Pros
"It is complete and relevant to the job at hand."

More Apple Xcode Pros →

"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.""I like the mobile features the most, and there are also various features around the portal we created that I enjoy.""The scalability of OutSystems is very good, it scales automatically very useful for us.""The flow editor is the most valuable feature. It is simple and intuitive, and it can guide you step-by-step.""It is easy to use.""The scratch coding is useful. The solution is easy to understand.""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."

Cons
"There should be additional documentation on App Store deployment. In terms of features, they're pretty much on top of where they need to go. I've been happy with its progress so far. As things evolve, they need to evolve to match that need."

"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.""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.""We had some lagging issues under high data loads, and the solution needed to be customized to improve this.""One of the biggest areas for improvement is that every time an existing data element is modified, it creates a new data element. It doesn't really modify that particular data element. So, a user has to follow an extra step of removing the existing data element and bringing in the new and modified data element that is being added, which sort of goes into negative productivity.""The prices should be lower. It is a little bit too high for a small market.""It's difficult to do the component version control. I would like them to add more studying materials.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "OutSystems is a good solution, but it's not cheap."
  • "I think the pricing for OutSystems is comparable with similar solutions. I would place it somewhere in the middle. We pay for the bundle and don't pay anything extra in terms of licensing and other fees."
  • "The subscription is billed on a yearly basis."
  • "I believe they are very strict with their pricing platforms, or the pricing policies, and it changes."
  • "For one developer to use, the cost is around $5,000."
  • "It's not cheap. It's pretty expensive."
  • "The price is okay. OutSystems isn't expensive. It's a mid-range solution."
