It includes modules for order, delivery, production planning, invoice, stock control, purchase, shop management and controlling, product calculation, statistics, EDI handling and interfaces over web services.

Pros

It allows you to design, develop, maintain and extend your business application much easier and faster, in a higher quality and more flexibility, from the scratch up to complex applications.

Cons

All we wanted to realize, we could do, so I can say there is nothing we dislike.

All in all a good product

2020-12-10

We landed on GeneXus looking for a CASE for the development of mobile applications and it allowed us, in a short time, to create some applications for Android and IOS with good results.

Pros

In our case it integrates perfectly with our management software with different databases (postgres, mysql, etc.), using apache tomcat and java

Cons

We would need more support for java and apache tomcat and linux based solutions

A development team in a terminal

In some complex situations automatic code generation becomes cumbersome to control. We develop complex and mission-critical systems with a high degree of customer satisfaction.

Excellent Rapid-Development Tool

2020-12-09

Switching from coding in native languages, GeneXus has been a tremendous benefit to my workflow!

Pros

Genexus makes managing my database tables, front end programs, back end programs, and everything in between easier than ever!!

There is a bit of a learning curve, and some objects have documentation that is not very easy to understand.

¿Excelente producto de software?

2020-09-02

Hemos desarrollado aplicaciones que se conectan a web service (SOAP) o por API REST sin inconvenientes, con diferentes bases de datos (SQL Server, MySQL o Azure SQL) y lenguajes diferentes (.Net, Java o RPG), incluso en plataforma como servicio (App service o storage account).

Pros

Nos garantiza la evolución hacia el futuro con la evolución de los lenguajes de programación y framework. Es un producto fácil de usar ya que con pocos pasos podemos tener un software totalmente funcional y listo para mostrar. Se integra fácilmente con muchas tecnología de punto y actuales para poder expandir las funcionalidades de cualquier producto. Tiene mucha información en Internet disponible para todos para empezar rápidamente a capacitarnos.

Cons

Podrían tener un mejor control de las extensiones que son muy útiles pero un poco difícil de evolucionar entre versiones.

GeneXus: Inference Engine, Generators, Extensibility and more

2020-12-09

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.

Pros

Another of the capabilities incorporated in the latest versions and that we highlight the most, or like the most, is the extensibility of Genexus, allowing us to create extensions for the GeneXus development IDE, visual controls, modules, GeneXus code generators from development patterns, as the main extension mechanisms.

Cons

Genexus is a great tool that should be studied from high school with great support and a great community, however, today it is difficult to find programmers.

A tool to develop quickly without having to know all the technologies web and mobile in detail

2020-09-02

Genexus allowed us to start developing in technologies that we did not know very quickly, such as apps for android and iOS and web applications. We have quickly been able to make developments with the latest technologies for our clients.

Pros

- The ease of integrating with any technology -It does not require that the developer have knowledge of all the technologies for web and mobile development. - Ease of prototyping which allows a quick definition of what should be developed.

Cons

Documentation does not help to solve problems and is sometimes insufficient. In addition, the way of versioning the product often means that a problem with one version can only be solved with a new version with the consequent need to test the development.

The true value of GeneXus as a low code platform.

2020-09-15

We have done a number of interfaces with large tire corporations.

Pros

There are many features to like about this development tool and the company that makes it.

Cons

GeneXus does interact with a smart device camera but I'd like to see it become easier, especially with the web.

Genexus

2020-12-09

Bastante buena

Pros

La facilidad de multiplataforma, su tipo de compilación y tener un solo codigo fuente que nos sirva para compilar en varios lenguajes.

Cons

El desarrollo de smart device va muy lento comparado con los IDE oficiales en cuanto a APIS, y en cuanto a la compilacion en el caso de Android studio los requisitos para publicar en Play Sotore van solicitando cada vez alto nivel de API, y tipo de archivo en lugar de .apk ahora solicitan .aab cosa que genexus aun no hace.

Mi evaluación Genexus como herramienta desarrollo

2020-12-09

Las ventajas son múltiples: 1- Poder tener una Base de conocimiento que es escalable en el Tiempo. 2- Tener un orden en la creación de objetos, por su tipo y función.

Pros

La facilidad de Integrar nuevos desarrolladores, aunque desconozcan completamente la herramienta, he tenido la experiencia que a partir de las 2 semanas de entrenamiento, el recursos ya me esta produciendo programas con una calidad aceptable. Considero que es una de las ventajas de tener a GX. También tener la facilidad de múltiples integraciones, generar varios lenguajes de programación y tener una amplia documentación en la nube.

Cons

Como todo herramienta tiene sus contras: a) Velocidad que genera el código final (Especificación / Compilación), esto dependerá mucho de la arquitectura del PC. b) El desarrollador debe de estar claro que en la herramienta se diseña, el interpreta y genera software , no es un lenguaje de programación nativo.

Genexus é Produtividade

2021-01-20

Trabalho com software desde 1993, tendo conhecido Genexus somente em 2010. Na época, eu e minha equipe precisávamos migrar um sistema corporativo DMS do setor automotivo do ambiente Unix feito todo em linguagem procedural para algo mais moderno, sob pena de entrarmos em rota de obsolescência em pouco tempo, porém a empresa possuía recursos limitados de prazo, pessoal e fundos. Encontramos em Genexus a alternativa mais adequada para essa mudança, e surtiu efeito. Ao longo dos últimos anos, trabalhei com a ferramenta tanto na área pública quanto na área privada e nunca tive problemas em efetuar as entregas a meus clientes e empregadores.

Pros

Genexus facilita muito a rastreabilidade de código, possui serviço de versionamento, workflow, testes, integração com bancos de dados mais populares, e a parte de desenvolvimento de apps mobile, ao meu ver, está amadurecendo mais e mais a cada dia.

Cons

Genexus impõe uma filosofia de trabalho - não seja a ser algo ruim mas acaba limitando. Não se tem a plena liberdade de linguagens de código aberto, por exemplo. Também lança mão de diversos componentes externos para realizar determinadas tarefas mais avançadas, e para estes raramente haverá documentação disponível, além de uma dificuldade grande em receber o suporte adequado. Para se atingir resultados mais satisfatórios, é comum se lançar mão de templates, que por sua vez são vendidos por empresas externas e não são baratos.

Gran herramienta basada en gran idea pero en diseño ux/ui y facilidad de uso está quedando atrás

2020-12-10

Al desarollar el esqueleto de las apps es fácil y rápido pero luego para ocuparse de la parte gráfica ux/ui es un poco obsoleto y las integraciones con productos de diseño aún están verdes.

Pros

La facilidad de desarrollar rápidamente, hacer cambios y ver el resultado en minutos sin preocuparse por lo que pase en la base de datos.

Cons

Creo que es una herramienta excelente pero le falta bastante en la parte de ux/ui. Si bien la v16 y la 17 han mejorado en este aspecto aún van atrás respecto a otras plataformas de low code disponibles hoy.
