OutSystems, Architecture & Tetris

OutSystems is great for developing Software fast, when the right database and application architecture is applied OutSystems software is easy to change and maintain. But what happens if your organization did not give architecture the attention it deserves? 

We have seen numerous companies and OutSystems Partners struggle with bloated OutSystems landscapes. The OutSystems customers Speed of change is reduced significantly due to OutSystems Application technical debt created by inexperienced OutSystems Customers. Citizen development is also not helping, put inexperienced citizen developers, under preasure by your demanding business, in a position where speed of delivery is all that matters and your downward spiral towards what we call "Tetris Architecture" begins.
Many IT management teams counter this spiral by adding more resources tou counter the obvious slowing down of application delivery. However, more people without clearly governed architecture will only result in the oposite. To many functions doing the same thing, databases full with redundant tables, developers and development teams inventing the wheel over and over again. The deeper you get into the Tetris Spiral, the more costly OutSystems will be, OutSystems cost of ownership increases dramatically when you are playing Tetris.
Let us help you by reviewing the way you use OutSystems, we can support your teams with practical advice, or even offer prefabrecated modules from our own OutSystems Forge. We will identify and reduce most of your redundant tables. Allthough we love OutSystems sometimes we even have to conclude solutions can Architecturaly be better build in other tools. For example SAP when you are a SAP customer or Flutter when you need high demanding or Customer facing Mobile Apps. Our very experienced Architects all have 20+ years experience.
We guarantee that our advice will reduce the OutSystems Cost of Ownership significantly

B-SYNERGY: OutSystems Forge

Our SAP OutSystem Forge is available to our Customers, hundreds of tested and prefab components ensure that you build on top of your SAP ECC or SAP HANA landscape fast but still well architected and with tested components.

Examples of components in our OutSystems Forge are SAP Security modules (Can be re-used by non OutSystems applications) SAP Material Master, SAP Purchasing Modules, SAP SD Sales and Distribution, SAP WM (Warehousing), SAP SRM, SAP CATS, SAP Service Entry and many many more.
Some basic applications like product scanning for warehousing and shop ordering were build to fit our SAP-Ecommerce platform. These scanner apps were not build in OutSystems but in Flutter to reduce the OutSystems Cost of Ownership (Flutter is Free of Charge). In this case we use OutSystems as a servicebus for mobile apps, but all web applications are still running on OutSystems.

When you think you should Re-Use before buy before build, contact us to see if we allready have in the B-Synergy OutSystems Forge what you need.
