    This helps our organization to produce software in short period of time.

    Pros

    I like the most in this software is this can be deployed to linux and windows environment. Another thing is the IDE. This has the best IDE for low-code solution software. Almost everthing you need is ready. The reuseability of projects components to other project is a bright idea.

    Cons

    the least i like with this software is the stack web design. This could be great if will be materialized UI.

    Rapid dev of solutions, ease of integration with other systems

    Pros

    Intuitive flow based IDE, quick drag and drop functionality can speeds up data filtering and preparation. Vast out of the box front end widgets

    Cons

    Not easy to get wider experience of platform's capabilities without expert assistance - not knowing what platform can do means not knowing what questions to ask.

    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

    The ease you create simple web apps. The integration environment which helps you deploy. New mobile version also works very well

    Cons

    You have to have a dedicated infrastructure for non-prod environments, you cannot develop locally as you're used to using other technologies

    10 year software development with Outsystems

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Value for Money
    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.

    Pros

    The fact that I can create an application in days rather than months or years, and customize the application as it suits my needs.

    Cons

    Outsystems is a licensed system which make it inaccessible for smaller budgets. Some versions contain annoying bugs which are solved very easily though.

    They don't have a application for mac os. The price could be cheaper, because when you try to make a simple project you have to buy a big license.

    Faster development Ease of mind

    Pros

    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.

    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

    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.

    Hosting the application on OutSystems increases the cost as the users number increase too, that makes it more expensive that other solutions.
