We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"This solution has provided for Rapid deployment of data collection tools, replacing spreadsheets with near real-time data."
"QuickBase is an excellent product and it is very easy to get support."
"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 mobile app has improved, but it still needs work."
"I would like to see the reporting enhanced because some of them are not easy to generate."
"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."
"You have to negotiate the price because it varies based on the number of users you have, as well as how much cloud storage space you need."
