"It is easy to use."
"The scratch coding is useful. The solution is easy to understand."
"The scalability of OutSystems is very good, it scales automatically very useful for us."
"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."
"The flow editor is the most valuable feature. It is simple and intuitive, and it can guide you step-by-step."
"I like the mobile features the most, and there are also various features around the portal we created that I enjoy."
"We used almost all of the features, themes, styling guide, and approach components. They are useful in our applications."
"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."
"It is low-code. We are able to go in and create apps quickly. It is very helpful for the size of our company. We're a mid-size company, and at this moment, we don't need anything externally. We don't have to go out and consult a consulting firm to build something from the ground up. So, the ease of that and being able to get development quickly up and running has been good for us."
"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."
"In my opinion, the support and the pricing could be better."
"The technical features are good, but the actual commercialization is out of reach."
"OutSystems could improve by being more like GitHub. It would be more helpful for us for division management and version control for our application."
"It's difficult to do the component version control. I would like them to add more studying materials."
"We had some lagging issues under high data loads, and the solution needed to be customized to improve this."
"We'd like OutSystems to add stronger workflow-based automation similar to what Appian offers. It needs more workflow modeling and RPA features."
"There are not enough resources on the market."
"Its UI needs improvement. They should improve it and make it a little bit more modern. We should also be able to have more real-time information that connects with other software platforms. It has an open API, but it doesn't always connect with some of the other platforms that we would like to utilize. These are probably two of the biggest things for us, and hopefully, they will keep ensuring that in the future, they continually build QuickBase to be a little bit more efficient in that regard."
