"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.""I like the mobile features the most, and there are also various features around the portal we created that I enjoy.""There is literally a ton of stuff it can do. It's very flexible.""It is a stable solution, and the initial setup is straightforward."

Cons
"The documentation could be improved."

More Ionic 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.""Since we first started using OutSystems, they switched their language support from Java and .NET to .NET only, which was a bit of a surprise. Their language support could be better in this sense, although on our resource side it is now a bit more flexible.""The solution is costly.""There are not enough resources on the market."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"For a single application, it's too expensive.""OutSystems is a good solution, but it's not cheap.""I think the pricing for OutSystems is comparable with similar solutions. I would place it somewhere in the middle. We pay for the bundle and don't pay anything extra in terms of licensing and other fees."

Top Answer: The solution is costly. The solution is still very new to me, and it's therefore hard for me to discuss missing features. I'm still learning and discovering.
