OutSystems Joins Google, Adobe and Slack on G2 Crowd’s 2019 Best Software Companies List

LONDON — 18th January, 2019 — OutSystems, provider of the number one platform for low-code rapid application development, was named a winner in G2 Crowd’s annual Best Software Awards. OutSystems ranked number four in the “Fastest Growing Products 2019” category. Winners were determined by analysing over 270,000 reviews collected in 2018.

“User feedback drove this award, which makes it extra special,” said Paulo Rosado, CEO and founder of OutSystems. “The overwhelmingly positive reviews show just how much value our technology is providing to our customers — helping businesses create enterprise-grade applications quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively. To be the only pure-play low-code company on the same list with the software industry’s heaviest hitters shows the impact OutSystems is having on the application development market.”

“This is no subjective list by a few people giving their opinions,” CEO Godard Abel explains. “With the highest traffic and engagement, largest selection of products and services, and highest quality data, G2 Crowd is able to harness more than 4 million data points to determine which products and companies are doing the best job of helping businesses reach their potential.”

G2 Crowd’s Best Software Awards provide the definitive ranking of the best software companies and products worldwide. Tech companies on the list are selected with data provided by its software users, and, as a result, have proven their commitment to customers and providing technology that delivers. G2 Crowd compiled the list using data collected from over 270,000 authentic customer reviews written between 1st January and 31st December 2018. Reviews spanned across nearly 60,000 software products, with every single review vetted by an individual person, not a machine, to ensure legitimacy.

Here’s a sampling of some terrific reviews that OutSystems customers submitted to G2 Crowd in 2018.

  • “OutSystems is the present and future of development.”
  • “The primary benefit is super-fast turnaround. It usually takes longer for users to describe to me the functionality they need than it does for me to generate a functioning prototype for them to test out.”
  • “From modernising legacy systems to streamlining inefficient paper-based processes and engaging customers, suppliers and partners, we have solved a great variety of business problems and delivered real value to our customers, with great ROI in just a few months.”

Criteria: Winners were determined based on reviews left at G2Crowd.com between 1st January and 31st December 2018. All scores are calculated using G2’s algorithms, including for Satisfaction and Market Presence, explained in detail here https://www.g2crowd.com/static/g2_grid_scores.

Going Paperless – Digitize Paper Forms Using 123FormBuilder’s New Feature!

January 17th, 2019 – Organizational paper form usage is being challenged even more by 123FormBuilder through Scan to Form, an innovative solution that digitizes PDF’s or images of physical forms into editable versions.

Traditional paper form usage is still a global challenge, as companies use thousands of paper sheets during a year. Scan to Form aims to optimize company work processes by bringing that offline content in the digital world.

Digital processes have multiple advantages over traditional ones, such as faster and more reliable communication between departments, sync data with other platforms and an extra security layer. Talking about money, Scan to Form will significantly reduce office supply expenses related to paper.

Having AI technology integrated, users can take a picture of a paper-based form, upload it inside 123FormBuilder and will have it transformed directly into a fillable web form! Every field and any text will be recognized and transformed into a digital version of the content.

The new feature Scan to Form works with JPEG images, as well as PDF documents, and even with form drafts sketched with pen and paper. Once the form has been transferred online, it will be treated just like any other 123FormBuilder form. With a whole settings suite available, the form can then be transformed into work flows by adding email notifications, centralized data gathering and more! No need to worry about logistic and security of fragile paper sheets.

Scan to Form can already be used by all 123FormBuilder users for free until further notice. When choosing to create a new form, users are asked if they want to start from scratch or a scanned document instead. If people don’t have an account, they can create one for free and use Scan to Form after just a few clicks.


About 123FormBuilder
123FormBuilder is a friendly and intuitive form building platform that helps users collect data, create workflows and generate results. From data collection forms to complex digital workflows, the form suite covers all user touch points, delivering valuable data to existing applications.

Aerohive® Announces Microservices-based Cloud Management for its A3 Secure Access Management Solution

Microservices-based Cloud-Management delivers unparalleled flexibility, scalability and resilience to A3 Secure Access Management for Corporate, BYOD, Guest, and IoT client device onboarding, authentication, and network access control (NAC)

Milpitas, Calif. – January 16, 2019 – Aerohive Networks™ (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud-Management leader, today announced the availability of cloud management for its A3 Secure Access Management solution. A3 brings a comprehensive, yet simplified approach to Corporate, BYOD, Guest, and IoT client device onboarding, authentication, and network access control (NAC).

First launched in May 2018 as an on-premises solution, Aerohive now introduces a new deployment option for A3 with cloud-based monitoring and, expected in Q2, configuration for all customer sites, while localized tasks like device onboarding and access-control enforcement will be executed by on-site enforcement nodes. Like A3 itself, its cloud management is vendor-agnostic and fully supports Aerohive and non-Aerohive networks alike. In addition, the latest release of A3 includes significant simplification of key installation and operational tasks, such as a complete A3 platform cluster that can be installed in 6 clicks, as opposed to traditional solutions that require tedious, lengthy CLI-based configuration procedures for the same task. With the A3 cloud-management option, Aerohive continues to execute on its roadmap to simplify the Secure Access Management space.

“Aerohive’s entrance into the market was a direct result of the need to streamline the user experience and simplify day-to-day operations for IT,” said Alan Cuellar Amrod, senior vice president and general manager of Products, Aerohive Networks. “Now, the cloud-management option brings customers a whole new level of deployment simplicity, flexibility, and scalability at lower cost than competitive offerings.”

A3 is enabled by Aerohive’s microservices based cloud-management architecture with native machine learning and artificial intelligence and also leverages Kubernetes containerization to ensure high performance, continuous availability for local, regionally dispersed, and highly distributed enterprise A3 deployments.

Pricing and Availability
A3 cloud management is available to A3 customers now, at no additional charge.

A3 itself is competitively priced, as follows:

  • A base fee of $9,999 with an optional, add-on fee for high-availability/high performance clustering ($9,999 for 2 additional nodes).
  • A tiered subscription fee, including support, with 1-year, 3-year and 5-year licensing terms. Subscription pricing starts at $7,000 for a 1-year license, with up to 1,000 concurrently active endpoints.

Redgate Software’s new data privacy approach endorsed with major awards

Cambridge UK, Tuesday 15 January 2019 – As the leading Microsoft SQL Server tools vendor, Redgate Software constantly updates and develops its software further to keep pace with changes in technology and market conditions. Two years ago, it embarked on an initiative to help customers comply with increasingly stringent data privacy regulations, and its efforts in developing its new SQL Provision solution have been recognized with two major awards.

SQL Provision received a gold in the Security & Copy Protection category at the 2019 Visual Studio Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards, and Redgate was also revealed as the Best Performing Company in Security & Infrastructure Software in the recent Megabuyte50 Awards.

Launched in January 2018, SQL Provision offers companies a new way to provision copies of production databases for use in development and testing. Many developers like to work with such copies to test their changes against and ensure they are not breaking changes. Those copies, however, often contain personal data which legislation like the GDPR and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard require to be safeguarded.

SQL Provision resolves the problem by masking sensitive data with data that is truly representative of the original and retains its referential integrity and distribution characteristics. It then uses the tried and tested virtualization technologies built into the Windows operating system to create copies, or clones, of the masked database in seconds. The clones are only around 40MB in size for a 1TB database, yet work just like normal databases and can be connected to and edited using any program.

Importantly, the masked clones can be provisioned repeatably, reliably and quickly, and SQL Provision also provides an audit trail to demonstrate compliance with data privacy legislation. Hence the popularity of the solution with readers of Visual Studio Magazine, and recognition of Redgate’s contribution to security software by independent research provider, Megabuyte.

As Simon Galbraith, Redgate CEO, comments: “The really good news for me is that the votes of Visual Studio Magazine readers for SQL Provision were backed by an independent and objective view of Redgate as a company which is actively developing new solutions to help customers develop databases faster, yet also keep the data within those databases safe. New data protection legislation is making compliant database DevOps an important approach for many companies, and as a leading software vendor, we think it’s our responsibility to research and develop solutions that can help.”

Alongside the gold award for SQL Provision, Redgate also won some other notable Visual Studio Magazine awards. SQL Toolbelt received a gold for the fourth year running in the Databases and Data Development and Modeling category, SQL Prompt won a gold for the second year running in the Productivity Tools category, and Redgate’s ANTS Performance Profiler won a silver in the Performance, Profiling and Debugging Tools category for the fourth time.

Redgate continues to develop SQL Provision to make it more valuable to users, and the product team is currently researching areas like masking templates which can be applied ‘off-the-shelf’, and providing alerts when databases are updated and new sensitive data needs to be masked.
