Outsystems brings Low Code Cloud-Based Development Platform to AWS’s Africa (Cape Town) Region

Johannesburg, 26 April, 2022 - OutSystems, a global leader in low-code application development, has announced that the OutSystems Low Code Cloud platform is now available in AWS’s Africa (Cape Town) Region.

The OutSystems platform enables customers to build mission-critical apps that can transform the customer experience, accelerate workplace innovation, and optimise the business process. This all takes place in the OutSystems Cloud and eliminates network latency and performance issues. 

“The arrival of the OutSystems cloud platform in AWS’s Africa (Cape Town) Regionis a true game-changer for the local app development and deployment landscape,” according to Rodrigo Castelo, VP Middle East and Africa at OutSystems. “The platform will benefit African companies of all sizes with reduced latency, including entities in regulated environments such as banking, insurance, and government organisations.”

“For SMEs, our cloud app development platform provides access to advanced IT technologies that were previously only available to large enterprises, which will drive further entrepreneurship and innovation. The OutSystems platform offers enterprise-grade security, ensuring applications are secure from design time through deployment and operations,” he continues.

“This allows us to extend our offerings to companies throughout Africa, including business value consulting, cloud migration, and - most importantly - our education program to boost talent in the region.”

Having entered into a multi-year agreement with Amazon Web Services (AWS), OutSystems has paved the way for customers to employ enhanced DevOps, data and analytics, artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), and other AWS services in applications ranging from basic to mission-critical.

The OutSystems cloud platform to AWS’s Africa (Cape Town) Region comes amid growing demand for cloud-computing services in the country and across the continent, especially in light of the global pandemic that has driven adoption of remote-working policies. According to the Cloud in Africa 2020 reportby World Wide Worx, 82% of South African decision-makers increased their cloud services spend last year, followed by 59% in Zimbabwe and 50% in Nigeria and Botswana.

With the OutSystems and AWS collaboration, developers throughout Africa will be able to build applications more quickly and easily using the OutSystems platform available from the new Africa (Cape Town) Region. With benefits spanning such as lower latency and compliance with data residency requirements, it’s exciting to see OutSystems continue to build world-class application development for enterprises and small businesses.” concludes Nicolas Pujol, EMEA Partner Management Leader for ISVs at AWS.
