One of our clients is a union, like a labor union, and therefore they're using it to develop an engagement-type app, for member engagement applications.

We have used OutSystems to develop a simple portal in the cloud. This portal is mainly for internal use and not for actual customers or external users. It's generally not for daily usage, so there's only a small team that uses OutSystems as their primary tool in their day-to-day work, but because it's open for any and all kinds of developers, there are probably hundreds of users throughout our organization.

We use OutSystems to analyze disparate applications that are about to become obsolete. As we currently can't afford it, we are still in the testing and evaluating phase.

We don't sell OutSystems as a separate solution. We sell it as a platform. And then you win a lot of solutions on top of it. So that can be a second process, it can be a middle phase, it can be a portal, it can be many things, but it is useful for small apps to complete ERP systems and everything in-between.

In the last months, OutSystems has become our primary development tool. Grendene is a huge producer of footwear and our development in OutSystems is supporting the construction of a large set of applications in these areas: Factory and production-level systems (industrial apps) There are already many applications built to provide information to our offices and for production control of factory processes, simulation, and machine setup. In addition to the already running analytics apps, we are in the process of integrating OutSystems with machines' programmable logic controllers (PLCs). We believe that OutSystems can support factory-level systems that respond quickly. Beginning with the less critical processes, we have already started to build web/mobile applications to be used on the assembly lines and loading docks in the distribution center. Integration and ETL There are many APIs built in OutSystems to provide process automation and information to internal and partner systems. An example is the Melissa branch website that is sustained by a third-party and the product profile is provided by OutSystems APIs. ETL architecture is also developed to synchronize data among some SQL databases and the company’s units. Business and ERP Apps Apps for business and ERPs are a fast-growing set of applications developed in OutSystems, accessed within the ERP portal. New developments are made in OutSystems using the ERP’s database as the information source and connections to many other specialized systems. Corporative Apps In addition to the above, there are many office processes, human resources, and product development/design teams that use OutSystems. Our "Careers" website was built in OutSystems with a dynamic approach that allows the human resource team to create and upload their own pages as a self-service website builder.

Customer track and trace. We get information from SAP which is updated later by carriers (via EDI). The user interface is built in OutSystems.

I use OutSystems to develop web applications. OutSystems is a low-code platform that lets you visually develop your entire application, easily integrate with existing systems, and add your own custom code when you need it.

First and foremost, OutSystems is one of the most robust platforms I've ever tried. Our primary goal was to reduce the overall development time and deliver to the customer faster than anyone else can.

Hello, I work as the Managing Director at a small Consumer Goods company. I want to compare OutSystems and Service Now for developing non-ITSM Apps (e.g., CRM and Customer Care).  Which one would you choose for this purpose and why? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello @Gerry Fitzpatrick, 'Customer Service Management' and 'IT Service Management' applications run on the same ServiceNow platform.  Whilst 'Customer Service' gives you the CRM capability (external facing), ITSM gives you the supporting framework (internal facing). The two work very well together. There is no need for you to invest in building custom apps. However, if you still want to build custom apps then the ServiceNow platform allows you to do that with a very good mobile SDK.  ServiceNow also has an App Store, which is a really good source to see what integrations and applications are available to purchase (some are free). This would help you get value from your investment in ServiceNow quicker. Regards, Farid
