Dynamic Tag Management

If you're on the Adobe stack at all, you absolutely need DTM. It will make your life infinitely easier. It's so simple to update your Adobe Analytics code and have version control, and when we implemented Adobe Target, it took literally less than 15 minutes for me to do. I also think it's significantly simpler than Google Tag Manager. I went through all manner of difficulty when implementing tags on that and have not had similar problems on DTM. If you're frequently placing pixels, it's a great tool that will speed their deployment.The only situation in which I think a tag manager is not appropriate is if you have a dev with too much time on their hands. Otherwise, get a TMS and get DTM.

OutSystems

For web based development within organizations, OutSystems is great. When you have the resources to start, don't hesitate! It can be used as a front-end tool, but we also have solutions where it is used to combine all kinds of third party software (using rest/soap/services/etc.) into one dashboard. Another, mostly undervalued, part is the business processing engine, which automates task distribution based on data. Just define your flows, triggers, transport of data and task, and your whole process is supported with great software.When you want to enable your users to move to mobile, no problem. Most of the platform adjusts for the platform and with version 10, it is even easier to generate native apps, although it relies on PhoneGap/Cordova a lot. So lots of native, but the visuals are mainly webpages. But realize, the most used applications on mobile work this way.When you want to build desktop applications, OutSystems will not facilitate you in building and [execution]. This is not a problem, because most of the software today can be used within the browser with an equal user experience and support.

Pros

  • Easy to navigate the interface
  • Dependency on technical team is much less
  • Coding effort will be minimum
Abishek Kumar profile photo
  • I need to develop an application fast and do not have the time to learn to code. OutSystems does the coding part for you and the developer only has to understand the logic. There is no coding.
  • Although I am a beginner I have managed to build and publish my first "exercise" application within two weeks. Even if I did know some coding I would not have been able to manage the construction and logic for the application within the next ten years.
  • I have always been curious to develop applications but never managed to build anything. Getting my hands dirty is exciting. Any newbie can fire away from the word go.
  • Another absolutely fantastic feature is the visual design and structure of the application's logic. I may be uninformed, but I have never seen anything like it.

Cons

  • Single Page Applications: While it's greatly improved over the years, being able to accurately target certain actions on single page applications. In particular, applications built on React are difficult. The addition of a hash change trigger was quite useful, but more is definitely needed.
  • Data Elements: Great new tool, but I need it to be easier to create. I'm not an inherently technical individual, and the main benefit of tag management is reducing the need for technical people.

  • Doing an online course - i.e. no help - took me some time to get the hang of navigating in the development area. Hopefully their course developers will use questions and errors from novices like me to improve the course design where needed.
  • Although the theory videos are well meant I can't wait to work through them all right now. I will come back to them later. Perhaps that's one of my mistakes. I want to get my hands dirty - NOW. I would much prefer it if the theory could be "built into" the practical exercises. But that's just me.
  • Initially I got stuck here and there, but Outsystems ALWAYS managed to assist me to get past a problem. I appreciate that tremendously. The community forum is a great help. Sometimes answers or suggestions to solve errors may take a while because of my time zone.
  • I am a bit concerned that it may be difficult to do a design model of my own. Having to figure out the data types and the detailed logic without the guidance of a designed exercise, but being a beginner I trust OutSystems has something in store for me in the "Intermediate Level".

As it interfaces so well with AMO, we shall be utilizing the DTM for any future client additions.

Alternatives Considered

First of all, it's a free tool. We have selected it because of the features and the speciality of the tool. This tool definitely saves money for the company, as there is not as much dependency on the developers.

TIBCO is an integration tool that is not used to create APIs. Outsystems lacks some integration functionalities that TIBCO provides. TIBCO integrates several systems with different databases more easily.

Return on Investment

  • This tool means we can provide better customer service by delivering on time
  • With a small group of people, we can get the work done accurately without technical support
  • Improvements from an efficiency perspective
Abishek Kumar profile photo
  • Like stated before until today there has been a huge boost delivering apps with little effort, but the benefits are declining if you just look at the financial side of it because of the ever-rising license costs.
  • Apart from that The ROI is about 6 to 12 months in average.
