Overall Satisfaction with Mendix

We have been using the Mendix platform as a basis of our own Service Management application and implemented the application at numerous customer sites. More and more we learned the capabilities of the platform and started using and promoting it for the developement of other customer applications, form small mobile apps to large fully integrated systems.
  • Ease and speed of use.
  • Standard building blocks.
  • Large community of people that contribute to improving the platform and add ons.
  • 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.
It is best suited in a multibrand/platform environment where it needs to support some sort of workflow, where speed of innovation is key.
I wouldn't select the Mendix platform for CMS implementations. I am in doubt for applications that are pretty static, because they don't make use of the full scale of capabilities of the platform.
