We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's very easy to use. That's one of the advantages for the business, that you don't need to struggle to configure your website and your app service. Microsoft made sure to make it stable and very easy to configure."
"The program is stable and we've had no technical issues so far."
"The product is scalable."
"Overall, all of the features are very good."
"Azure data factory is a good tool."
"It's a platform as a service, so we don't have to manage the infrastructure to hold the websites."
"Debugging using Application Insights is a valuable feature."
"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."
"Sometimes we face problems, but those are technical problems in Microsoft, bugs or something doesn't work as expected, but that's normal."
"I would like to see faster adoption and templates that we can use."
"The solution is quite expensive. If you need more features, you need to pay for them."
"I am new to the intervention and I find it difficult to find my way around the user interface. I have my own learning tool. However, it could be simpler for new users."
"Lacking somewhat in template data flows."
"The solution needs better integration capabilities on the network side."
"Initially, there were some rare instances when the server went down because it was deployed on Linux."
"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."
"Azure doesn't cost as much as other services."
"Less than USD $100 per month."
"We have no complaints about the pricing."
"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."
