Overall Satisfaction with Mendix App Platform
The Mendix platform is being used across the entire organization in multiple applications. Generally speaking, it addresses the problem where many smaller projects will not meet the bar for utilizing engineering resources, but yet as a combined group of applications would. It also allows us to very rapidly develop and prototype applications.
- No re-building of plumbing
- Exceptionally quick to develop and deploy
- Built in platform for managing user stories and backlog
- Limited pool of developers/engineers trained on Mendix
- Some things aren't as intuitive to accomplish
- OutSystems Platform
We did not deep dive into the competitors that far, primarily because of the support of the Mendix team. We felt that from a technology standpoint they were all likely close enough. What separated Mendix was the willingness of the people to make sure we succeeded. I believe the Mendix model is not just sell a tool. It is to be a partner, and that's exactly what we were looking for.
