My go-to rapid development tool

What do you like best?

The rapidness of deploying a new app or implementing changes.

What do you dislike?

The web modeler's current functionality is too low key at the moment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to stay up to date with the modeler version!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix is the perfect tool for both agile and devops projects. I've worked with Mendix on both entirely new projects as projects that are on the go for a few years. The fact that it's so easy to just dig in and getting up to speed in very short notice makes Mendix feasible for basically any type of project. Of course it's better to be part of a project from the very first start, as you have an influence on the creation of the data model. But I think one of the biggest advantages of Mendix is that when it's being used in projects, and new developers need to put on, you can bring them up to speed very easily. This is due to the ease of use of both data modelling and microflows and the way you can document your progress. As I'm writing this review I've been working with Mendix for 3,5 years, without any form of IT/technical background. But I'm still astonished by the speed of which I've been able to master the tool and putting it to good use for all projects I have done so far. Conclusion, I would recommend Mendix to basically everyone who would like to build their own app.

Rapid development, rapid deployment, easy maintenance and flexibility out of the box!

What do you like best?

It's relatively easy to build a working application and roll out to production, without any form of coding. Building with modularity in mind makes components highly reusable, including lots of building blocks available through an app store.

What do you dislike?

Not all app store apps are maintained well enough to keep working. Especially for the components built by Mendix itself, this is sometimes disappointing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mendix is most interesting when you can say yes to these 2 questions: 1. Do you have multiple applications on top of core systems? 2. Do your applications use and interact with data?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to build applications for lots of different business processess that depend on data usage and interaction. Especially with data intensive applications, Mendix becomes really useful to replace numerous other applications, often built in Excel or Access. Eliminating user errors and errors in maintainability, while building and deploying way faster than traditional development can achieve.

Mendix accelerates business

What do you like best?

Mendix, unlike other platforms, has a firm focus on accelerating business & development. Where others have a more development orientated focus Menix gives more tools to organize and collaborate. So by adopting this platform, you do not only accelerate development you also allow your business to align with this capability. Next, to the platform, they also provide services to design and execute your digital practice which makes them so much more that just another platform.

What do you dislike?

Mendix always employs cutting-edge technology that asks adaptability of your people. You need an appetite to constantly innovate and improve to keep up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mendix is a cutting-edge low-code platform that can transform your capabilities as an organization. When applied as a platform always make sure you take organizational transformation into account. When you are adopting the technology as a whole, use external/partner support in the start and structuring of your Mendix capability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are one of the leading global Mendix providers and have solved countless business problems. Mainly focused on enterprise optimization and innovation.

Idea -> Mockup -> App

What do you like best?

Mendix is highly flexible and can be used to quickly get prototypes running. The available training videos and step by step tutorials help you to get started. Simple apps can be put together in a relatively short amount of time. When enough background information is provided, the active community is able to either solve problems or at least point towards the right direction. Due to the active community and direct feedback of ideas for future modeler releases, Mendix is able to react to popular developer needs rather quickly.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, the release cycle also comes with the drawback of many versions.

Although the apps provided in the AppStore might be very useful, it can be tedious to get them running without prior knowledge. Especially for starters, a bit more documentation could speed up the setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mendix - The Platform for success!

What do you like best?

I've been working with the Mendix platform for 6 years now, and still find its easy to learn, hard to master developers user interface great. The built-in real-time model checking features are top notch, omnichannel development (develop functionality once, create a desktop/tablet/mobile app in a snap), ease of setting up integrations with other systems are great. The Mendix community, with its active developers and knowledge meetups is fantastic, anyone can learn almost an infinite amount of things in no time.

What do you dislike?

What could be improved upon is Mendix' document generation mechanism. It turns a graphical template into XSL-FO, which outputs PDFs, Docx, etc, but a simple change in the template requires an entire restart of your application. A 'generate preview document' button would be much better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Complete development platform for both Business and Developers. Easy to learn, free to learn and use for the first time. Connects with any database and most other (legacy) systems. Active community with lots of developer support, new ways of creating functionality and a top-grade User Interface (Atlas UI) framework, which makes it easy to create beautiful, user friendly apps on the fly!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating business value for our customers. Helping them work better, faster, more efficient. Putting smiles on the faces of our end users and wowing them with fantastic looking apps, developed in days instead of weeks. Being able to change the application on the fly, stunning customers who have bad experiences with traditional development methods.

Mendix, for fast implementing and conitnuous improvement

What do you like best?

With the easy to understand user interface that you can create with Mendix, you can easily discuss with end-users what they want to see in Mendix. Then the change is rapidly implemented which contributes greatly to the continuous improvement of your apps and your user satisfaction.

What do you dislike?

I'm missing the functionality to add security on a developer level. It would be nice to see developer security roles that lock certain module such that junior developers can be locked out of some modules or end-users can be allowed in the model.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just start with a simple app for your own test purposes. After seeing how easy it is to use, you will be convinced.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A great part our consultancy company works with Mendix and we've used it for several clients. The great power of Mendix is that it can be used for a great variety of business problems. We've used it to create guided questionnaires, but also to create an integration layer between all various kinds of services. So from a business perspective it is an easy to use tool. Also from a developer perspective it is a great tool. The way of modeling is easy to understand and proper documentation while modeling is also possible. There are great learning paths to follow for new developers as well. Projects can grow quite big very soon, however, in Mendix you can easily separate the modelling into modules, but also in microflows that preserve the readability for new developers that join the project after a few years. For myself, I'm working with Mendix for about 1.5 years and I already became an advanced developer. As I mentioned, it is an easy learning modeling tool.
