Persistent Systems is partnering with OutSystems for their digital and continuous transformation projects. “Across industries, our clients need the ability to capitalise their data and be future-proof,” explains Jacque White, Chief Customer Officer at Persistent Systems. “With low-code, we can rapidly design, develop, and deploy solutions that give our clients an immediate competitive advantage.”

Transnational E-Business provides leading logistics and technology projects in South East Asia. “Investing in OutSystems as a platform has allowed our organisation to accelerate our initiatives towards digital transformation,” explains Renvi R. Martinez, President and General Manager of Transnational E-Business Solutions, Inc. “We’re leveraging the OutSystems platform to identify new enterprise opportunities across the continent, where low-code gives us an advantage amongst both local and global organisations.”
L&T Infotech (LTI) is collaborating with OutSystems for global IT projects, with a relationship aimed at driving business value for mutual customers. “Our clients are looking at us to create rich experiences, transform processes and build new businesses and as the low-code leader, we believe the partnership with OutSystems will help us partner with our clients in their digital transformation efforts,” says Rohit Kedia , Chief Business Officer, Manufacturing and ERP Services, Americas, LTI.
PwC has built an OutSystems competence centre in Portugal to serve both European and American projects. By building a central team of certified developers, PwC can easily use the OutSystems platform for digital transformation projects around the world. “We’re embracing low-code for both new business opportunities and for new projects within existing accounts,” explained Miguel Pinto, Advisory Director of PwC Portugal. “The speed of development and delivery is unmatched, and without any compromise on the quality of the enterprise applications.”

By building them quickly, and designing them to scale from the start, we’re able to demonstrate a nuanced understanding of both the challenges and opportunities our clients face,” explains Luís Batista, Principal at Capgemini. “OutSystems is the ideal partner for the agile project development we practice.”
