If you are looking to build a large/enterprise scale application with lots of features i.e. User management, databases, caching, cross-platform then ASP.NET is definitely a way to go. As ASP.NET is developed by Microsoft, so there is no native support for Java or Python or other programming languages. That becomes a barrier sometimes when you are working for a company who's tech stack doesn't really work on Microsoft technologies.

I would recommend Mendix for large organization issues and applications. It is very robust and scalable. It is made to deploy quickly so changes and expansions can be made every step of the way. I would not recommend Mendix for very small projects because the costs of usage would just be too high.

Pros
Microsoft
  • It has a great documentation so new or experienced, you appreciate quick access to quality information
  • It’s very fast, uses less memory than initially expected that has decreased our costs after moving from python
  • It speaks the language of the design patterns really well, so our backend apps are written fast together and connect to frontend systems flawlessly

Cons
Microsoft
  • Net is just like plug and play, we have to focus on a logic of code rest part can be handled by ASP. Net framework.
  • It's a best for only web development.
  • One downside with ASP.NET is its reliance on the .NET framework.

  • Earlier versions lacked in UI/Ux. This is still improving.
  • Since everyone and anyone can create custom add ons (widgets), Mendix could improve their quality checks (but not as rigid as eg Apple).
  • Upgradeability used to be somewhat of an issue. Version 7 looks to be handling this better than previous versions.

Alternatives Considered
Microsoft
We selected ASP.Net because of the market position. It is well known in combination with visual studio and IIS. Also, new colleagues know this and can be involved very quickly. No need to make a lot of investment in education. We do need to teach them the guidelines of our company.

We evaluated 3 to 4 other products before making the choice to go with Mendix. From a maturity perspective it was further ahead than the other options. From the rapid development perspective the tool was light years ahead of others. The ability for developers to learn the tool quickly and still have the flexibility within the platform to develop simple to complex widgets is great. This tool has endless possibilities once you become comfortable with the platform itself

Return on Investment
Microsoft
  • We realized positive returns due to interns and new employees already having experience due to the free academic versions available.
  • Being able to evaluate the express version prior to purchase was helpful.
  • Performance is adequate, but not as responsive as C++. I guess the trade-off is ease of use and being able to find qualified personnel.

  • Request for Mendix projects is constant. When you hire a Mendix consultant, you know (s)he will be busy 100%
  • Scrum has become a religion because of Mendix.
  • It created a sense of community, a culture of sharing, working together and having fun.
