Pros
Besides the cost you have, it is well worth it because it is a huge investment. It is highly recommended for medium and large companies.

GeneXus being a low code platform has allowed us to remain lean thus reducing overhead without suffering productivity losses.

We currently carry out web and mobile development with great agility, we consider that we are 300% more efficient and faster compared to development with traditional tools.

Cons
However, this is a double-edged-sword. You can fall into the trap or letting GeneXus worry about everything to the point that you can become out of touch with technology trends.

Documentation does not help to solve problems and is sometimes insufficient.

OP

Osvaldo P.

Code generated is difficult to read and some restrictions in the use of each language.

Best development CASE Tool

Reviewed 6 months ago

Impressive tool that I have been using for almost two decades When I managed GENEXUS, my life in systems development changed radically. It is not really programmed anymore, it is simply described. And it is that describing goes beyond lines and codes. Now with the recent and updated version, I can develop a STARTUP for smartphones in less than an hour and with a few clicks, generate the APPS for Mobile Windows, iOS, Android and Windows. Great smart tool. Besides the cost you have, it is well worth it because it is a huge investment. It is highly recommended for medium and large companies. In small companies, a feasibility study should be carried out.

Pros

It is an intelligent tool that in just a few clicks and knowledge about development can generate a good information system It has most of the programming platforms, development languages and environments necessary today. With a minimum of clicks we can generate for iOS, Android, Windows, Mobile and it continues to grow An excellent tool and an extraordinary investment.

Cons

Well, it doesn't really have bad points or cons. You just have the build detail because now everything runs and builds in the cloud. If at any time we do not have Internet or No Data, then the process stops. But hey, it no longer depends on the GENEXUS company. Highly recommended, anyway.

Bueno acorde al precio.

Reviewed a year ago

Muy bueno por el precio y el tipo de licencia. Nos permite generar soluciones para intranet relativamente rápido y con buenos resultados. Generar el backend es muy fácil y rápido, pero trabajr el front-end es muy tedioso. Es muy malo que en 2020 no tenga integracion con GIT y el scm lleve costo.

Pros

GeneXus fue la opción mas económica y con licencia amigable que encontramos entre mas de 10 procutos analizados. (Entre ellos Outsystems, Mendix, Appian, Kony, QuickBase, wavemaker etc Es muy fácil armar tablas y relaciones. Hacer un CRUD funcional lleva muy pocos minutos. El sistema de seguridad (GAM) ahorra mucho tiempo tambien. Se puede deployar en cualquier lado. Buen concepto de environments. Es muy facil armar webservices e interconectar con otros servicios. Generar el backend es muy simple y rápido.

Cons

El soporte es tercerizado en algun partner y deja mucho que desear. El concepto de patterns El SCM se licencia aparte y no es compatible con GIT. El IDE Se cuelga bastante por cualquier cosa. Los tiempos de compilacion son extremadamente largos. El tema por defecto es bastante pobre en cuanto a UX La "documentación" es un caos y es deficiente. El lenguage de programación es propio y no esta a la altura de otros lenguajes. Desarrollar front end es muy tedioso con los patterns y los altos tiempos de compilacion.

Herramienta ágil para el desarrollo de aplicaciones

Reviewed a year ago

Hace más de 25 años que uso GeneXus. Vi los avances en cada salto de versión y pude ser testigo que estos cambios siempre acompañaron las necesidades y los requerimientos de las aplicaciones de la época. Esto nos permitió seguir desarrollando productos cumpliendo con las necesidades del mercado sin la necesidad de construir soluciones por fuera de la herramienta.

Pros

Una vez adquirido el conocimiento de la herramienta, se pueden desarrollar aplicaciones complejas en muy poco tiempo. Cuenta con objetos que permiten la integración a otros sistemas en forma sencilla. El hecho que la herramienta realice los cambios en la base de datos de la aplicación, la posibilidad de generar dicha aplicación en diferentes lenguajes y la amplia variedad de BDs con las cuales interactúa son, sin duda, sus características más importante a destacar.

Cons

Creo que deberían extender el período de soporte de sus versiones. Migrar sistemas de gran porte requiere mucho tiempo de análisis, trabajo, testing e implementación. Es mucho el trabajo para encontrarse fuera de soporte nuevamente al poco tiempo.

Avaliação - Visão Desenvolvedor

Reviewed a year ago

Sempre tive bons resultados, alguns bugs ali e aqui, desde lá a versão 9.0, mas em geral, a ferramenta vêm ganhando recursos excelentes na parte web. Na parte móbile, não gosto da ferramenta e também não a indico. Existem ferramentas mais poderosas, como o flutter, e novamente, gratuitas. O SDForm acho terrível. Preferia algo tipo o implementando no AndroidStudio ou Flutter ( modelar via XML ou Dart )

Pros

Novos recursos que são implementados, agilidade no desenvolvimento.

Cons

Preço. O preço é absurdo, sendo que todas as tecnologias estão se tornando de alguma forma gratuita. Poderia ser cobrado um percentual sobre a venda do produto, ou ter versões gratuitas para até X faturamento. Em +10 anos de GX, já treinei muitos desenvolvedores e a principal reclamação é relativo ao próprio estudo. Usar trial não é solução, pois é muito burocrática. Vocês precisam inovar nessa relação custo x benefício, por que por onde eu passo, sempre tenho um feedback negativo a respeito da quantidade de profissionais e custo. Vejo excelentes profissionais abandonando a ferramenta e eu já estou na fila também para migrar para outra tecnologia mais viável.

Herramienta de fácil integración en plataformas de vanguardia

Reviewed a year ago

La filosofía de modelar en lugar de programar ayuda a una fácil adopción; asi como la integración con otras plataformas Google+, webservices y desarrollo de aplicaciones en el ecosistema SAP Fiori asi como el desarrollo de aplicaciones para dispositivos móviles nativas hacen que la inversión del licenciamiento y soporte valgan la pena.

Pros

La integración de muliplataformas. el omnichanel y los chatbots son excelentes.

Cons

Cambiar la filosofia de modelar en lugar de lanzar lineas de código a diestra y siniestra.
