OutSystems Founder and CEO Paulo Rosado will present on the most pressing topics for IT leaders – the role of generative AI in software development, building innovation with tight talent, differentiating the customer experience, and making the business case for low-code to achieve competitive advantage. IDC Analyst Dr. Michele Rosen will share the latest Developer survey on Generative AI, highlighting adoption trends and attitudes of relevance for any organization looking to incorporate the latest AI technology into their IT strategies.

“NextStep Exec is for IT executives who are ready to change their application output and transform their business with high-performance development, not the status quo,” said Rosado. “Our customer stories – from decisions to adopt low-code to creating full centers of excellence – will be on full display, showing the real opportunities that exist for companies today. IT should be the center of innovation at any organization, and the IT teams are the heroes who can drive success for a business.

  • OutSystems Developer Cloud, new capabilities for the company’s cloud-native development platform, released into general availability earlier this year;
  • Ionic Portals, a new way to create Superapps and Mobile Micro Frontends in mobile projects that brings together low-code and traditional developers to collaborate across platforms;
  • Generative AI, building on the advantages of AI in the platform over the past five years, OutSystems shows new opportunities to deliver software using generative AI.

In addition to the product updates from OutSystems, NextStep Exec will feature networking opportunities and customer sessions on some of the most pressing topics for IT leaders. Featured speakers include:

AppViewX Joins AWS ISV Accelerate Program to Enhance Cloud Security with Simplified Certificate Lifecycle Management

Businesswire | July 24, 2023

AppViewX, a leader in automated machine identity management (MIM) and application infrastructure security, today announced it has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Accelerate Program, a co-sell program for AWS Partners who provide software solutions that run or integrate with AWS. The program will help AppViewX drive new business and accelerate sales cycles by connecting the participating ISVs with the AWS Sales organization. As a MIM vendor, working with the AWS Sales organization allows AppViewX to vet and identify the best solutions available to customers. “We are proud of the solution GSK has built and continues to evolve with AppViewX CERT+. In addition to the significant benefits we have already realized we are now seamlessly migrating to the AppViewX SaaS version running on AWS with support from both organizations,” said Tomasz Bieniek, Senior Product Owner, PKI and Cryptographic Key Service, Identity & Access Management, EHS at GSK, Poland. “This flexibility in deployment models will allow us to continue to cut our overhead costs while still benefiting from the robust automated certificate lifecycle management and PKI-as-a-Service capabilities of the AppViewX SaaS platform.” With shorter transfer layer security (TLS) validity (Google is proposing to reduce TLS certificate validity to 90 days), certificate compromises, and post-quantum threats on the horizon, organizations need to be crypto-agile to ensure security and compliance. AppViewX provides complete certificate lifecycle management automation and PKI-as-a-Service that replaces manual approaches to securing machine identities, applications, workloads, containers and service accounts across cloud environments. “We’re excited to have the support of AWS as we work together to provide machine identity protection and Zero Trust security to their enterprise customers,” said Gregory Webb, CEO of AppViewX. “AppViewX delivers a complete enterprise solution that fully automates certificate lifecycle management including AWS account discovery, certificate visibility and control using pre-built workflows to provide crypto agility and enforce a strong cloud security posture. As a member of the AWS ISV Accelerate Program, we are working with AWS to onboard customers to the AppViewX platform at enterprise scale.” AWS ISV Accelerate Program members are held to the industry’s highest standards and must undergo a comprehensive evaluation to gain acceptance into the program. AppViewX participated in a thorough architectural and security review to ensure the quality and design of our solutions. Proof of customer excellence was also reviewed to validate the successes AppViewX customers have achieved across industry verticals. About AppViewX AppViewX is trusted by the world’s leading organizations to reduce risk, ensure compliance, and increase visibility through automated machine identity management and application infrastructure security and orchestration. The AppViewX platform provides complete certificate lifecycle management and PKI-as-a-Service using streamlined workflows to prevent outages, reduce security incidents and enable crypto-agility. Fortune 1000 companies, including six of the top ten global commercial banks, five of the top ten global media companies, and five of the top ten managed healthcare providers rely on AppViewX to automate NetOps, SecOps, and DevOps. AppViewX is headquartered in New York with offices in the U.K., Australia and three development centers of excellence in India. For more information, visit and follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
