OutSystems Benchmark

OutSystems Benchmark for technical debt and productivity launched by BonCode.

Leading OutSystems customers like Vopak and Plangroep (part of Cohedron) joined a benchmark regarding the implementation of Core Enterprise Systems with the OutSystems Platform.

A collaborative effort

theory meets practice

The independent benchmark was designed together with Professor Joost Visser of Leiden University. In November 2021, Joost Visser chaired the first OutSystems Benchmark meeting. Professor Michel Chaudron of Eindhoven University of Technology has taken over from Joost and now leads the Benchmark.



The OutSystems Benchmark

The objective of this benchmark is to compare how well companies are doing when implementing OutSystems to run core systems. This is of particular importance since full stack application development platforms like OutSystems are being used for business-critical applications. Having high technical debt, low maintainability or low productivity of development teams hampers business agility.
