"[T]he IT department started to use OutSystems to create ... a friendly interface between the warehouse and the customer."

Recommendations: 

Time is money, and with OutSystems, your focus is on the business. Any kind of application can be developed—whatever your company needs.

Background

I work in a transport, logistics, and supply-chain company and we use OutSystems to create internal web applications to support our customers. We have standalone applications and also integrations with warehouse management systems such as SAP.

I am a software developer and my responsibilities cover the whole process flow: analysis, development, and support. I have been working with OutSystems for more than seven years.

Experience: 

Customers started to ask for web applications to monitor their products, but changing the warehouse management tools was too expensive and difficult. Because of this, the IT department started to use OutSystems to create these applications, making a friendly interface between the warehouse and the customer.

Also, internal departments such as HR and Finance requested web applications to support their business, migrating from several Excel files to web applications.

The benefits of using OutSystems are the quick development and easy web interface.

Pros: 

OutSystems has straight-forward development. We don’t need to worry about the code, just the business rules.

Cons: 

Prices are still too high. Only big companies can afford it.

"By using Outsystems, we have far exceeded what could be accomplished with traditional development tooling."

Recommendations: 

If you can afford the license, you will not regret the investment.  It is also definitely worth purchasing the Prime - Client Success Program.

Background

We are the largest provider of software and services that exclusively focuses on the public sector vertical in the United States.  We offer a full product suite for operating state, county, and municipal clients.

I am the director of software engineering for a particular division.  I am responsible for soup to nuts delivery of our product offerings.

We leverage Outsystems to create a global community of counties focused on improving at-risk children that have been institutionalized because their home is not a safe and healthy environment.

Experience: 

We needed a tool that provided a straightforward development platform that enabled web and mobile applications. 

We leverage the complete platform provided by Outsystems from development through deployment and ultimately support.

By using Outsystems, we have far exceeded what could be accomplished with traditional development tooling.  We created a very complex application in less than 8 weeks. 

 

 

Pros: 

The speed and ease of development and friction free deployment.

Cons: 

The main source of frustration with Outsystems is the pricing model.

About the Customer
Lance Pierce
Senior Partner, Conigent

"OutSystems is typically thought of as only an enterprise-based solution, but I don’t think that has to be the case."— Senior Partner, Conigent (M3 ERP Consulting)

Recommendations: 

Conigent is a software consultancy that works primarily to implement Infor's M3 enterprise resource planning system on behalf of its clients. Conigent first started working with OutSystems around three years ago to fill in the gaps around M3's app development. Conigent has found OutSystems to be particularly beneficial for apps that need a higher level of user interface than M3 offers. Conigent has found that the chief selling point for OutSystems has been their "no lock-in" offer, which ensures that customers will be able to use the code written in OutSystems in other platforms even if they part ways with OutSystems, this flexibility is not available with similar RAD platforms. Conigent had no complaints to report from their work with OutSystems.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Conigent is an implementation and services company that works with Infor's M3 ERP [enterprise resource planning] system. M3 is a very wide and broad product like SAP or Oracle, but many people find it to be more cost-efficient than those products. While M3 is a great product, it's not perfect, particularly relating to user interface issues. When we come across holes in the solution, we recommend our clients use OutSystems to fill them.

What is your position?

I'm the senior partner at Conigent, in charge of operations.

For how many years has your company worked with OutSystems?

We've been a certified partner with them for about three years now.

Are you familiar with, or does Conigent partner with, any other similar solutions?

No. We've stayed exclusively with OutSystems for application development. The primary reason for that is our ownership group has another software company that uses OutSystems extensively. We definitely utilize their OutSystems engineers and vice versa when there's a need.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge are your clients typically trying to address with OutSystems?

Customizable business apps related to ERP that are managed and deployed across their business easily.

SOLUTION

Is there any insight you can give us into why someone might want to partner with OutSystems compared to some of the other large application development platforms?

OutSystems has an extensive API [application programming interface] library for a variety of ERP systems including M3. This makes it easy to integrate all the great features of those systems into business apps that are customizable and have an intuitive user interface.

What are the types of customers or clients that you think would be the ideal candidates for OutSystems?

In our case, anybody that uses M3. We know where the weak points of M3 are. We know that you can solve them with OutSystems, and so our business approach is to go to those customers and say, "We can use this app development platform [OutSystems] to solve your problem or weaknesses that you have with M3."

In fairness to OutSystems, I think there are a lot similar situations where OutSystems can fill in the holes of a legacy system. It's not just for M3 users.

What type of clients should avoid OutSystems or one of these rapid application development platforms in general?

We really haven't come across any that we think should avoid it. We think they should all use it, regardless of their size. OutSystems is thought of as only an enterprise-based solution typically, but I don't think that has to be the case. We're actually working with OutSystems to do more outreach to small customers and offering them starter packages as a way of showing them that OutSystems is affordable to them as well.

What are the cost factors that clients who are considering working with OutSystems should be aware of when they're making their decisions?

Typically, for our customer base, the cost of OutSystems is going to run them anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000 a year for the platform. As I said, there are ways to defer some of that in year one, but that's what they're going to spend in software cost. For some, that's a lot. However, for companies building many apps, when you compare that cost to what it would take to develop each of the apps natively, it becomes reasonable.

FEATURES

Looking at OutSystems as a whole, are there features or tools in your mind that really make it stand out from other rapid application development platforms?

I can tell you that one of the major selling points for our clients is that OutSystems has a "no lock-in" policy, meaning that if you develop a piece of code with .NET or Java on the OutSystems platform, you can take that code and use it anywhere, even if you leave OutSystems. You don't have to pay the platform cost on an ongoing basis. For many of the other RAD tools like the IBM or Salesforce platforms, this is not the case, which makes people much more amenable to trying OutSystems because they know they're not going to have to stay with it forever.

Are there any features or tools that you've heard are not so great, or just areas of the software upon which can be improved?

None that come to mind.

Do you have any overall recommendations for someone considering working with the RAD platform and, specifically, OutSystems?

It's been an easy sell to our customers that have truly been interested in a better way to develop apps than just doing it themselves natively. Many of them have tried to hire a developer to do a "one-off" app, and that usually goes nowhere because they end up not getting what they want.

OVERVIEW

We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate OutSystems on a scale of one to five, with five being the best. What would you give OutSystems for functionality of the features available?

Four.

What would you give OutSystems for ease of use or ease of implementation into your client's business?

Five. We've never had a problem with integrations. It's one of their strengths.

For support, as in responsiveness of the team or helpfulness of the resources available?

Four.

How likely are you to recommend OutSystems to a colleague or similar business?

Five.

How would you rate your overall satisfaction with OutSystems as a RAD platform?

Four and a half. There's always room for improvement.

About the Customer
Pedro Miguel Girão
Solutions Architect at Do IT Lean

"At the rate the IT and the technology and all the business is changing, everyone needs to understand the benefits of a rapid application development platform like OutSystems. "
— Solutions Architect, Do It Lean (OutSystems' Partner)

Recommendations: 

The user is Do It Lean, a rapid mobile application developer based in Lisbon Portugal, and winner of the OutSystems' partner of the year award in 2015. Do It Lean recommends OutSystems to dynamic businesses that need to build a lot of high-end apps, very quickly. The client highlighted the fact that OutSystems does not require their clients to "lock-in" to the platform, as a strong differentiator between it and other enterprise RAD [rapid application development platforms]. The client's one piece of criticism was on the platform's business process technology feature.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization, and your role and responsibilities there.

Do It Lean is a technology consultancy focused primarily on delivering app development services using the OutSystems platform. Last year we won the Partner of the Year award from OutSystems. I am a Solutions Architect focused on our enterprise clients.

SOLUTION

Can you provide any insight into the market landscape for enterprise app development platforms, including some of the competitors of OutSystems?

One of the main rivals we see for OutSystems is the Mendix platform, which is a Dutch platform. The SalesForce App Cloud, is also a major competitor to OutSystems, and allows for the rapid development of apps and integrations.

One of the advantages of the OutSystems platform, compared to those two is that it has no customer lock-in, which is a big help for companies in today’s ever-evolving IT landscape. OutSystems Platform doesn't use a proprietary runtime engine to run applications, instead all applications rely on standard .NET and Java. The .NET and Java features also allow you to integrate backend systems, CRM’s etc. more easily and quickly.

Regarding Mendix and SalesForce, I’m not as familiar with their specific advantages, but the primary advantage of OutSystems is that it has a no lock-in feature which gives you a lot more flexibility when you’re building apps.

Who is an ideal candidate to use OutSystems? Who is the type of client that should avoid using OutSystems?

I will put it this way, what OutSystems really provides you is the ability to quickly develop apps that are fully integrated with all aspects of your business. If you have a client that has a very dynamic business that has a need to adapt quickly and securely, and quality is important. Then that’s a client that can benefit a lot from OutSystems. OutSystems gives you the power to quickly adapt your business, and your IT structure.

On the other side, if you have clients that are not that dynamic, they have a closed workflow, and don’t need to update their business apps very often, they probably wouldn’t be as good a fit. Because the OutSystems’ licensing and fees process is designed to benefit customers who want to build, maintain, and run a significant number of apps.

Can you provide any insight into the support offerings of OutSystems?

The OutSystems community is very large and active, they even put on a number of world-wide events where a developer, or someone from a business can actually go and talk with a lot of their people.

On the training side, OutSystems has a great certification and online learning module. The developer’s forum is also a great community that is very active and can answer most questions you have. OutSystems’ R&D are very quick to respond to any comment or question that is placed at the community level. Overall their support offerings are very comprehensive, as you would expect.

FEATURES

Were there any software features or tools that really impressed you?
I think the full development cycle is very quick. If I would have to highlight one feature that was the first one that I fell in love with, it would be the one-click quick publish button, which is some of the best engineering I’ve ever seen. You develop part of the code, you add data tables, you add screens, you add business logic, and then all you have to do is click one button, and in a matter of seconds everything will be published. The database generators are phenomenally fast. If you compare with the difficult set-up, configuration files, database connections that you use in other technologies, in OutSytems everything is just so much faster.

Is there anything OutSystems could have improved or done differently?
I think the BPT [business process technology] could be improved. Sometimes mistakes can be made when you’re trying to update those components of the app. That’s the main thing that comes to mind. I think the rest of the platform is really up to the game at the moment. The road map is very complete for next year. I feel great using it.

Are there any recommendations that you would have for a procurement manager or someone who is trying to decide which platform they should go with?

In today’s IT landscape, the one constant is change. It’s such a different environment than it was 10 years ago. At the rate technology and business is changing, everyone needs to understand the benefits of a rapid application development platform like OutSystems. If your company or division needs to develop and deploy a large number of apps quickly and effectively, look no further than OutSystems.

We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the best.

What would you give the software for functionality of the features available?
Four.

What would you give the software for ease of use or ease of implementation into your business?
Four point three.

For support, as in responsiveness of the team or helpfulness of the resources available?
Three point eight.

For overall satisfaction with the platform?
Four point eight.

How likely are you to recommend the software to a colleague or similar business?

Five.

About the Customer
Gonçalo Caeiro
Chairman at Infosistema

"OutSystems is a premium rapid application development platform. OutSystems is not a good fit for small companies, and companies that are looking for a prepackaged approach versus a customizable premium product."
— Cofounder and Chairman, Infosistema (Development Firm)

Recommendations: 

The client is Infosistema, an information technology services integrator based in Portugal. The client has been a certified OutSystems partner since 2004 and has more than 50 developers working on their OutSystems team. The client has found OutSystems highly effective for developing suites of business applications for enterprise clients, who are looking to develop apps quickly, while retaining the flexibility of making changes on the fly. OutSystems is not recommended for small businesses.

BACKGROUND

Can you provide a brief description of your company and the role that you play there?

Infosistema is an IT [information technology] systems integrator group, based in Portugal. We have around 200 employees, and we're a certified OutSystems partner working primarily with enterprise-level clients to help them solve their IT problems.

How does your company use OutSystems?

We've partnered with OutSystems since 2004. We are focus on the banking and insurance sectors, providing systems of engagement for them. We employ OutSystems when these clients are looking for a suite of business apps that can be developed quickly and deployed easily across their business. We currently have around 50 people in the company dedicated to OutSystems work. That will probably grow significantly next year, as our demand for OutSystems development continues to rise.

Do you partner with any other platforms? If so, why did you choose to become a premium partner with OutSystems compared to any others?

We do not partner with another rapid application development platform other than OutSystems. We decided to go with them because we can control the entire life cycle of the app. It increases the efficiency of our DevOps capabilities greatly as it houses the entire life cycle of the app on one platform. OutSystems has also helped to solve problems pertaining to the development of a clean user interface. Before our work with OutSystems, we were spending 70 percent to 80 percent of our time in building UX [user experience]. OutSystems supports both .NET and Java deployment, which is ideal for many of our clients who opt for Java and .NET systems. It makes the integration process much easier.

Can you offer some insights into the overall market opportunity for these types of solutions?

There is a lot of opportunity for deploying rapid application development platforms like OutSystems. For starters, there are a lot of legacy systems out there. Especially in the banking and insurance sectors, you have many companies working with applications that are 20-plus years old. They desperately need to be rebuilt. Also, what's happening a lot, is companies are changing the core of their IT infrastructures, and when that happens, you have to change the applications that go along with it. There is a massive opportunity in updating systems. Second is the long tail effect. The time to market for companies to deliver their apps in order to keep up with competition is shrinking, combined with the fact that they are developing more apps than ever, create a situation where a rapid application development system is crucial to business success.

Could you describe who in your mind would be an ideal client to work with OutSystems?

[The ideal client would be] anyone who is pressured to bring results to business, and whose current IT teams cannot deliver with the traditional waterfall long development cycle. What happens currently is that the business has a vision, but the specifics keep changing along the journey. Your competition and the market as a whole are changing very fast while your resources are limited. People don't have the time to actually think through all the small details and develop in a waterfall method, which requires everything to be thoroughly scoped, and can have disastrous consequences if miscalculations are made.

At Infosistema, we are using OutSystems to develop agile projects that allow for rapid evolvement while minimizing cost. Our concept of a software factory that makes our client's business analysts the architects of the projects. What we understand is that our clients – the business users – don't have the language or the time to provide the correct specs to the software factory. What we are doing internally is building vertical content on those line of business that can talk to the business at the vision level not at detailed IT specifications level. This ensures that we stay on the same page, and that our projects are able to evolve in coordination with our client's needs, as opposed to wasting time and effort.

If that's the ideal candidate who is the type of client that should avoid using OutSystems?

OutSystems is a premium rapid application development platform. OutSystems is not a good fit for small companies. Companies that are looking for a prepackaged approach versus a customizable premium product.

Can you provide any insight on the support offerings of OutSystems?

Their support is phenomenal. But, I'm biased on that one for the simple fact that my headquarters is just a few blocks away from the OutSystems headquarters. We can walk next store to get support from them if we need it. However, my team members are experts in OutSystems, so we don't need much support.

Are there any features or tools of OutSystems that stand out to you as impressive?

OutSystems best feature is how easy it is to move from a data model to a new app. In addition the DevOps, in OutSystems projects are second to none. You don't have to worry about entropy about continuous integration of your apps. With OutSystems, it's incredibly easy.

Any aspects upon which could be improved?

Their debugger could use some work.

Any recommendations for a company that is considering utilizing OutSystems, either on their own or with a partner?

The metaphor I like to use is that OutSystems is like a Ferrari. If you're on the right road and have the right driver, a Ferrari is one of the best vehicles you could use. But, if those things are not in place, you're going to crash, or at least waste a lot of money. The platform is good, but isn't magical.

OVERVIEW

We have a few quick questions and, for each question, we ask you to rate the software on a scale of one to five, with five being the best. What would you give the platform for functionality of the features available?

Five.

What would you give the software for ease of use or ease of integration into your business?

Five.

For support, as in responsiveness of the team or helpfulness of the resources available?

Four.

For overall satisfaction with the platform?

Five.

How likely are you to recommend the software to a colleague or similar business?

"The possibility of integrating all aspects of the development process in one platform is very useful."

Recommendations: 

OutSystems is the best solution in the market at the moment.

Background

Experience: 

The ease and speed of producing solutions are great.

Pros: 

Besides the ease and speed in the design and implementation of solutions, the possibility of integrating all aspects of the development process in one platform is very useful.

Cons: 

Nothing at this point.

"The company selected this solution because of the ease to produce results and maintain the code."

Recommendations: 

First, you should use an Agile methodology. Then, you should take your time and slowly adjust how you work on the platform.

Background

I work for a big financial company located in Lisbon and Porto in Portugal. We have several units around the country. I am currently an intern software engineer and just started my career. My responsibility is to make sure the migration of the home banking is done on time. We are using OutSystems to support apps and websites, such as home banking and other bank applications.

Experience: 

The company selected this solution because of the ease to produce results and maintain the code. We use their Service Studio and Integration Studio platforms. So far, the company has been readjusting the product delivery processes in order to get the best of the platform. It has been implemented successfully so far, and there are many things running on OutSystems in production at this moment.

Pros: 

The fact that it saves me from long code writing is a positive. I am not very fond of the "classic" writing of programs. Flows and orchestrations are for me the best way to focus on results.

Cons: 

Take the example that you have 3 e-spaces – A, B, and C. A depends on B, and B depends on C. Change something on C, and you have to refresh the references on all three, and this takes too much time right now, especially if you have a heavy server.

"Projects developed through OutSystems normally take a third of the time that a standard Java/.NET project would take."

Recommendations: 

Go for it – you will not regret it. The impact will be immediate and, soon after adopting this platform, you will get the desired results.

Background

I work in a medium-sized IT [information technology] consulting company, developing software in Java and, lately, in OutSystems. As an intermediate developer, I participate in projects by helping with sizing tasks, implementation stages, data modeling, and developing and debugging defined requirements and issues.

Truewind built a considerable group of clients by developing fast, clean, and efficient OutSystems-based websites and applications that the clients trust. Due to fast answers to changes to requirements and the flexibility to adapt to several situations – thanks to OutSystems' platform – Truewind has managed to keep its main clients and earn new ones.

Experience: 

Projects developed through OutSystems normally take a third of the time that a standard Java/.NET project would take. That, and the way that people get a grasp on how to use OutSystems platform easily, turned out to be big factors in rapidly creating new projects and involving new people – sometimes even with no academic programming background – in this new type of application development tool.

My company has proficiency with the platform and the tools provided to integrate with other software, databases, or web services. The main benefits are OutSystems' development speed, adaptability, and integration capabilities. 

Pros: 

The main advantages of OutSystems are speedy development, adaptability to changes in requirements, and the capacity to integrate other services within the environment.

Cons: 

Like some other solutions, there is still some room to improve, such as making the process easier to implement development that is more complex.

Recommendations: 

Depending on the project, potential clients need a large pool of OutSystems developers. OutSystems should have a way to train users for free.

Background

I work as an architect for Chevron in the United Kingdom.

Solution

We use OutSystems to develop and deploy software quickly.

Experience: 

OutSystems offers very fast development time. There is a very fast learning curve to understand how OutSystems works. We are still in development phase. We wanted a keep-it-simple-type of software, and the OutSystems engine does everything for you. Disconnected architecture was one thing that was missing, but they have since addressed it.

Pros: 

They offer disconnected architecture and React software.

Cons: 

It would be great if the desktop mode had the same React ability. OutSystems needs to move to an MVC [model-view-control] pattern.

"My company uses the OutSystems software to develop its internal applications."

Recommendations: 

I highly recommend anyone who wants to embrace the IT world to use OutSystems. For businesses, I recommend it as it enables people to deliver much faster and with quality.

Background

I work at a global human resources company, and as it hires lots of people around the world, it needs solutions to help accelerate the process of hiring someone.

I am an OutSystems developer at this company with the responsibility of developing internal applications and demo them to my colleagues and boss.

My company uses the OutSystems software to develop its internal applications. The applications developed so far involve the management of human resources, legal issues, bureaucracy issues, and more.

Experience: 

It helps the company getting to its goals much faster, and it helps the internal users of the company to not have to wait lots of time for the features they asked for the application.

Pros: 

Its visual capability and the ease of understanding of it are pros.

Cons: 

Right now, I don't have complaints about it as I don't have anything that I can compare it to.
