Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Process culture is making noise inside the organization because now, everybody knows that their time is being monitored.""Since implementing we have had a faster time to solution, with fewer resources needed.""The process models provide self-documenting systems.""We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features.""Appian also has very flexible local integration.""Good workflow engines that bridge the gaps of processes.""Form building capabilities and well thought out process modelling are key points to this product."

More Appian Pros »

"You can go huge - so it is definitely a scalable solution.""One thing I like about OutSystems is that there's no lock-in. You can keep running your applications because it's on .NET and hosted centrally. That's one of the advantages I see there in terms of not having an IT strategy that has a dependency on a particular platform.""We have no complaints surrounding both the scalability and stability of this solution."

Cons
"The documentation needs to be improved.""We would like to have more granular control for interface styling.""My only request is that they decrease the license costs.""The solution could use some more tutorials to help brand new users figure out how to use the product effectively.""They should provide more flexibility so designers can create a more picture perfect device.""Lacks integration with other products.""Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built."

More Appian Cons »

"It needs improvement in the AI capability.""The integration points need to be increased. People have also started to adopt this solution for their regular needs. That means it's not only the big enterprises that are adopting this solution. There are also small and medium enterprises that are adopting it. I've read that where you have large deployments, OutSystems starts to crumble a bit. That is the idea that no customer would know at the beginning and would also not like to hit the wall there. When it is on the client, there are a lot of applications already on low-code, and then suddenly you realize that you want to do some big applications, and you face hurdles. This is the general feedback for all such platforms.""The technical features are good, but the actual commercialization is out of reach."

More OutSystems Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost depends on the number of users, although I recommend taking an unlimited license.""The solution offers a monthly subscription model. That's what we use. I recall it being about $90 a month. They do have different tiers."

"For a single application, it's too expensive.""OutSystems is a good solution, but it's not cheap."
