About OutSystems

OutSystems enables you to to develop and deploy your apps in the cloud, on-premises or in a hybrid model. Develop once, for all devices. Integrate all your existing systems and applications. Reuse the skills and resources you have.

OutSystems offers a visual development environment to rapidly develop and change mobile and web applications. Developers can assemble all components necessary to completely define mobile and web apps, without writing any low-level code. You'll be able to model User Interfaces, Business Logic, Business Processes, Databases, Integration Components, Web Services, Security Rules and Scheduling activities.

For mobile-specific apps OutSystems allows you to model complex offline behavior, model business logic that runs on-device, and easily integrate with device-native capabilities like GPS, camera, email, calendar, etc.

You'll also find an integration SDK to quickly create custom components to integrate external applications and databases. It includes wizards to automate the integration of databases, library APIs and popular third party applications such as SAP. It works with Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse to assist in the creation of custom integration adapters. Integration adapters are published with 1-click and then reused many times in different web business applications.

OutSystems provides version control and configuration management of all mobile and web applications, services, integration adapters and other application resources. Operation teams can monitor and audit running applications to detect and isolate performance and quality issues, and to manage highly scalable, 24x7 application server farms.

OutSystems also provides all the functionality needed to manage the entire application portfolio centrally, stage interdependent apps and components, and streamline DevOps processes. It simplifies staging across environments by performing a complete dependency analysis across environments and deploying applications and all their dependencies with one click. It also allows you to define your IT team's access to applications and their components across all environments.

Despite the pricing category, OutSystems get the job done in a oustanding way, It's really a fun and intuitive way to get your heads into programming.

Pros

What make us choose OutSystems was it's simplicity and the speed up, when you are developing new projects. The ability to use the same base code for both mobile platforms was a big thumbs up too. We also contacted a indenpendent code review company to check the generated code base and they liked what they saw, it's generated with good pratices and putting the performance in the right place.

Cons

Definatelly it's cost. It's a very expansive platform and it's only suited for big companies. They offer a free option but it's just for test purposes.

Pros

You can build basic sw in little time

SoC is easy to implement

Easy to monitor issues

Cons

Search functionality isn't user friendly

It "crashes" too many times, specially when detaching eSpace tabs(originating another instance of outsystems)

Has the number of components grow inside, lets say an action, the "messier" looks

It does not require a large learning curve. Developing applications quickly and easily is very enjoyable with OutSystems.

Pros

The OutSystems platform is a state-of-the-art product developed to accelerate development for our core applications as well as provide flow flexibility, allowing developers to implement and develop as business and technology trends evolve. In addition, it does not need a large learning curve and is very simple to use. I like that they provide quick solutions to the business needs of users without technical knowledge. He helps us with the various projects we have in the Company, which is the most important part of my job. It perfectly supports project flow and helps us create flawless projects. With the arrival of Outsystems, the sales team can make demos faster and reach more customers. A very lucrative product.Another favorite feature of the product is that I love the whole ecosystem created by Outsystems ... so having a design system in the UX part, easy drag and drop components, easy development flows and a perfect system to interpret and follow them. .

Cons

There is nothing I can criticize for not having a bad experience.I am very satisfied with this product.

Pros

Time to deploy, ease of adaptation, customer focus from 3rd party vendor, user interface and user experience

Cons

It's not cheap but if you consider that time to develop also adds a cost, then it's a fair deal
