. “Our expansion to Germany is in direct response to growing demands for digital transformation, and we are looking forward to supporting the security operation needs of this key region.”
Joining Badeau’s Central Europe team is Markus Auer, Regional Sales Manager for Central Europe, and Falk Schwendike, Threat Intelligence Engineer for Central Europe. Auer brings more than 25 years of IT security experience to ThreatQuotient and will be responsible for building the market in DACH and Eastern Europe. He previously held positions at ForeScout Technologies, Q1 Labs, Sourcefire, netForensics and MessageLabs. Schwendike’s 20 years of experience in Information Technology and serving in likeminded positions at FireEye, Q1 Labs and InfoBlox, have prepared him to be ThreatQuotient’s leading resource for technology issues in Central Europe. Both Auer and Schwendike, based in Munich, joined ThreatQuotient in April 2018, and had previously worked together; proving their ability to develop structures and win customers as a team.
Joining in Australia is Anthony Stitt, ThreatQuotient’s APAC Regional Director, who will lead ThreatQuotient in APAC by building additional partnerships and relationships across this diverse and unique region. Stitt draws on experience from over two-decades in the security industry, including leadership positions at Cisco and Sourcefire. His role will focus on customer success, sales growth and building ThreatQuotient’s channel to satisfy the demand for threat intelligence solutions in the APAC region.
Stitt adds, “Across the globe, each company has unique environments and risks to consider, requiring greater threat visibility and customer defined controls. We are eager to expand on the technology partners we have established in APAC in the government, critical infrastructure and service provider space, bringing our collaboration platform to more organisations to ensure their security and intelligence operations are as efficient and effective as possible.”

Battery Ventures and Glassdoor Name OutSystems a Top Cloud Employer

Employee happiness and company culture top the reasons OutSystems is thriving in the ultra-competitive tech economy
London, UK – 15th May, 2018 -- OutSystems was named one of the 50 Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies to Work For by Battery Ventures and Glassdoor, citing employee happiness and company culture as primary drivers in today’s highly competitive tech economy. This ranking comes on the heels of being named a Top Cloud Employer by Forbes earlier this year.
Battery Ventures, a leading VC firm with investments in more than 500 tech companies, and Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, partnered for the second time to reveal the 50 Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies to Work For.
OutSystems was one of 36 new companies making the report, which was harder to crack compared to the last ranking in late 2016. Rankings were based on overall employee review scores, and this year’s cutoff required a combined average score of at least 4.4 (out of 5.0) as compared to 4.1 in the 2016 report.
“This is further validation that we are onto something special at OutSystems,” said Carlos Alves, Chief People Officer at OutSystems. “We talk about our ‘5 Greats – Growth, Giving, Culture, People, and Customers – as being the drivers behind our success as a people-first organisation. Making this list confirms that our philosophy resonates with the people that matter most – our employees and our customers.”
The report showed that the list of leading cloud companies ranked far above industry averages in several critical areas. For example, CEO approval ratings for top companies averaged 95 percent compared to just 69 percent for the Glassdoor average. Business outlook for top companies was also significantly better with 90 percent having a positive business outlook rating vs. just 48 percent for industry average.
According to the report, the list is comprised of an “elite group” that:
  • Added 13 percent of headcount in the last six months
  • Has an average of 471 workers per company
  • Collectively added 6,119 employees over the past year
  • Raised $7.1 billion in total capital
“We view these rankings as a key indicator of company health and potential growth,” said Neeraj Agrawal, General Partner at Battery Ventures.
The success of OutSystems to date is well above the average for other cloud-based companies in the report, having added 21 percent of its total headcount in the last six months and currently employing more than 750 people around the globe.
As further proof of the company’s success, Gartner named OutSystems a Leader in its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service for the second year in a row. View a complimentary copy of the report: https://www.outsystems.com/1/high-productivity-apaas-gartner-18/.
Glassdoor noted that employees at these highly rated companies commonly mention in online reviews that they enjoy working for mission-driven companies with strong and unique company cultures; employers that promote transparency; and companies with experienced senior leaders who regularly and clearly communicate with employees. For instance, according to one anonymous employee review of OutSystems on Glassdoor:
“OutSystems is definitely the best company I've worked for in my growing career. I've held positions at other similar companies, but the collaborative culture is simply the best. The product is amazing, and you can see that just from other product and analyst sites, but beyond that, the people working behind the scenes really are what makes the product and company what it is today.”

OutSystems Again Named a Leader in Gartner's 2018 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service

High-productivity application platform as a service continues to increase its footprint across enterprise IT as businesses juggle the demand for applications, digital business requirements, and skill set challenges, report states.
LONDON – 1st May, 2018 – For the second consecutive year, Gartner named OutSystems a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service (hpaPaaS) 2018.
