OutSystems has announced the opening of its new Malaysia office, which will service its customers in Malaysia.
In a statement, the high-performance low-code development company said the office opening is part of the company’s efforts to expand its footprint across the Asia Pacific region, following its research and development center launch in Bangalore, India last October.
As a gateway to support the accelerated business development in the region, OutSystems said the Malaysian office will provide on-the-ground support for both existing and new customers across sectors such as manufacturing, healthcare, banking financial services industry (BFSI), automomtive, retail and IT

OutSystems said local enterprises can quickly re-platform or upgrade legacy systems, or develop new web or mobile applications with the functionality today’s digital society demands.
OutSystems also said it will work closely with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) and the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) to work on developing sustainable investment ecosystems in the country.
MIDA CEO Arham Abdul Rahman said the agency welcomes OutSystems’ entry into Malaysia.
“In fact, this is in line with the government’s aspiration to attract US$15.8 billion (RM70 billion) worth of investments by 2025,” he said.
Arham said MIDA is proud to partner with yet another key stakeholder to realise the digitalisation and innovation aspirations as outlined in the Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDigital) and welcomes more of such investments to break new frontiers by leveraging Malaysia’s advantages.
“The end goal is to reinvigorate the country’s investment landscape, generate quality and high-skilled employment opportunities for locals, and strengthen the country’s competitiveness,” he added.
Mark Weaser (pic), Asia Pacific vice-president at OutSystems, said, “We look forward to continuing fueling digital transformation through high-performance low-code by empowering companies to develop serious applications that make an impact in the world as well as fostering a new generation of tech talent.”
Mahadhir Aziz, CEO of MDEC said, “We welcome the arrival of OutSystems in Malaysia, whose vision and mission will no doubt support MDEC’s ongoing efforts in driving business digitalisation and the digital transformation of the country.
“OutSystems’ new office here is a testament to the continued confidence of investors towards Malaysia’s robust digital ecosystem.”
