Mike Hughes, director of product marketing for OutSystems
The flexibility of OutSystems is unmatched in the industry. Using our visual development environment, organizations of all sizes accelerate their development timelines. Whether it’s to bring legacy systems up-to-date or to develop new full-stack cross-platform mobile apps, our low-code platform and single-click deployment make it easy for our customers to transform business.

Low-code is a perfect choice for any organization with ambitious digital goals. Not all low-code platforms are ideal for all use cases, though. Some solutions billed as low-code are actually “no-code.” Most may not require a working knowledge of programming languages, but they are limited, and eventually, the “citizen developers” who use them will hit a wall with what they can actually do with it.

On the other end are “low-code” solutions that really do require professional developers, if not for the actual development, then for deployment and maintenance. For any of these solutions to work where they aren’t specifically designed to, the solution’s core functionality has to change or additional services purchased to make it fit. Either way, it’s additional cost and additional complexity. OutSystems sits in the low-code sweet spot, offering the simplicity of visual development that citizen developers need while being powerful enough that professional developers can build on our software and customize it however they want.
