  • The applications can be easily maintain for different people reducing the knowledge transfer required in other programming languages

  • It's possible to implement a solution without paying attention to best practices, for instance when independent applications rely on others without a service layer (and API Manager) in between. It's hard to change that later. And even then, development saved a lot of time.
  • Complex business processes were "suddenly" easy to implement, which would have required months of development before we used OutSystems. Again, time saved.
  • Inexperienced, new or external developers can immediately start developing, learning along the way.

  • We've seen a positive impact, as we were able to handle our barges faster. This means the jetties are available earlier, and actually we can handle more barges a day,
  • The split of systems that departments are working in. Partially, they work in OutSystems and for another part in SAP.

This can only bring happiness to those looking for OutSystems, as well as ROI.

  • We're currently in the research of TCO (licenses, development costs).
  • ROI is also based on business cases. We see we can deliver faster and with more flexibility.
  • It is an investment, but by delivering faster and more accurately, you get more value sooner.
