Very powerful tool with some flaws

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.

Software Development with GeneXus

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 instead of worrying about technology and business problems. I've also experienced technology changes throughout the years as various languages have come and gone, our applications that were based on those technologies were simply regenerated into the next language and kept going. GeneXus allows you to develop truly future-proof applications. You focus on the business problems and let GeneXus worry about the technology.

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.

A tool to develop quickly without having to know all the technologies web and mobile in detail

Genexus allowed us to start developing in technologies that we did not know very quickly, such as apps for android and iOS and web applications. We have quickly been able to make developments with the latest technologies for our clients.

PROS

- The ease of integrating with any technology -It does not require that the developer have knowledge of all the technologies for web and mobile development. - Ease of prototyping which allows a quick definition of what should be developed.

CONS

Documentation does not help to solve problems and is sometimes insufficient. In addition, the way of versioning the product often means that a problem with one version can only be solved with a new version with the consequent need to test the development.

Reasons for switching to GeneXus

Because the tool we use is client server.

Excellent Rapid-Development Tool

Switching from coding in native languages, GeneXus has been a tremendous benefit to my workflow!

PROS

The speed at which I can roll out a new application is unbelievable. Genexus makes managing my database tables, front end programs, back end programs, and everything in between easier than ever!!

CONS

There is a bit of a learning curve, and some objects have documentation that is not very easy to understand. There is a good amount of videos, but a lot of them are in Spanish only.

Desarrollos simples, rápidos y eficientes

Muy favorable. Se aprende rapidísimo y los resultados son excelentes

PROS

Al ser un entorno declarativo, es muy fácil desarrollar aplicaciones. A medida que declaramos, documentamos y el código se genera automáticamente.

CONS

No hemos tenido tiempo de migrar a nuevas versiones, por lo que la actual Evo3 tiene problemas que esperamos estén resueltas an las últimas versiones.

Reason for choosing GeneXus

Por la experiencia de otros compañeros.

Reasons for switching to GeneXus

Porque Genexus nos permitía desarollar rápidamente en entorno web. Además nos permitía conectarnos con otros sistemas rápidamente, cosa que con el entorno anterior se hacía difícil.

¿Excelente producto de software?

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.

Reason for choosing GeneXus

Porque desarrollamos rápidamente una solución de software apegandonos a las mejores practicas y ultimas tecnologías que utiliza el mercado. Porque el mantenimiento de las mismas es muy rápido y fácil de integrar en producción. Porque no nos obliga a quedarnos con una sola tecnología sino que con la misma programación podemos compilarlo para muchos dispositivos sin inconvenientes (Web, Android, IOS, etc.).

Flexibilidade, qualidade e redução de custos

Trabalhamos com o GeneXus há mais de 25 anos, desde a versão GX 2.0. Em todos esse período, muitas linguagens surgiram e desapareceram. O GeneXus tem sido uma ferramenta, um companheiro indispensável em todo este contexto de constantes mudanças na área de desenvolvimento de aplicações. Continuamos desenvolvendo aplicações alinhadas com as mais novas tecnologias e tendências do mercado e, nesse tempo todo, não investimento um centavo em cursos de programação de novas linguagens. Todo o investimento que temos aplicado no GeneXus tem trazido resultados excelentes, com aplicações de qualidade, tanto para nossos clientes como para nossa empresa.

PROS

Poder gerar aplicações em diversas linguagens, acessando uma infinidade de banco de dados em qualquer plataforma (win, web e smartdevice) sem ter que programar uma linha de código é fantástico!

CONS

Tivemos algumas dificuldades principalmente para gerar aplicações para smartdevices. Vários erros de complicação onde não fica claro qual é a origem do problema e perdemos bastante tempo, entre várias tentativas, somente para descobrir a causa do erro. A percepção é que há condições sensíveis na programação onde pequenas coisas geram erros de compilação. Com o tempo, vamos pegando o jeito.

Reason for choosing GeneXus

Por ter a flexibilidade em gerar aplicações em várias plataformas, linguagens e banco de dados.

Reasons for switching to GeneXus

Principalmente porque o GeneXus nos permitiu focar em soluções para os clientes, ao invés de ter que investir esforços e recursos em linguagens de programação. Um exemplo simples é que, quando há uma necessidade de alteração em uma aplicação já desenvolvida solicitada por um cliente, o fazemos tranquilamente, sem nenhuma "desculpas" para o cliente, só porque vai dar "trabalho". Numa linguagem de programação convencional, sempre há a tendência de tirar essa ideia de mudar o sistema para o cliente, porque vai demandar muitas horas de programação...

DESARROLLANDO CON NECESIDADES CAMBIANTES DE LOS CLIENTES

He utilizado genexus desde hace mas de 9 años, me ha permitido dar soluciones de software a necesidades de un amplio ramo de campos, desde automotriz, farmacéutico, avicola, transportes, alimentos caloricos, gobierno, agrícola entre otros. No hemos encontrado un segmento hasta ahora donde genexus no haya podido resolver la necesidades del cliente.

PROS

No existe en el mercado una herramienta que te permita el desarrollo de conocimiento de negocio para clientes de forma ágil y eficiente, nos permite dar soluciones 10 veces mas rápido que con cualquier otra plataforma, hemos comprobando que compite con erp's dado que se ajustan mejor, nos ha permitido tomar clientes en donde otros erps fracasaron, modelando el conocimiento del cliente se arma una solución que les da mejor resultado.

CONS

La información en referencia a ejemplos es limitada, no todos queremos hacer una tienda virtual o una agencia de viaje, el manejo de errores es un proceso lento.

Reason for choosing GeneXus

Su solución es mucho mas completa que la de sus competidores, los otros solo cubrian una sola plataforma por ejemplo web, pero no movil o esctritorio, por otra parte solo se podia publicar en un solo ambiente ya sea windows o linux, genexus nos permitia movernos a la infraestructura que tuviera el cliente esto permitia abatir costo y mantenimiento

Reasons for switching to GeneXus

Nos tomaba hasta una semana de trabajo en desarrollo de software, lograr lo que hacíamos en genexus en dos horas, no hay comparación, simplemente no existe otra herramienta en el mercado, de desarrollo de software que te permita resolver problemas de forma tan simple.

Casa de software altamente competitiva

mas de 20 años de haber contratado la primera versión, hoy entidades a quienes prestamos nuestros servicios y licenciamos nuestros productos usan las herramientas sin inconveniente y con facilidades de mantenimiento.

PROS

Como parte del equipo que selecciono a Genexus como herramienta para emprender nuestros proyectos de creación de productos, estoy convencido 20 años después que fue la mejor opción, no habría sido posible competir y llegar a una calidad y robustez de nuestras soluciones si no es por las características y funcionalidades de genexus. La facilidad para incorporar nuevas tendencias, la facilidad para evolucionar a nuevas tecnologías y sobre todo conservar las reglas del negocio, son unas ventajas competitivas únicas con Genexus. Gracias a Genexus logramos que muchas casas de software en Colombia y en particular en mi ciudad Bucaramanga, la adoptaran como parte estratégica de su negocio.

CONS

Debe haber mas facilidades para casas de software pequeñas desde el punto de vista económico, y se debe mejorar el soporte local desde el punto de vista de acompañamiento, hay debilidades en casos especiales. Ya las ultimas versiones incorporan facilidades para el usuario Final, faltaría y una herramienta como un reporteador propio o una aproximación a una herramienta de tipo BI.

Reason for choosing GeneXus

Por que me permitió mantenerme en el mercado del desarrollo con alta productividad

Reasons for switching to GeneXus

Por la posibilidad de mantener las reglas del negocio a través del tiempo, la potencia y facilidad de desarrollo rápido.

Comparacion con otras opciones de desarrollo rápido de aplicativos.

GeneXus se ha utilizado ampliamente para modelar las reglas de los negocios menos genéricas y más volátiles de la organización . Resulta muy rápido y económico implementar cambios en las reglas de negocios cuando los aplicativos fueron desarrollados en GeneXus. Pero los diálogos resultan muy elementales y poco atractivos para el usuario sofisticado. Le estética resulta aburrida. No se saca partido de la capacidad gráfica de los computadores modernos.El programador no propende al reuso, sino que se apoya en la capacidad de GeneXus de generar un nuevo modelo en forma automática sin importar la cantidad de objetos afectados.

PROS

Permitió que el personal con menos capacidad de abstracción desarrollara aplicativos de calidad en poco tiempo. Con GeneXus se actualizaron todos los programadores que solo eran capaces de desarrollar aplicativos de negocios en entornos muy integrados como los sistemas IBM 3X (AS/400, I-Series) , D-Base II o FoxPro.

CONS

Resulta complejo para el programador sofisticado predecir el comportamiento del generador de aplicaciones. Los aplicativos suelen salir a producción con desprolijidades en el disparo de las reglas de validación. El diálogo no resulta tan atractivo como en de una aplicación desarrollada en un IDE de Java por un buen programador. La navegación de las tablas no siempre resulta óptima y lograrlo puede superar la capacidad del programador GeneXus promedio, que se ha abstraído de la problemática de la performance del motor de la base de adtos, la concurrencia de los accesos y otros pormenores técnicos.

Reason for choosing GeneXus

Porque contaba ya con muchas historias de éxito en equipos de trabajo similares al nuestro.

Reasons for switching to GeneXus

Para salir de las plataformas propietarias de hardware y para ofrecer al cliente la versatilidad de los ambientes cliente/servidor con interfaz GUI.

Produto muito bom, ganho altíssimo de produtividade e qualidade.

Somos clientes há mais de 20 anos, desde a época do DOS e percebemos que a ferramenta tem acompanhado as evoluções tecnológicas e sempre se manteve o mais fiel às suas origens de "escrever uma vez o código" independente da plataforma. Esse diferencial nos tornou em nossa cidade provavelmente a empresa mais evoluida tecnologicamente e a que sempre tem apresentado inovações frente a seus concorrentes. De modo geral, estamos muito satisfeitos.

PROS

A possibilidade de escrever numa única forma e poder gerar em várias plataformas. Migramos de Clipper DOS/DBF para Foxpro DOS/DBF para Visua lFoxpro/Win/DBF para Visual Foxpro/SQL e depois para C#/net web e algumas regras que foram escritas em DOS permanecem até hoje no sistema. Também desenvolvemos apps nativos Java para Android escrevendo 100% em Genexus.

CONS

Muitas e muitas vezes quando do lançamento de novas releases, coisas antigas que estavam funcionando normalmente param de funcionar sem explicação alguma. Nossos clientes não conseguem entender porque algo que estava funcionando muito bem, para de funcionar de uma hora para a outra.

Reason for choosing GeneXus

Reaproveitamento de código, manutenção durante a vida do produto 100% dentro da ferramenta, geração/manutenção do banco de dados da aplicação
