The true value of GeneXus as a low code platform.

We are development software for the Tire Retail and Retreading industry where there are not many options to choose for this industry, especially retreading. We have done a number of interfaces with large tire corporations. GeneXus being a low code platform has allowed us to remain lean thus reducing overhead without suffering productivity losses. In my experience I was able to reduce the size of a development team in a COBOL shop from 14 developers down to 2 developers and a project manager without loss of productivity.

Pros

There are many features to like about this development tool and the company that makes it. GeneXus is very in tune with technology and the trends and where its going. This allows me the comfort in knowing that when a digital wave comes I will not have to learn a new development tool in order to build solutions for the new technology. GeneXus has allowed me to carry my hard work from the 90's and without having to reprogram and rewrite thus preserving my hard work. I have literally brought AS/400 code to the windows client/server and then to the web.

Cons

GeneXus has just about filled my wish list over the years. They really listen to their customer base and are genuine in doing so. I personally would like to see more on how to take advantage of things such as Live Video streaming as video content is huge these days. GeneXus does interact with a smart device camera but I'd like to see it become easier, especially with the web. This may already be in existence with their new GeneXus 16 version and I've just not read about it.

Reasons for Choosing GeneXus

Much simpler to learn the coding language, building databases, managing structural database table changes without data loss.

Excellent development tool

I started using Genexus in 1998 generating source code for MS Visual Basic in client/server architucture. Now I am creating native apps for iOS/Android and WEB applications. One of the most interesting features is that I can focus in business and Genexus resolves the techinical part. It really simplifies software development and increase productivity!

¿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.

Reasons 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.).

Genexus una forma Agil para desarrollar Software

Es una herramienta que la uso desde el año 1990 en sus primeras versiones Gx. 7.0, Genexus evoluciona a través del tiempo con los distintos lenguajes que aparecen en el mercado y los acopla a su tecnología para que te sea muy fácil usarlos. Esta herramienta me ayudo como analista programador a poder aplicar y concentrarme en la realidad del negocio y luego automatizarla; sus objetos y forma de trabajar a través de sus base de conocimiento (KB) te permiten poder trabajar con múltiples modelos de arquitectura de desarrollo usando motores de base de datos distintas y lenguajes de programación diversos, con tan solo aplicar el lenguaje de programación Gx y aplicar código nativo en ciertas partes del código que uno desea detallar. Muy recomendable su uso.

Pros

Es una herramienta con objetos muy sencillos y fácil de programar con un lenguaje claro y conciso, te permite trabajar en una KB - Base de conocimiento, con múltiples arquitecturas, es una herramienta Ágil que te ayuda a construir desde simple prototipos hasta complejas funcionalidades. Además cuenta con una plataforma que te brinda capacitación y apoyo en el uso de esta herramienta y tiene comunidades donde se comparte experiencia y te brindan solución a cualquier tipo de problema.

Cons

Es una herramienta muy completa con funcionalidades muy buenas que en algunos también vienen por separado y/o se actualizan a una mejor versión y para tenerlas debes pagar por su licencia de uso.
