Following a lengthy tender process, Devon County Council has awarded a three-year contract to OutSystems for a low-code application development platform.
The council said, “We want to take advantage of the added simplicity, speed and functionality offered by the latest low-code application infrastructure technologies to develop better services for both citizens, staff and partners.
The council chose OutSystems, which allows end-users to build applications using a drag-and-drop graphical interface, rather than via complex text-based coding in order to create and launch new services quicker.
The council said, “A properly configured, highly functional and well-integrated low-code development platform will enable the much faster delivery of new services by a wider range of staff.
“By enabling the integration of various third-party and legacy systems, together with any new capabilities that are needed, we want to provide an environment that allows us to redesign, transform and deliver existing and new services.”
