Business Model: FREE to develop, PAID to run Agile Platform in production.

Paulo Rosado, CEO.

Please consider revising Outsystems business model.

  • Free to develop agile platform application
  • Paid to run agile platform application in production 
Simular to how microsoft business model works...

Microsoft gives away .NET (C#, VB.NET) free to its developers, in order to build a developers community.

Developers build awesome applications, that run on Microsoft windows, and (in most cases) uses Microsoft SQL Server....

Microsoft generates revenue.

Outsystems will follow? New revised model: Free to develop, build a larger developers community, developers bring in paying customers to outsystems. Developers win, business win, outsystems win.

I don't get it.

service-studio = free
community-edition = free

you only have to pay for the product-environment?

Yes Robert, What do you mean?

Are you talking about the SU's limit?

Best Regards
Yes no restriction on software units in development mode. Developer can development software of any size, small or large.

License is then purchase by the business once the product is released in production mode.
