What is most valuable?

I really like the one-click publish feature in OutSystems. In other development tools/languages, it's not as easy. I also like how easily I can manage all my projects in one place.

How has it helped my organization?

Before OutSystems we used to take six to seven months to build applications. Now, using OutSystems, it just takes two to three months, max. The best part is that one or two developers can create a full application.

What needs improvement?

I think OutSystems needs to improve in many areas. First, sometimes Service Studio becomes really slow and even hangs for long periods. Also, if I have not published my module in some time, and some kind of Service Studio exception occurs, I... more»

What do you think of OutSystems?

Primary Use Case I use OutSystems to develop web applications. OutSystems is a low-code platform that lets you visually develop your entire application, easily integrate with existing systems, and add your own custom code when you need it. • Improvements to My Organization With OutSystems, we can build our application faster, and we have releases every two weeks. • Valuable Features All the features for developing web applications are valuable to me. • Room for Improvement 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. • Use of Solution More than five years. • Other Advice I rate it a 10 out of 10. It is fantastic how fast we can build an...

What is most valuable?

* Great built-in features to get us up and running in no time. * Their out-of-the-box UI is quite good. * Easy deployment * Refactoring with TrueChange is very simple. * Monitoring and logging are built into it.

How has it helped my organization?

* Speed of delivery: We were able to reduce development time by 30%. * Able to automate manual processes in various departments.

What needs improvement?

* Writing custom code still needs to be done via Integration Studio. This might have been added to the IDE. * When shared extensions are updated, all the applications are redeployed. * Mobile apps should have been fully native.
