Microsoft PowerApps vs OutSystems in our news:

2016. Microsoft launched its no-coding app builder



Microsoft opened the new service PowerApps that allows anybody to build basic business apps without having to touch any code. These apps can run on the web and on mobile (through the PowerApps apps for iOS and Android).  Building apps in PowerApps is mostly a drag-and-drop affair. While the service offers an online dashboard, the design work happens in a Windows 10 desktop app. It also offers a number of templates for a couple of standard use cases. For the most part, though, building new apps from scratch is pretty straightforward — though maybe not quite as trivial as Microsoft’s marketing wants to make it look.


2016. OutSystems raises $55M for its app delivery platform



OutSystems, the service that helps enterprises quickly build mobile business apps, announced that it has raised a $55 million funding. Using the company’s platform, enterprise developers can quickly build applications that integrate with a number of third-party business applications. These include the likes of SAP, Salesforce.com, Workday and others. The core of the service is a graphical development tool. Developers can take the code this tool generates and extend it, but for many use cases, OutSystems users don’t have to touch any code.
