Streamlining Workflows with Low-Code/No-Code Platforms: A Focus on OutSystems

Streamlining Workflows with Low-Code/No-Code Platforms: A Focus on OutSystems

The IT sector, a font of new and interesting trends, has come up with one that until recently was unknown to me: hyperautomation. It’s a term for the combination of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and robotic process automation (RPA) to streamline and optimise complex business workflows. It matters to DSS because it matters to our customers, nearly all of which have an interest in automating their processes and relying less on manual labour. And we’ve been hyperautomating for those customers by developing software for them with the OutSystems low-code platform, which offers an intuitive and efficient way to develop and deploy automated solutions.

Let’s tease out the concept of hyperautomation and how OutSystems can deliver it.


The Low-Code/No-Code Proposition

Traditional software development can be time-consuming and resource-intensive. However, OutSystems and other low-code/no-code platforms address this challenge by providing visual development interfaces and pre-built components, enabling both developers and non-technical users to create applications with minimal coding and significantly accelerating the application development lifecycle.


OutSystems comes with a host of capabilities:

Rapid Application Development

OutSystems enables organisations to swiftly develop and deploy applications that automate key business processes. Its visual modelling capabilities allow developers to quickly create workflows and define automation logic, significantly reducing the time required to implement hyperautomation solutions.

Visual Modelling and Drag-and-Drop Functionality

OutSystems\’ visual development environment simplifies the creation of complex workflows. Developers can visually design the flow of data and actions, making it easier to automate processes that involve multiple systems and applications.

Seamless Integration with Existing Systems

OutSystems seamlessly integrates with existing IT infrastructure, allowing organizations to leverage their investments in legacy systems and databases. This integration capability ensures that hyperautomation solutions can access and interact with the necessary data sources and systems.

Agile Iterative Development

OutSystems supports an agile development approach, enabling organizations to iterate quickly and incorporate feedback throughout the development cycle. This iterative process ensures that hyperautomation solutions align with business requirements and deliver the expected outcomes.

Enhanced Collaboration between Business and IT

OutSystems fosters collaboration between business users and IT teams, breaking down silos and enabling cross-functional collaboration. By involving business users in the development process, organisations can ensure that hyperautomation solutions meet their specific needs and deliver tangible business value.

The Key to OutSystems Success: Expertise

While hyperautomation offers immense benefits, expertise is critical to its successful implementation. For example, there are likely security and compliance considerations, scalability, and performance optimization. The good news is that DSS has over time invested in hiring and upskilled OutSystems specialists who have built a proud record of successful deployments. Our customers get the benefit of that expertise every time they turn to us for a new OutSystems project.
