What are the benefits of the OutSystems platform?

In the past years, OutSystems, a low-code development platform, has gained a lot of popularity in the software development world. With its ability to quickly create and deploy custom applications, OutSystems has become the go-to choice for businesses of all sizes. This article will explore the benefits of using OutSystems and why it is a game-changer in the industry.

OutSystems sets itself apart from other development platforms through the combination of low-code and predictive artificial intelligence capabilities. This enables developers to create complex applications with little to no coding effort. Front-ends can be created by dragging and dropping components on a canvas, while back-end logic can be developed using the same visual language. This allows developers to build full-stack applications faster and easier. No more going back and forth between back-end and front-end developers, everything in one central environment. Although this suffices in 90-95% of all cases, the platform also gives developers the possibility to dive into the HTML and CSS or add custom code snippets, giving you maximal flexibility. This means you can build applications of any complexity from simple mobile apps to complex enterprise systems in one platform.

But OutSystems provides more than just an easier way to develop applications. Enterprise applications need to be integrated in your complete IT landscape and pull and push data to any system. That's why OutSystems provides seamless integration through its vast library of pre-built connectors and integrations, called the forge. This feature makes it easy to connect to a wide range of third-party systems without the need for custom code. But also the consumption or exposure and SOAP web services is a standard functionality that just takes minutes, including automatic documentation.

Another key advantage is scalability, something that most IT departments struggle with. OutSystems is capable of handling large volumes of data and user traffic, and its architecture is designed to be horizontally scalable. This means that additional resources can be added as needed to handle increased traffic and workload, making it an ideal platform for applications that need to handle large amounts of data and traffic.

What about the predictive AI capabilities? OutSystems uses this in different areas f.e. to make suggestions and minimize the number of clicks. But it also has an AI Mentor System that has a set of ground-breaking AI-based development and quality analysis tools that support you throughout the software development lifecycle. This system guides you with your code, architecture, security, performance, and maintainability.

Finally, OutSystems is a cost-effective solution that does not only help you to develop more and deliver faster with the same resources, it lowers the time spend on maintenance too. And let’s be honest, who likes spending lots of time maintaining applications?

In conclusion, OutSystems goes way beyond low-code development. That's why we believe that OutSystems can and is changing the future of software development drastically. With its accelerated development cycle, seamless integration, scalability, and cost-effectiveness, it’s becoming a popular choice for businesses of all sizes. If you’re looking to create custom applications quickly and efficiently, this platform is worth considering.
