Are you participating in GITEX Global 2022? If yes, which products and solutions will you be showcasing at the event?
GITEX Global 2022 is an important event to present the OutSystems high-performance low-code platform that provides tools for companies to develop, deploy, and manage custom enterprise applications.
The seamless digital platform allows companies to address IT pain points and overcome challenges by simplifying every stage of the app development and delivery process. Every aspect of the OutSystems platform is designed to help organizations develop, deliver, and evolve applications that drive modernization at the pace that business requires.
Finally, we would also like to talk about talent shortage and how the OutSystems high-performance low-code platform can help in reskilling resources fast to deliver custom enterprise applications. From recent graduates to skilled developers on other technologies, in a couple of weeks, these profiles can be trained on our platform. We are in the business of dramatically simplifying enterprise IT to drive faster delivery and lower TCO digital transformations.
What are your expectations from the event this year?
GITEX is an event where the entire regional IT community comes together to show their best and brightest. Companies will show what they did, vendors will show what they have to offer, and all, in general, will be exploring what the future looks like in terms of digital and technology.
This event provides an opportunity to address and discuss the needs of the software development sector within the region, the talent shortage that is pervasive across all countries, as well as meet our network of partners such as Starlink, FPT Software, Codelab, Amazon Web Services, and many more.
We are also interested in getting input from technology leaders concerning what they believe are the main innovations and trends fueling the industry. It is events like these that help us connect with our customers, audience, and stakeholders.
What will be your theme of participation at GITEX?
The theme of the participation at GITEX 2022 is to present OutSystems high-performance low-code application platform that enables organizations of all sizes to deftly tackle any kind of critical application – from legacy modernization and workplace innovation to customer experience transformation.
Using OutSystems high-performance low-code platform, customers have the tools to rapidly build, deploy, and manage their business-critical applications.
We are looking forward to initiating and spreading awareness concerning the impact and dangers of technical debt resulting from faulty legacy applications and software, as well as cloud adoption and uptake in the region, with the visible expansion of Amazon Web Services locations, now in UAE also.
How have your regional strategies changed in recent months?
At OutSystems, we strongly understand that our channel is vital to the success of our customers. We believe that being reciprocatively transparent with our partners in terms of our methodologies, tools, and processes to create a collaborative alliance while prioritizing the success of our clients.
