We performed a comparison between OpenText AppWorks and OutSystems based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Low-Code Development Platforms solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"We really appreciate the process automation and how can you create human tasks as one of your processes."
"OpenText AppWorks has standard features such as system-to-system and human-to-human integrations, but what I find most valuable in the solution is its monitoring feature that tells you more about your processes, how to restart and how to stop each process, etc."
"In terms of the scalability and the handling of complexity, the customers are satisfied, and we also have confidence in the solution to achieve whatever implementations are required."
"One of the most useful features is the code is customizable, we can make it our own."
"AppWorks is a very quick development platform with low-coding capability and strong integration with third-party systems."
"OutSystems is easy to use."
"The visual program of OutSystems is one of the major advantages of this solution."
"The scratch coding is useful. The solution is easy to understand."
"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 technical support is perfect."
"The product is mostly stable."
"The flow editor is the most valuable feature. It is simple and intuitive, and it can guide you step-by-step."
"The most valuable feature of OutSystems is the drag and drop and toolchains in the small AI developing environment. Additionally, the documentation is helpful."
"A room for improvement in OpenText AppWorks is its user interface. It should have mobile compatibility because right now, you still have to make two applications with a user interface for Android and a user interface for iOS, so if OpenText AppWorks can provide one UI that can be used across all devices, that would make the solution better. An additional feature I'd like to see in the next release of OpenText AppWorks is a better UI in terms of the look and feel. Another feature I'd like to see in the next version of the solution is mobile compatibility because, at the moment, you have to make your application mobile-ready or compatible with mobile devices because there's no provision for it in OpenText AppWorks."
"AppWorks could be improved by including BPM simulation."
"The solution needs to continue to enhance the low-coding feature within the product itself."
"There could be some improvements with the low code design part. It could be more customizable and more user friendly."
"The integration could improve."
"The tutorials for the solution should be updated."
"We'd like OutSystems to add stronger workflow-based automation similar to what Appian offers. It needs more workflow modeling and RPA features."
"The product could be improved if there was a shortcut, or predefined, predictable templates provided."
"The prices should be lower. It is a little bit too high for a small market."
"There are not enough resources on the market."
"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."
"OutSystems could improve by being more like GitHub. It would be more helpful for us for division management and version control for our application."
"We had some lagging issues under high data loads, and the solution needed to be customized to improve this."
