OutSystems overview

What is OutSystems?

OutSystems enables you to to develop and deploy your apps in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid model. Develop once, for all devices. Integrate all your existing systems and applications. Reuse the skills and resources you have.

OutSystems offers a visual development environment to rapidly develop and change mobile and web applications. Developers can assemble all components necessary to completely define mobile and web apps, without writing any low-level code. You'll be able to model User Interfaces, Business Logic, Business Processes, Databases, Integration Components, Web Services, Security Rules and Scheduling activities.

For mobile-specific apps OutSystems allows you to model complex offline behavior, model business logic that runs on-device, and easily integrate with device-native capabilities like GPS, camera, email, calendar, etc.

You'll also find an integration SDK to quickly create custom components to integrate external applications and databases. It includes wizards to automate the integration of databases, library APIs and popular third party applications such as SAP. It works with Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse to assist in the creation of custom integration adapters. Integration adapters are published with 1-click and then reused many times in different web business applications.

OutSystems provides version control and configuration management of all mobile and web applications, services, integration adapters and other application resources. Operation teams can monitor and audit running applications to detect and isolate performance and quality issues, and to manage highly scalable, 24x7 application server farms.

OutSystems also provides all the functionality needed to manage the entire application portfolio centrally, stage interdependent apps and components, and streamline DevOps processes. It simplifies staging across environments by performing a complete dependency analysis across environments and deploying applications and all their dependencies with one click. It also allows you to define your IT team's access to applications and their components across all environments.

Review Source: Capterra

We've streamlined the whole Trade Promotion Management process, putting all into one platform, getting rid of e-mails and excel sheets and integrating all the info backwards towards production/demand planning and forward towards retail execution monitoring and compliance

Pros
Time to deploy, ease of adaptation, customer focus from 3rd party vendor, user interface and user experience

Cons
It's not cheap but if you consider that time to develop also adds a cost, then it's a fair deal

one of the best low code platforms in the market

Review Source: Capterra

overall, a very positive experience with the platform, the vendor personnel involved in the sale activity and also the community that was very helpfiul.

Pros
it is a very easy to get started product with very minimal or no prior programming experience. In addition, the platform is very intuitive and self guided and hence one can do very well on the platform if they know their use case and have a good systematic approach to leveraging the platform. There is also a very active community to help and the vendor personnel are also there to handhold along the way.

Cons
very honestly speaking, there is nothing that I dislike about the platform. It is very intuitive and one can learn to use and leverage the platform very easily and quickly.

Quick development and Quality Deployment

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-10-02
Review Source: Capterra

Outsystems has allowed our team to very quickly develop and release a production application in a matter of months with the inclusion of business units testing each feature along the way. It allows us to really adapt to an iterative development approach.

Pros
Outsystems uses the latest UI designs so we can focus on building out the business process. We are able to deploy in on environment and then quickly send it over to a test environment for our customers to be engaged in the SDLC. Code changes and security enable quality deployment into our production environment and minimizes any breaks in our application.

Cons
You can sometimes reach a roadblock and the customer support might take a bit longer to answer your questions if you did not purchase the higher SLA support package. Certain bugs can occur when using the Service Studio but patches usually fixes it in a timely manner.
