Pros: Rapid Web and Mobile Application Development. You can create a basic web application or mobile application within minutes. Managing Deployments has never been so easy. Managing security framework for an application has never been so easy. Managing environments infrastructure, Load balancing, Elasticity, DB setup and object creation has never been so easy. There are lots of good features that platform provides will definitely overcome some of the cons listed below.

Cons: Heavy customizations in cloud environment is not possible. For example if you want to enable CDC options or Full Text Search Options in SQL Server is not possible.

Overall: This product is one of the best cutting edge tool in the market for Rapid Application Development. This product shines if you to want to create web applications or mobile applications in a fast paced manner. There is some learning curve involved if you want to do lot of customizations on the front end but back end business logic implementation should be a piece of cake with lot of training material (videos and documentation) available on outsystem.com

Pros: See my review ... And let's not forget the amazing community that has been very helpfull ... it is alive and kicking

Cons: See my review; difficult to get an idea of the license you need as a starting company

Overall: Working / developing / creating with the OutSystems platform for a year now .. Sceptic as I always am about the promise of low-code and then "getting a lot of magic" ... OutSystems does a very good job in actually keeping their promise. Yes there is a learning curve but you get into it very fast. Yes it is more for developers than for business people ... but we can now both work together much faster in creating something we need / like. Also very impressed with the deployment process. It is a breeze. And I actually perform updates without sleepless nights because the platform helps me check several dependencies during development but also at deployment time. By the way .... this is platform not a tool. You can use the platform to support companies with a lot of users .. it is serious shit ;-) Only thing that is difficult to get an idea of is what type of license you need. For my client we had to buy additional points because we needed more ... that is of course a bummer ... so OutSystems if you are reading this ... this would help customers ... getting a better estimate of the license they need. But the pro's out weigh the con's by far. Good luck choosing your next platform!

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a platform not just a tool ... Once you start using this you will soon use it to rebuild other systems in your company ... So make sure you are prepared for that ;-)

Comments: I have been using the platform for almost a year now and started from scratch with zero experience and learning from the tutorials only.
It is really intuitive, provides a set of very useful built-in features and the possibility to integrate solutions with third-parties and therefore it maximizes the capability to develop simple or complex web or mobile applications in a really short period of time.

Pros: It is easy and quick to do simple tasks. Creating the framework and fleshing the front end out is very simple.

Cons: Complex task are not quicker at all.

Overall: I started on my own and learnt a lot. Got a job doing OutSystems web and mobile development. It is a great platform. For more complex projects it is not straight forward. But ingeneral an amazing platform that is the future in development.

Recommendations to other buyers: Working with multiple users on the same project can cause issues but version 10's individual debugging works much better. Get involved use it the more you do the better it gets. Ask when you are stuck the support is fantastic.

Version 10 is Phenomenal!

Comments: I have used OutSystems from 6 to 8 versions. I am a .Net Developer and OutSystems Developer. Haven't tried the OutSystems 10 (the most recent) but it has really interesting new features. From my experience OutSystems is excelent for CRUD because it's really fast. It's an expensive platform, but for a developer it's really useful for creating CRUD screens and backend screens, it's really intuitive also...but not for power users. It's still programming and a programmer must have a really logical brain and should keep good pratices, which the platform helps to ensure. I can also add extensions with .Net code for things the platform hasn't got already. It keeps things organized and ensures good pratices and helps in finding errors etc..Since it's graphic developing with I recommend at least 8 Gbytes of RAM. It will save lots of time for things that screens with logic behind, and keep thins pretty and clean. Minor problems I can say it still needs to increase the speed of publishes of the code and sometimes you cannot do DRY. But it's really a must try and see... it's still improving and it's now on OutSystems 10 (I haven't seen yet)...I must say the price is the biggest problem...

Promises great savings; Takes a little time to get there.

Comments: Having used Outsystems to improve time-to-market on a small order portal/ecommerce project we realized some savings in terms of effort but I feel Outsystems has more to give. This is a limitation of our skillset and knowledge, not the Outsystems platform.

Where could Outsystems improve? Documentation. Yes, there's lots of tutorials, courses and videos, but sometimes you just want to google the answer and read it. The forum isn't that great for this as often people share projects and you have to dig inside those to find the answer. This is probably a symptom of Outsystems being a graphical development environment.

The other thing you'll find it there's a raft of new terminology to grasp, and a rather disjointed collection of tools: Lifetime, Service Studio, Integration Studio, Forge etc. You'll need a roadmap to find what you need and where it lives.

We're currently working on upgrading our environment from v9 to v10 - not as straightforward if you have live production apps running, so it's something to consider.

But overall we are very much looking forward to rolling this out across our development teams and users. I'm not finding resistance from my hardcore PHP devs (I re-assure them by building PHP APIs to work with OutSystems), and my junior dev is enjoying the instant rewards of a rapid development platform.

Comments: OutSystem's is hands down, THE BEST, low-code, RAD platform there is. The platform enables small teams of 1-3 good developers to do remarkable things in a very short amount of time. Allows companies with limited resources to build great applications, as well. Also has a great community that will help with any problem you encounter.

Comments: As a c#-developer I was pretty sarcastic about a low-code platform such as outsystems. But the feature Integration Studio pushed me over the edge to use it. Since then I am using Outsystems everyday with pleasure. And you know what, the feature Integration stdudio where you can fall back to c#/Java I actually rarely touch. This is the best part of Outsystems, you can code if you want but they actually make it so great you don;t have to anymore!

Comments: The first great thing about OutSystems Agile Platform is that it make everything easy. By removing the standard-but-trickier part of all websites/apps, it allows the development team to focus on the real issues. And instead of watching pages and pages of code, there are modular blocks of operation that are quite easy to understand, but anyone can add the old-fashioned code if they like or have to.

The second best part is that OutSystems controls its product like few companies do, and offers bootcamps and a single online community so that everyone can start working by the book and reach all the pros in no time. You can do it on your own to start, or you can jump into the the professional version and see architecture recommendations, design and usability, server performance and everything else.

No need for any particular set of skills to do a full stack application. It can be a one person job, or a full team working on the product

Comments: I was attracted to Outsystems immediately. I enjoy the modern feel and setup of this platform and ease from which I was able to create my application. A "customer contact/product management" app was required for my business and now I wave one which works seemlessly on the web and in mobile mode. Little code (with the assistance of the online help) and no code (totally me) was required to set it up and deploy it to the cloud. I'm fortunate to have found Outsystems.

Comments: I've actually had occasion to make RAD-style tools in the far-flung past. This is the sort of platform I would have made if I could.

Some of the initial steps are a little harder than you would expect, but once you are used to where everything lives, it's easy to find it again.

Coding is done via flowcharts, and these are pretty easy to use, not to mention fairly easy to use straight up as diagrams to show other people what's going on.

OutSystems is pretty good for only showing you matching options, e.g. if you need a date, it will show you everything local with a date and important functions, like the current date. If you adopt certain naming conventions, OutSystems will fill in the type for you: IsSuccess will become Boolean on account of the "Is" part. JobEntryId will become a Job Entry Identifier.

Database design is extremely easy, just add, adjust and publish in a tree or diagram and migrations are automatic, though when you remove things, it won't remove them from the database automatically.

Using the databases is even easier. Drag and drop the columns, join whatever is not automatically joined, add sorting and filters and OutSystems will try to choose a sample of your data. This sample can be changed by changing the test value, e.g. let's see UserId = worker1.

There's a "business processes" that looks strongly inspired by BPMN 2.0, though it is not identical. These can be used for long-term states or even just simple asynchronous programming.

The web interface side of things is pretty slick, though it can be quite ornery about exact placement. I would recommend using the widget tree view instead when this happens to avoid frustration. There is some pretty good support for Responsive Web Design, especially if you choose a theme designed to show on many devices.

If you are missing some functionality, one option that is available is to make extensions. I've made a few of these. The programming side is a bit esoteric , and there are some odd holes (can use a list of records but not a list) but it's pretty good once you get the hang of it.

A few complaints or improvement opportunities: it would be nice if it was a bit more object-oriented. Built-in tools for data migration, especially between Development, Testing and Production, would be most welcome. I also found myself desperately wishing for a try...finally construct. Java versions of components are a bit neglected.

It's been very, very productive all said.

Recommendations to other buyers: There's actually a fair amount of power here for something that looks "toy-like" from a distance. Prepare for the occasional thing to just be really difficult, like doing master-detail lookup lists, but they will seem almost sensible in retrospect :)

Comments: As an experienced programmer I had some trouble to make my life easier. Trained to use code I can create anything. But as I got used to OutSystems, I cannot think of an easier way to create solutions for business problems. It reduced the time spent on a lot of things, leaving time in projects for the new next thing to implement:) Beside that, the model driven development ensures code quality and control.
Combined with the excellent usage of LifeTime, going from development, testing, acceptance and production is a breeze. And when it does give some problems, a roll back is just as easy.

Recommendations to other buyers: - Go for it, it will amaze you :)

Comments: I was able to start use ServiceStudio though I have a little knowlege of Database and SQL. OSP allows us to get pleasure and fun by starting developing applications first, and then we are interested in the back architechture such as SQL sentence, server and client structure, and so on and start learning. It will be good tool to start learning of developing web application, and fill the requirement of professional developer.

Recommendations to other buyers: Japanese customer want more long time support for each version of OSP. Because it is common among Japanese companies to do all the test before updating, so it is not easy to update the version in Japan than other countries.

Comments: After spending some time working with other web technologies, such as .NET, python and Java, it's difficult not to feel some enthusiasm while developing a brand new web app with the OutSystems platform. But why? ... some may ask. Well, if you spend 5 minutes looking at its IDE (Service Studio), you will quickly understand. The way the fundamental concepts are organized on it - Data Model, Business Logic, Interfaces and Processes - they easily allow you to materialize the business requirements into each layer, creating a thriving application. At the end, if the business needs change or if requires some adjustments, the complexity to change the application, in order to be compliant with the needs, is far more simple with this technology. In a nutshell, it's a real built-to-change technology.
Driving the focus to my latest experience with the platform at ENGIE, the applications developed in OutSystems are actually allowing the end-users to perform both day-ahead and intra-day nominations to the Electricity Transmission System Operators (TSO) - Elia and TenneT.
In one hand, knowing how critical it is to have an energy imbalance of zero all the time, in order to avoid any energy disrupt of the network grid, and in the other hand, given the floating energy market prices and the unexpected interventions to the power plants, it's critical that the applications be constantly responsive, enabling the end-users to adjust the Production Plans and to communicate these changes to the TSO within 15 minutes.
This kind of business responsiveness, allied to the fact of having new versions of the applications going live every 2 months, demands a zero-downtime during each application deployment. With the OutSystems platform, the goal of having a Go-Live without any runtime interruption can be easily achieved.

Comments: I've been working with the Outsystems Platform for 5 years now, delivering enterprise-grade web applications at a much higher speed than with the classic coding languages.
Being a platform, it is also much more than just a code-generation tool. It combines all the tools you need in the full life cycle of an application. Development, maintenance, monitoring.
All this comes at a steep license cost, but if you look further than the initial time gain, you'll notice that over the full life cycle of an application, the cost reduction is even much bigger.

Comments: Pros -
The software is great. Easy to learn. Quick to use. Perfect for working on agile projects - we've not used wireframes as it's just as quick to make changes directly in Service Studio to show the customer. The customers have been very pleased with the products delivered. Plenty of 'add ins' available on the Forge, in fact pretty much everything that you could want.

Customer support has overall been very good (still waiting for a response on one support call that I raised some time ago hence the missing star). Training has been good.

Cons -
Discovered yesterday that our cloud based servers can't be adjusted to British Summer Time (currently) so we'll now have to add in a function to allow for this. Would have been useful to have been made aware of this before we wrote the applications.

Would prefer more help documentation rather than having to wade through forums to try and find the answers to questions. The answers are usually there - somewhere - but it can take some digging around.

Comments: OutSystems technology has been offering for years a new concept of software development that brings together concepts that were traditionally hard to harmonize, like business vs technology or innovation vs time to market. Software developers can work side by side with their sponsors, engaging and generating business requirements so simple and fast, that new trends and models for software implementation may be redesigning and reinventing as we speak.

Comments: There is no doubt that I can develop things quickly. The interface is friendly and I am glad with the results.
I could realize that new courses are available and this help me a lot to learn more the Outsystems Platform. However, it is not easy to find a job and people that can share the experience together like a team. The community helps a lot but to think professionally it is needed to go to another level.
When the subject is acquisition. There is no an opportunity to buy a license because the price is expensive to the beginner. I felt this problem because I am thinking to sale a product and I am having financial problems for that.

I am VERY happy with the platform.

Comments: Most development environments I've used either give a very high level of control with slow development, or rapid development with hardly any control if you want your application to work in a specific way.

OutSystems, for me, strikes an excellent middle ground. It's allowed the rapid development of a number of useful applications in a fraction of the time that standard coding would take, but we've still been able to add a significant amount of business logic.

Being free from setting up AJAX calls etc. and having that all happen automatically gives me far more confidence that the code will be correct, saving me from copy and paste errors that are sadly too common when working on those boilerplate type pieces of code myself.

It's great that the environment keeps improving, with increasing support for mobile apps and responsive web design.

Pros: - Full featured platform, no need to develop time consuming DALs;
- Easy integration trough WebServices and custom extension;
- Integrated direct queries to database engines, iSMS and mobile application targeting;
- Allows for quick prototyping, accurate cost prediction and end user acceptance;
- Available for both .Net and Java stacks;
- Generates usable code;
- Very easy to manage.

Our users have now a rich knowledge about agile methodologies and the capabilities of this platform, they participate in building our systems in a way I could never imagine before. Most user needs are now presented in a structured and concise way by the users themselves! I've never seen this before with non-tech users on other platforms.

Cons: - v4.2 IDE could be faster - I've tested last version (v5) and it looks spot on!
- No open source database support yet.

Overall: It's a great tool to help IT deciders who focus on meeting user expectations on time and within budget.
The rapid prototyping possibility along with an agile methodology really helps regaining a good reputation for IT projects.

This platform has come a long way since I first started using it back in 2007.

I strongly recommend it!
