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

Take Control is a very nice value add for that package and a pretty nice remote management tool in of itself.
As I do most of my work remotely this product has been steady and reliable in both maintenance and support of end users. I very happy with the product.
The remote connection is pretty quick and stable, and the alert for the connection is a pop-up window in the center of the screen, something very useful to get help quickly.

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

The UI is ugly, and there are no way to start a chat for yourself, you have to receive a message from support to start chatting, and the buttons for showing/hiding the chat are not very visible.
When ending a session the remote computer is locked and this can be annoying. Maybe there's a setting to stop this but its not obvious and should really be optional not default.
Most of our other platforms and service options have a rebranding scheme that is lacking in Take Control. We use this primarily as a backup connection should our RMM remote have a problem.

Next Level Software Development

Reviewed 6 years ago

As an experienced programmer I had some trouble to make my life easier. Trained to use code I can create anything. But as I got used to OutSystems, I cannot think of an easier way to create solutions for business problems. It reduced the time spent on a lot of things, leaving time in projects for the new next thing to implement:) Beside that, the model driven development ensures code quality and control. Combined with the excellent usage of LifeTime, going from development, testing, acceptance and production is a breeze. And when it does give some problems, a roll back is just as easy.

Pros

- Speed - Quality - Flexibility - Business Processing Tools

Cons

- Rethink software development - Loosing control of the underlying technical things - SQL is managed by the system, so tuning and in depth control is harder

Great for fast web development

Reviewed 9 years ago

When I found this, it felt like the software I'd always been looking for - allowing me to focus on designing data and adding custom functionality, rather than the usual process of lots of work typing code that is simply doing routine tasks, especially when working with AJAX functionality. The graphical interface works really well in most cases; the majority of what we want to do can be done with the drag and drop logic, and either automatic or custom SQL as needed. There are times when you feel you're going round the houses to achieve a particular custom effect, but those times are fairly rare, and as the product evolves, they become more rare.

Pros

Very fast way to get prototype and proof of concept systems up and running Most custom features are pretty easy to add You can shell out to C# when needed Very easy roll-out of applications from dev to test to live

Cons

The underlying SQL database can get pretty complicated if you keep changing data structure - sometimes we define the database ourselves to get better control over it

We are still developing our apps; however, we see the benefits of Outsystems while we are developing

Pros

Outsystems allows our developers to develop apps that would take months to developer otherwise. It has so many features that are already pre-built, it is easy to use and fun for developers.

Cons

Outsystems is more difficult to learn than I thought it would be. I took the classes on line and followed the instructions. However, I was unable to do them on my own afterwards.

I found version 10 to be an improvement on various development techniques from version 9.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I like that it's written with React. I like that the mobile app generated (for iOS at least) does a good job at capturing the iOS look and feel. I also like that there are alot of customization options for custom blocks and the fact that you can trigger custom events from those blocks.

Cons

The id of the control is still not accessible in CSS and we have to resort to jQuery or use classes. The development process is mostly drag and drop and coming from a background of coding every little thing in the systems I've created, it seems at times, that I'm making a macro.

OutSystems makes life better for tech and business teams

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

OutSystems truly does live up to the promise of 10x development. The cost of the platform is offset completely by freeing up developers to provide vastly more value for every minute spent working on projects. Perhaps not obviously, it also improves the quality of products significantly. Developers get time back to actually work with customers in the target markets and operate on feedback. Divisions and companies can become more agile and keep up with an ever changing world.

Cons

There are some limitations with collaboration amongst teams. Because the platform uses a modeling language which exists in three dimensions, typical version control features like branching, merging, and pull requests do not currently exist. This issue can be overcome by changing the way you organize your teams and how they do work.

A High-End Solution for Platform-As-A-Service

Reviewed 4 years ago

Decided not to use it long-term as the ongoing costs were too high.

Pros

Business processes are easy to map and associate with business rules and the user interface. A very intuitive interface. Visual Studio integration is great, and application development is a much more manageable process. Built-in version control, repository contains all logic and business rules. Change management is less painful thanks to the abstraction of business rules within the system.

Cons

The cost was much higher than we could afford. This platform is ideal for larger development shops that need the efficiency of a well-managed platform.

Fast and easy!

Reviewed 8 years ago

I have been using OutSystems platform do develop the online properties for the NGO I lead. We developed a payment system from scratch, a system to manage applications and different schools for migrants and a dynamic and cool front end. The speed we need to make changes on our web applications and the number of features we need to deliver, given the size of our team (1 developer!) and financial limitations, is only possible with the OutSystems Platform.

Pros

Fast development, easy to change / maintain apps. Easy to learn (in 2 weeks you'll start rocking OutSystems development with no problem. If you know DB systems, and a high level programming language is enough to learn OutSystems fats and easy.

Cons

You will need to adapt a little bit to the IDE and it will take you 2 weeks to start being productive. It depends on you (of course). Also, you can start doing things from day 1 though.

The quickest way to a high quality application

Reviewed 4 years ago

It is the best option out there if you are looking to skyrocket your development agility. I am confident that the average website / web application could be rebuild in a few days.

Pros

The ease of use I amazing. With normal coding I would take a day to set everything up ( maybe more depending on the project ). With outsystems there is no need for setup. Just start a project and publish. That's it, The (web) application is already running! Also, no overly complicated data or OO design needed anymore. Outsystems mostly takes care of that.

Cons

There are still some really small points that need to be taken into account when developing with outsystems. to work faster, functionality wise there are still some things to be added. Also if you're looking to develop with outsystems if you're a small company, its very pricy in that scenario. Personally i would like to see a viable option for personal use / small businesses.

Quick development and Quality Deployment

Reviewed 3 years ago

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.

When using the correct architecture (4-layer) and you have a lot of espaces/modules ... you have to refresh a lot modules (rebuild manually) ... this can take some time ... So when you want to test your code you sometimes first have to wait for a rebuild

OutSystems

So much capability, while still being easy to use

Reviewed 3 years ago

There's so much available to use and so much acceleration available we heavily rely on this platform every day in our organization. Users who are note developers are very pleased with the speed at which we can deliver, the look and feel and how easy it is to give feedback to us as well.

Pros

In short, what I titled above. There is so much available to take advantage of from connectors, prebuilt integrations, screen design accelerators and even user feedback options. There's almost nothing I want that isn't already a part of Outsystems, and if there is I can use custom code integrations as well! I don't know if our team will ever have enough time or project to explore all Outsystems has to offer.

Cons

Some of the training was lacking for some advanced components at first (api creation, etc). That has improved with more training options, but also building more accelerators into the tool. (i.e. enter the url end point and it can automatically create functions and variables for you)
