Overall Satisfaction with Mendix

We use Mendix across our organization to help customers in their business needs. With the use of Mendix it is possible to make (web) applications in a short time window. Mendix is a low coding platform, a term that is very popular these days. It is possible for anyone, even if they don't have an IT-background, to make apps for your customers. Of course, for the hardcore developers, there are challenges. The good thing about Mendix is that you don't have to keep your customers waiting for a year of development. In a matter of days, you can show your app to your customers!
  • Low code, easy to use platform for anyone who wants to build apps.
  • Active community with people sharing Mendix functionalities, posting new ideas and sharing cool widgets that you can integrate with your Mendix application.
  • Quickly deliver applications to continue your business.
  • Integration with a lot of different services.
  • A lot of functionalities are not integrated with Mendix, the custom build is the only option (with exception of widgets and modules from the app store).
  • There are no easy incremental updates of the Mendix platform. Upgrading to newer versions can go wrong on your build application.
  • Licensing costs can be steep for smaller businesses.
Mendix is well suited for translating new business ideas to applications that you can integrate into your business. Building applications is a short time is a huge cost-saver for customers. You don't need high-priced developers to build applications that suit your business needs. Mendix is less appropriate for building native apps on iOS and Android. You need different software for that matter.
