As its developers say, "It's not magic ' just a smarter way to create smart technology"

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

GeneXus is a powerful technology that "changes" many paradigms in software development, but with a positive impact on application development. Based on application modeling, GeneXus automatically creates the database, the code, the user interface. As its developers say, "It's not magic ' just a smarter way to create smart technology" In addition, this technology has an excellent research and development team, with a high technical level and commitment to technology.

Cons

Methodologies and processes of Quality Assurance and Software Testing must be well revised and adjusted. But everything is solvable!

"Go faster to market with GeneXus"

Reviewed 4 years ago

We developed in a very short time with a small team a complete business application for bakeries with ERP and administrative functionalities with web and mobile apps. 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

GeneXus generates software. 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. It makes the most for you and if it's necessary you can extend it with your own code. You can develop with the same environment software for web and smart devices.

Cons

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

A fantastic tool to help development and maintain critical multi-platform applications.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Implementation for foreign IT systems is extremely easy. We use it to automate many tasks which frees up resources and allows developers and testers to work freely. Using this software we can now solve many problems clients have extremely quickly and easily.

Cons

This software is less traditional than previous development methodology. It took us time to adjust and develop our skills to fully take advantage of the software.

Genexus

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

Genexus é Produtividade

Reviewed 3 years ago

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 proporciona produtividade, ponto. Um gestor pode optar por inúmeras opções para atingir seus objetivos de desenvolvimento de software, mas Genexus se encaixará perfeitamente quando a opção for trabalhar com recursos limitados - sejam eles financeiros, de pessoal ou de prazo - e em especial quando se tratar de uma aplicação com um escopo muito bem definido. 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.

¿Excelente producto de software?

Reviewed 4 years ago

Con GeneXus hemos implementado muchas aplicaciones web con diferentes exigencias técnicas y han sido un éxito. 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

Que es un poco costoso en las licencias para desarrolladores que desean empezar a usarlo. Podría tener una mejor integración con Azure para que aproveche todas sus características y ventajas actuales. Podrían tener un mejor control de las extensiones que son muy útiles pero un poco difícil de evolucionar entre versiones.

Software Development with GeneXus

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

GeneXus deals with so many details of application development (like database definition, reorganization and data conversion), has so many features that speed up the development process (like patterned User Experience and multiexperience), and gives you the ability to migrate from one platform/language to another easily that it gives you the chance to utilize technology and focus on business problems...

Cons

GeneXus deals with so many technical details and that frees you up to not have to worry about every little technical detail. 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.

Best development CASE Tool

Reviewed 3 years 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.

Very powerful tool with some flaws

Reviewed 2 years ago

As somehow who has used GeneXus for 10+ years I've heard a lot of hate towards the tool, mostly from people who hasn't used it no longer than a training course. GeneXus those have a lot of flaws, but the concept and the potential of the tool still stand strong.

Pros

GeneXus offers the power to develop applications for almost any runtime environment and has a very strong data modelling feature. Design to prototype time is very short. GeneXus has recently put more effort in the designing of good UI adding more way of setting a design system maintainable in the long term.

Cons

When developing a big application it's possible to find some areas where GeneXus does not offer a plausible solution. Customer Support does respond rapidly but they may not be able to solve the problem or help you in the time needed for a critical project. GeneXus offers a lot of different features for different types of development projects and technologies and somehow fails while trying to cover to much terrain.

GeneXus: Inference Engine, Generators, Extensibility and more

Reviewed 4 years ago

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. We are recently facing chatbot projects with Genexus, which has allowed us to enter this world, under the same philosophy of declarative development, abstracting ourselves from the complexities involved in knowing all the technologies that exist behind these projects.

Pros

For more than 15 years, from versions 8, 9 onwards, I was always surprised by its inference engine, allowing declaratively to describe in the GeneXus knowledge base what we want at the business level, and its powerful inference engine, is responsible for generating the database structure (always normalized), in the database engine that one wishes, and in the same way the transactional screens and other...

Cons

Probably its lack of diffusion and the shortage of GeneXus programmers is what is complex for us to handle. 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 very fast front end and backend development tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

Genexus is a tool that allows you to develop applications in a short time and its implementation is very simple to do, the deployment of applications is also very simple. The support from the Genexus team is very good, although it may take a while to respond. You also have the facility of being able to display in different programming languages.

Pros

A tool that allows you to develop very fast since you only have to worry about the development rules and you can focus on creating faster applications. It allows you to carry out implementations in different environments and make connection with almost any database, allowing you to deploy your development in almost any environment.

Cons

Its cost can be very high for small and medium-sized companies, making its implementation difficult. The documentation of this tool can only be found within the provider's wiki, and many times it is difficult to find a solution to the unforeseen events that you may encounter.

Developing commercial apps using a low-code framework

Reviewed a year ago

Business apps are being built and maintained by us. Applications adapt well to many technologies and are relatively simple to maintain. At the factory, I'm now building web apps to solve a number of problems that were previously solved using excel, greatly improving output and reducing user burden. Consumers were able to calculate their own prices, which created an incentive for them to cooperate with the company.

Pros

What I appreciate most about it is that all of its operations are automated, allowing for the construction and full administration of software systems without the need for substantial initial investments. enables you to concentrate on creating quicker apps rather than thinking about the challenges of creating new software. The IDE runs on Windows. But, the solution may be produced in dotNet, Java and Net Core. It produces a front-end client that is compatible with Angular, Android, iOS, and the web.

Cons

The wiki probably works across multiple platforms since it can support legacy systems. Because of its high cost, small and medium-sized organisations may find it difficult to deploy. The supporting material is appalling. Only a few samples are given, and there is no idex or thorough explanation. Because of this, learning takes a long time.

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. We generate quality functional prototypes in record time thanks to the ease of use of the tool and the organization of modules for coolant reuse, added to a high range of additional tools such as patterns and other varied and numerous extensions.

All in all a good product

Reviewed 4 years ago

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

Once you understand the mechanisms and rules of product development, good results can be achieved. 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
