Discover how OutSystems has become a game-changer in supporting organisations in their digital transformation strategy.

OutSystems: a catalyst for business innovation

In today's fast-paced business landscape, organisations must embrace innovative solutions to stay ahead. There are a lot of strategic technological trends that address crucial business priorities such as digital immunity, composability, AI, platform engineering, Low-Code, and sustainability. OutSystems, the leading Low-Code development platform, has become a game-changer in supporting organisations to implement these trends efficiently and sustainably.

Opportunity for Business Innovation

OutSystems enhances cyber security

Protection for Digital Immunity

As organisations increasingly rely on digital systems, cyber threats pose a significant risk. Additionally, digital engagement with customers, employees, and partners, plays a vital role in a company's well-being.

The immunity and resilience of an organisation is now as strong and stable as its core digital systems. Any unavailability can result in a poor user experience, revenue loss, safety issues, and more.

OutSystems provides a robust and secure platform that helps build digital immune systems, safeguarding against evolving cybersecurity challenges. With advanced threat detection, continuous monitoring, secure coding practices, and AI code-scanning, OutSystems ensures applications are resilient and protected.

Furthermore, the platform covers most of the security aspects for project teams, enabling them to focus on delivering high value to end customers while best practices are recommended by the platform through code analysis using built-in patterns.

OutSystems simplifies cloud-native infrastructure management

Cloud-native architecture has emerged as a vital component for modern application development. The OutSystems Developer Cloud Platform enables teams to easily create and deploy cloud-native applications, leveraging the scalability and flexibility of cloud infrastructure through Kubernetes.

It allows companies to:

  • Optimise resource utilisation
  • Auto-scale application runtimes 
  • Reduce operational costs
  • Adopt sustainable practices (serverless computing, auto-scaling, …)

All this without the need for prior infrastructure investment nor the deep technical knowledge required to operate it and the typical burdens associated.
