Microsoft
Well suited: for interfaces between machines data and applications. Made as a service. For web applications in factories where you don't have access to thick clients due to the environment. not well suited: quick measurements and fast data transitions between different applications. When time dependency is needed, then you better can choose other solutions.

OutSystems
Well suited for internal exposure of business processes (invoicing, API layer to other systems, customer maintenance etc), whether a UI is required or not. Not so well suited for full fledged web design. An OutSystems application must serve one particular business need, if gets too much functionalities and responsibilities it tends to get chaotic and complex.

Pros
Microsoft
  • It has a great documentation so new or experienced, you appreciate quick access to quality information
  • It’s very fast, uses less memory than initially expected that has decreased our costs after moving from python
  • It speaks the language of the design patterns really well, so our backend apps are written fast together and connect to frontend systems flawlessly

OutSystems
  • Developing end user interfaces with ease and speed with a modern look and feel.
  • First class low code development to reduce time to market with visual programming
  • Their technical support team is fast and responsive. We've yet to have any issues they could not resolve.

Cons
Microsoft
  • Net is just like plug and play, we have to focus on a logic of code rest part can be handled by ASP. Net framework.
  • It's a best for only web development.
  • One downside with ASP.NET is its reliance on the .NET framework.

  • Price – The licensing model of OutSystems is very expensive and not suitable for small scale developments. This is offset by the time to develop and stability for larger scale developments
  • Flexibility on PaaS version – The PaaS hosted version of OutSystems limits your flexibility to access the front end and backend database systems which can significantly restrict your options on high data volume developments or where anything requiring slightly out of the ordinary access is required
  • Same price for PaaS and self-hosted system. Licensing model dictates that you pay the same price even when you host the system on your own hardware which effectively means you pay more to manage the infrastructure yourself

We are very happy with OutSystems and our developers deliver good work. OutSystems lets us build new software on a regulare (2 weekly) basis, which is highly flexible and adjustable. Even without very much experience, our developers manage to build usefull software, which is working a lot better than our previous (legacy) software.

I am really happy using OutSystems in my work. It gives me the opportunity to create good working software without having had very much IT-experience before. It also made me more interested in the background of IT and learning different languages.

The tech support is very reachable. Usually by [email] from but also by phone if needed. We had some difficulties at the start with understanding "what our machine was doing" under high performance load. After some good sessions understanding our needs they delivered good solutions for our problems we had in the beginning.

In a large company, patiently and consistently work the behind the scenes politics with business and IT partners across the firm.
This is transformational - you will need a solid set of key business partners to lock arms together to move forward.

We choose ASP.NET because our core business is working with the SAP HANA database using SAP Business One. We can develop state-of-the-art applications with Razor and Visual Studio 2022 fast and with excellent application performance response. Working SAP Hana with JAVA could be more challenging because it has fewer developers communities, and it could be harder to find a solution for a question.

I tried to use WordPress with some success. Also looked at Joomla. But when I saw OutSystems I knew I had been wasting my time there. It takes you longer to get going with OutSystems - but even I as a novice realized immediately that Outsystems is simply in another league. Outsystems is powerful. (Can you compare WordPress and Joomla to Outsystems - I don't think so).

Return on Investment
Microsoft
  • We realized positive returns due to interns and new employees already having experience due to the free academic versions available.
  • Being able to evaluate the express version prior to purchase was helpful.
  • Performance is adequate, but not as responsive as C++. I guess the trade-off is ease of use and being able to find qualified personnel.

  • The ease of use of the OutSystems development process has been the biggest ROI for us. We have developed our Framework product and maintained/enhanced it with only 4 workers.
  • OutSystems has enhanced their product very significantly over the last 4 years. They have gone from a simple to use tool to a very simple to use sophisticated tool that covers the standard mainframe-based computing apps and the apps used on handheld mobile devices all using the same basic set of development tools.
