OutSystems’ $360 Million Funding Round Boosts Valuation Above $1 Billion

Low-code platform OutSystems has proven today that there is quite a market for fast application development without the need to learn code. The proof comes from the $360 million in funding the company received, along with its new valuation the company described as “well over” $1 billion.

Today’s funds come from KKR and Goldman Sachs, which now have a minority stake in the Atlanta, Georgia-based company. OutSystems’ total funding now stands at $422 million. The company will use today’s investment to accelerate expansion and boost software automation R&D efforts.

“We believe we are in the early innings of what will be an extended period of significant growth in the low-code application development market, and we are very excited to be backing a category leader like OutSystems,” said Stephen Shanley, director at KKR.

OutSystems leverages AI, automation and third party integrations to help users build their own apps in a visual way, without the need to know or learn to code. This approach not only cuts down on development costs, it also makes for a much faster time-to-launch.

Founded in 2001, OutSystems has revenues of $100+ million and is growing that figure at more than 70% per year. The company’s 700 employees serve thousands of customers in more than 50 countries. OutSystems’ client list includes Toyota, Logitech, Deloitte, Ricoh, Schneider Electric, and GM Financial.

At FinDEVr New York 2017, OutSystems gave a presentation titled Low-Code, The Next Evolution in App Dev Platforms (Oh, and 5X Faster). Last month, the company launched OutSystems Sentry, a new proactive security monitoring service for the company’s PaaS clients. And In April, OutSystems partnered with Atos to help companies accelerate their digital transformation initiatives.
