"A Platform to allow cost control and risk reduction."

What do you like best?

Easy prototyping to raise POCs in hours and swiftly validate with the customer.

Amazing capacity to manage any code, database or other change, even if it doesn't happen inside the scope we're working on.

Unitary testing, behaviors and defects traceability are so easy, the difficult part is knowing when not to use the debug capability.

What do you dislike?

Not possible to perform Data Migration between environments.

Incapacity to create Intellectual Property (close the code of a given module) with the platform is a down side.

Multi-thread capacity not included, what prevents some high performance solution usages.

It should have a more flexible licensing model, adjusted to the geography and business case. SME should be able to use with limitations and for some specific scenarios. In some cases a simple customer facing portal will have a prohibiting cost due to needing Unlimited Users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Analyze the cost against the full range of dimensions, not just against being Low Code and fastest then other typical technologies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Originations - Ease of data collection. Easy integration with services either on REST or SOAP.

Customer or Partner Portals - Ease of data collection. Easy integration with the Core systems, either through a SOA layer or directly against external databases.

"The PLATFORM to choose if you want Digital Innovation and Transformation done right"

What do you like best?

Having managed, sponsored and promoted dozens of OutSystems projects across multiple industry sectors since 2005, what I like best in OutSystems:

• Build strong Web and Mobile POC, Prototypes and MVP in record time;

• Not only how fast we can build applications from the ground up but more important, how fast we can adapt applications to meet an increasingly dynamic and uncertain business environment;

• We benefit from the Rapid Application Development power of OutSystems while maintaining full flexibility to integrate with external systems and applications seamlessly and increment functionality through custom developed software components known as Extensions.

What do you dislike?

From a business perspective, the price structure and licensing model should change less frequently, be more clear and more flexible to accommodate different adoption scenarios. Initial investment costs and lack of predictability regarding future cost of ownership, as applications evolve, are common objections to OutSystems platform adoption.

From a technical perspective, I know that, in bigger and more complex projects, technical teams may struggle with governance issues, code merging, release building and versioning, although we recognize that OutSystems has made important improvements in that area in recent versions of the platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My first recommendation would be to try the platform. It is free, you have access to complete training materials and do not need any special guidance to build your first OutSystems application.

As a second recommendation and like many things in life, one size does not fit all. The approach you follow in the adoption of the platform will depend on the scenario at hand. Sometimes OutSystems will be great just for applications’ front-ends, leveraging the power of great user experience and anywhere, anytime access, connected to already existing solid backend systems. Other times OutSystems full stack applications may be the right path to follow to achieve modernization of legacy systems and leverage the full power of RAD. The decision of when and how to use the platform will dictate how much business value you can extract from its adoption.

As a last recommendation and as it usually happens with powerful tools like OutSystems, you can build great applications that bring high value to the business and that users love but you can also build sloppy, unmanageable and unusable applications that will be, sooner or later, thrown away. Good architecture decisions and sound governance are critical to maximize the benefits extracted from the OutSystems platform adoption, so be careful when choosing the project team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From modernizing 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. Most of all, I have seen satisfied end users that breed and embrace applications built with OutSystems, which is ultimately our goal as information technology professionals.

"The stuff that dreams are made of"

What do you like best?

The first great thing about OutSystems Agile Platform is that it make everything easy. By removing the standard-but-trickier part of all websites/apps, it allows the development team to focus on the real issues. And instead of watching pages and pages of code, there are modular blocks of operation that are quite easy to understand, but anyone can add the old-fashioned code if they like or have to.

The second best part is that OutSystems controls its product like few companies do, and offers bootcamps and a single online community so that everyone can start working by the book and reach all the pros in no time. You can do it on your own to start, or you can jump into the the professional version and see architecture recomendations, design and usability, server performance and everything else.

No need for any particular set of skills to do a full stack application. It can be a one person job, or a full team working on the product. As long as they follow the Agile methodology, the final product can't go wrong.

What do you dislike?

After working in OutSystems is hard to go back to other tools, and that includes doing extensions (C#/Java) to connect Agile Platform to external libraries.

And while debugging the native quality rules (like the use of transactions) may cause problems to developers not used to good code. It takes a while to correct bad habits.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can give it a try online and free. That will be enough to convince most of the non-believers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By working in the fast moving consumer goods, the issues are diverse. We solved problems of Human Resources, Sales, Marketing, Quality, Logistics... Most applications are for internal use, but they are business critical and the business is very flexible (and applies to several countries). We are having the best time to market ever.

"Focus on Business needs"

What do you like best?

The power key business users and product owners have to evaluate new strategies by having powerfull solutions ready very quickly instead of strugling with endless projects. The built-in UI and components are very helpfull.

What do you dislike?

One must be very carefully when engaging a big developers team. Having many developers competing when publishing their last changes to the "code" sometimes can be a painfull process. As the platform's development modus operandi relies strongly on heavy files being transfered over the internet (for cloud based projects), merging and deploying tasks can be a challenge.

That's why it's so important to have in the team someone with expertise in software development processes and software architecture.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask for a PoC with one of OS expert guys. It will surely be surprising

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've rolled out some strategic projects in just a couple of weeks, re-written legacy systems with huge client satisfaction and guided developers on very short learning curve experiences in the most diversified teams.

"Working with OutSystems platform since 2005"

What do you like best?

The ability to let us concentrate our skills where technical expertise is really needed, instead of loosing time with repeated technical tasks.

What do you dislike?

Version control over partial developed features (layout, logic, data...) and be able to decide what goes for that release without having to compromise too much (branches...).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have the ability to setup a "factory" with several applications being developed on a fast pace and always changing environment, then you'll have the return on investment more quickly than you can imagine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business benefit I keep seeing addressed on all these customers that embraced this low code platform is the ability to adapt change and let the requirements come and go with no real pain. IT starts to be aligned with business and is now challenging product owners to give them more work to tackle.

"Great Low-Code Platform that allows to develop Apps in a fast way"

What do you like best?

The best of the platform is how quickly you can get brilliant results according to business requirements and it's very easy to deploy the applications between environments.

What do you dislike?

Mobile applications, being still a novelty, there are things that need to be improved, such as the Offline and the Debugger.

The license price is very expensive and a lot of small companies can’t support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All business problems can be solved with OutSystems platform.

It's easy to do integrations with other technologies and to use plugins and APIs, and it's simple to replace business processes which are paper based and reduce the overhead costs associated.

With the platform management tools we can identify and correct bugs very fast.

"Great low code platform with lot of power"

What do you like best?

Simplicity and power that is provided out of the box. Easily tackles the issues faced in the traditional development. Don't have to spend too much time on UI or thinking about the coding best practices (like design pattern). Just have to follow the Outsystems guide lines and by default it encourages modular programming. This will be very helpful when building applications as code re use is also encouraged. Apart from that things like monitoring and logging are taken care by the platform we don't have to spend too much time on it.

What do you dislike?

Programmers still need to know Java or C# should they write extension, it would be much better if Outsystems can come up with its own programming language so we can write code in the IDE itself instead of relying on C# and Java. This will help developers to debug code and test it within the IDE instead of the integration studio.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely people should try Outsystems to realize how much work is taken care by the platform. This really allows the developers to solve business problems instead of technical problems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business would like to have the applications delivered fast with decent UI. So using Outsystems, this was easily achieved and visual programming allows the developer to do most of the QA testing too.

"Low-coding it"

What do you like best?

The intuitiveness of the IDE is very good and new developers can easily catch on. I also like the cost of change that is very low - this is important in industries where change is at the order of the day.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the licensing model and pricing structure. I believe OutSystems can be more flexible in this regard. I also dislike the version control system as it is sometimes inadequate or cumbersome for larger teams working on the same projects

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automation of mundane tasks frees up human resources that can be applied to other areas of the business where more humans are needed.

"Extremely easy and functional"

What do you like best?

Outsystems is a very easy to use platform wich enables a very fast web and mobile apps development. It allows us to develop solid work in a simple way.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to point here. I guess that the only problem with Outsystems platform is that specific things tend to be, sometimes, harder to code. But Outsystems is being updated almost every week, so i believe that in no time this problem will no longer exist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and you´ll never go back.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Outsystems provide us a simple way to manage a lot of data. Its modular organization enables a better understanding of the code developed.

"Speaking My Language!"

What do you like best?

The platform allows me to concentrate more on the functionality and features in my applications rather than how to code it. I won’t even get into debugging. I used to always generate Visio flowcharts before coding. With this platform, the flowcharts ARE the code!

What do you dislike?

There aren’t many things I dislike, but one thing that comes to mind is merging code when multiple developers are working in the same eSpace. It would be nice if it worked more like Microsoft’s TFS source control.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Avoid advanced queries, keep all JavaScript organized, avoid tweaking processes automated by the platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I primarily use OutSystems for in-house applications requested by employees and managers. 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.

"Top-6 Low-Code shootout winner"

What do you like best?

SPEED! ... of development, agile cycle times, and app run-time performance is ground breaking.

UX! ... the quality of the SilkUI is awesome!

DEBUGGER! ... is simply the best I have ever seen! I find errors in my LOGIC super fast!

What do you dislike?

Honestly, the big reason why I chose OutSystems for my firm is because I've not found anything that I truly DISLIKE. Trust me, that is hard to believe. I know, I can't believe I am saying this. For 25+ years as a technology leader, I've waiting for such a platform. It's now REAL.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Kick the tires in the FREE "Personal Environment" ... it is the perfect test.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am starting TWO new companies at the same time. The ease of re-use across the two companies has been incredible. We are building B2B and B2C apps for the employee benefits and healthcare finance markets.

I'm also building apps for internal sales, marketing, and ops teams.

"Easy adoption+quick results+good support - what's not to like!?"

What do you like best?

-Low learning curve, which leads to easy adoption for developers and "pseudo-developers" alike.

-We have found that we no longer do paper-prototypes since its easier to prototype on the Outsystems platform and let it take shape as the end product.

-Platform-approach to administration of dozens of low/medium complexity applications pays dividends

-Pretty robust integration functionality to expose functionality as APIs real easily as well as consume external data

-Outsystems perfectly complemented our journey towards 100% Agile and SCRUM adoption.

-After the initial investment in training and base setup, results come at record rate.

What do you dislike?

-Be prepared to give up some control of the infrastructure when you go with the Cloud hosted model (they do offer an on-premise model as well). This is typical of most PaaS solutions.

-Change Management has room for improvement but we hear the latest version of the platform did improve in this area a bit.

-Support has room for improvement and timeliness is not always their forte. Again, we find this to be the case with other vendors as well.

-The Forge (the marketplace for trying out functionality contributed by other users or Outsystems) has much more potential than is currently realized.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good idea to find your development patterns within your enterprise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- We are no longer reinventing the wheel. We reuse functionality that was already developed for one application in other applications. This was our main use case.

- We have found ourselves to be active practitioners of RAD concepts like Rapid prototyping and following the critical path.

- We are able to develop our own "add-ons" or "extensions" within the platform to make it do more.

"Great platform for beginners and experts"

What do you like best?

Speed of development and ease of integration with existing platforms. As someone who has spent a career in IT, but never been a "developer", I was able to create a fairly complex application that seamlessly integrates with our existing databases.

True Change is pretty amazing - you make a change in one place and it corrects it in other areas of your application.

What do you dislike?

The software usage in the pricing model is a bit difficult to understand. Forecasting the software usage/consumption of a new project is not easy to do.

The support forum is a user community. While it is a great resource, if it is your only means of finding an answer to a problem it can take too long to get an answer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sign up for a personal environment and do the online tutorials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We replaced a paper volunteer application with an online version. The time required to complete the application was reduced from days to hours. As a non-profit that needs more than 1,000 volunteers per year to staff our mission, this was a huge step forward in our recruiting process.

"Solve business problems instead of technical ones"

What do you like best?

As a old-time c# coder I love the fact I can focus on solving business problems instead of technical issues. I have no worries about dependencies and low-level stuff. Furthermore the TrueChange is awesome. I really have no trouble to refactor, move methods around and clean up stuff. Maintenance is fun as well. The new features in P10 is very welcome for the mobile department as well as the desktop environment.

What do you dislike?

As a lowcode platform it lacks certain flexibility, but those are only edge cases nowadays. Ofcourse the versioning could have some loving by check-in comments but it's all in the nitpicking categories.

As long as it don't evolve in a old-school IDE i can manage most of the dislikes.

There is no perfect tool and there never will be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Embrace the change and don't be afraid you are boxed with this tool.

It's hugely dynamic and you can still use c#/java if you really really need to.

Upgrades are a breeze and every new major release will surprise you everytime!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All sorts of business problems, from invoicing, webshops and plain websites. The speed of change and flexibility is the biggest benefit. The easy of refactoring datamodels and simple yet effective way of implementing security measures is a big plus.

Customers see how easy and fast changes are implemented and are very happy with it and are becoming more active in the development itself instead of waiting in the backroom to see what it has become.

"Fantastic low code platform"

What do you like best?

Where do I start? The ability to develop and deploy the full stack quickly and easily is second to none. In addition, the platform TrueChange tab allows you to find where all of your obvious bugs are, and won't even allow you to publish until they all are resolved, making sure that the simple mistakes won't be detrimental to your application. Recently I've been heavily developing in platform 10, and the mobile and offline capabilities of this version are tremendous.

What do you dislike?

The primary issue that I've had with Outsystems is the lack of powerful advanced data grids. The grids are okay in taking care of basic to intermediate needs, but if you need something with the power of KendoUI, you need to go elsewhere to get it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a niche product because it isn't free, but if you have enterprise-level projects for desktop and mobile and want one code base, I would highly recommend Outsystems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a very small development team, and we've been able to successfully manage all of the needs much better than we could with any other platform. Outsystems allows us not only to develop and deploy very quickly, but change orders and bug fixes are EXTREMELY easy. I've loved that aspect of the platform almost more than anything else. It has been possible for us to be able to keep our IT costs down with fewer developers, yet still deploy quality products in a timely manner.

"Great working with OutSystems"

What do you like best?

I experience OutSystems as an easy to use tool which makes it possible to realize applications together with customer representatives along the journey towards realizing a new application. Sitting together behind the monitor and build the application they want/need, making modifications on the fly and see the result right away after 1-click-publish.

Very important for me as well is the fact that I can talk about the process a customer goes through and build the main processes of the application instead of building a data model and menu to access data in that model.

What do you dislike?

I experienced some limitations when migrating large amounts of data to OutSystems. OutSystems has a lot out-of-the-box features to import data from for example Excel sheets or use data from databases outside of the OutSystems environment. When I started to import >100K records, I faced throughput time of hours. Luckily extensions in several languages (C#, Java) are available in the community or can be custom made to get rid of that issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a serious look at it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Just started using OutSystems (1/2 year), so few successes booked until now: generally replacing manual data processing. Also performing several time consuming validations (due to manual data retrieval from different systems) and presenting information from different systems in one application.

"Outsystems review"

What do you like best?

The Outsystems platform is the best way to reduce the time to market in all types of it projects, reduce direct and indirect costs and the overall number of elements of the development team is smaller then comparing with other it development platforms..

What do you dislike?

The offline capability of the platform is not yet the best way to mobile programming, but is growing in that direction. The silkui is other part that in my opinion needs more development, and growing to became more usability in larger projects sutch as insurance it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Is a great product anf i enjoy workimg with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All inquiry and expertise bussness is being managed in outsystems platform based applications, and all the users are very happy with it. The time to market achived with the platform is another benefict to all the parts envolved in the development process. The number of developers is other benefict of outsystems platform.

"Outsystems platform"

What do you like best?

Outsytems makes it very easy to create new applications.

It is an easy to learn development tool. It provides a much faster development tool compared to traditional programming languages,

It offers multiple tools to start an application from scratch

It also provides tools to maintain your development environments.

What do you dislike?

Publication times. Compared to other technologies, such as traditional programming environments like C# or Java, using Outsystems will take you a little longer to deploy and publish new versions of your applications.

Licensing can be very expensive, making it only accessible to large corporations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working with Outsystems since 2010. I have used it mainly to work on Insurance business applications.

The most important benefit I realized is how fast we can deliver new applications or change them according to the new business requirements.

"Outsystems the rapid application low-code platform"

What do you like best?

The best of OutSystems (OS for short) is the speed at which you are able to set up your first professional looking app without sacrificing any of the complexity. I found that OS allows any developer to develop at his or hers level, but can develop nonetheless.

What do you dislike?

It is hard to say which really can be dislikes when the OS platform is really good as it is. However I would say that the high licensing fee (relatively) is a dislike when you want to create something for a small community, although the personal environment is able to tackle this problem somewhat.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nothing

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By using the OS platform we are able to add a structure to an usually already existing different framework such that overhead is reduced.

"I'm enjoying technology outsystems"

What do you like best?

One of the aspects that I liked in outsystems is that it allows you to implement things in a short time. And it also allows me to be aware of certain basic principles of an application screen and its input and output components. And on which part of the screen these components should be placed.

What do you dislike?

In outsystems technology, there is a limitation when trying to implement certain complex functionalities when there are no widgets or mechanisms to accomplish this functionality. Or even that sometimes it takes a long time to discover them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The outsystems platform is well-prepared to structure an application following a three tier architecture. The Core, Logic and Interface. This is a benefit that the platform provides.

OutSystems platform allows developers to meet business expectations in no time! Code has never been so easy to be visualized. The ramp-up for new developers is easy and developers are supported by a community that builds and share components to be used like a charm!

What do you dislike?

"Best Low Code platform"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity that Outsystems provides in order to create beautiful mobile apps and also Web Apps. I takes very few hours of study in order to be able to perform the hardest tasks in the platform.

What do you dislike?

The time that takes to put a solution from the Development Environment into the Production Environment. Service Center is also a bit old and doesn't look and feel like the remaining services of Outsystems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like I said, it's easy to use Outsystems as a platform to produce mobile and web apps since it doesn't require many hours of study to get along with the platform. It solves problems related with the need to have many developers for each and one of the mobile platforms. Outsystems allows the user to produce apps for Android and iOS in one single platform of development.

"Simple but does the job"

What do you like best?

What I like the most is how rapidly you can deliver products to the customer, especially if you have to make some modifications or changes to the program. Our customers have been really impressed with how fast we deliver and I think that is one of the things that the customer feels the most.

Working with the Outsystems platform is also great. It is easy to use, especially since everything is so visual, and that makes it easy for the programmer to read through the project and for others to see what is going on.

The Outsystems community is also very good, if i post a question or a problem on the forum i usually I get a response within days, I have also been using the Forge a lot, getting ideas and supportapps for my projects.

What do you dislike?

Because some parts, for example operations and functions, are so well encapsulated it is sometimes hard to do certain things the way you knew before. But usually I just have to look the problem up on the forum and there I find the answer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Outsystems offers a great variety of courses to take and webinars to attend to and I would recommend to anyone, who is interested in the platform, to take the advantage of that.

It can also be good to take a look at the apps that have been published to the Forge page to see how things have been done and get ideas.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working several different projects. On one project the app is mainly used out in the field where users are gathering information using mobile devices. That project was fairly simple, the project was assigned on Wednesday and I delivered the app 95% ready 2 days later.

What I see as a benefit for the customer is that you can deliver the product quickly and at development time you can show the customer the product on screen, meaning that you are not showing the customer just a code but they are getting something to look at that they understand and can relate to.

"Outsystems - Easy to deploy, strong possibilities"

What do you like best?

Outstystems Is a low code platform that makes it easy to transform business processes in technolgy. It applies the last trend in technology in terms of user interface.

It integrates without effort external systems, databases, business cases and user interface.

With mobile capabilities, it is easy to develop IOS and ANDROID applications to be accessible offline

What do you dislike?

Sometimes we are a bit tied up to the way Outsystems does things. Since it does a lot of automatic stuff some you would like to make it other way. It should be easier to develop hand made code sometimes

Recommendations to others considering the product

Star making the right architecture right from the begin

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Only work on Windows Microsoft it is a limitation for apple lovers and the need to publish in the cloud to test client-side code it is a handicap for UI developers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My team work with client-side code, we try to solve the gap of UI customization when work with low code. The Outsystems platform has a dependencies architecture feature that enable us to create great reusable UI patterns.

For us, scale design is the biggest challenge and the platform it´s great for that.

"Low-Code Development"

What do you like best?

You can develop something functional in a very short period of time with very little code.

There is a lot of information available with a lot of quality.

What do you dislike?

What I least like is the need to do many Querys.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With little code you can get something to work in a fast way

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems solved are several, depending on the project in which I'm inserted, the biggest advantages of the platform are the procedures all well documented.

"Low-code development is the awnser"

What do you like best?

- Building once and deploy everywhere

- Lower risk and higher ROI

- Improved agility

- Elimination of the IT skills gap

- Scalable governance of multiple Apps

- Full lifecycle maintenance

- Better customer experience

What do you dislike?

Price. As an agile software development firm representative, we find some projects are lost due to the fact that the prospects cannot understand the benefits of such technology - ideally this should be suitable for all our projects, independent of the customer size.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Considering OutSystems as visionary, others should follow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simplifying the development process for coders, by automating manual processes, low-code development makes it easier to create flexible apps to get specific tasks done.

"Outsystems accelerates time to market and time to ROI"

What do you like best?

The platform is incredibly flexible and meets the needs of customers regardless of how complex their requirements are. Developers can more quickly meet the demands of their jobs while at the same time doing so in a manner that promotes reusability and understandability.

There is a wealth of knowledge within Outsystems and in their community of developers. This can prove invaluable when you need additional information on a topic. Also, there is a large set of pre-built applications from the Outsystems Forge that can be used for reference or to kickstart an application.

What do you dislike?

The platform is easy to get started with but takes more time than I originally thought to get proficient with especially with some of the more complicated patterns.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are having issues with meeting business demands in terms of quantity of deliverables, timing of those deliverables, quality of those deliverables, and attempting to contain software development costs, it would be well worth your time to investigate whether this platform would be right for you. I think that you'll be pleasantly surprised.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Enterprise level application development for products to sell to external customers.

The ability to rapidly prototype ideas and modify those prototypes on they fly.

The ability to produce so much more with fewer developers.

"Wonderful working with Outsystems"

What do you like best?

There are many things I like about Outsystems such as the built in user manager, built in feedback manager, the growing community (both the forum and the forge) and also their excellent customer service. But I would have to say that the thing I like the most is the speed at which you can deliver your product to the customer. Me and my colleague were able to deliver a fully functional application to our client in only 2 days!

What do you dislike?

There are very few things that I dislike about OS. My biggest issue is probably that you have to do things "the Outsystems way" (which I might add is not particularly a bad thing). Outsystems gives you tremendous freedom and ability to get into almost every detail about your application but there have been times that I would have liked to have done things a certain way but opted instead to do it "the Outsystems way", which again, isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go through the beginners courses they offer, they are really helpful and help get you going on your journey!

My second advice is (when you are finished with the beginners courses) try stuff out in your personal environment. Try consuming a web service, go to the forge and look around, download application and see how they are developed and try to imitate them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of my work has been for one of the largest fiber optic cable suppliers in Iceland. The biggest thing we have been able to do is revolutionize the way the people out in the field work. Before orders were carried out by filling out a form on paper which later had to be entered into a computer when workers got back to their station. Now, all of their field workers are equipped with Android tablets where they receive and carryout their orders. The process of setting up the fiber optics cable is also included in the application along with the requirements of taking photos of the setup process and customer signing for the work on the tablet. The application then goes on to create a PDF for the customer with all the information the worker entered in along with the photos and signatures.

This has reduced the number of complaints, they have reduced the amount of paperwork dramatically and have been able to increase productivity.

"High-productivity application platform"

What do you like best?

Definitely Outsystems platform keeps its promises:

"The OutSystems Agile Platform gives IT the power to build and change custom enterprise applications with the speed, agility and robustness the business demands."

Where Outsystems makes the difference is even beyond application development, because supports the entire application lifecycle, making it easy for teams to deploy, manage and operate up to hundreds of different apps.

Pros:

- Development speed with Outsystems is outstanding.

- Outsystems offers a Public Cloud PaaS that's perfect to evaluate the platform.

- Monitoring and Management: Configuration management of running applications and identity management are also handled out-of-the box by OutSystems Platform. All apps are automatically monitored

What do you dislike?

- Enterprise licensing can get expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Best RAD aplication in the world, Outsystems"

What do you like best?

There is a lot of things i like in que OutSystems.

It's very fact to build the application, we can build a simple application in minutes.

The out-of-the-box Analytics to monitor the performance, the quality of the

supportdesk and the active community (you have a forum where you can ask something When You

have some questions and the Forge, que is a webpage with a lot of components).

What do you dislike?

The main thing is the license price. A large company can bear the costs, but smaller companies can be more complicated if we take into account with Microsoft / Oracle Licenses.

If it had lower costs, there might be more help on the forum and more help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

First of all, view the tutorials, then sign up for a free personal environment and try OutSystems

Will be love at first sight

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working several different projects. Integrations with SAP, Databeses (Oracle and MSSQL), integrations with a lot of services.

"The best RAD and Agile tool on the market"

What do you like best?

It's easy to get started, and easy to get more experienced in. As an experienced developer, it doesn't hold you back though, you can do almost everything you could also do by handcrafting C# or JavaScript. It also allows you extending the Platform by writing C# or Java and JavaScript.

Most of the nasty details of AJAX and REST are safely hidden from view, giving you a very versatile but easy to master development tool for day to day use. It is by far the most productive tool I've worked with, and I've worked with some. I also love that the Platform outputs C# or Java and uses MSSQL and Oracle instead of using proprietary stuff, so it scales easily by using conventional server configurations.

OutSystems also offers free (yes FREE!) access to a personal development environment in the cloud to learn how to use the platform and develop your own apps. They have an active forum where users can meet and ask questions, and a very good support team.

Last but not least, the Platform continues to evolve. OutSystems is quick to embrace new technologies, whether it is AJAX, REST or responsive design, and enhances and improves both the capabilities of its Platform and their development tools by releasing new versions once or twice a year. And what's more: they listen to their users! Many feature requests that started out as ideas in the user community have been implemented to make the Platform even better.

What do you dislike?

If anything, it's the steep licence costs. A medium to large business would not find it insurmountable, but small business can likely forget to use the OutSystems Platform, especially since a licence for either Windows, IIS and MSSQL or Oracle is also needed. I've seen many IT professionals getting excited by the Platform and what it has to offer, but being downright disappointed when they heard the licensing fees.

Recommendations to others considering the product

View the tutorials, sign up for a free personal environment in the cloud, and experience the easy of app development with the OutSystems Platform!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of them. My company uses the Platform for all of its business needs, safe for finances and the company web site. So that means sales, sourcing, CRM, billing and (e-)invoicing, intrabranch communications, and our customer portal. Benefits realized are the quick time to market (we have a 2-week delivery cycle), and the speed with which new, complex projects are targeted and delivered.

"Love developing with OutSystems"

What do you like best?

It is fast to develop in OutSystems. Using it makes developers better because it ensures that they follow best practices around security, data access, etc. Most of the common UI patterns are built-into the platform, which makes it a breeze to get day-to-day work done. OutSystems as a company continues to build on the foundation and improve it. The people are OutSystems are great *people* in terms of how they treat you, their motivation to do the right thing, etc. I have never felt like they were holding me hostage to a contract saying "we refuse to do this".

What do you dislike?

A few UI concepts are hard to implement. You feel like "oh, we don't need a DBA now!" and then you realize that you still do, especially for troubleshooting certain performance problems. It can be difficult to convince some developers to approach it with an open mind.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be open minded, take the time to THOROUGHLY go through the video tutorials! They are key to getting the learning on the product. Get active on the forums, ask questions there and you will see that there is plenty of help available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Get to market quickly, involve the business team (PMs, BAs, stakeholders, etc.) more in the development process, heavy creation of workflow/processes.

"Truely an amazing feat in Systems Development."

What do you like best?

The way it does self-healing and change analysis is really fantastic. This is simply an enabler especially to people who are new in programming. No more problems on re-allocating resources as it is very easy to learn and reverse-engineer existing apps. Includes pre-built libraries/plug-ins and great looking templates addressing the usual UI/UX concerns. Has even an existing, growing and very active community. Most importantlly, it supports Multi-Tenancy!

What do you dislike?

1. Needs clear breakdown of consumed units or objects (licensing coverage) per application which is very important in sizing up projects.

2. User instance ("Named Users") may have limits depending on the acquired license.

3. Does not support SVN-like version control yet. Maybe it's by design. But it's really a big plus to have.

4. Customizing UI can be very tough. But I'm pretty sure there's something there that will work one way or another.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend this Platform to anyone who wanted to have a quick way of building Entrerprise-grade applications with less time and resources, or basically just to jump-start aspiring developers. If you're practising Agile Development, then this is the right one for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"The best Reviewer"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use, allows a complete novice to enter the IT world and make great apps in a very fast and rather simply way.

What do you dislike?

Sometime it can be very tricky to understand what is the errors that the system signals, specially in the service center monitoring screen. Also it can be difficult to use JavaScript since the the field of input looks just like a string where we don't have any feedback for the code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

See the films of who fast and easy it is to do an app.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am currently improving and doing maintenance for an already in use app, two year old, that process timesheets for company and client employees, and their salary processing also. The app is made in avery tricky and confused way, the lack of proper documentation process or a very simple and direct way to see the relation of all the eSpaces in use.

"OutSystems - a fast and addictive development experience."

What do you like best?

OutSystems positions itself as a no- or low- code rapid application development product, and it certainly delivers! Once you get used to the way in which the product shapes development, it becomes very quick to put a living breathing prototype in front of stakeholders, improving your development process by putting the user into the heart of the conversation.

What do you dislike?

As a cloud solution, a good internet connection is imperative, although offline mobile apps using Android and IOS are possible.

The usual rules for Rapid Application Development apply - make sure that you have a clear vision of what you want first. But as a tool to help realise that vision, it is very effective.

The new capacity to online edit your mobile app and show the change to the end-user, doing with him the little tweaks he finds emotionally invaluable.

"Outsystems and Futuresystems"

What do you like best?

The platform is, quite frankly, amazing at what it is says it does. It is a strong and capable tool for enabling a very intuitive development environment, over which both small and sharp, as well as large and still efficient applications can be designed. In my honest opinion, the strongest selling point of Outsystems is that it removes from developers the need to do a lot of background coding, putting together a strong suit of features focused on nurturing the creative spirit of the development process

What do you dislike?

The integration studio and its relationship with the development service studio is not as easily understood for a still novice user, as is my case.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly HR and contact center related business applications. The fast deployment of new outsystems application versions enables fast response to contact centers requirements.

What do you dislike?

I think that the Javascript integration and usage could be made a little bit more clear and intuitive, because sometimes, there are scenarios where its usage is very useful and it has been a bit difficult using it for me.

"Outsystems has met all the value promises made in the sales process"

What do you like best?

The speed and quality of the applications that our developers are able to produce in response to our business demands. In 18 months we have modernized our production suite of applications and enabled the Business to enter the "Cloud Age". We have leapfrogged our competitors.

In addition getting new developers onto to the platform, trained and productive takes approximately 3 weeks thanks to the online tutorials. The fact that the platform supports "native code" generation and scales using the standard MS Technology stack makes the services developed easy to manage with existing investments in resources. Its hybrid cloud capabilities has created new business opportunities.

What do you dislike?

Not much from a technical point of view. It would be nice if Outsystems was a bit more aggressive in their Marketing and sales.

Recommendations to others considering the product

1) Ensure your development team buy into a whole new way of developing

2) Prepare the business owners to be much more interactive with the development process

3) Re-think your project methodologies to do RAD( D= delivery)

4) Review the type of developer you employ. Able to do business analysis as well as develop.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem we faced was that out technology was old and past it's sell by date. The result is that we could not match the agility that our Clients expected of us. We were creating new opportunities in the market but could not take advantage of them due to our aging application suite. We therefore need to find a way to rewrite our core applications in the shortest possible time and with the least amount of resources possible. In a way we were looking for a "silver bullet" . Although Outsystems is not a "silver bullet" it came the closest to being one.!

"Fast development"

What do you like best?

Fast development and delivery of solutions.

My favorite functionality is the debug which allows to very easily find where are the "problems".

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to point out to Outsystems.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working in different business areas(insurance, financial, education, transports, health,...) and in most part of the applications used I didn't participate from the beginning but it was easy for me to start developing by easily understanding what has been done by other people.

"The best development tool for webdevelopment"

What do you like best?

I have been using OutSystems for more than 10 years, and it's really easy to use and learn. And it's also easy to teach someone even without that much technology knowledge.

What do you dislike?

The prize of the platform it is a little bit expensive for small and medium companies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask for a demo or test their trial. Check the e-learning materials

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The time to market is completely killed when using this platform. We can deliver applications really fast.

"Amazing"

What do you like best?

Being a special snowflake in software engineering by not being so fond of coding lines of code, Outsystems is a dream come true. I can focus on functionality and delivering results rather than spending hours searching for how I sholuld do this and that.

What do you dislike?

Since I've only started to work with Outsystems 8 months ago, there isn't much I could dislike, For now, at platform 9 is the time a publish takes to get to the Done status and refreshing all references through a bunch of e-spaces.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am migrating aspx.net code to Outsystems and I've noticed how quickly and neatly one can make a simple change and put it online for testing/production, etc.

"Complete Life-Cycle management and High Speed developing"

What do you like best?

The speed with which you can design, build, determine impact, integrate with other systems and deploy.

Thanks to these aspects Outsystems stands out and enables developers to be able to focus more and more on what's important; the User Experience.

What do you dislike?

Maybe the fact that it is not open source and the step up is fairly high in price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look no further, just get started

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Name it; mobile applications, search engines, integrations with subsystems etc.

"Awesome RAD tool"

What do you like best?

- Awesome low code platform.

- Simplicity and power that is provided out of the box.

- Best for internet based applications specially the logging in the service center helps a lot.

What do you dislike?

Even though it a low code, developer needs to have some programming knowledge. Programmers still need to know Java or C# to write extensions

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Create super fast responsive UI applications.

- Turn around time is quick

The customer support and the training that's behind the OutSystems Platform. I also love their Next Steps event which I feel that they go all out letting us know what's next and where the OutSystems organization stands.

What do you dislike?

I am really satisfied with the OutSystems platform as well as the new 10 version which is more that my capability so I am excited!

"Revolutionary"

What do you like best?

My experience with Outsystems has been a great discovery, I was never really into programming or coding, I hated the idea of having to look at pages and pages of code and when I came across Outsystems, I found a tool I identified with and a career oportunity.

Strong points:

- Quick deployment

- Instant visual feedback

- Ease of use

-Debug is by far AWESOME

What do you dislike?

I believe that I haven't come across enough complex project experiences to have a complete formulated opinion on the downsides of the platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Keeping to schedule and being able to deliver before deadlines resulting in extra time for fine tuning.

"Outsystems is my tool of preference for day-to-day development and support for Web or Mobile apps"

What do you like best?

The easyness to develop a fully operational application in a short period of time

What do you dislike?

In large environments, with hundreds of applications, the architecture must be very well designed for the whole environment to be suitable for changes and updates for a single or severall applications

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast adoptability by the programmers (even those that were developing in more "orthodox" platforms).

Time to market of the applications is much shorter

"Develop enterprise ready applications at rapid pace"

What do you like best?

The time to market the application is minimal.

What do you dislike?

Debugging applications is difficult at times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are large enterprise scale and consumer of IT. Recently we took over an IT transformation program to discount IBM Lotus Notes from the application development landscape and were on lookout for a platform that provides similar application development capabilities like Lotus Notes but at the same time help us make this change rapidly and also help us modernize our IT applications.

OutSystems made perfect sense !

"Number #1 Low Code Platform out there!"

The platform itself is very easy to use. The learning curve is very low and even starting developers could create great looking applications within a week.

There testing possibilities within the platform itself are limited.

"The best low-code platform"

What do you like best?

our customers experience OutSystems as a pleasant low-code platform with which they can quickly and flexibly deploy their digital transformation. Working together with the multidisciplinary teams in which business and IT find each other is a very nice elaboration.

What do you dislike?

I personally experience no disadvantages from outSystems. it is unfortunate that the entry-level model for the licenses has gone up, so that governments are quickly on the European tender border and small companies actually can not use OutSystems because it is too expensive

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accelerate digital transformation initiatives

You can deliver enterprise-grade multi-channel applications much faster than traditional application development

What do you like best?

Less time on the mundane tasks, more time adding real business value.

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go ahead and shop around - we did, but no other platform today provides as full coverage of the SDLC as OutSystems..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Empowering employees with mobile applications. The time to market for mobile apps has been second to none. It is fast, iterative and more engaging and this results in more successful mobile application.

"An excellent platform"

What do you like best?

Think of purchasing OutSystems' as buying a high powered Internet Systems team "in a box". OutSystems has done all the work required for website framework for application developers; build, compilation, deployment, database, database binding, monitoring, user administration, etc.

What I like the best is the platform enables a developer to focus on the application's data model, screens, and workflows and less on the underlying technology [although it's important]. For example, basing an application on OutSystems' SilkUI allows a developer to easily create beautiful response websites.

The True Change technology is great because it ensures an application is not uploaded to the internet server unless data is properly bound. The built in database integration allows a developer to quickly create a data model to build their application on.

Lastly, the built in deployment process makes application life cycle management easy as a click of a button. Deployment includes the application [including web services] and database.

What do you dislike?

Well, all companies have to make money, but the software units model can limit the number of applications developed on the platform. It's not easy to guesstimate the amount needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problems:

Develop in house applications.

Benefits:

Developers like the system because they can focus on solving the application

Team velocity has doubled

Users love the application look, feel, and responsiveness.

System is stable
