The Future of App Development Is Multiexperience - OutSystems Named a Leader in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms

Application development platforms are a strategic choice for the enterprise, delivering end-to-end digital journeys from design thinking to supporting new touchpoints.
London – 15th July 2019OutSystems, provider of the number one low-code application development platform, was named a Leader in the new 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms (MXDP)*, positioned highest overall for ability to execute.
OutSystems believes this new Gartner report makes it clear - the future of app development is multiexperience. “These requirements go beyond mobile apps to enable development of progressive web apps (PWAs), conversational apps (voice assistants and chatbots), immersive apps and wearable apps,” according to Gartner.
According to Gartner, “Leaders have strong capabilities in mobile app and web development and demonstrate a compelling product vision and commitment to multiexperience development in their platforms. They have large customer bases and robust partner ecosystems and have shown healthy growth in this market. However, this market is rapidly evolving, so Leaders might not stay Leaders for long.” 
The report goes on to state, “the term ‘multiexperience’ refers to the various permutations of modality (touch, voice and gesture, for example), device and app with which users interact on their digital journeys across diverse touchpoints. Multiexperience development involves creating fit-for-purpose apps based on touchpoint-specific modalities, while at the same time ensuring a consistent user experience across web, mobile, wearables, conversational and immersive touchpoints. Multiexperience development is typically undertaken using a variety of technologies, but single platforms are emerging that bring together the required technologies.”
“We believe Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms aligns perfectly with what our customers are telling us,” says Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO. “Enterprises want a strategic approach to develop apps that engage users, without using one tool for each touchpoint. Our platform enables them to deliver the amazing experiences that their customers crave with velocity, high adoption rates, and security.”
OutSystems is a low-code development platform with advanced mobile features, pixel-perfect UX, easy integration with any system, secure offline capabilities, and one-click deployment. Whether a company is building an enterprise-grade, business-to-consumer app with chat and voice recognition, or a complex field service solution, it can do it all with the speed and agility today’s development teams and consumers demand.
According to Gartner, OutSystems customers were instrumental in determining its position in the Magic Quadrant. Thousands of companies such as Toyota, Chevron, Logitech, Deloitte, Ricoh, Schneider Electric, and GM Financial use the OutSystems low-code platform to accelerate their digital transformation initiatives and differentiate their business.
Happy customers are the hallmark of OutSystems and consistently give the platform top ratings. OutSystems is a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for October 2018 in Best Mobile App Development Platforms and February 2019 in Best Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service Software on Gartner Peer Insights. The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end-user professionals with experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product or service. Vendors must have a minimum of 50 published reviews, with an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or higher.

OutSystems Launches New Artificial Intelligence Capabilities to Accelerate Smart App Development

Low-code leader makes it easy to incorporate AI for next-generation customer experiences
London - 27th June 2019 - OutSystems today announced that it has added new artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities to its leading low-code development platform, giving organisations the power to harness automation to create self-service portals, respond to text and voice queries, improve customer service, and much more.
Gartner predicts, “By 2020, customers will manage 85% of their relationship with the enterprise without interacting with a human.”
Developers can now build new channels of engagement into their own apps, connecting customers and users with the help and information they need anywhere at any time. These capabilities will enable organisations to create and enable voice-capable functionality for virtual assistants such as Google, Siri, and Alexa and chatbots that support Facebook Messenger, Cortana, Skype, and more. No data science experience or specialised in-house skills are required.
According to Gartner, the use of AI tripled over the last four years, but even with this surge in interest, only one-third of organisations have implemented AI in some form.
“These new, high-level components package everything organisations need to implement rich use cases from end to end. As a result, many more companies can easily adopt AI and machine learning to positively impact their business,” said António Alegria, OutSystems head of artificial intelligence. “The combination of low-code and AI addresses the single biggest challenge holding these companies back—the shortage of skills.”
Simplifying the application of AI and machine learning also benefits the ecosystem of OutSystems partners. “IG&H is a strategic OutSystems partner. We focus on deploying the OutSystems low-code platform to accelerate digital initiatives in the financial, retail, and healthcare markets. The new AI capabilities from OutSystems will enable us to add new dimensions to the solutions we provide to our clients in these industries and others,” said Daniël Kuhlmann, Senior OutSystems Developer at IG&H

Wheels Builds Award-Winning Fleet Management Apps with OutSystems

Company’s Applications Win Two Gold Stevie Awards for Excellence in Customer Service
London — 6th June 2019OutSystems announced that its customer, Wheels Inc., has won two gold Stevie Awards for excellence in customer service for apps it built with the OutSystems low-code platform. Its FleetView Mobile app was awarded a gold Stevie in Mobile On-Demand Application. Its second gold Stevie was awarded to its connected vehicle program in the category of IoT Analytics solution.
Wheels helps customers across industries manage their fleets, providing technology solutions that facilitate communication with drivers, improve organisational performance, and promote vehicle safety. Wheels worked with OutSystems to jumpstart its low-code development process and deliver a series of apps, including a mobile version of its FleetView client portal and a telematics order processing system. In just 13 weeks, Wheels built the mobile application, doubled the speed of its app development processes, and integrated new capabilities into its core client-facing portal, creating a seamless, end-to-end user experience.
“The flexibility of the OutSystems platform has helped us become more agile and do a better job of responding to clients,” said Tim O’Hara, chief information officer at Wheels. “It gives us control over the user experience so clients can seamlessly navigate between applications built with different underlying technologies.”
Wheels has also worked with OutSystems to build a Vehicle Inventory Management (VIM) application for the FleetView portal. It helped in supporting greater workflow efficiencies, guided decision making, SLA tracking, and higher quality; a Telematics Order Processing System that digitises the manual process of ordering and tracking data-producing plug-in devices for vehicles.
“The recent multiple wins for Wheels at the Stevie Awards show how much value companies can generate when they combine a crystal-clear vision and market-tested technology with the strength and versatility of a low-code platform like OutSystems,” said Carlos Alves, chief customer officer at OutSystems.
The reason the Wheels FleetView Mobile app won was because of its biometric login, push notifications, driver/vehicle information, approvals, alerts and local storage that gives fleet managers the information they need and the ability to take action while on the go. The connected vehicle program won for using IoT data to gain insights that can be used to improve vehicle safety, vehicle efficiency and driver productivity.

Carbon Black Threat Report Details Cyberattacks Targeting the Healthcare Industry

Report highlights input from 20 leading healthcare CISOs who offer their perspective on evolving cyberattacks, ransomware and the biggest concerns to their organisations
Reading, UK – 5th June 2019 - Carbon Black (NASDAQ: CBLK), a leader in cloud endpoint protection, today released a seminal report on the state of cybersecurity in the healthcare industry. The report, Healthcare Cyber Heists in 2019, features direct input from 20 industry-leading CISOs to determine how attackers have evolved over the past year.
“The potential, real-world effect cyberattacks can have on healthcare organisations and patients is substantial,” said Rick McElroy, Carbon Black’s Head of Security Strategy and one of the report’s authors. “Cyber attackers have the ability to access, steal and sell patient information on the dark web. Beyond that, they have the ability to shut down a hospital’s access to critical systems and patient records, making effective patient care virtually impossible.”
Among the key findings from the report:
  • 83% of surveyed healthcare organisations said they’ve seen an increase in cyberattacks over the past year
  • Two thirds (66%) of surveyed healthcare organisations said cyberattacks have become more sophisticated over the past year
  • Two thirds (66%) of surveyed healthcare organisations said their organisation was targeted by a ransomware attack during the past year
  • Nearly half (45%) of surveyed healthcare organisations said they’ve encountered attacks where the primary motivation was destruction of data over the past year
  • One-third (33%) of surveyed healthcare organisations said they’ve encountered instances of island hopping on their enterprises over the past year
  • One-third (33%) of surveyed healthcare organisations said they’ve encountered counter incident response over the past year
The report also includes research detailing healthcare-related offerings on the dark web (including hacked provider data) as well as specific security recommendations for healthcare CISOs.
