Rafay Systems announced the general availability of its turnkey, SaaS-based offering designed to confront a complex set of ongoing challenges enterprises and service providers face when modernizing their applications.
OutSystems, which delivered six new releases of its flagship development environment in the fourth quarter, has added a variety of new and innovative features to the product, further simplifying and accelerating how enterprise software is built. The latest innovation is a styles editor built directly into the visual development environment that dramatically reduces UX development time.
“Our developer community has grown by more than 60 percent over the last six months,” said Mário Araújo, Head of Developer Relations at OutSystems. “We consider developers our extended team, and we obsess over how to make things easier for them. Every time we release a feature that simplifies development and reduces ramp-up time for new developers, we know we’re contributing to their productivity. Best of all, we’re helping them deliver value to the business.”
These six releases demonstrate how committed OutSystems is to the growing low-code community. OutSystems already provides customizable app templates and components so developers without visual design expertise can rapidly create beautiful user experiences simply by dragging and dropping. The new styles editor allows developers and UX professionals to further customize the experience without the need for any CSS coding, cutting the time it takes to refine the user experience in half.
“Crafting unique, elegant user experiences helps organizations to differentiate their solutions and win over new customers,” said João Grazina, Front-End Product Manager at OutSystems. “CSS is a challenge for many developers. It requires specialized knowledge to establish the necessary best practices and to deal with the complexity of multiple browsers and devices. Those skills are hard to find. We’ve now made it incredibly easy and visual, with no CSS coding.”
