You can keep running your applications because it's on .NET and hosted centrally

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

The value proposition is not clearly visible out of these platforms as yet. Your penetration level will be decided based on if you are able to reach small and medium enterprises. If I compare something like Zoho with OutSystems, Zoho is getting good traction by purely focusing on the small and medium enterprises. These kinds of things could be game-changers in the future. That's where the licensing model becomes a little cryptic. Of course, for enterprise, it makes sense at certain times, and it does not at certain times. The licensing models are one of the things that could be improved there…

A good integration layer and responsive support

What is our primary use case?

We are implementors. We advise our clients on building applications and doing innovation. We have a strong belief that no-coding is the future. Betty Blocks is a Dutch no-code platform provider, with a similar background to Mendix, and OutSystems. In our view, they are very promising because they really go to the no-coding promise, which basically means that a business user could use the platform to build its own applications. Betty Blocks is taking this concept one step further than Mendix and OutSystems.

Pros and Cons

    • "I would like to see full integration with AI."
    • "In many cases, they make choices where flexibility is a little bit degraded, but if you leave everything open and the flexibility is great then the usability is a little bit less."

    What other advice do I have?

    I can recommend this solution to other users. I would rate Betty Blocks an eight out of ten.

    Helpful dashboard, supports offline capabilities for SAP, professional support, and a simple pricing model

    What is our primary use case?

    We use PIllir's EdgeRead Cloud to create new applications, as well as to modernize our SAP customization and make them into mobile-friendly apps. Our environment is a very complex SAP, integrated with several other systems. As part of our S/4HANA migration plans, we evaluated our existing customizations that were created to support the business and we were debating the best way to migrate them. Using PIllir's solution, we've basically converted some of the more heavily used business processes, and we're in the process of implementing the rest of them. In addition, deploying the SAP enhancement… more »

    Pros and Cons

    • "I believe that this is the only product in the market that truly supports offline capabilities in an SAP environment."
    • "The modernizer element should convert a higher percentage of the ABAP code, moving it from approximately 75%, closer to 100%."

    A reliable low-code solution that is flexible and has good support for complex problems

    Pros and Cons

    • "This is a development platform that provides us with a strong database and a low code environment."
    • "The basic reporting system is rather static."

    What other advice do I have?

    It's a very reliable, strong product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

    Pros and Cons

    • "The most valuable feature is the compatibility with other Microsoft components."
    • "Microsoft should combine both the web and the mobile environment with all of the layers of development into one package."

    What other advice do I have?

    Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.
