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.

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.

I really likes to work with Outsystems. Allows to the developer to focus in the business stuff, dont losing too much time programming.

Pros

The easyness thats give to the developer to understand the logic implemented. In other words, anyone that see the code for the first time can understand, without too much effort what are suppose to do.

Cons

The Imtegration studio (tool used to make integrayion with other libraries) seemsto be stopped in time.

No more features, just release a stable version of a cross-platform service studio (don't use wine)

Reviewed 4 years ago

Although our company can deliver products really fast products, they usually look like prototypes, a web view with a web site is not a mobile app. Web apps usually have really bad user experiences to and the outsystems website is also a prof of this. So developing in outsystems platform takes all the fun away from the development process. We spend more time recovering from crashes and merges then dragging balls around.

Pros

Ease of use, rapid prototyping a easy deployment

Cons

General responsiveness is a joke, really easy to deliver a product with low quality standards, "code" merges are always a mess, the service studio crashes more often then not.

The IDE of my dreams

Reviewed 12 years ago

The Agile Platform is a truly unique idea in the world of development tools. By providing the Integration Studio, it addresses the common concerns about systems that promise “no more hand coding.”

Pros

I really liked the integrated workflow, particularly deployment (and the rollback functionality), and the fact that it already takes care of scale out scenarios, security, and other common headaches.

Cons

Is the Agile Platform for everyone? No, it isn’t. But for developers working on typical Web applications

Excellent software and very well thought about the end to end process of software development

Reviewed 5 years ago

Eliminates lot of issues encountered in traditional software development. Helps to build really quality applications. Piece of mind after deploying to production.:D

Pros

-Easy to use and built in ui and template gets people up and running in few mins. -Structured development -Built in widgets prevents developers from developing the same components again and again (like pagination, menu bars, navigation and many more) -Focus on solving business problems instead of technical challenges -Code reuse is encouraged as AOs are tied to licensing -Deployment is nothing to worry about. Database scripts, versioning of code and migration all taken care by the platform -Refactoring is piece of cake with TrueChange. -Developing CRUD applications is a breeze but complicated applications can also be developed with ease. -Monitoring and logging taken care by default no setup is needed.

Cons

-Although custom code can be written via integration studio, it would nice if we could write code inside of the service studio itself. -Some features like event based programming or reflection or looping fields of an object could be supported as out of the box features -Updating shared extensions will result in all the applications (that are using the extension) being redeployed -For the mobile apps, it will be good if the apps converted to purely native. (only an opinion) -Could have licensing for individuals (free lancers) :D

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.

Why didn't I started with LowCode platform OutSystems earlier?

Reviewed 4 years ago

The customers for which we deliver projects are from many different industries, we build solutions for field service companies, insurance companies, pension administrators, business consulting companies, etc.

Pros

The speed in which we can deliver web and mobile applications for our customer, and the developer experience, where most repetitive work is taken care of by OutSystems. Also the fact that it is a complete platform with all the DevOps build in is great! Last but not least the OutSystems community is a very active community of professionals, help is always available very promptly why you get stuck.

Cons

Debugging capabilities not (yet) up to par with traditional development tools like Visual Studio, especially the ability to change values on the fly and to alter execution path. Then again visual debugging mobile application in an iPhone or iPad from my Windows developer laptop is amazing!

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.

OutSystems: Great Off-the-Shelf Functionality, Difficult Integration

Reviewed 4 years ago

I'm not currently using OutSystems. Originally, I planned to develop an enterprise-level platform, but the unique functionality I was trying to build was too difficult for me to figure out, and the help wasn't that helpful. Eventually, I gave up on it and went back to building a custom package in C# (Visual Studio).

Pros

I really like the OutSystems IDE. The developers have made it look great and it's pretty stable. I love how easy it is to set up the data structure then add basic pages. I really liked the training paths offered on the OutSystems website.

Cons

Low code is sometimes code for difficult-to-extend. I evaluated more than a dozen different PaaS companies in an effort to build a multi-tenant web-based application. I started to get the feeling that most of them catered to the insurance industry. While the out-of-the-box features can be very useful (albeit somewhat difficult to implement for a newcomer) extending the functionality of the platform is a nightmare. Also, while I really liked the training paths offered, the content tended to run a few versions behind. Also, they don't have great training videos on the more complex features. You get good (though dated) training on core functionality and you're left to your own devices on more complex methods.

Low code with OutSystems

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

Outsystems offers a low code, rapid application development and distribution platform. It integrates with all your existing systems and offers management and analysis screens within itself. Complex workflows can be designed using visual development tools. Another feature is that we can use the application we developed in both mobile and web environments. Complex workflows can be designed using visual development tools. Another feature is that we can use the application we developed in both mobile and web environments.

Cons

Requires training to use the system. Another disadvantage is that to develop applications, you need to install a program in your local (Service Studio). We develop the application using this program and deploy it to the cloud environment. It is easy to do these operations, the documentation is guiding enough, but making the application with the web interface is nicer and easier, as in quickbase and caspio.

As a c#-developer I was pretty sarcastic about a low-code platform such as outsystems. But the feature Integration Studio pushed me over the edge to use it. Since then I am using Outsystems everyday with pleasure. And you know what, the feature Integration stdudio where you can fall back to c#/Java I actually rarely touch. This is the best part of Outsystems, you can code if you want but they actually make it so great you don;t have to anymore!

Long term low-code OutSystems user review

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've been working with Outsystems for the last 12 years and I've built a lot of different systems while working for different employers. From automating business processes to rebuilding complete core systems. I've also built several mobile applications for different user groups. The overal experience on all projects is that the platform is very stable and improves continuous with every update. Nowadays they split the Studio from the Platform and this results in even faster delivery of new functionality. I've never had any regret from the switch I made 12 years ago.

Pros

Speed of Development Ease of technical implementations Open Community around Outsystems

Cons

Since I'm an expert Outsystems users, I don't like the initial responses of the support desk. It takes time to get to the right person at the support desk.

Built-to-change

Reviewed 6 years ago

After spending some time working with other web technologies, such as .NET, python and Java, it's difficult not to feel some enthusiasm while developing a brand new web app with the OutSystems platform. But why? ... some may ask. Well, if you spend 5 minutes looking at its IDE (Service Studio), you will quickly understand. The way the fundamental concepts are organized on it - Data Model, Business...

Pros

Well, the motto is not mine, but I surely have to apply it in here: "The IDE of my dreams!" This is certainly a good reason to drive the adoption of the platform. Any developer keened to fulfill the business needs on time will surely understand the advantages of using it for development. The simplicity allied to the legibility of the written code in this IDE, reduce the gap between the business requirements and its materialization into lines of code. For last but not least, the built-in application Lifetime - which is part of the platform - is surely a gem for any DevOps team, providing them a powerful mean to control and to revert any deployment between environments.

Cons

Knowing that the road to perfection always ends up in the horizon, there are definitely two points that should be mentioned: the first concerns the lack of legibility of the application's Javascript and the second one, the lack of built-in Unit Tests. If your application is mainly a client-side application, written in Javascript, the platform may not be the right solution for it. In the other hand, if it's intended to execute all the business logic at the server-side, you should definitely spend some time evaluating it.
