Low-Code Development Platform OutSystems Forges Strategic Partnership with Atos

Low-code development platform for rapid application development OutSystems announced a strategic partnership in Ireland and the U.K. with digital transformation specialist, Atos. The companies will leverage their working relationships in other regions to provide a platform that will enable customers to “accelerat(e) their digital transformation initiatives.”

Atos’ Head of Technology  for the U.K. and Ireland, Howard Willliams, said OutSystems’ platform will enable Atos to “offer agile and innovative products and solutions that are delivered to our clients in weeks, rather than in months or years.” He pointed to the combination of low-code and DevOps in the cloud as an ideal way to deliver web-based mobile solutions that are both “enterprise-ready and customer-focused.” Atos will host Digital Transformation Now, OutSystems’ upcoming event focused on low-code development, as part of the agreement.

For OutSystems, the agreement helps broaden its reach into overseas markets. Bob Wilson, VP of Global Alliances and Channels at OutSystems, said, “We see this partnership with Atos as an opportunity to help our customers in the U.K. and Ireland rapidly develop enterprise-ready web and mobile applications that solve their business challenges in new and innovative ways.”

Recognized for its leadership in mobile application development platforms (MADP) and low-code development platforms by Gartner and Forrester, respectively, OutSystems helps firms build and manage better apps. With full-stack visual development – including drag-and-drop functionality for UI – and single-click deployment and updating, OutSystems serves customers in verticals ranging from banking and insurance to healthcare and retail.

Last year, OutSystems presented a talk titled Low-Code: The Next Evolution in App Dev Platforms (Oh, and 5x Faster) at our developers conference, FinDEVr New York. At the event, OutSystems’ Nuno Silveira (IT Architect) and Joao Miranda (IT Manager) discussed how the company was able to assist a European retail bank in a major digital transformation including mobile banking, internet banking, branch, and contact center solutions.

In March, OutSystems unveiled its Digital Transformation Hub, an online educational resource for IT leaders that features original research and analyst reports from Gartner, Forrester, and others on the topic of digital transformation. Also last month, the company announced the completion of a low-code development project with BlueVest. The project enabled the U.K.-based company to launch a digital underwriting app that provides initial loan quotes as fast as 15 minutes and confirmed offers in 30 minutes.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, OutSystems has raised more than $62 million in funding. The company includes North Bridge Venture Capital and Armilar Venture Partners among its investors. Paulo Rosado is CEO.
