Pros

He helps us with the various projects we have in the Company, which is the most important part of my job. It perfectly supports project flow and helps us create flawless projects.
The user interface is great and give a lot of opportunities. It is a great tool to examine for further developments.
Secure, feature rich, great support, great performance, easy to learn development environment.

Pros

It is an intelligent tool that in just a few clicks and knowledge about development can generate a good information system.
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.

Cons

Difficult to do an on premise implementation and dealt with disaster recovery.
The level of training and information for people with some knowledge is weak. They are either very confusing documents, or it is all very vague.
At the beginning we had some doubts but now, we do have lots of apps including core business apps. Honestly, without Outsystems, I just cannot imagin how can we would face covid crisis.

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.
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.
Because of its high cost, small and medium-sized organisations may find it difficult to deploy. The supporting material is appalling.

GeneXus

Bueno acorde al precio.

Reviewed 2 years 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.
