Contentful

Coming from WordPress, Contentful feels like content management as it should be. There's no clutter to get rid of, you can simply start building from scratch, and the end product is perfectly tailored to your or your clients needs.

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.

Pros

Contentful

  • Contentful provides organized, flexible data models with support for a variety of data types and content editors (e.g. WYSIWYGs, form fields, raw text areas).
  • Contentful has great built-in versioning features with history and draft states so it's easy to make updates and revert when needed.
  • Contentful has an intuitive user interface and good support for multiple spaces (which can be helpful for companies that need separate projects for dev/staging/production).

Mendix

  • Using Mendix you can build an application in a week compared to building the same application in Java in 1 month.
  • You can simultaneously build applications for all kinds of devices (Desktop, Mobile and tablets).
  • All in one tool, in Mendix Modeler you can manage databases, webservices, Mendix code , Java code, etc.

Cons

Contentful

  • Preview of changes prior to publishing
  • The ability to use a spell check plug-in when working on content (it doesn't work well with Grammarly)
Nathaly Sierra | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Contentful

Contentful offers a great deal of features for a relatively low price. This is what ended up persuading us to purchase it. We also gathered that this was one of the more well-rated products out there, which was encouraging. It definitely stacks up well against its competitors.
Nathan Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
