Low-code application developer OutSystems has been recognised as a Leader in The Forrester Wave: Mobile Low-Code Development Platforms, Q1 2017.
“One of the keys to simplifying digital transformation, is the ability to deploy solutions seamlessly across web and mobile, making the customer experience frictionless,¨ says Craig Terblanche, regional director for OutSystems Southern Africa.
In one of the most comprehensive assessments of the low-code mobile development market, Forrester identified the 11 most significant vendors and evaluated them based on a rigorous 24-point evaluation. The result: OutSystems was recognised as a leader achieving the highest possible score in 13 criteria including integration, app scale and performance, mobile offline, number of customers, partner ecosystem, pricing strategy, and strategy assessment.
“We’re thrilled to be cited as a low-code leader in two Forrester Waves, one for general-purpose low-code development and now one specifically for mobile low-code development,” says Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems. “I believe that this is another great validation that the market is embracing low-code platforms for enterprise app development.”
According to Forrester, “Mobile low-code development platforms are an offshoot of the broader category of low-code platforms designed to support the particular needs of mobile apps … These products go beyond general-purpose low-code development platforms by including features closely associated with mobile infrastructure services platforms or mobile middleware products, including support for mobile notifications, enterprise mobile management tools, and support for offline caching and filtering of data when devices aren’t connected.”
Forrester recognised OutSystems as a leader, and also recognised the following points:
* OutSystems strong performance “reflects its commitment to enterprise customers via extensive low-code tooling for semi-professional and professional developers.”
* OutSystems strengths include its “broad features and tools for database, integration, and collaboration, coupled with an extensive set of mobile features.”
* OutSystems customer references “like the easy maintainability of the apps they’ve created, and the ability to use a wider range of developer skillsets to build mobile apps.”
