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

Pros
Refactoring with TrueChange is very simple.Their out-of-the-box UI is quite good.Speed of delivery: We were able to reduce development time by 30%.For me, the most valuable feature is the flexibility the tools give us to change any customer requirements on the fly, when we are in a meeting. I also like how easy it is to deploy the code between environments and how easy it is to integrate OutSystems with other systems.The most valuable feature is Agile development. I love that you save a lot of time on development and can focus on logic and business requirements.The most important features of this tool are its visual modeling capabilities and drag and drop functionality. You can see what you are coding which makes it easy to understand and maintain. They have also created a big revolution in digital transformation by introducing native mobile app development under the same IDE.Integrations with external systems with SOAP and REST are easy to implement off-the-shelf, but a developer can always implement specific libraries for other integrations.Our previous solution had other overheads such as release management, version management, code management, monitoring, etc., all of which are built-in with OutSystems.

Cons
When shared extensions are updated, all the applications are redeployed.Mobile apps should have been fully native.Writing custom code still needs to be done via Integration Studio. This might have been added to the IDE.The latest version of the app generation tools could be more user-friendly.Mobile apps need improvement.There are many tutorials available but they are very basic and good for learning the platform. To develop an enterprise-grade application, advanced tutorials need to be developed to help IT professionals design/develop high-quality/performance applications.The integration Studio could be improved. It needs a tool in which we could develop C# code and then integrate into OutSystems. The application could have a better UI.OutSystems does not provide any native reporting resources. All reports must be created with other tools or as a webpage.

Pricing and Cost Advice
You should contact OutSystems for more details but my opinion is that it is not for small business budgets.It is still very expensive, so small companies can’t generally afford it... Still, the time saving on development and delivery is worth the value.Pricing could be a concern. You have to pay yearly, even after you have completed your development.OutSystems was open to a deal that worked for both sides.
