aPaaS - The Clear Leader

Ease-of-use

Value for Money

I've evaluated 7 or 8 of these types of platforms. OutSystems is the best overall platform with the largest feature set.

Pros

First and foremost, OutSystems is the most robust platform I've tried (and I've tried several). Their engineers have gone to great lengths to build in the core functionality that is required for complex, enterprise-grade applications. Their beginner tutorials are amazing - they've actually taken the time to vet their educational materials to make sure they don't introduce errata when platform versions change. The system is fast and certain aspects are literally as simple as drag-and-drop.

Cons

They don't have a good set of advanced tutorials. You can go to the community but so many of the developers on the platform aren't from native-English speaking countries. The language barrier can be a bit of a challenge when trying to understand more complex components of the platform.

Pros

Gives you the ability to develop an app and a responsive design web site all without writing a single line of code; ample supply of different styles/templates that can be used; IDE is able to provide wizards to rapidly develop your application/site; application/site is hosted in their cloud

Cons

Requires you to use their hosting service, which increases in cost as the number of users increase; required to use their database; tied into their IDE/ecosystem, which is closed

Pros

Outsystems enables software development to be way more faster compared with common development using C#.NET or other languages.
Integrations with external systems with SOAP and REST are easy to be implemented off the shell, but a developer can always implement specific libraries for other integrations.
It's easy to make simple queries but it's also possible to create specific database scripts (T-SQL, etc) and run them from the platform, if necessary.
It's also easy to implement a good framework architecture with Outsystems, since modules can be easily reused by different End User screens.

Cons

As it is very simple to develop applications with Outsystems, it can also be the source of some performance problems if the developer does not have much experience. But that's not a specific and unique problem of this technology.

The best application software to develop great and fast applications.

Pros

I've been using OutSystems for more than 10 years almost. It is the best development tool if you want to have a project in a short period of time and using Agile approach.

Cons

The prize of the software is unfortunately what I see as an obstacle to attract and retain new customers.

It's is very easy and fast to build a running application.
One might think that it's not very good to build great application, but once you get the hang of it you won't let it go.

Cons

At first I was always wondering where will I type my code.
For developers used to type code everyday, it might be a bit strange at the beginning.

really like the idea of being more focused on the business than in the code, but at the same time, if we want/need to be innovative and push our geek-side to create new components and integrations, we can also do it rapidly, using all the C# / Java / Javascript / ... capabilities. This, allied with the greater stakeholder engagement and satisfaction, the fast time to market, speed of change and full lifecycle maintenance and great community and support, are all keys to several successful projects on all kind of industries, top companies and all over the world.

Cons

What I like least about Outsystems is the fact that the licensing price is too high and it could help more the smaller and medium businesses.

Deliver applications more easily and faster.

Pros

It's extremely easy to use and customize, we can easily create an application to meet our goals. Being then personal or professional. We don't need to have a lot of programming knowledge to start one app.

Cons

The customer support could be better. Nowadays if we have an error on the IDE we don't get any type of feedback if it was fixed or not. We had a time when that happened.

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.

Pros

The holistic view of an agile project of IT. Easy implementation of Rest and Soap WebServices .
Easy integration with Database, safer and faster production climbs through Lifetime. Migration of new versions without complications in stack C#. Front-End user friendly and updated. Back-end It's all about business knowledge, easy to understand , develop and debug. It requires a smaller IT team meeting the requirements of the Scrum methodology. It has a fairly large community Outsytems components repository and excellent Webinars to learn and consolidate knowledge.

Cons

Stack java with more complicated migrations. It is not an ETL tool for now, but it is possible to implemented.
