Overall Satisfaction with Mendix

Mendix is being used by our customers to excel in their digital transformation. Mendix creates applications in such a fast way that customers can really make the difference in their industry with it. It can be used for creating business logic and with the complete cloud picture that Mendix offers it really makes a difference!
  • Rapid application development
  • Bridging the gap between IT and Business
  • Overall integrator
  • Mindfulness of performance
  • Scalability in containers
  • Development is thought of as very easy
  • Positive: made our customers make the difference in their market.
  • Positive: in a specific case made less trucks drive for a customer, which means a better environment.
  • Positive: close the gap between IT and business, makes it possible to talk with Business people about an IT solution in a way we both understand.
Although I have never worked with OutSystems, Mendix is seen as a platform that can be used more easily by people that do not have an IT background. Mendix is indeed a platform that makes it possible for people with a business background (and are IT minded) to create beautiful smart applications.
Mendix is suited in scenarios where there is a certain business logic that integrates with strong core systems that do, for example, calculations that need to be presented to users. Mendix is less appropriate as a service bus solution. Although Mendix integrates easily, I would always go for a case with business logic!
