Update: OutSystems Enters U.S. Market; Offers Free Version of Advanced Application Development and Management Platform
IT Teams Develop and Deploy New Applications in Weeks; Manage Changes Within Days
REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 15, 2007 -- OutSystems Inc. today announced the
general availability of the OutSystems Express Edition, a
lightweight edition of the OutSystems Platform
4.1, free for up to five users that can be downloaded for commercial or
independent developer use. The download is available today at
The OutSystems Platform has been in use in Europe for several years by
leading companies including Bristol-Myers Squibb, E.ON, Bosch, and
Unilever, but has not been widely available in the U.S. market until now.
Many customers have used OutSystems to rapidly build a large portfolio of
applications, including building nine applications in nine months in one
case, and to integrate with on-premise and on-demand application silos such
as SAP, Oracle, salesforce.com and industry-specific systems.
The OutSystems Express Edition offers individuals, small IT departments or
departmental IT teams a comprehensive Application Development and
Management solution that enables them to rapidly develop and deploy
business-specific applications in a matter of weeks instead of months on
top of .NET or Java. It combines the productivity offered by visual
modeling tools with the level of extensibility and customization found in
integration suites or custom development frameworks. And applications built
in OutSystems can be modified even faster with changes deployed at runtime,
eliminating the typical downtime associated with application maintenance.
"The cycle of business application deployment and change management is
broken. IT departments need a way to rapidly develop, maintain, and control
custom applications to complement large, inflexible application silos to
meet unique business requirements," said Paulo Rosado, CEO, OutSystems.
"With the launch of the OutSystems Express Edition, we are giving everyone
the opportunity to create, deploy, and modify business applications faster,
better, and with a lot less pain. We believe this is a better way for IT
teams to address business needs and keep in step with market changes."
OutSystems Express Edition is available for download and usage at no
charge, but is limited to five application users and one application
server. It allows users to experience first hand all the advantages of the
OutSystems Platform with no upfront investment.
As part of OutSystems Express Edition, users can also access the OutSystems
IT Asset Manager application that enables IT professionals to automatically
scan, discover and manage network assets. Developed with the OutSystems
Platform, it is openly distributed so that it can be modified and extended
to address the specific needs of each users.
OutSystems markets the OutSystems Platform, a solution that completely
re-engineers the process of developing, deploying, and maintaining
enterprise applications. OutSystems helps IT departments become highly
effective service organizations where applications are deployed in half the
time and constant organizational changes and user feedback can be reflected
in hours or days. Total operation costs are reduced by at least 30% when
compared with traditional alternatives. To learn more, visit
