OutSystems Unveils its Generative AI Roadmap to Transform the Way Enterprises Develop, Edit and Extend Mission-Critical Applications

OutSystems, a global leader in high-performance application development, announced new AI capabilities – including the broad availability of new connectors for Azure OpenAI, built in partnership with Microsoft – and roadmap for a new set of generalized AI capabilities, dubbed “Project Morpheus”.

The new services are the latest release from OutSystems’ dedicated AI research center and build on numerous patents and deep expertise in large language models and graph neural networks. disaster. OutSystems’ use of AI delivers significant improvements in code quality, overall development performance, and critical security and administrative oversight.

“OutSystems is absolutely focused on developer productivity without tradeoffs,”
“When we developed our first product, software was a manual process and most development projects across every industry and company size shipped late and over budget. We heard this over and over again. This is where we directed our mission back then, and it’s how we’ve evolved it to today. Our AI platform makes dev teams orders of magnitude more efficient. Unlike other vendors who happily check the box on AI and speed, we know that’s just the surface. Our deep investment in an AI-backed platform, with strict oversight and built-in governance, helps ensure every app meets the highest standards of enterprise readiness.”
Paulo Rosado, Founder and CEO of OutSystems.

Enrich the app experience with the new Azure Open AI connector

Now widely available, the new OutSystems Connector for ChatGPT makes it easy to build AI-powered apps with little code in minutes. By allowing developers to easily harness the power of generative AI in their applications, they can expand to new use cases and unlock new capabilities with a conversational-like experience. work. For example, advanced customer support, virtual assistants, travel and booking apps, language translation, and more.

Unleash the power of synthetic AI without sacrificing control

With Project Morpheus, developers of any skill level can build apps that meet their unique needs through rapid iteration and AI-powered assistance. Generative AI creates an initial version of the app in minutes, then allows developers to quickly customize the app using the AI ​​engine by making real-time change recommendations incorporating best practices according to industry standards.

Key features of OutSystems generative AI roadmap include:

  • Instant app generation using conversational prompts: Instead of writing code, developers can use natural language inputs to describe an application, and generative AI will do the heavy lifting of building the app. This adds significant efficiency and enables a broader talent pool to contribute to app development.
  • AI-powered app editor offering ongoing suggestions: Leveraging the current ecosystem of OutSystems apps to fine-tune complex generative AI models, OutSystems will provide full-stack suggestions, from data to UI, that can be used to change apps in an errorless experience.
  • Real-time, full-stack, visual representations of app changes: To eliminate the “black box problem” created by generative AI—where prolific code creation can make it hard to verify what’s happening inside the system—OutSystems visual language will make it easy to validate the output of generative AI, while state-of-the-art compiler technology will enable deterministic detection of threats and code patterns produced by generative AI mechanisms.
  • Expansive ecosystem of connectors: Customers can easily build AI-powered apps in a matter of minutes with connectors to common services from Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and other third-party providers.

New features focused on building highly adaptive app experiences, harnessing the power of generalized AI to accelerate time to market, empowering multiple junior developers, and non-programmers, and allows for rapid change and interaction. This ensures that all AI-powered applications continue to provide the same level of business functionality and unlimited customization that customers need to meet the increasingly complex demands placed on IT.

“The AI-powered guidance of OutSystems helps our new developers become fully productive much faster, and it allows junior developers to deploy applications like a senior developer. For us, as we’re scaling our low-code Center of Excellence and recruiting hundreds of new developers, that kind of productivity gain is critical,”
Igor Rigotti, Head of the Low-Code Center of Excellence at Petrobras.
