Technology for an unpredictable future

New technologies are released every day, and existing ones constantly evolve. 
 It can be challenging to know what new technologies are worth betting on and investing in.

You need to take risks to become a leader. Forward-thinking technology leaders can reinvent their business model and innovate to promote business growth in any situation.

Businesses with old legacy systems and complex ecosystems risk being left behind – especially if they don’t build the architecture they need to leverage future technologies. It’s challenging, expensive, and sometimes impossible to incorporate new technologies into old systems.

How can you enable your company to keep systems current while rapidly responding to future requirements?

You can modernise your technology portfolio by implementing 
 a modern application delivery platform, such as OutSystems. 

OutSystems works as a unifying layer, connecting all your systems and providing flexibility to existing ecosystems. It allows organisations to extend the functionality of existing system investments and create innovative applications leveraging emerging technologies, relevant now and in the near future. 

You don’t need to start from scratch. The OutSystems component repository of reusable, open code modules, connectors, and UI components allows you to unlock the benefits of new technologies without building them yourself.

Reduce risk and investment while innovating

Focusing on the following key points and avoiding these common mistakes is a great place to start.

1.  User and experience comes before technology

Innovation goes hand-in-hand with learning. IT and business users 
 need to work together without the back-and-forth of traditional 
 slow app development processes. Learning is part of the process. 
 If you are going to fail, you need to fail fast and learn even faster.

The capacity for change is an integral part of the OutSystems platform approach. 
 An enterprise modern delivery platform offers a fully integrated approach to development, quality assurance, governance, deployment, and management – 
 the entire application lifecycle – enabling it to support enterprise-scale application development. The platform can accommodate all stages – from mockup to an enterprise-grade digital product, making it easy to prototype, test and modify 
 your applications.

Traditionally, technology can quickly become obsolete even after you have 
 invested a lot of time and money implementing it, leading to a poor return on 
 your investment. However, when you develop applications with OutSystems, they are future-proof. OutSystems evolves its technology foundation as technologies evolve, taking advantage of new frameworks and capabilities whilst protecting 
 your investment in business solutions.


Here is how…

A platform that makes it easier to get access to any technology, now and in the future

With OutSystems, you can start using state of the art technologies now

Here are some examples:

Digital Identity Verification

Provide a modern customer onboarding experience with identity verification workflows for different customer identification scenarios. Perform face matching for opted-in users by comparing a photo with an identifying document like a driver’s license.

Video Call Validation 

Deliver video engagement to customers and employees for various use cases, including identity verification during customer onboarding or field services support.

Internet of Things (IoT)

The IoT is a giant network of connected “things” (which also includes people). Thanks to APIs, building a mobile application that connects physical devices with existing data and business processes is simple using OutSystems.

Digital Twins

A digital twin is, in essence, a computer program that uses real-world data derived from IoT, to create simulations that can predict faults or maintenance issues or how products will perform. Using OutSystems, you can integrate IoT, AI and software analytics to predict future trends and behaviours.

Self-Service Chatbot

Reduce pressure on call centres by providing AI-powered chatbots and the ability to escalate to a human support agent if required.

Customer and Employee Engagement Virtual Personal Assistant
