"The initial setup is easy."
"The most valuable feature was the visual drag and drop on the components."
"I like the mobile features the most, and there are also various features around the portal we created that I enjoy."
"One thing I like about OutSystems is that there's no lock-in. You can keep running your applications because it's on .NET and hosted centrally. That's one of the advantages I see there in terms of not having an IT strategy that has a dependency on a particular platform."
"It is easy to use."
"The scratch coding is useful. The solution is easy to understand."
"The flow editor is the most valuable feature. It is simple and intuitive, and it can guide you step-by-step."
"We have no complaints surrounding both the scalability and stability of this solution."
"It is a stable solution, and the initial setup is straightforward."
"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."
"There was an attempt to enable front-end development, it did what it intended to do, but the side effects were too bad."
"I would improve the license structure as, for some companies, it may seem a little bit expensive, depending on what they're doing."
"We'd like OutSystems to add stronger workflow-based automation similar to what Appian offers. It needs more workflow modeling and RPA features."
"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."
"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 technical features are good, but the actual commercialization is out of reach."
"There are not enough resources on the market."
"The prices should be lower. It is a little bit too high for a small 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."
