  • Development is Mendix is generally quick going. The time from whiteboard to deployed application can be a matter of days. The business side loves this and allows for continuous enhancements and modifications.
  • We heavily use the feedback loop built within the application. This is used for our internal QA processes as well as for customers to submit ideas, bugs, etc. This has become a valuable asset to our team.
  • The business logic capabilities are quite comprehensive and allows going back to review "code" relatively painless
  • The documentation and user community could be stronger. With any other (well established) software, a quick Google of a problem will yield hundreds of results, solutions, blogs. That's not always the case with Mendix. This has improved, however, in the few years our organization has been using Mendix.
  • Styling pages, forms, etc., within Mendix is a bit tedious. Without a solid foundation of css, forget about making your app look anything like you would want, aside from the out-of-the-box styling packages/templates Mendix offers.
  • The Helpdesk Support is sub-par. Often times a few days will pass and a "try this... no no, try this. I meant try that..." idea(s) are thrown back. The true understanding and knowledge seems to lie with only a few individuals. Although, this too has improved in the years of using the software.

  • Data management system.
  • Front-end for any back-end.
  • State machines.
  • Flexible implementation and change.
  • Fast development (minimal time-to-market).
  • The platform supports the Scrum process.
  • Better support of the dev team (more detail in the changes made by each developer)
  • More reliable upgrading and merging of branches.
  • For-loops would be nice.
  • More "what you see is what you get" (commits to the DB, refresh of pages, showing and closing pages is usually happening at the end of a transaction, instead of the moment the developer has modeled it to happen).

  • Rapid development; Mendix is low-code and this way offers a faster approach to software development.
  • Easy to learn; Mendix can be learned by doing and is supported by good tutorials and a well supported community of developers.
  • Keeping up with their own position; I believe Mendix does a good job trying to stay on top of the low code platforms.
  • Mendix is becoming better in the mobile domain. There is still some work [needed] but they made great improvements since Mendix 7.
  • Personally I think Mendix is somewhat expensive; I believe their pricing model could be improved for medium-sized enterprises.

  • Mendix is very easy to learn and free to try! The online learning paths are great and range from beginner to advanced. New learning paths are added frequently and the others are regularly maintained.
  • Customising the desktop modeler works fine (placing toolbars where you want etc.) but there is no customizing the theme (yet). For instance, a dark theme would be a great addition!

  • Low-Code development = easier and much faster than coding
  • Mendix comes with a full package out of the box = It is possible to integrate Mendix fully into a SCRUM lifecycle (modeler, sprintr, ATS, APM...)
  • IT and business are able to communicate better via Mendix, especially due to the Web modeler.
  • There are many developers who do not use the integrated sprintr of Mendix for bigger projects. Maybe it's worth finding out why exactly and improve the Mendix sprintr.

  • Business-2-employee web based apps is where the true strength of Mendix is. Medium sized and large businesses that want to digitize some of their processes can do so with amazing development speed. The pricing model also encourages large companies to separate their workflow across multiple apps, keeping the apps small and easily maintainable.
  • Integration with other web services, especially SOAP based, but also other RESTful services, is extremely streamlined. Data structures and web service calls are auto-generated, and sending of files via different protocols is supported without any extra effort.
  • It enables developers and non-developers to quickly and easily build responsive apps.
  • The App Store is critical to meeting customer expectation, because it features hundreds of ready-to-use components. The problem is that some of the components are not-updated regularly by their owners, and since Mendix is not the owner, support for these components is hard to come by.
  • Offline mode has been a thing in Mendix for a few years now, and it has recently been improved to offer conflict management and other perks. However there are still unnecessary limitation to what an offline app is able to do.
  • The Desktop IDE (so called Modeler) is not open for citizen developers. I think Mendix has something to learn from Eclipse and Atom to name a few, where plugins built by citizen developers greatly expand the value of the IDEs.

  • 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.
  • Tool is very rigid, it should be bit more flexible, by giving more control to the developer.
  • As the scale of application increases, the performance decreases.

  • Very flexible, made for bi-modal.
  • Very good for digital business, can deliver application at the speed of business.
  • Platform-as-a-service allows for simplified support, no delays, possibility to go straight to coding.
  • Very good for mobile application development.
  • Start small, get experience, ramp up to complex application.
  • It seems very easy when Mendix people do it. It takes serious practice to achieve the same level. Better to have an expert to help while learning to be on your own.
  • Relatively small company, eager to help but sometimes too stretched.
  • Plan accordingly, implementation takes longer than anticipated especially on first projects.

  • Rapid App Development - from thought/paper to MVP without lengthy development time required.
  • Great innovation over the last few years that I have been using Mendix - meaning there are no worries related to vendor lock-in and Mendix keeps up its potential with every new release.
  • Customer support specifically related to resolving bugs in the platform can take considerable time (in some case more than a year). Communication about priorities leaves room for improvement.
  • My experience with release schedules related to new feature releases often get delayed.

  • It takes less time for the development.
  • Ease in UI design.
  • Security can be provided easily.
  • Changes to the application can be done easily based on the client requirement.
  • We need to customize it for applying additional features by writing our own custom widgets.
  • At times it is bit complex when using the App store widgets.

  • Modeling instead of coding: instead of lines of code, create UML-like schedules and flows that a business can relate to.
  • Real-time model checking: In every step of the process, the platform checks if what you add or edit results in valid code, instantly giving you feedback (and suggestions) when this is not the case.
  • Visual debugging: easily step through models, with list of objects and variables available, to effectively pinpoint issues and correct them as you progress.
  • Better business model for small companies who want a single app.
  • Developer community size (and quality) keeping up with rising (international) Mendix adoption.
  • Improve included Scrum environment (Sprintr) functionality to better manage work over multiple applications.
