Overall Satisfaction with Mendix

Our company would not exist without Mendix. Mendix makes it possible for me (a consultant that graduated in Strategic Marketing) to build applications for businesses. Every single project we do is with Mendix and it allows me as a ''business person'' to connect with other users from the business and build the best possible application for them without using any parties in between. Business talks to business rather than business talks to IT talks to business.
  • One click deployment
  • Visual representation of data flows and database
  • Easy mobile access
  • 100% cloud based development
  • Expensive licenses so inaccessible for smaller businesses
  • Without mendix our company would not exist
  • Recruiting business professionals rather than IT experts
We got in touch with Mendix due to a project at a former company I and my companion worked. That company went bankrupt and we decided we could start our own software company with Mendix. We never really had the opportunity to compare it to others, because all other software packages require extensive technical expertise, which we did not have. Within a few months, I (as a Marketing Masters graduate) could develop applications for all kinds of purposes, for small and large businesses.
Mendix is great for building application and logic in areas where there is a lot of innovation and uncertainty (or rapidly changing environments). It is very easy to change and adjust things on the fly. It is great to do a ''Demo in a day'' business case, where a business can tell you about their problems and you show them a (mockup) solution within a few hours/days and can continue building from thereon.

Mendix is less suited for large, static trajectories for which there are already available products (WMS systems, CMS systems etc.)
