Pros: The Outsystems development environment it very easy to use for anyone with previous development experience as well as being a great place for those with little or no development experience to come up to speed quickly.

Allows fast prototyping whilst keeping good consistency and a polished appearance

Provides a good balance between continual deployment and traditional dev-qa-prod staging

Enforces inter module dependency integrity

Enabled good UI-Business-Data separation whilst still allowing for RAD

Good merging and conflict detection when multiple devs are working within the same module

Projects and applications are rock solid and stable once released

Easy to bring non Outsystems developers up to speed

Realy good certification and training material

Cons: Priced at the high end and not cost effective for small scale development

Shows some signs of instability in the publishing process with very large and complex projects

On the PaaS version you are heavily restricted on access to the infrastructure and cannot get access to simple functions such as SQL replication or database maintenance options.

Lack of skilled developers with pre existing Outsystems knowledge.

Overall: Outsystems was chosen as a platform to rewrite a legacy product developed over 30 years and bring it into the cloud. It has been a really good choice for an organisation that had no web or cloud experience and has helped avoid many of the basic mistakes that could otherwise have been made. Whist there are some limitations on flexibility and price the benefits and speed to market far out way these.

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.

Overall: 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 :)

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.

Overall: 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.

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.

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.

Overall: 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.

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.

Overall: 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 was hired for a project to help convert a license and permit system from a legacy mainframe system (my expertise) to a web based system. The original plan was to use a Common Off-The-Shelf (COTS) product to do this but realized that the legacy solution was so specific to this organization that it would have taken many millions of dollars to customize the system. When looking for alternatives I found Outsystems and was able to quickly put together a prototype and plan that would give them all the capabilities they needed at a reasonable cost and time.

Pros: 1) Learning curve is very quick - after watching the videos I was productive within two weeks. 2) DevOps is built-in - many developers never think about the additional issues and concerns related to deploying fixes and improvements to a working application. The DevOps capabilities of the Outsystems platform removes these concerns. 3) Extensibility is a huge issue with any platform and Outsystems delivers completely in this area. From the Forum components that are available to the ability to write your own extensions in .Net or Java, there is nothing you cannot do with the platform. 4) No lock-in - many enterprise customers are concerned with being committed to a platform 'forever'. The Outsystems no lock-in capability eliminates these concerns.

Cons: 1) The built-in menu system is weak - while it's adequate for simple menus it can't do anything complicated. For example, implementing a Mega Menu type of menu is challenging though anything can be implemented with some work. 2) Outsystems is very receptive to ideas from the community but there's no way to know when/if those ideas will ever get implemented - some of the best ideas have been around for over 5 years with no feedback from Outsystems. A rough roadmap of what will be implemented in the future (with no guarantees) would help me plan work to take advantage of those features. 3) Pricing has been a sore point in the community for quite some time. While a base price is listed on their web site, the base price would rarely cover a full enterprise application. Also, pricing is geared to enterprise clients making it almost impossible to be used for small applications.

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

Overall: Eliminates lot of issues encountered in traditional software development. Helps to build really quality applications. Piece of mind after deploying to production.:D

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've used the Outsystems platform for more than 8 years now. Over the years you can see the quality of the platform and speed of development improving. I use the product to improve business processes and to reduce human interaction during processes by automation of repetitive tasks. The problems that can't be solved by the platform directly can always be solved by using a 3rd party extension that can be integrated into the platform. Outsystems can handle all types of applications from single user to large usergroups (more than 3000 concurrent users accessing the same application). I've not yet seen a competitor of Outsystems that works as good or better and has the same or better support (from the company as well as the community). So for me this is still the platform to work with.

Pros: There is not just one thing I like about the Outsystems Platform. I like the ease -of-use to build applications and the speed of deployment to production, The out-of-the-box Analytics to monitor the performance, the quality of the supportdesk and the active community.

Cons: The only thing that I don't like about the platform is the mystery around new versions. I would love to see a roadmap with a timeline for new functionalities and bugfixes. In relation to this I would also like to see from the Development Team which Ideas that are posted on the forum are put on the backlog and which will never be delivered.

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: OutSystems truly does live up to the promise of 10x development. The cost of the platform is offset completely by freeing up developers to provide vastly more value for every minute spent working on projects. Perhaps not obviously, it also improves the quality of products significantly. Developers get time back to actually work with customers in the target markets and operate on feedback. Divisions and companies can become more agile and keep up with an ever changing world.

Cons: There are some limitations with collaboration amongst teams. Because the platform uses a modeling language which exists in three dimensions, typical version control features like branching, merging, and pull requests do not currently exist. This issue can be overcome by changing the way you organize your teams and how they do work.

Pros: I really like how easy it is to get a prototype up and running in days or even hours/minutes. To be able to put something in your clients hands that they can see and interact with so quickly is very impactful. From there, making changes/improvements in an iterative fashion is very comfortable.

Cons: In multi-tenant applications I've found that scaling can be an issue in regard to views generated for each tenant and those being updated with each release. In a traditional sense the read uncommitted setting on SQL server is something to adjust to and not exactly something I felt comfortable with (but I understand why the platform does it).

Overall: Overall I have enjoyed the time I've spent developing in Outsystems very much. It takes a lot of the tedious mind-numbing work out of the process and lets you focus on creating awesome solutions.

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.

Pros: The speed in which we can deliver web and mobile applications for our customer, and the developer experience, where most repetitive work is taken care of by OutSystems. Also the fact that it is a complete platform with all the DevOps build in is great! Last but not least the OutSystems community is a very active community of professionals, help is always available very promptly why you get stuck.

Cons: Debugging capabilities not (yet) up to par with traditional development tools like Visual Studio, especially the ability to change values on the fly and to alter execution path. Then again visual debugging mobile application in an iPhone or iPad from my Windows developer laptop is amazing!

Overall: The customers for which we deliver projects are from many different industries, we build solutions for field service companies, insurance companies, pension administrators, business consulting companies, etc.

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.

Overall: 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

Comments: I got introduced a little bit more than 2 years ago to the Outsystems Platform. Since that day I fall in love with the drag and drop system. It's so easy to just create a small app in just a couple of minutes. Where using the platform to build applications for around 25+ users to use. With some application used by over 150+ users there getting pretty big!

Pros: It's nice to see that OS is improving each day. The training videos and webinars are a real benefit for the new developers. The easy drag and drop technique is so nice to work with. I don't hate coding but this is just some much better. For around 1.5 year I started with the OS Cloud service that is free available for everyone. OS did a real good job to open a free possibility to let you play around with their software.

Cons: I think the main market for OS are the big companies with 250+ employees. By opening a cloud environment they let you use the application for free. Only if you have a company with for example 1 till 50 employees there is no solution for you. The license is that expansive that it's not possible to pay for small companies and the cloud environment is not for production use. I think this could be improved to also fill the gap in between free and real expensive.

Pros: Visual modelling of data / Integrity checks (nothing is deployed when it breaks something else) / SilkUI (standard UI components so yuo doný have to make them all) / Ease of deployment between environments / Ease of integration with the rest of the world (REST, SOAP, database connections, extension with C#)

Cons: When using the correct architecture (4-layer) and you have a lot of espaces/modules ... you have to refresh a lot modules (rebuild manually) ... this can take some time ... So when you want to test your code you sometimes first have to wait for a rebuild

Overall: I love it. .. I was sceptical at first but it has proven me wrong. It is a way to talk about business value instead of code and deploy this fast to your customers

Pros: The holistic view of an agile project of IT. Easy implementation of Rest and Soap WebServices .

Easy integration with Database, safer and faster production climbs through Lifetime. Migration of new versions without complications in stack C#. Front-End user friendly and updated. Back-end It's all about business knowledge, easy to understand , develop and debug. It requires a smaller IT team meeting the requirements of the Scrum methodology. It has a fairly large community Outsytems components repository and excellent Webinars to learn and consolidate knowledge.

Cons: Stack java with more complicated migrations. It is not an ETL tool for now, but it is possible to implemented.

Comments: I started using OutSystems in September of 2009. At the time, the learning curve was really high... few video tutorials, the community only had a couple of active members who were working for OutSystems, the Forge had a very limited number of components, etc. I gave it a shot on a personal project, and I was hooked. It just WORKED. Since then I've been involved in some of the biggest OutSystems customers (in terms of usage) and biggest projects (in terms of scope & size) out there, and I am still delighted with the product. It does exactly what I need it to do. It makes the easy stuff trivial and the hard stuff easier. It is not a perfect product (really, what is?) but it is the best way to write Web apps that I have tried.

Pros: It is easy to use and easy to learn. The visual logic layout simplifies development and troubleshooting, and allows the business team to participate at a lower level than traditional coding models. The entire team at OutSystems (and especially the support staff) are just really good, smart people who work hard to help their customers and users.

Cons: Some use cases are still hard to implement. The library of UI widgets still needs to grow. A native reporting solution is really needed. Automated test options are weak.

Pros: Speed of Development

Ease of technical implementations

Open Community around Outsystems

Cons: Since I'm an expert Outsystems users, I don't like the initial responses of the support desk. It takes time to get to the right person at the support desk.

Overall: I've been working with Outsystems for the last 12 years and I've built a lot of different systems while working for different employers. From automating business processes to rebuilding complete core systems. I've also built several mobile applications for different user groups.

The overal experience on all projects is that the platform is very stable and improves continuous with every update. Nowadays they split the Studio from the Platform and this results in even faster delivery of new functionality.

I've never had any regret from the switch I made 12 years ago.

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

Overall: 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: Our company (a relatively small energy supplier in the Netherlands, less than 100 employees) has used the OutSystems Platform for over five years to solve almost all of its business needs. Sales, sourcing, CRM, billing and (e-)invoicing, intrabranch communications, the customer portal - it's all developed using the Platform, without any third party software (safe the software the Platform runs on). We work in an agile fashion with short delivery cycles, providing user benefits and company value every two weeks. This shows the versatility of the Platform in providing everything we need for RAD - both for new development and for maintenance.

Pros: Easy, intuitive IDE; easy deployment and maintenance; highly productive; easily scalable; free personal edition in the cloud; ever evolving, embracing new technologies fast, new major versions at least once a year, bugfix releases regularly; excellent support staff; active community.

Cons: Pretty hefty licence fees, not suitable for small businesses. Needs additional licences for the infrastructure it runs on (MSSQL or Oracle DB). Still limited design patterns for UI design (no problem for business software, limiting for creative minds).

Pros: One of the best low-code app development tool out there in the market. One Click deployment & roll back.

Offline data storage, built in templates and seamless integration with iOS & Google play store.

Mature and well designed tool that builds good looking apps & web platform. Significantly reduces the time to market and new features can be rolled out in a few days.

Cons: Enterprise plans aren't cheap only desktop IDE for Windows

Overall: Exceptional, We were successful in our strategy. Thanks to low code environment where we could focus more on user needs and less on architecture and coding discipline.

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.

Overall: 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: 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.

Overall: 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.

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

Pros: Outsystems is a user friendly development platform that adds agility and productivity in a dynamic business environment the demands immediate results to maintain a competitive advantage. Outsystems provides continuous upgrades and features, excellent documentation , and to notch support. Try Outsystems today and be a HERO!

Cons: The challenge in using Outsytems is the learning curve involved to integrate with your current environment when solely using as a front-end. The templates and demonstrations are very well, but documentation and is limited when using connectors or REST services to connect to your existing database. It would be helpful to better document best practices for developing a 4 layer canvas architecture and the use of structures and lists. Not a deal beaker through.

Overall: Very Satisfied with our current experience and support.

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).

Pros: The easiness of building an app. The tool supports you all the way in building apps and if you just do not know what exactly to do then examples and suggestions can be found on the internet and in the community.

Cons: It is up to the developers to realize a readable and maintainable app and not all developers are used to applying discipline all the time.

Overall: Having had a few experiences with OutSystems now, I am positively surprised about how easy it is to set-up and maintain an app. Also about the features of this year released options for mobile and offline apps are really cool to see. It's more about plug and play then development. Of course it is still the developers responsibility to set-up apps in such a way that they are readable and maintainable, but OutSystems gives plenty options for doing that as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not think OutSystems will solve all your problems and make all your problems easier. OutSystems will help you create fast good looking apps, business representatives can join the developer along the way. Do always keep in mind that if an application does complex things, it will also be complex to realize in OutSystems (any development tool/language)

Pros: Integrated development, version control, packaging, deployment and hosting.

Cons: Documentation

Overall: 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: I have been working with Outsystems since 2008, as Consultant I have used the Outsystems platform to delivery several projects for several companies. For sure Outsystems platform keeps its promises: "The OutSystems Agile Platform gives IT the power to build and change custom enterprise applications with the speed, agility and robustness the business demands." Where Outsystems makes the difference is even beyond application development, because supports the entire application lifecycle, making it easy for teams to deploy, manage and operate up to hundreds of different apps.

Pros: - Development speed with Outsystems is outstanding. - Outsystems offers a Public Cloud PaaS that's perfect to evaluate the platform. - Monitoring and Management: Configuration management of running applications and identity management are also handled out-of-the box by OutSystems Platform. All apps are automatically monitored

Cons: - Enterprise licensing can get expensive.

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.

Overall: Faster development
