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.
Read full review Pros It allows to focus on the solution instead of seeing technical or implementation limitations as it is multiplatform. Development times are shorter due to its easy implementation and on the same platform manage the database, services and front. Being multiplatform allows us to implement the solution in different technologies. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons Some errors at building time that are difficult to figure out. In the deployment and executions, sometimes you get errors not easy to figure out. Now it's fast, but when you create a large solution, it slows down. Read full review 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 Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

Usability of the tool by a developer who is well trained in the use of GeneXus and with good judgment is excellent. It allows them to know good practices in the generation of code for the database as well as for the backend and the frontend. It allows us to achieve better standardization within the development team and to present solutions and solve complex problems in a very simple way.

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.

Sometimes the support takes a little while, but in the end they always have good answers and the people who answer you are very prepared even for questions outside of GeneXus.

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. Read full review Alternatives Considered
GeneXus has a wider approach in terms of the platform it supports. It has been in the market evolving with technology changes for more than 30 years. It has a better business model for the users, instead of charging for the amount of developments we make or the amount of users we have, it only charges per developer station.

I tried to use
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
and Joomla to Outsystems - I don't think so).
Read full review Return on Investment Being able to work with a multidisciplinary but small team of professionals with a lot of focus on the needs of the business GeneXus to take care especially the permanent evolution of the technology Read full review 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.
