Deloitte, OutSystems extend strategic alliance to include solutions on AWS
September 29, 2021
OutSystems, a global player in modern application development, and Deloitte Consulting, have expanded their 13-year alliance to include a Center of Excellence (COE) focused on providing cloud-based industry solutions utilising Amazon Web Services (AWS) on a global scale. Together, Deloitte, OutSystems, and AWS provide shared clients with the ability to develop and deploy new, innovative enterprise applications at a faster pace with fewer resources than ever before.
Deloitte and OutSystems first joined forces in Portugal in 2007 and have since delivered more than 100 digital transformation and software development projects in Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Canada, and the US through more than 300 Deloitte professionals certified on OutSystems. Deloitte is an AWS Premier Consulting Partner that provides specialisation in a host of AWS-enabled business solutions, each of which can be efficiently integrated to meet clients’ needs where and when they need it most.
The Red Cross Netherlands recently tapped into the joint capabilities of OutSystems, Deloitte, and AWS to rapidly build new applications for volunteer management and coordination. The three organisations enabled the Red Cross to massively and effectively scale operations amid increased demand and rapidly changing needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“By leveraging the power of the OutSystems platform, the experience of the Deloitte team, and the scalability of AWS, we were able to develop a user-centric and future-proof solution in only a matter of weeks. We’re now developing digital experiences in weeks instead of months, connecting over 100,000 people in ways that we didn’t think about a year ago. With OutSystems and Deloitte we’re confident that we’ll be able to adapt and meet the evolving needs of 2021,” said Hans Goedhart, Manager Information Provision & ICT at the Red Cross.
With this new agreement, Deloitte US, the largest Deloitte member firm, will broaden the Deloitte Global COE-Based Service Delivery and Software Productization Practice leveraging the OutSystems development platform. This alliance offers clients the ability to simplify project delivery efforts and realise business value faster by accelerating time-to-market, reducing ongoing application support and development costs, and retiring or replacing ineffective or inefficient applications and infrastructure, thereby accelerating transformation. Deloitte will offer accelerators and assets across industries to deliver business value with the OutSystems platform.
“OutSystems is addressing one of the biggest problems facing businesses today – the lack of speed and agility of traditional software development,” said Carlos Alves, COO at OutSystems. “Our high-productivity, modern development platform automates and simplifies complexity, but with the power and expressiveness of traditional development. This approach radically transforms the way our customers build, deploy, and most importantly, evolve their critical applications. Deloitte’s deep industry and cloud expertise builds on top of the proven capabilities of the OutSystems platform, enabling our joint customers to realise the full strategic benefits of digital transformation.”
“Speed, architectural soundness, and continuous evolution are paramount for businesses to keep pace with the market and workforce needs,” said Tim Smith, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, and US Offering Leader – Core Industry Solutions of Deloitte. “The range of solutions we can help deliver with OutSystems is vast – from customer experience transformation and workplace innovation, to process automation, legacy modernisation, and more. The ability to build and evolve apps in one platform is the reason we’ve teamed with OutSystems.”
