Developer tools specialist OutSystems has released its Agile Platform 7 product with a promise to reduce bottlenecks resulting from developer-to-operations disconnects. With a heavy "DevOps collaboration" theme from the start, the company says it has engineered its latest offering to provide ALM visibility and control, while at the same time streamlining change-management process functions.
So then, is more of the same from a "me-too" technology vendor? One would imagine so from the arguably generic introduction provided for this new product. OutSystems CEO Paulo Rosado says that Agile Platform 7 introduces LifeTime, a new Agile platform component for ALM that provides methods for simplifying the effort and associated risk with "staging an application" from development to production.
But of more tangible substance here we find support for multi-tenant applications to provide developers with a simplified experience for building multi-tenant applications that require full data isolation.
… and also:
- A single console to monitor and manage the application portfolio to maximize transparency and improve collaboration.
- A good security model to help share operational activities while maintaining control.
"In Agile Platform 7 new features allow development teams to focus on delivering a high value single tenant application and let the Agile platform handle all necessary multi-tenancy needs. This new multi-tenancy feature-set has long been requested by our ISV customers and prospects and it has finally arrived, allowing them to build next-generation SaaS applications with the speed and flexibility," said OutSystems' Rosado.
Agile Platform 7 brings capabilities for interfaces for web and mobile applications to the Java world. From version 7 forward all the new features of the product will be supported on both the Java and .NET stacks simultaneously.
