OutSystems Named SIIA Software CODiE Award Finalist for Best Mobile Application Development Solution

OutSystems announced today that the OutSystems Agile Platform 7.0, which enables IT teams to rapidly build, manage and maintain enterprise web and mobile applications, has been named a finalist for the 2013 SIIA Software CODiE Awards in the “Best Mobile Development Solution” category.

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier award for the software and information industries, recognizing product excellence for 27 years. The awards have more than 75 categories and are organized by industry focus of Content, Education and Software.

With the OutSystems Platform, companies rapidly deliver custom web and mobile applications that support nearly any device type. Once deployed, OutSystems eliminates the complexity and cost typically associated with modifying and updating applications, streamlining and simplifying change. As a result, developers can be as much as ten times more productive, and IT departments have more time and resources to deliver innovative solutions to support business requirements.

“Nearly every enterprise today has embraced mobile devices as a natural extension of their computing infrastructure,” said Jeff Newlin, vice president and general manager for OutSystems. “The problem we see too often is that these devices are rarely used for more than mobile email and calendaring. The business wants to use these devices to extend the workforce and drive innovation for a competitive advantage. To support these demands, IT needs a way to quickly and securely deliver mobile applications that provide new capabilities and extend the existing business systems and packages. These applications must also fit the form factor of the device and provide an awesome user experience. And, of course, IT must be able to change these mobile applications as quickly as the business needs change. That is what OutSystems does. We are very proud that our mobile application development capabilities have been recognized as a best-in-class solution.”

This year’s CODiE Awards featured 27 software categories, including 12 new and updated categories that reflect the continued growth and evolution of cloud computing, mobile, big data, and video. Winners will be announced at a May 9 Awards luncheon in San Francisco during All About the Cloud, the industry's most comprehensive ISV conference.

“The CODiE Awards competition was extremely competitive this year, and all of the finalists should be commended for their innovative products and services,” said Rhianna Collier, VP for the Software Division at SIIA. “We look forward to honoring the winners at our awards program in May at All About the Cloud.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
