The Review
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.

Recommendations

If they improve the licensing costs, I would definitely recommend it.

Background

Wayfield is a trading company that works mostly with the Angola market. We have around 300 people in my company, but we have a strong presence in Angola as well. My role is as an OutSystems developer and architect. We use OutSystems in our company mostly to integrate with SAP [systems, applications, and products], making it easier for the end-user to do their job.

Experience

My company needed software that could be accessed from anywhere easily, such as web-based, and a company with a fast pace in developing apps. OutSystems was a great choice because it covers both requirements.

We use all the features provided by OutSystems, except the mobile components. We plan to move forward with those types of devices.

Pros

It would be the ease of use, rapid development, and ability to deploy quickly.

Cons

Maybe the licensing costs could be lower because of its usage by many startups.

Recommendations

I would recommend Outsystems for any business which wants to have a solution that can be quickly developed, is easy to upgrade and easy to maintain.

Background

I develop Outsystems apps as a junior level developer. We use Outsystems to develop both web and mobile apps.

Experience

Outsystems platform allows us to develop solutions much faster than any other technology I've used before. We are using Outsystems 9 with Silk UI.

Pros

It's very intuitive and you don't need to code everything from scratch. It's a visual editor so it enables us to see what we're doing in a quick way.

Recommendations

The biggest changes I would recommend are that they improve the service center monitoring and debugging tool.

Background

I create OutSystems solutions for the human resources industry.

Experience

We had the need for a rapid software solution for our in-house needs and for the needs of our clients. Regarding the features we use, I'm not sure, but I would say almost all of them. Our company clients are very satisfied with the speed of development of solutions.

Pros

The tool is very easy to use. It allows you to build an app for clients very quickly that is ready for presentation to them.

Cons

It can be very difficult to debug. Plus, the service center monitoring can be a little like trying to read Chinese most of the time.

Go for it. Once you start using it, you won't want to go back to writing endless code.

Background

I work for a software development firm in Lisbon, Portugal. We have about 40 employees. I am a software developer and handle the development of enterprise web and mobile applications.

Experience

We needed a RAD [rapid application development] platform to cut down on development cost and time. OutSystems handled development of the web and mobile applications, and integration with other systems and external databases. It has gone well beyond our expectations. Thanks to OutSystems, we were able to dramatically reduce development time and cost, greatly benefiting our customers.

Pros

The positive are how easy it is to use and how fast it allows us to build even the most complex applications.

Cons

They need to offer better documentation, including more examples of how to use certain functionalities.
