OutSystems named an app platform innovator for helping businesses
deliver mission-critical mobile apps using low-code technology

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OutSystems,
provider of the number one low-code
platform for rapid application development
, announced that the
company was named to the CRN
Mobility 100
and recognized as one of the “15
Coolest Mobile App Development Platforms
” of 2019. In addition,
OutSystems senior director of channel marketing, Shiri Friedman, was
named to “The
Most Powerful Women Of The Channel 2019
.” These recognitions are a
result of increasing customer adoption of the OutSystems platform and
massive growth of the channel program.

The CRN report highlights vendors that offer innovative platforms for
developing business mobile apps. OutSystems tackles one of the biggest
problems facing IT, which is the lack of speed and flexibility in
traditional software development. With the platform’s visual interface,
software developers can build applications with business users, enabling
the business to play a larger role in development and freeing up IT
resources for innovation.

Companies such as Toyota, Logitech, Deloitte, Ricoh, Schneider Electric,
and GM Financial use the OutSystems low-code platform to rapidly develop
custom applications that digitalize and differentiate their business. A
few examples of OutSystems customers successfully using low-code
technology to create innovative mobile apps include:

  • The
    City of Oakland
    modernized its digital services and increased
    digital inclusion for residents by creating eight apps in just 12
    months, saving the city an estimated $1 million.
  • Albert
    Heijn
    , part of international food retail group Ahold Delhaize,
    overhauled its business processes and created an intuitive user
    experience rolling out the award-winning Wink app, which is now used
    in over 1,000 stores by more than 60,000 users.
  • Vopak,
    one of the world’s largest tank terminal operators for the oil and gas
    industry, built large mission-critical applications to support its
    core processes, enabling the company to mobilize its workforce and
    acquire real-time insights in logistics, increasing employee
    efficiency by 50 percent.

CRN’s Women of the Channel list spotlights the female executives whose
insight and influence help drive channel success. Friedman leads the
global partner marketing program for OutSystems, attracting new partners
to the program by representing the OutSystems Partner ecosystem and its
benefits. In January, the company was named Software
Innovator of the Year
at Dutch IT Channel’s annual awards gala.

During the past year, the OutSystems channel program has continued to
expand. The number of partners in the program has increased to almost
300. Along with partners like Deloitte, KPMG, and Persistent Systems,
OutSystems brings industry expertise, delivery capabilities, and best
practices to customers around the globe. OutSystems has existing
alliances in place with Deloitte covering Australia, Saudi Arabia, and
Portugal, where Deloitte has an OutSystems
Center of Excellence
. Through its Partner
Awards 2018
, OutSystems recognized Deloitte as well as other
partners including Atos, KPMG, Alpha Omega Integration, C2S, Netlink,
and Truewind for facilitating innovative solutions on the OutSystems
low-code app development platform.

“Being recognized as a leading mobile application platform by CRN is a
great proof point and speaks to our value proposition for both our
partner community as well as our customers,” said Peter Dunlap, vice
president of channels and alliances at OutSystems. “Our goal of
providing a partner network that enables businesses to successfully
navigate digital transformation is being recognized by a leading channel
publication. Working with companies such as Deloitte and Persistent
Systems strengthens our partner network to offer our customers the best
possible experiences while innovating with our technology.”

“Our customers trust Deloitte to provide business recommendations and
expertise that are going to innovate and develop companies and
ultimately bring more value to the business,” said Rui Vaz, Deloitte
Portugal, Partner of Consulting in Technology. “With OutSystems, we can
make recommendations to our customers who are looking to update legacy
systems. Projects that range from quick modernizations that meet
short-term goals to full-scale core systems replacements take a fraction
of the time compared to employing traditional development methods. In
both instances, the customer is happy with the project scope and the end
results, and that builds trust both for Deloitte and for OutSystems.”

This win follows a banner year for OutSystems, reporting record revenue
in 2018 due largely to the value customers are gaining from the low-code
platform. OutSystems posted a 66 percent increase in annual recurring
revenue for 2018, which is its third consecutive increase of more than
50 percent, pushing annual recurring revenue over $100 million. The
company was also named a Leader in The
Forrester Wave™: Low-Code Development Platforms For AD&D Pros, Q1 2019

and ranked highest in the current offering category.
