In its fifth year, the goal of the OutSystems State of Application Development Report is to provide a comprehensive analysis of the challenges, priorities, and innovations faced by IT teams around the globe in this age of digital transformation.
This analysis is based on the responses to a survey conducted in March 2018. More than 3,500 IT professionals from over 116 countries took part. Respondents worked in all kinds of industry, and in this concise summary of the report, we focus on specific findings related to the manufacturing sector.
The need for digital transformation dominates business strategy today, and there are two obvious consequences for IT. Firstly, the demand for application development (app dev) is at an all-time high. Secondly, speed and agility are more important than ever before.
This backdrop informed the themes we wanted to explore in this year’s survey, which set out to answer five critical questions:

In its sixth year, the OutSystems State of Application Development Report provides a comprehensive analysis of the challenges, priorities, and innovations faced by IT teams around the globe, at a time when organizational agility has never been so important.
Agility is the central theme of this year’s report because businesses and their IT organizations face a multitude of disruptive forces in 2019. The threat of digital disruption and the consequent need for digital transformation has been a driver of IT strategy for years. Add to that the current uncertain global economic outlook, and it becomes obvious why business leaders are so concerned about agility today.
How will IT “step up to the plate” and ensure that their organizations have the speed and adaptability to thrive, despite uncertainty?
This context serves as the backdrop to our sixth annual survey of IT professionals as we seek to understand the state of application development better. We set out with five critical questions

Getting the most out of A/B and other controlled tests.
In the fast-moving digital world, even experts have a hard time assessing new ideas. Case in point: At Bing a small headline change an employee proposed was deemed a low priority and shelved until one engineer decided to do a quick online controlled experiment—an A/B test—to try it out. The test showed that the change increased revenue by an astonishing 12%.
That experience illustrates why it’s critical to adopt an “experiment with everything” approach, say Ron Kohavi, the head of the Analysis & Experimentation team at Microsoft, and Stefan Thomke, an HBS professor.
In this article they describe: How to properly design and execute A/B and other controlled tests
? Ensure test integrity
? How to interpret results and avoid pitfalls
Storing data is critical. Everyone stores data. Today, it’s all about how you use the data you’re storing and if you’re storing the right data. The right mix of data and the ability to analyze it against all data types is driving markets worldwide in what is known as digital transformation.
Digital transformation requires storing, accessing, and analyzing all types of data as fast and efficiently as possible. The end goal is to derive insights and gain a competitive advantage by using those insights to move faster and deliver smarter products and services than your competition.

The guide to how SQL Server 2008 end-of-service can drive IT modernization.
End-of-service presents serious risks to your organisation if you don’t deal with it correctly—or worse—if you don’t deal with it at all, including the
loss of access to critical security updates and Microsoft hotfixes. Also, if you don’t take action, your organisation will be exposed to potential disruption from hackers and malware. That means valuable customer data could be exposed to attack, risking monetary and reputational damage. And from a regulatory standpoint, there could be compliance issues with rules such as HIPAA, PCI, and GDPR.
On the other hand, if you take well-considered action that aligns with your long-term strategy, end-of-service is also an opportunity for data estate
In this e-book, we’ll discuss how migration to Azure as part of your fix for SQL Server 2008 end-of-service solves for all these, and opens doors for the future of your data-driven business.

Companies have long emphasized touchpoints - the many critical moments when customers interact with the organization and its offerings on their way to purchase and after. But the narrow focus on maximizing satisfaction at those moments can create a distorted picture, suggesting that customers are happier with the company than they actually are. It also diverts attention from the bigger - and more important - picture: the customer's end-to-end journey. Download this white paper to learn more about customer experience.

Data Analytics has become critical for many business decision makers. However, many of these managers and data analysts still rely on spreadsheets and other legacy-era tools that fall far short of current needs. As a result, they also rely heavily on a virtual army of data specialists and scientists, working under the auspices of a centralized analytics group, to prepare, blend, analyze, and even report on the critical data they need for decision making.

Speed is increasingly becoming the most important factor in project execution for a modern business. Of course, it has always been important to deliver projects as quickly as possible—that’s why schedules were developed and managed to. But historically those schedules were usually rather arbitrary. Today, things are very different. Customers expect more functionality more quickly than ever before, and they are unwilling to tolerate delays or missed commitments.
Organizations have recognized the importance of minimizing time to delivery, seeking to leverage opportunities and solve challenges in as little time as possible, but in doing so they have frequently forgotten one critical aspect. They aren’t actively managing those time horizons—they are simply careening headlong toward the end goal. That can introduce significant problems, and that’s what we want to look at in this white paper.
