"GeneXus: Inference Engine, Generators, Extensibility and more"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

For more than 15 years, from versions 8, 9 onwards, I was always surprised by its inference engine, allowing declaratively to describe in the GeneXus knowledge base what we want at the business level, and its powerful inference engine, is responsible for generating the database structure (always normalized), in the database engine that one wishes, and in the same way the transactional screens and other objects are automatically generated. This ability to infer and generate has been maintained in all its versions, which has allowed us resilience and evolution, abstracting ourselves from the complexities of incorporating and learning new technologies. Another of the capabilities incorporated in the latest versions and that we highlight the most, or like the most, is the extensibility of Genexus, allowing us to create extensions for the GeneXus development IDE, visual controls, modules, GeneXus code generators from development patterns, as the main extension mechanisms.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

Probably its lack of diffusion and the shortage of GeneXus programmers is what is complex for us to handle. Genexus is a great tool that should be studied from high school with great support and a great community, however, today it is difficult to find programmers.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

We currently carry out web and mobile development with great agility, we consider that we are 300% more efficient and faster compared to development with traditional tools. We are recently facing chatbot projects with Genexus, which has allowed us to enter this world, under the same philosophy of declarative development, abstracting ourselves from the complexities involved in knowing all the technologies that exist behind these projects.

"Excelent Tool for developing complex and simple applications"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

It is difficult to decide what I like best, as is a very powerful tool. So I will point out some: The easy way to define database tables Multi platform (1): With the same code you can build a IOS and Android applications. Multi platform (2):With the same code you can build a Net, NetCore Java application. Multi platform(3): With the same code you can build a application using SQLServer, MySQL, ORacle, PostreSQL, etc. Extensibility: You can extend GeneXus, to add particular behaviors. In fact there are many companies that extend GeneXus. I personally recommend K2BTools. Each new version adds amazing functionality that increases the development experience and adds more features to the already developed application. Security: Genexus came with an implementation of security, with authentication and authorization that helps the developer to create secure applications and prevent him from committing mistakes. Support: Amazing and "human" support team, very helpful. Learning curve: very easy to learn, excellent quality training resources.

What do you dislike about GeneXus?

GeneXus evolves a lot each version and upgrade, improving the developing experience and the features that can be achieved. So what I hate more are the older versions of GeneXus.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

Business Applications like ERP systems, CRM.

"Go faster to market with GeneXus"
What do you like best about GeneXus?

GeneXus generates software. It allows you to design, develop, maintain and extend your business application much easier and faster, in a higher quality and more flexibility, from the scratch up to complex applications. It makes the most for you and if it's necessary you can extend it with your own code. You can develop with the same environment software for web and smart devices.

All we wanted to realize, we could do, so I can say there is nothing we dislike.

What problems is GeneXus solving and how is that benefiting you?

We developed in a very short time with a small team a complete business application for bakeries with ERP and administrative functionalities with web and mobile apps. It includes modules for order, delivery, production planning, invoice, stock control, purchase, shop management and controlling, product calculation, statistics, EDI handling and interfaces over web services.
