2020 was a challenging year for everyone in the software industry and on a global scale. More than ever before, we saw the efforts made to harness technology and to digitise processes wherever possible. Our customers have had to swiftly adapt and innovate, and with our partner OutSystems, we're proud to have been able to support our customers through these new challenges.
The Forrester Wave is recognition of this. It's a 27-criterion evaluation of providers of low-code development platforms for professional developers, and identifies the 14 most significant. It illustrates how each provider measures up and helps software professionals select the right one for their needs.
The evaluation process breaks each provider down into categories: Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders, and Challengers. As a ‘Leader’, OutSystems have proven they can:
The Forrester Wave's evaluation of OutSystems concluded that they are:
"A long-standing leader of the low-code market and brings a unique vision of turning customers into elite software performers on its platform. Leading systems integrators (SIs) use it for pure-play low-code implementations and core application projects, and the firm enjoys significant market mindshare and credibility. They have superior tools for user experience (UX) development, data modelling and management, mobile development, and development process support and collaboration — all underpinned by leading investments in AI. The platform also generates accessible code (a unique feature among the Leaders in this wave), bringing practical benefits such as the ability to scan that code with third-party testing tools.”
One reference customer compared OutSystems with the experience of driving a Porsche! That kind of customer feedback has helped us identify some of the most popular features of the OutSystems solution - the ones that helped us build apps that gave our customers surety in an ever uncertain landscape:
It's features like these that have led to OutSystems' recognition as a Leader in the low-code development platform landscape. It's one of the best options for low-code core modernisation, the rapid development of many smaller application patterns and experiences, and a logical fit for customers looking for a deeply featured product and access to the application code.
