Overall Satisfaction with Mendix

In general, we apply Mendix when time-to-market for software development is short (for instance during product innovations) and requirements for flexibility are high.

If we develop web applications or mobile applications for consumer end-users, we often use Mendix as a backend that exposes APIs for websites or mobile applications.

Alternatively, when Mendix is used internally in companies, we use the Mendix front-end framework to build a web-based application.
  • Speed of development
  • Deployment options
  • Technical support
  • Memory management
  • Flexibility to improve application performance through query optimization
  • Apply custom monitoring tool (only beta available)
  • Fast development of new features
Mendix is more user-friendly for development, less custom code required.

Appropriate to use as a Swiss army knife as it can build beautiful CRUD (Create Read Update Delete) applications within hours, but don't expect Mendix to perform well in specific niche setups. For instance, high throughput queues.

When application performance (high traffic and/or low latency) becomes very important, consider custom development or apply other services to handle the load, for instance, other AWS services.
