Outsystems Identifies Roadblocks to Digital Transformation in APAC

Mar 31, 2017

OutSystems, the number one low-code platform for digital transformation, has recently published its Asia-Pacific: State of Application Development 2017 Research Report. Leaders in the region are increasingly concerned about technology and IT, and digital transformation in the region set to be worth $16.5 billion by 2020.

This report accounts for the perspectives of more than 680 professionals in APAC, on the state of digital transformation. Some interesting finds from the report include:
  • Almost half (45%) of respondents reported having a large backlog of mobile apps as they are unable to keep up with the current level of demand
  • 42% of respondents reported facing a shortage of skilled mobile developers, who are difficult to find and expensive to hire
  • Almost three-quarters (69%) of respondents reported average app development times of more than 3 months, which is not up to business requirements
