What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?OutSystems was open to a deal that worked for both sides. It’s not ethical to give more specifics about the pricing and licensing.

What needs improvement?Something that can be improved is that I would like them to be a little more flexible in the area of containerization. They're currently running on Docker on Windows, but I think they should also… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?For a single application, it's too expensive, but that's also not what the OutSystems aims for. Personally I don't think that's the smart approach. Their model is really based on platform and not… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Pricing could be a concern. You have to pay yearly, even after you have completed your development.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We were using traditional development tools like Java/.NET but the overall development time was longer compared to Outsystems. Also, our previous solution had other overheads such as release… more»

What is most valuable?For me, the most valuable feature is the flexibility the tools give us to change as customer requirements change, 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… more»
How has it helped my organization?Before using Outsystems to develop a client's reporting systems, the process would take six months to complete a report. After using Outsystems, and building a custom application, report-building is one click away - and it only took us… more»
What needs improvement?The latest version of the app generation tools could be more user-friendly.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?You should contact OutSystems for more details but my opinion is that it is not for small business budgets.
What other advice do I have?The conventional coding rules don't apply here. You need to have an open mind and let the platform take control from you at times.

What is most valuable?Agile development. I love that you save a lot of time on development and can focus on logic and business requirements.
How has it helped my organization?Development timeframe and deliveries on sprints. Customers can check the progress on a weekly basis and provide adjustments and comments right away.
What needs improvement?Mobile apps need improvement.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?It is still very expensive, so small companies can’t generally afford it. We hope that this changes. Still, the time saving on development and delivery is worth the value.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We did not have a previous solution. We started the department using OutSystems with the goal of creating applications for our internal customers (departments and warehouse customers) to help their… more»
What other advice do I have?Agile development is really worth it. Depending on the size of your department – and requirements – you don’t need a big development team. The same developer can take care of all steps: analysis… more»

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 lose my work.
What other advice do I have?I would give it an eight out of 10 because they need to improve in many areas to make this a great platform.

What do you think of OutSystems?
What is our 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.
How has it helped my organization?With OutSystems, we can build our application faster, and we have releases every two weeks.
What is most valuable?All the features for developing web applications are valuable to me.
What needs 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.
For how long have I used the solution?More than five years.
What other advice do I have?I rate it a 10 out of 10.…

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.
