Outsystems is a great RAD platform

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.

Easy to use, to implement and to deliver. Quickness in your software delivery, really AGILE.

It really helped me build "rock-solid" software (web and mobile) in very short time.

Pros

The Outsystems platform allows you to build from scratch any software. With numerous built-in functions, it allows you to build a simple form page in less than 5 minutes. It's really simple and intuitive to use. No more delays in delivering software.

Cons

Some of the features aren't very flexible and there's always the need to use some javascript functions to built more complex pages. Still needs to mature a little bit in the next releases.

Best Low Code Platform Ever...

Pros

I have been using outsystems for an year now and I must say that I am really impressed with it . This is the best low code platform that I have used till now. The positive point about that I liked is , its easy to learn ,You don't need to spent lot of time learning it and most of the key features/logic are already present that can be easy included in the application. Another positive point is its user and role managements . Implementation of Authentication and Authorization is very easy here.

Cons

The only con that I witnessed is , you need internet connectivity work in outsytems (for Web Development).

Simple To The Point Review

Overall I highly recommend it for business projects and people who need to develop fast. But for those who like writing the code themselves like me. You will probably end up using the platform and coding stuff on the side like me. So I really like what they have built and highly recommend investing some time into learning a bit about the platform. :D

Pros

Speed of development is insane. Outsystems really cuts dev time to a minimum. The speed that you can build things from the Functionality that is built into the system is really good. I use the platform at work for web dev. But it offers app dev as well and for android and ios in one build. No need to build different builds or versions for different platforms. One build covers android and ios. Overall there functionality is fantastic.

Cons

It get's kind of complex as you get more in depth as to what it is you are capable of doing with the platform. But like everything you can be average or great and if you wanna be great you gonna have to put in the time to learn.
The biggest personal downfall of the system is that it takes away a lot of the actual coding. For me this is more of a preference as I personally love to sit and crunch code myself. And you can build with code in there program but there's really no point unless you doing something extremely custom because they have already built in the functionality. The system overall is great, really simple and drag and drop.

No wonder they've won so many industry awards!

Outsystems has consistently been one of the leading players in low code app development, but not only is it superior to its competitors, Outsystems shines out from the rest as an innovative company with integrity that pushes the boundaries of possibilities.

Pros

Coming from a professional development background, one of the main things that has struck me since developing in Outsystems, is how the chances of the existence of bugs within an app is hugely minimised compared to regular coding methods. That in itself will reduce development costs significantly because of the time usually spent bug fixing and rolling out new versions. And of course the speed at which you can develop stable and well functioning apps is nothing short of astounding.

Cons

I can honestly say that, so far, there is nothing I really dislike about this platform.

Suficient

We are using Outsystems to create insurance related apps.

Pros

You can build basic sw in little time

SoC is easy to implement

Easy to monitor issues

Cons

Search functionality isn't user friendly

It "crashes" too many times, specially when detaching eSpace tabs(originating another instance of outsystems)

Has the number of components grow inside, lets say an action, the "messier" looks

Pros

Cons

I thing that the licensing is to high and hard to justify. The 1st support line should have more skills to despiste some problems

Great Low code platform

The value I add is all about user experience, system integration and data flows. OutSystems let me focus on this and improve easily the whole product quality as we loose less time working on details.

Pros

This software let me focus on the value I can add for my company and our user base and stop wasting too much time on implementation details. We can also provide quickly some great UI with minimal effort that really help improving the user experience.

Cons

Integration is less polished than the main ServiceStudio work. both on the software side and on the documentation side.

Great Development Tool

The experience has been very good since it allows developers to meet customer requirements faster focusing on the business requirements instead of the "wasting" time on technical details.

Pros

Speed of development.
Time to Market.
Speed on translation customer requirements into code.
Allows the developers to implement and develop skills in less time.

Cons

Unit testing can be improved.
Automated testing is not yet mature.

From idea to business recognised by the top 6 major oil companies in 12 months

As a CIO I am responsible for the implementation of IT systems for more than 20 years now. I worked a major corporate enterprise scale enterprises. The whole Outsystems experience was something unique in the positive sense of the word.

Pros

The agility, scalability and robusnesss is incredible.

Cons

The subscription price made us doubt whether to choose for Outsystems as they are priced relatively high to some alternative vendors.

Learn fast, develop fast.

I probably won´t code in Java again. Hopefully.

Pros

The ability to create applications faster. The ease of learning the basics. Publishing is not complicated as long no merging of changes.

Cons

It gets slow to publish when applications get bigger and has more dependencies.

The quickest way to a high quality application

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.
