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.

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

It’s also the number-one method used to execute cyberattacks, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization. In fact, 91 percent of all cyberattacks start with an email. And your organization can’t function for long without email. How many hours of email downtime can your organization comfortably live with? If email isn’t accessible due to an adverse incident like malicious intent, human error or technical failure, your organization would likely suffer.
The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.

Change is inevitable. Any successful business manager knows their organization must continually evolve to stay relevant and competitive. Whether it’s the packaged goods company that has reached the limits of its market, or the financial giant integrating a new software platform, or the global corporation building teams, adaptability is imperative. Having resilient employees that are open to change and better equipped to cope with stress is key.
But it may surprise you to learn who among your employees will weather the storm and who won’t. The Chief Technology Officer? Or the lead on the innovation project? Your top analyst?
