Comments: A very comprehensive product with features covering a wide breadth of applications and providing a rewarding user experience for both customers and developers. It allows you to develop very fast and deliver quality and business value in a fraction of time when compared with the classic DevOps approach. I strongly recommend it!

Pros: One click deploy takes the entire dev-ops pain away.

Cons: no support or guidelines for testing.

Recommendations to other buyers: Start with experienced developers to set a solid base for your project and prove you can deliver business value at unprecedented speed and quality.

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.

Pros: The tutorials are extremely well made!! I was shocked at the time and effort placed into making them. Congrats for that. As for the platform, there is nothing like it.

Cons: This has to do with me... If I was more knowledgable in developing, I would be able to use Outsystems to a greater capacity. I'm just scratching the surface.

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.

Pros: The hard things made easy - the BPMN capability, the tree editing and republishing of data entities, the Responsive Web design. Also, the fairly intelligent guessing about properties, the rather speedy resolution/propagation of name changes, deletions, etc. The monitoring software is pretty good.

Cons: If you're developing an extension, it's a four-step manual publishing process to update. No try..finally. The licensing model per certain kind of object encourages bad coding to try to save costs. The visual editor for interfaces goes crazy far too often, making the widget tree the only consistent way to edit them. The lack of built-in data migration is my biggest sticking point right now.

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: Outsystems is a great platform. The final quality and the speed of devolpment is trully amazing. Like other tools, Outsystems Platform don't is for all the situations. It's not for all sizes of business. But, if your goal is make a great Saas application, with a modern UI, tenant management, strong security and management of users in the box, Outsystems is the best choice.

Pros: Speed of development and resources.

Cons: Price, and some limitations, like printer and pdf manipulation.

Recommendations to other buyers: nope.

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.

Pros: - Speed - Quality - Flexibility - Business Processing Tools

Cons: - Rethink software development - Loosing control of the underlying technical things - SQL is managed by the system, so tuning and in depth control is harder

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

Comments: I love using Outsystems. The platform has allowed us to replace all our legacy systems in a matter of months. It has enabled us to catch up to our competitors and even surpass some of the incumbents. Soon we will be one of the industry leaders in our sector from a tech standpoint.

Pros: Outsystems frees up huge capacity on your dev team. You find that for the cost of an average developer you will get a minimum of double the capacity out of your current team.

Cons: It is hard to say. We have been using it for 18 months now and I believe it is the perfect system for your business apps. I think building a high frequency forex trading system in outsystems might be a challenge but that would be about it.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you want to deliver high quality apps faster and more reliably than ever before then this is for you.

Comments: The business landscape has rapidly moved to digital operations. To be successful your business
needs not just to be resilient, but also to embrace a resilient culture. The technology that supports business operations should be agile enough to embrace the continuous changing market landscape and enable business to move at the speed of change. The Outsystems platform reduces development time by up to 75% and accelerate time-to-market by a factor of
three. This provided our organization to cost effectively implement locally developed solutions and other businesses in a significant shortened time. Our main focus is now more on the user interface and interaction, which provides the value expected.

Pros: The speed to develop and making changes to applications developed Development is done logically with very limited hard coding Ease to develop mobile applications and submissions to the app stores Ease to use the native features of devices Built in change management and control of the development and release process with a one-click publish feature Built in security features in the platform Excellent support and community forums Technical aspects very well documented and user friendly The true change and debugging features are invaluable Notification and guidance on dependencies for changes made to modules Cloud hosting option The investment by Outsystems to provide annually new features, functionalities and keeping up to date with technology trends and providing their customers with the tools to easily stay abreast Pre-build modules provided, which eliminates the need to develop commonly used functionality

Cons: Cost in South Africa is expensive due to weak currency and exchange rates Difficult for developers used to hard coding to change their way of thinking to grasp how the platform works. However, this is not a flaw of the platform, but rather a change required in the mindset of traditional developers.

Recommendations to other buyers: The agility and ease of to develop and change system with the Outsystems Platform provides organizations the ability to disrupt and quickly adapt to digital requirements in the market. This product revolutionizes the software development landscape and organizations will have a leading edge in their markets as IT can move faster that the speed of business change and eliminate the legacy trying to keep up with the speed at which business requires change.

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.

Pros: VIsual Modeling, Beautiful Screen Design with default theme, free design with javascript and CSS, SmartPhone and Smart Device support, Cloud/OnPremise support, Auto-implemented performance logs, robustness of application, real time bug detection, auto-versioning of application, no-lockin architechture, multi-language support, etc.

Cons: - Localize problem - many of Japanese developers are not good at English, therefore it is difficult to increase the number of OSP developers easily. So it is expected that all documents and videos are translated to Japanese. - Need cooperation feature with printing format like Excel diagram and PDF. - Need cooperation feature with accounting system. - To get the approval to purchase subscription license in Japanese companies, it will be better there is many license structure not only with AOs and Users but also type of purpose such as "For create Portal Site", "For create internal attendance and leaving system", and so on. - Need product loadmap which describes wchich version of OS will be supported in the future and how many years current version of OS or Java will be supported.

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.

Pros: Well, the motto is not mine, but I surely have to apply it in here: "The IDE of my dreams!" This is certainly a good reason to drive the adoption of the platform. Any developer keened to fulfill the business needs on time will surely understand the advantages of using it for development. The simplicity allied to the legibility of the written code in this IDE, reduce the gap between the business requirements and its materialization into lines of code. For last but not least, the built-in application Lifetime - which is part of the platform - is surely a gem for any DevOps team, providing them a powerful mean to control and to revert any deployment between environments.

Cons: Knowing that the road to perfection always ends up in the horizon, there are definitely two points that should be mentioned: the first concerns the lack of legibility of the application's Javascript and the second one, the lack of built-in Unit Tests. If your application is mainly a client-side application, written in Javascript, the platform may not be the right solution for it. In the other hand, if it's intended to execute all the business logic at the server-side, you should definitely spend some time evaluating it.

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: 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!
