BOSTON – June 21, 2023 – OutSystems [2], a global leader in
high-performance application development, today announced new AI
features – including the general availability of its new connector for
Azure OpenAI, built jointly with Microsoft – and its roadmap for a new
suite of generative AI capabilities, codenamed “Project Morpheus.”

The new offerings are the latest output of OutSystems dedicated AI
research center and draw on its multiple patents and deep expertise in
large language models and graph neural networks. OutSystems’ use of
AI delivers dramatic improvements in code quality, overall development
performance, and essential security and governance oversight.

“OutSystems is absolutely focused on developer productivity without
tradeoffs,” said Paulo Rosado, Founder and CEO of OutSystems.
“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.”

Enriching App Experiences with New Azure Open AI Connector
Now in general availability, the new OutSystems connector for ChatGPT
makes it easy to build AI-powered applications with low-code in a
matter of minutes. By enabling developers to easily harness the power
of generative AI within their applications, they can expand into new
use cases and unlock new possibilities with interactive conversational
experiences. Examples of this include enhanced customer support,
virtual assistants, travel and booking applications, language
translations, and more.

Unleashing the Power of Generative AI without Sacrificing Control
With Project Morpheus, developers of any skill level can build apps
that fit their unique requirements through rapid iteration and
AI-powered assistance. Generative AI will create an initial version of
an application in a matter of minutes, and then allow developers to
quickly customize the application with the AI engine giving real-time
change suggestions that incorporate industry-standard best practices.

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

The new features focus on building highly adaptive app experiences
that leverage the power of generative AI to accelerate time-to-market,
empower more junior developers and non-coders and enable rapid change
and interaction. This ensures that any AI-generated apps continue to
provide the same level of enterprise-grade features and limitless
customizations that customers need to meet the increasingly complex
demands being 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,” said Igor
Rigotti, Head of the Low-Code Center of Excellence at Petrobras.
