Editor's comments:
  • This is a game changing move.
  • Many enterprises are slow to adopt AI due to the high cost of investment because AI projects are considered more R&D than ROI nature.
  • This launch will yield greater adoptions of OutSystems in the enterprise space, especially in the APAC region where the focus on AI development is still lukewarm.
  • Startups in the APAC region have higher adoption rates of AI development than enterprises.
