OutSystems announced new digital customer experience (CX) capabilities that enable any organization to quickly and easily deliver high-quality, omnichannel experiences that compete with the CX leaders and drive high user adoption.

“OutSystems is on a mission to eradicate ugly apps,” said Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems. “CX champions, like Uber and Amazon, have radically raised the bar when it comes to amazing user experiences – completely resetting customer expectations. Companies today, no matter their industry, have to match or exceed if they want to survive. With these new CX capabilities, OutSystems has leveled the playing field, making it extremely easy for any company to build great apps that rival the CX leaders, using the skills of their existing teams.”

The new OutSystems features help organizations accelerate their end-to-end customer experience transformation and deliver highly personalized omnichannel digital customer experiences up to 10 times faster than traditional development and without the constraints of “off-the-shelf” software packages.

OutSystems helps organizations deliver high-quality, highly personalized omnichannel customer experiences with the following new CX capabilities:

- Experience Builder for native-feel mobile applications: The new Experience Builder abstracts away the complexities of assembling the multiple pieces of the interfaces that make for an engaging, pixel-perfect mobile experience, allowing developers to focus on what matters most: delivering great user experiences. An easy-to-use web interface, coupled with development accelerators, such as fully customizable application flows and screen templates with built-in native behaviors, ensures teams can deliver experiences faster with the quality standards customers expect.

- Reactive web technology built-in, for high-performing, rich, client-side development: Deliver engaging experiences that are consistent across mobile and web, with rich, interactive interfaces and a modern technology stack. Interfaces are easily assembled using state-of-the-art UI building blocks that are reusable across channels, reflect CX best practices, and result in increased delivery speed and experience quality. A single language and codebase means existing developers can be more productive and the business can meet their needs at a faster pace and lower cost.

- Progressive Web Application (PWA) support for increased customer adoption and retention rates: Engage customers and employees through a new channel - easily discoverable applications that don’t need to be deployed and downloaded through the app stores, reducing obstacles to adoption. These apps are automatically packaged by the OutSystems platform and deliver high-performing, native-like experiences that take advantage of device integration, and work offline – all using the same codebase as their browser or native counterparts, and without compromising on experience quality.

- Conversational experiences everywhere: Meet customers in the chat and voice platforms they interact with most. Whether using Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger for chat, or Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, and Cortana for voice, by providing development teams with building blocks and a framework to create the most common chatbot and voice interaction patterns, OutSystems removes the complexity and uncertainty of building these kinds of interfaces. Businesses can easily adopt, experiment, and scale first-line of support automation, internal support bots, and other conversational use cases, faster and without needing specialized AI developers.

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure. Rather than focus the business around a single location, enterprises are now comprised of a web of remote offices and individuals, where network connectivity has broken down the geographic barriers that in the past limited the availability of talent and resources. Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
