Quidgest’s Genio is about 10x more productive, reveals study published in the international ACM Queue magazine
The conclusions are compiled in the scientific article “Low-code Development Productivity,” resulting from a rigorous and independent laboratory exercise in which three platforms – Django, OutSystems, and Genio – were compared in the creation and maintenance of the same software application.
The Genio platform by Quidgest was featured in the latest edition of Queue, the magazine published by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
The highlight was the article “Low-code Development Productivity”, authored by researchers João Varajão (professor and researcher at the University of Minho and ALGORITMI Research Center/LASI), António Trigo (professor at the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra and researcher at ALGORITMI Research Center/LASI/University of Minho), and Miguel Almeida (programmer and team leader at Deloitte Portugal).
The article presents the conclusions of an exercise comparing three platforms in creating and maintaining the same software application: Django (based on manual code, Python, also known as a code-based platform); OutSystems (based on a low amount of manual code, also known as a low-code platform); and Genio (based on a minimum amount of manual code, also known as an extreme low-code or quasi no-code platform).
