"The technical support is perfect."
"The visual program of OutSystems is one of the major advantages of this solution."
"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."
"The visualizer and API manager are super useful. It's easy to create applications for the agent. Automations and other complex tasks can be hard, but it's mostly straightforward. You can create forms and populate tables."
"It is a single platform that can cater to mobile and web development requirements, making it convenient for businesses looking to transition into the digital space."
"The main benefit lies in its exceptional speed of implementation."
"We can use a single channel to create an interface for iOS, Android, and other channels."
"Its greatest advantage lies in its exceptional security and robustness."
"The initial setup of Temenos Quantum was easy."
"The best thing about Temenos Quantum is how it smoothly connects with Temenos Fabric. This simplifies our quantum application by handling identity, authentication, and security tasks seamlessly, saving us from extra coding."
"The most valuable feature is usability. You can develop components inside it and reuse them in different parts of your application, wherever needed. You can replicate them. There's also a Quantum Fabric on the back end, which provides a middle layer between your database and the third-party systems you need to integrate. It also provides the integration to handle all sorts of exceptions and timeouts on the Fabric. This makes it easy to troubleshoot errors coming from third-party APIs."
"My understanding is that, if you are not using the free version, it is very expensive."
"There should be more integration with engineering applications and tighter integration for user authentication, such as single sign-on, etc. They have some of that. It just could be stronger."
"There is always a layer of custom code required."
"In the beginning, it is difficult to learn and work with."
"One thing I would like to improve is the support system offered by Mendix. It can sometimes take a while to get the help I need when I'm using Mendix."
"I struggle with solutions like Mendix in terms of creating enterprise solutions."
"It is expensive."
"Feature-wise and in terms of technical aspects, Mendix is excellent, but its pricing is steep."
"The tutorials for the solution should be updated."
"In my opinion, the support and the pricing could be better."
"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."
"I have difficulty in using several new features. Some of the product's features are tricky to use as well."
"Currently, in mobile applications, we don't have push notifications."
"The PDD framework can't be used for the behavioral-driven development way of working."
"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 prices should be lower. It is a little bit too high for a small market."
"There are many issues when integrating with native sides when building an Android application of the retail accelerator or an iOS application of the retail actuator. We have to incorporate on the native side of things, which creates a lot of issues. Temenos Quantum is a proprietary product and not open source. There is not much information available on the internet for developers to reference when solving issues. You have to contact the help desk, who will then give you an appointment and work to resolve the issue. In terms of what Temenos can do better, they can make the product more mature so that we do not encounter as many black holes when encountering an issue."
"When developing our application, we also encountered certain issues related to delays and time-consuming builds."
"One area where Temenos Quantum could improve is in the flexibility of widgets and additional libraries."
"There is definitely room for improvement, especially in the areas of AI, AR, and DR for mobile and web applications"
"Temenos Quantum is not quite stable yet."
"Using the API manager can be complicated when you're dealing with multiple teams, projects, and APIs. Quantum doesn't have user-based access, so I can't restrict parts of the project to specific users."
"It would be highly beneficial if future iterations of Temenos could incorporate support for QR-based payment methods, as it would enhance the platform's capabilities and align it more closely with modern payment trends"
"The security and the interface technology could be better in Temenos Quantum. Additionally, a module that can display all the activities that have been done in the system would be helpful."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the Mendix solution.
PeerSpot user Somnath G., Solution Architect and LowCode Practice Lead at a tech services company, says, "What I found most valuable in Mendix is that it's very much suitable for mobile apps such as native Android or IOS supported mobile apps. The multiple features of the platform are very, very attractive and very popular. Mendix has technical features such as microflows and nanoflows. You can also access data models in the platform. These are the features that are very, very strong in Mendix. I got my hands dirty on other low-code platforms, but I have not seen such strong features in them compared to the microflows, nanoflows, and data model access that are in Mendix, including creating and integration. The platform has out-of-the-box adapters or out-of-the-box-connectors that you can integrate with different interface applications such as SAP, Salesforce, Oracle EBS, etc."
Sameer V., Consulting Manager at Deloitte, mentions, “Their native mobile capability is very good. In general, the way they launch the product has been great. Their product launching strategy is far better than any other platform. I work in OutSystems and Mendix. They tend to be more on the legacy side, OutSystems. With this solution, the product launching strategy is very, very agile. I really like when they roll out their updates, which are very, very frequent.”
Robert B., Solutions Architect at a computer software company, explains, The solution is just very quick and responsive. The initial setup is very straightforward, and those implementing the product do not have to be very technologically advanced in order to manage the process.”
