Featured Article in Platinum Business Magazine – The case for RAD Low Code

Jon Idle Product Statements

We have a double page article (p52/p53), in this months’ Platinum Business Magazine, and I’ve included a link below. If you are lucky enough to live in the Sussex / Surrey area, you may even pick up a free hard copy!

So, do you have a strategy around, or have considered low code, no code Rapid Application Development platforms? The article provides an introduction to the RAD space. If you think back, 10, 15 years ago, you needed specialist help to build a website, now with WordPress, GoDaddy, Wix.com, anyone can. A significant proportion of Software Development will, and is already going the same way. This area is really taking off and it’s no surprise that Gartner predict by 2018 more than half of B2E apps will be created using codeless tools. The ROI is just too good to ignore with the potential to deliver 1 year software projects in just 2 months.

The over-riding agent of change is traditional IT departments are already unable to cope with demands; not least the drive for Digital Transformation and Mobility. Add to this growing application backlogs, a majority of IT budgets consumed on supporting and maintaining the current tech stack, (yes 70% – 80%) restraining innovation, rising cost pressures and skills shortage, and something inevitably has to change.

 After assessing this space, OutSystems is our chosen solution. OutSystems is an award winning low code Rapid Application Development and Enterprise delivery environment (web apps / cross platform mobile). In a recent independent survey, 74% of OutSystems customers improved their speed of software delivery by 6x or more.
