OutSystems Named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms for the Second Year in a Row


New report states that mobile app and web development technologies
and practices have converged to support digital business

OutSystems was again named a Leader in Gartner's
Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms
, positioned
highest overall on the ability to execute axis in the entire Magic
Quadrant for the second consecutive year.

OutSystems believes this latest Gartner report makes it clear - IT
leaders need to deliver a much wider range of experiences to support
their enterprise digital transformation initiatives.

Beyond traditional "mobile only" features, the new breed of mobile
platforms must support the following:

  • App diversity, including responsive web apps, wearables, and augmented
  • Full-stack, low-code development supporting everything from UX to
    back-end integration
  • End-to-end DevOps and lifecycle management of large app portfolios
  • Diverse enterprise use cases, including external-facing and
    internal-facing scenarios

"We believe Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development
Platforms lines up exactly with what we're hearing from our customers,"
said Paulo Rosado, OutSystems CEO. "Modern development teams need
solutions that support incredibly diverse enterprise application use
cases that can be developed and changed at the speed of business."

According to Gartner, "Leaders have a strong combination of Ability to
Execute and Completeness of Vision. In the MADP sector, this means that
Leaders are not only good at cross-platform development, deployment and
management across the full life cycle, but also demonstrate strong
vision for multi-experience development support. A Leader must also have
open architectures and support open standards, while showing a solid
understanding of IT requirements, and scalable sales channels and
partnerships. Leaders must provide platforms that are easy to purchase,
program, deploy and upgrade, and which can connect to a range of systems
of record and third-party cloud services."

"A Leader in Their Field for a Good Reason, the Only Low-Code Platform
to Consider. Our overall experience with OutSystems has been fantastic,
in that the technology does what we need it to do, and the OutSystems
team assisted us early on with much of our questions and concerns."

"Since I discovered OutSystems my life as a developer changed. Now I am
able to develop an application from start to finish in less time and
with better quality....OutSystems as a development platform for mobile
devices has the advantage of integrating, in the same unifying language,
versions for iOS and Android, breaking the barriers between both."

"Quickest Path To Manufacturing Digital Transformation. We have been
very satisfied with the capabilities of the OutSystems platform. It
helps us develop applications without the need for deep programming
experience. We developed an application that caters to 100+ machines and
to be eventually used by 1000+ operators and the sole developer of this
application is a new grad with very little practical experience." Asia
