"Appium has easy interaction with mobile."
"It's an open-source solution with a very large community and available documentation."
"Obviously because of automation, it reduces manual testing efforts."
"We have no complaints surrounding both the scalability and stability of this solution."
"There is literally a ton of stuff it can do. It's very flexible."
"It is a stable solution, and the initial setup is straightforward."
"The scalability of OutSystems is very good, it scales automatically very useful for us."
"I like the mobile features the most, and there are also various features around the portal we created that I enjoy."
"The technical support is perfect."
"The architecture of OutSystems is quite simple, and the features are similar to Mendix's. OutSystems has connectors for different enterprise apps and solid reporting capabilities. You can also integrate with any content management platform like SharePoint or Adobe Enterprise Manager, or something like that. You can also create and integrate workflows."
"We used almost all of the features, themes, styling guide, and approach components. They are useful in our applications."
"If it had more facility for configuration it would be a spectacular solution."
"We haven't been able to fully leverage Appium for multiple reasons. I think number one is just that the tests take a long time to run. We have had some issues around just the results themselves and how predictable they are, but those are not issues with Appium directly."
"Stability is an area that needs some improvement."
"The solution is costly."
"We'd like OutSystems to add stronger workflow-based automation similar to what Appian offers. It needs more workflow modeling and RPA features."
"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."
"We had some lagging issues under high data loads, and the solution needed to be customized to improve this."
"OutSystems could improve by being more like GitHub. It would be more helpful for us for division management and version control for our application."
"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."
"In my opinion, the support and the pricing could be better."
"There are not enough resources on the market."
