Quotes From Members

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

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."

More OutSystems Pros »

"The most valuable features are case management and integration services.""While Pega technical support is okay, it also depends on the issues you need help with and who your contact is with Pega.""Powerful, full-featured business process management with excellent support""The solution's most valuable feature is its quick setup. Nowhere else you can create a good-looking application this quick. It's a fairly robust system.""The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners.""The stability has been good. We haven't had any issues.""It is easy to use, easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to enhance and we can do it as a Cloud. Also it is very user friendly.""The most valuable feature is the situational layer cake."

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 »

"The unit testing needs to improve, as well as the user interface.""What should be included is some UI features and maybe some integrations. This includes documentation on how the UI works.""Lack of stronger cloud support is somewhat inconvenient for users and implementation.""The pricing model needs to be improved. Right now, it's too expensive.""Pega currently is trying to add chatbots to their systems, and it's still quite immature. This part definitely needs to be improved.""The solution would benefit from more integration capabilities.""Sometimes when we are patching some data from the database, we are getting added as a timeout.""Compared to other BPM products, the interface is somewhat complex, so the usability could be improved."

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

More OutSystems Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing fees are based on the number of users.""May be somewhat more expensive than other solutions initially, but should have enhanced return on investment.""The price of this solution, including installation and configuration, is comparable to competing vendors.""The pricing is pretty good, compared to other similar products.""It's a user-based license where, as you scale the numbers of users, the price increases."
