Mobile Paas OutSystems is working with VMware to provide OutSystems Platform as a solution for the rapid creation of mobile and web applications on vCloud Air.
According to OutSystems creating successful enterprise scale mobile solutions requires fundamental changes in architecture a position backed up by a recent Forrester report Mobile Needs a four-tier engagement platform which found , “Mobile is pushing aging web architectures to the brink. The three-tier architecture built for a browser-led PC world can’t flex, scale, or respond to the needs of a good mobile experience or the emerging requirements for connected products. Mobile’s volatility and velocity of change require a distributed four-tier architecture that we call an ‘engagement platform’.”
OutSystems rapid application delivery platform provides three key areas of benefit for vCloud Air customers:
1. Cross-platform development (mobile and web): OutSystems Platform enables a ‘build once for all devices’ approach, leveraging responsive design to create mobile web and hybrid multi-device applications without extra effort. Your applications will look amazing and work seamlessly across all form factors, by default.
2. Easy integration with both existing cloud and on-premises systems: Customers can reuse open source connectors or create their own, connect to software packages, current apps, and existing databases, and mash up data from several systems with visual flows.
3. High-productivity: Coupling a fundamentally more productive and efficient development environment, powered by robust visual modelling to create sophisticated applications, with streamlined deployment and feedback capture yields stunning productivity gains.
Commenting on the announcement Sean Allen, Director, Product Marketing at OutSystems said “The need for efficiency, speed and cost-savings are driving increasing numbers of enterprises to the cloud, and for many customers, vCloud Air is the perfect hybrid solution from a partner they already know and trust. We are pleased to be pairing the flexibility and fluidity of vCloud Air with the rapid delivery power and productivity benefits of OutSystems Platform, to give businesses the power needed to create an engagement platform for their mobile applications.”
