Likelihood to Recommend

Kony Development Cloud

Improve performance while the app is in production. The init app development in planning, the testing stage is not an ideal scenario to use KDC yet.

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

Kony Development Cloud

  • Cross-platform mobile development - we used this for developing the app on a native platform (which could be iOS, Android). Kony offers tools that are useful because they decrease costs and increase the speed at which apps are developed. In addition, cross-platform mobile development tools are generally quite simple to use as they are based off of the common languages for scripting, including CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. It has become easy to find resources with the skill set especially because this is based out of common languages.
  • In Kony mobility platform Visualizer makes app development quick and easy. Tons of documentation online.
  • Used Kony to develop an amazing app that serves our customers well. WYSIWYG interface is great for building interfaces quickly. Build and test quickly for many different targets.

Cons

Kony Development Cloud

  • Manuals or instructions need to be streamlined with its high pricing.
  • It's a very intricate platform. It only performs moderately while the app is currently in operation.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Kony Development Cloud

We evaluated variety of platforms like Xamarin, Sencha, PhoneGap. When we were initially evaluating Xamarin, it was not Microsoft and so the releases and features were not very streamlined. Also licensing was a issue with that.Sencha was a very attractive cross mobile platform but was expensive. Just for handful of developers price was high. Ours is big enterprise so licensing costs became huge.PhoneGap is based out of open source Apache Cordova project and is completely free to use, which goes some way to explain its popularity. The enterprise version boasts marketing features via Adobe’s Marketing Cloud, so when it launches it will probably be monetized.Comparing with the features platform has to offer and the price tag attached to it, we narrowed down to using Kony.

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

Return on Investment

Kony Development Cloud

  • Positive on ROI. I'm constantly utilizing Kony since it's a robust tool capable of publishing.
  • It also shares prototype creations of apps in a highly intuitive and customizable environment. It provides a preview of apps in real-time. Collaboration is seamless. Important functionality includes smartphone features (without any written code involved) and accessibility to a browser, maps, and SMS.
  • Trying to understand the user manual can be challenging since there are way too many features available. All of them aren't really necessary for beginners. And they've yet to offer them in a "phased" approach.

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.
