    AWS IoT Core

    End-to-end encryption is an amazing feature because we use IoT to connect to various devices in order to gather data/ stats in real-time. We're able to publish solutions with ease and at a faster rate because of AWS IoT Core. However, its inability to interact with other IoT tools is a big con that I would like them to improve upon.

    Mendix

    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.

    Cons

    AWS IoT Core

    • Ability to integrate with Ethercalc software solution
    • Ability to introduce NFC toolchains and systems which could be utilized in iot modular gateway solutions like drones
    • Ability to reduce latency as the solution scales is very much needed
    • Hybrid solution which can integrate other existing iot solutions into AWS iot core

    Mendix

    • 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.

    After adopting AWS IoT Core in our company it became clear that the whole platform was designed with usability in mind. It not only refers to IoT Core, but also applies to the remaining Amazon services. What we like the most is the fact that every phase from provisioning to maintaining provides great level of usability.

    A 10 would say I have nothing to wish for. A 9 means I haven't seen anything better.This tool really helps you in the whole creation and maintenace cycle, so from requirements to building/modeling to testing to deploying to capturing feedback.

    I give it this rating because the support is always there if we need help, but they aren't always able to help us with our problems and sometimes have to transfer us to another support technician. So overall, the support for AWS IoT is pretty good and I am very satisfied with it.

    Response times are quick and you will get updates regularly about the status of your request. Even with very technical questions they have specialists that can help you with your problems it will give you an answer or help you with a work around.

    Alternatives Considered

    AWS IoT Core

    Azure IoT service provides more or less the same services as compared to AWS IoT core, however the costing of AWS lead us to continued usage of IoT core over Azure IoT services.Also, considering our existing technology stack is on AWS, it was a natural selection for better integration and ease of use.

    Mendix

    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

    Mendix

    • 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.
