"Honest trailer - Mendix"

What do you like best?

Integration with other web services, especially SOAP based, but also other RESTful services, is extremely streamlined. Data structures and web service calls are auto-generated, and sending of files via different protocols is supported without any extra effort.

What do you dislike?

The App Store is critical to meeting customer expectation, because it features hundreds of ready-to-use components. The problem is that some of the components are not-updated regularly by their owners, and since Mendix is not the owner, support for these components is hard to come by.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are attempting to break new grounds and conquer emerging markets, Mendix gives you the ability to quickly test out your ideas before making a serious commitment. If the requirements are uncertain and they are constantly changing, Mendix empowers developers to react quickly and stay agile during the development process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company uses Mendix to empower customers to digitilize their business model and innovate in the digital realm by providing new, unique and competitive features. So far I have participated in three projects for three separate customers. For all of them, we have been able to deliver beautiful and functioning apps in record times, reducing the time from idea to production ready application to just a few months.

"Best low code development platform there is"

What do you like best?

The high level of quality in everything Mendix does is what I like best. I have been working for over a year with Mendix now and the number of high quality additions to the platform in this period is staggering. The modeler works really intuitive, it looks good and is very complete. Peolple at Mendix are very active in supporting their developer community with learning paths, activities, webinars etc. as well.

What do you dislike?

The modeler is free to download and use, but your local application will be terminated after 2 - 4 hours. This means that if you are a professional developer, you'll have to rerun your app(s) several times a day. Annoying when you are debugging.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the best low code platform

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been working in 3 projects with Mendix now and in all 3 we have created great apps that added a lot of value to the business.

"Fast learning process and easy to deploy apps."

What do you like best?

That it allows me to deploy applications. As a person with no IT background i did not believe that it was that easy to deploy and make applications. However, Mendix have shown me that it's possible! For simple things a person does not need a lot of experience, which allow a lot people to learn it and allows people also be more creative as you do not need to work with syntax errors and try to solve them the whole time!

What do you dislike?

Just a small dislike, but not that critical. I currently like the things I can do with Mendix. The only small thing that I dislike it that with the layout it sometimes makes it difficult to ensure that certain tabs or actions buttons are the right place. Even with placing them or with containers there might be a solution for this. However, I am not certain as I am not that experienced with Mendix.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it and do the online courses. It will allow you to see the power of Mendix!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It give people with no knowledge of IT the opporunity to make and deploy applications. With Mendix it is possible to shorten the learning curve what is needed to make applications. Mendix is RAD tool that I would recommend people i know! Also we are working with in Agile enviroment and we need to move faster. Mendix allows us to do this.

What Low-Code Development Platforms solution do you use?

"Faster and better applications with Mendix"

What do you like best?

The rapid development of applications and the freedom to add code yourself when needed. Most of the functionality can be build with the default Mendix functionality. For the complex functionality one ore more Java blocks can be added. It's well integrated with Eclipse, so you can easy debug the Java code. With the custom styling it's possible to give the application an unique look.

Also the possibility to work close together with the business makes it attractive to choise for Mendix.

The whole community of Mendix. They organise Meetups to let exports and developers share there knowledge.

What do you dislike?

Not all the widget are update frequently to the latest Modeler version.

Creating an application in multiple languages is possible but your not triggerd/forced to translate labels after you edit an existing application. So sometimes you forget to add the translated labels.

The pricing model can be an obstacle for smaller companies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Combine the power of Business and IT on the Mendix platform to improve your applications.

Does the requirements for the application change often? The rapid development makes it possible to realize all those changes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because of the rapid development Mendix is very usefull for a POC or prototype. Beside that Business and IT are working close together because it's a low code platform.

We are solving the challenges below with Mendix:

- Integrations with multiple other applications

- Creating very quick a POC

- Increase the customer engagement during the devolopment

"My go-to rapid development tool"

What do you like best?

The rapidness of deploying a new app or implementing changes.

What do you dislike?

The web modeler's current functionality is too low key at the moment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to stay up to date with the modeler version!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix is the perfect tool for both agile and devops projects. I've worked with Mendix on both entirely new projects as projects that are on the go for a few years. The fact that it's so easy to just dig in and getting up to speed in very short notice makes Mendix feasible for basically any type of project. Of course it's better to be part of a project from the very first start, as you have an influence on the creation of the data model. But I think one of the biggest advantages of Mendix is that when it's being used in projects, and new developers need to put on, you can bring them up to speed very easily. This is due to the ease of use of both data modelling and microflows and the way you can document your progress. As I'm writing this review I've been working with Mendix for 3,5 years, without any form of IT/technical background. But I'm still astonished by the speed of which I've been able to master the tool and putting it to good use for all projects I have done so far. Conclusion, I would recommend Mendix to basically everyone who would like to build their own app.

"A great platform to integrate systems and quickly deploy relevant solutions"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I am able to develop an application in a visual manner, where all the business logic is easily applied. The use of microflows really appeals to me because it keeps the flow of processes clear and concise.

What do you dislike?

I would like to be able to have more control over custom styling, without having to resort to the custom.css file. The webmodeller is gaining features rapidly, so I'm waiting patiently for this.

Another point of improvement is the internal database viewer. When creating a sandbox application, and tracking behaviour, I think the built-in database vieuwer is too limited to be useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it is important to not only stress the benifits of how quickly Mendix can help build apps, but also give attention to the benefits of the advantages of leaving the SOR intact (no customizations) and use Mendix as a engagement layer to meet the custom demands.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently I am working on a project where data stored in SAP is published to Mendix through a custom API, to display information that is not available in a standard SAP view. This application will be used on mobile phones, so employees can quickly gain insight in their data, anytime, anywhere.

"Rapid development, rapid deployment, easy maintenance and flexibility out of the box!"

What do you like best?

It's relatively easy to build a working application and roll out to production, without any form of coding. Building with modularity in mind makes components highly reusable, including lots of building blocks available through an app store.

What do you dislike?

Not all app store apps are maintained well enough to keep working. Especially for the components built by Mendix itself, this is sometimes disappointing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mendix is most interesting when you can say yes to these 2 questions: 1. Do you have multiple applications on top of core systems? 2. Do your applications use and interact with data?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to build applications for lots of different business processess that depend on data usage and interaction. Especially with data intensive applications, Mendix becomes really useful to replace numerous other applications, often built in Excel or Access. Eliminating user errors and errors in maintainability, while building and deploying way faster than traditional development can achieve.

"With Mendix I've Switched Gears For My IT Capabilities"

What do you like best?

Superfast learning curve. Very intuitive both the web and desktop modeller.

Fast feedbackloop with business stakeholders and users. What you ask this morning is in this afternoons test version and deployed in the live environment tomorrow.

Super smooth cloud deployment.

What do you dislike?

Mendix ease of use advantage is also a disadvantage.

The ease of use support putting more and more functionality in the same app could in the end lead to functionalities being duplicated unnecessarily.

Recommendations to others considering the product

After years in IT Management and Architecting I decided to reboot my career as a Mendix engineer. I go to work smiling every day since i switched. Mendix has proven to be easy to understand and use.

I love the very short feedback loops with our product owners and project sponsors.

The feedback we get from our customers is also very inspiring. They are impressed by the short time we need to come up with prototype of even working solutions already during project intake.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Customer portal for B2B customer allowing to open up the processes to the customers:

=> Order processing andowrkflow

=> Quote processing and workflow

=> logistics workflow

=> On demand document generation

=> Integration with backend SapB1 integration

=> Integration with Enterprise Content Managemnt

Responding to innovative business needs.

Removing the bloody handwork from the devops cycle.

Work around a growing scarcity in technical IT staff.

Very short time to market for new business ideas.

Very agile in responding to business needs.

"Mendix accelerates business"

What do you like best?

Mendix, unlike other platforms, has a firm focus on accelerating business & development. Where others have a more development orientated focus Menix gives more tools to organize and collaborate. So by adopting this platform, you do not only accelerate development you also allow your business to align with this capability. Next, to the platform, they also provide services to design and execute your digital practice which makes them so much more that just another platform.

What do you dislike?

Mendix always employs cutting-edge technology that asks adaptability of your people. You need an appetite to constantly innovate and improve to keep up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mendix is a cutting-edge low-code platform that can transform your capabilities as an organization. When applied as a platform always make sure you take organizational transformation into account. When you are adopting the technology as a whole, use external/partner support in the start and structuring of your Mendix capability.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are one of the leading global Mendix providers and have solved countless business problems. Mainly focused on enterprise optimization and innovation.

"The best and fastest way on changing and facilitating your business within an ever changing market"

What do you like best?

The strengh of Mendix lies in the simple handeling and easy to grasp/learn logic and ui.

The ease with which you can translate business idea's and implement these within a maner of hours or days. This really improves the interaction between IT and the rest of the business.

What do you dislike?

When handeling large datasets Mendix can be quite slow and you should resort to java or sql.

As a lot of users are used to fancy iOS or Andriod apps, users often expect a lot or have wild ideas about how ui should work. Since you are bound to the framework of Mendix your options are limited to the framework. That being said, there are a lot of options to customize your layout/ui.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While Mendix is a tool for a lot of business related issues it does not solve everything. Think carefully where you want to use Mendix for and if Mendix is the best solution for that problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For my clients I have solved a lot of different problems in various industries.

"Idea -> Mockup -> App"

What do you like best?

Mendix is highly flexible and can be used to quickly get prototypes running. The available training videos and step by step tutorials help you to get started. Simple apps can be put together in a relatively short amount of time. When enough background information is provided, the active community is able to either solve problems or at least point towards the right direction. Due to the active community and direct feedback of ideas for future modeler releases, Mendix is able to react to popular developer needs rather quickly.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, the release cycle also comes with the drawback of many versions.

Although the apps provided in the AppStore might be very useful, it can be tedious to get them running without prior knowledge. Especially for starters, a bit more documentation could speed up the setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have a look at the tutorials on gettingstarted.mendixcloud.com

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix can solve a great variety of business problems. Customization is key - Mendix provides you with the tools you need. Mendix is supported and steadily developed and improved.

"Powerful development tool"

What do you like best?

I like the speed of the whole system. With Mendix, you are able to deliver prototypes in a very short time.

I also like the integration of webservices like soap and rest.

Data modeling is well structured in Mendix.

Last but not least, I like the online tutorials, webinars, forum,...

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, Ui development is not as intuitive as it seems at first sight. Especially if you are a backend developer that is not very familiar with frontend web development. Sometimes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just give it a try. The online tutorial is a great starting point.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix is great to build a custom application that just fits the business needs. Instead of paying for standard software and changing your business to work with the software you build your application to work with/for your business. Also, the software is growing with your business and can be constantly changing to always fit your requirements. The users can (and should be) involved in the development process.

"Mendix - The Platform for success!"

What do you like best?

I've been working with the Mendix platform for 6 years now, and still find its easy to learn, hard to master developers user interface great. The built-in real-time model checking features are top notch, omnichannel development (develop functionality once, create a desktop/tablet/mobile app in a snap), ease of setting up integrations with other systems are great. The Mendix community, with its active developers and knowledge meetups is fantastic, anyone can learn almost an infinite amount of things in no time.

What do you dislike?

What could be improved upon is Mendix' document generation mechanism. It turns a graphical template into XSL-FO, which outputs PDFs, Docx, etc, but a simple change in the template requires an entire restart of your application. A 'generate preview document' button would be much better.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Complete development platform for both Business and Developers. Easy to learn, free to learn and use for the first time. Connects with any database and most other (legacy) systems. Active community with lots of developer support, new ways of creating functionality and a top-grade User Interface (Atlas UI) framework, which makes it easy to create beautiful, user friendly apps on the fly!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating business value for our customers. Helping them work better, faster, more efficient. Putting smiles on the faces of our end users and wowing them with fantastic looking apps, developed in days instead of weeks. Being able to change the application on the fly, stunning customers who have bad experiences with traditional development methods.

"Mendix, for fast implementing and conitnuous improvement"

What do you like best?

With the easy to understand user interface that you can create with Mendix, you can easily discuss with end-users what they want to see in Mendix. Then the change is rapidly implemented which contributes greatly to the continuous improvement of your apps and your user satisfaction.

What do you dislike?

I'm missing the functionality to add security on a developer level. It would be nice to see developer security roles that lock certain module such that junior developers can be locked out of some modules or end-users can be allowed in the model.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just start with a simple app for your own test purposes. After seeing how easy it is to use, you will be convinced.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A great part our consultancy company works with Mendix and we've used it for several clients. The great power of Mendix is that it can be used for a great variety of business problems. We've used it to create guided questionnaires, but also to create an integration layer between all various kinds of services. So from a business perspective it is an easy to use tool. Also from a developer perspective it is a great tool. The way of modeling is easy to understand and proper documentation while modeling is also possible. There are great learning paths to follow for new developers as well. Projects can grow quite big very soon, however, in Mendix you can easily separate the modelling into modules, but also in microflows that preserve the readability for new developers that join the project after a few years. For myself, I'm working with Mendix for about 1.5 years and I already became an advanced developer. As I mentioned, it is an easy learning modeling tool.

"Great platform for developing applications"

What do you like best?

After following the Rapid Developer course I was quickly able to build a rather complex (proof of concept) application for a transport company. Mendix enables you to develop applications in a fast, iterative and intuitive way with almost no coding knowledge. In the Mendix App Store you can find a lot of building blocks that you can use in your application; you don't need to 'reinvent the wheel'.

Mendix has an active community forum that you can use to ask questions might you get stuck with a problem.

What do you dislike?

Deploying to the cloud can take some time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Follow the free online Rapid Developer course and just start building your first application!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to rebuild and functionally extend an application in just three weeks which had been built in the traditional way (html, css) and which took three months to build.

"Flexible and Fast way to produce business apps"

What do you like best?

I like who easy the app is to use. Everything available within 1 or 2 clicks. It takes all the boring aspects of developing away and leaves only the joy of creativity. It comes with the Sprintr where you use for collaborations (user stories, etc) which is also integrated to the Modeler. Great free online training too.

What do you dislike?

I don't see the amount of information on the changes of every commit. Merging branches doesn't always go smooth.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's ideal if your core business is not IT and you just want a flexible way to produce business applications by leaving most of the worries (cloud, infra, development) to Mendix and its partners and you stay on the role of the Product Owner.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Huge acceleration of the time-to-market for simple business apps and way better maintainability.

"Great app development platform that minimises the gap between business and IT"

What do you like best?

I love the speed at which you can develop when using the Mendix platform. Because of the visual way of building logic in Mendix, it is very easy to collaborate with non-IT related roles from the business. This results in applications that really fit with the business and the future users of the application.What I also like is that back-end developement and styling go hand-in-hand when using the Mendix platform. Of course everyone has their own expertise, but front-end and back-end are no longer two worlds apart. Mendix has great tooling to set up a basic theme for your application based on your company colours in just a few minutes. So even when you're not a styling expert, your apps will look good.

What do you dislike?

Mendix has a lot of 'out-of-the-box' functionality, which in itself is great because in general increases the velocity of your app development. What I don't like about it is that the functionality is sometimes not flexible enough and in those situations it takes quite a lot of time to find a work-around.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it and you'll be convinced!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix can solve a great variety of business problems. It is great at intergrating with existing applications and software. WIth Mendix I've built several flexible shells on top of existing application landscapes, for example; I built a sels-service-portal for a logistics company on top of their SAP environment. Mendix is also great for building apps that are very specific for your business. The general software environments are often not flexibel enough to please the needs of the business. To start building apps from scratch in Java or .NET for example often comes with too much maintenance for a company. For these kind of business cases I've also used Mendix to do the job.

"Quick and easy to learn"

What do you like best?

The easy way to create apps and model the logic behind these apps.

Also Mendix releases often updates with new features and better solutions for our needs.

The possibility of linking development to user stories in their Sprinter application.

What do you dislike?

That the quality of new Mendix modelers is not tested correct.

The lack of a great user selectable UI/UX.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is best suited in a environment where it needs to support some sort of workflow, where speed of innovation is key.

Use the sprinter environment for added user stories.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Order picking and service application including warehousing

Callcentre automation

"Efficient platform for rapid creation of applications"

What do you like best?

Ease of use; Capability and flexibility; Possibility of embedding custom code; Many components available out-of-the-box; Available trainings which will set you up working in a few days;

What do you dislike?

No Windows mobile native apps; Requires customizations when dealing with more complex scenarios/requirements;

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ideal application which will enable you to provide a customer with an initial application for further enhancements. Perfect platform for working with PoCs after which you decide whether to go with the platform or build a custom software. Time invested in creation of the PoC applications is short (lets you create a working application with limited functionality within days and not weeks).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Possibility of providing a quick solution to requirements handed over by customers. Ability to provide a working solution (with a lot of working features) within days and not weeks.

"Mendix review "

What do you like best?

The relative speed and ease of creating applications without extensive programming knowledge is a great plus. It's easy to learn but hard to master. It's a great tool for easy integrations to other systems and ideal for agile/devops development. It's great for developing re usable components and thus delivering business value asap.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of different versions that require a lot of keeping up with the latest releases. The sprinter is not ideal for bigger projects as it doesn't have a lot of functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

don't forget best practices!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Creating applications in no-time with Mendix"

What do you like best?

With Mendix, the time it takes to develop an application is very small. This way, the feedback-loop for the product is very small, which gives great value for the customer.

What do you dislike?

There are limitations to the platform, which sometimes cannot be easily worked-around.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mendix is a perfect starting point for beginning developers. You don't need a lot of development experience to be succesfull with this tool. On the other hand, it helps to have an object-oriented mindset to succeed in this field.

"Perfect platform for adding business value and creating robust Apps"

What do you like best?

I love the visual way of modeling. I don't have a technical background from my education. If you understand the business and do have affinity with modeling the Mendix platform will suit you like a glove. It is awesome to have the support of the community.

What do you dislike?

Updating from really old versions, going from a old version 5 to the latest version 7 is a pain. The mendix documentation however will be able to help and there is always the community to support you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Perfect RAD platform for people with common sense and a business logic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've created multiple apps, last app we've created made a decrease in manual labor from 32 hours to 30 minutes, the app was created in just 3 weeks and the manual labor of 32 hours had a backlog of +2000 items left.

The first two weeks we had no end-user involved, we could start creating an app and after this the end-user got involved. The whole data structure had to be rebuild (Difference of expectations between IT and Business...). The mendix platform is very agile and we've reconstructed everything in a couple of days. IT & business were surprise by the speed and efficiency.

"From business engineer to Mendix developer"

What do you like best?

The thing I like about Mendix is that it's a full package for a low-code platform in which you can quickly develop your own applications. What I mean with full package is that it delivers not only a great platform, but also a large community where you can ask around about your challenges and great learning modules to understand the basics and advanced thing about Mendix.

What do you dislike?

There aren't much things that I dislike about the platfrom. If I should name one then it's the maintenance of the widgets that you can find in the app store. When you upgrade the platform to the newest version, some widgets aren't compatible any more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving a varity of business problemens with Mendix. For instance a often built in Excel or Access sheets. We are eliminating user errors and errors in maintainability, while building and deploying faster than traditional development can achieve.

"Winning the UWV/ SVB hackathon 2017 with Mendix"

What do you like best?

The platform has given us the power to win the UWV/ SVB of oktober 2017 with Mendix. Within 24 hours we wore able to build the 1st solution. With its great standard features, and powerful extension capabilities in the form of building custom widgets we have made a single page app that was connected to Microsoft Face recognition, Google Speech to text and many more external services.

What do you dislike?

You need to be a fullstack programmer to truly capture and also understands its power. Its not for the business user, but for the professional who wants to develop at lightning speed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start your project with a Mendix professional right from the start. Do not think that a non technical person can start a complex application. Train your internal staff up to the level of advanced Mendix expert before starting a big endeavor.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix allowed us to make an MVP (a Proof of Concept) in less then 24 hours. That is architectural designed with security first in mind. Capable to be used in a high demanding and high available IT environment.

"Mendix platform"

What do you like best?

Mendix offers a great platform, not only for developing, but also hosting, deploying and maintaining your applications, facilitating the entire development cycle of an application.

Applications can be made really fast, and with the help of the Mendix Modeler, almost without any coding. Changes in your app can be done very easily, because Mendix handles everything in the background for you. Great when a customer wants a change, and you can do it while the customer is sitting next to you and can immediately see the changes.

Integrations are also really using. Using Mendix, you can consume or publish SOAP or Rest services very easily.

Using the Sprintr platform, deploying your app in the Mendix cloud is very easy and user friendly.

What do you dislike?

Mendix offers a lot of standard tools/widget to use in your applications, which make developing your apps really fast, but when you want something different from the standard, you have to reside to custom coding. It is possible within the platform, but may require some more time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Development speed, being able to quickly respond to changes.

For customers, we have used Mendix to create custom apps with integrations quickly, where standard off the shelf products do not suffice.

"Once you get it..."

What do you like best?

Once you get the hang of it you can quickly build applications and keep them working while further developing them. Everything is moldable to how you want it.

What do you dislike?

Not as easy to understand as I'd hoped - coming from a totally different background I still have to learn a lot. I can see why it's called low code but it's definitely different from no code!

Extra skills such as Java, JavaScript and CSS are more than recommended to optimally use Mendix.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Mendix is a solution for big companies I'd say. Make sure you get seniors on board to guide your juniors!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick solutions for in-house applications.

"Fast and efficient development"

What do you like best?

I like being able to easily reuse code and be able to work together with business to quickly develop applications that do exactly what the business needs.

What do you dislike?

Mendix does not support a dark theme, yet :-). Mendix has some trouble with handeling and generating reports and or documents. This however can be solved with integrations or custom widgets / modules.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating business value for different customers. Being able to quickly make changes and push them to the cloud with only a few buttons. Mendix allows us to develop software in a fraction of the time that it would take for traditional methods to develop the same.

"RAD done great"

What do you like best?

The fact that I can sit down with an end user and create their perfect application together with them in a single sit.

What do you dislike?

The license system is focused on medium to big firms, whereas the pricing model often is unfavorable for a small firm only needing a single small application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When in doubt let yourself be amazed in what can be realised in a 2 or 3 week proof-of-concept

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There is no limit to the problems that can be addressed and solved, from client facing to back-end, with no limit on industry. Benefits are realised for all parties involved, both at the client and customer side.

"Honest trailer - Mendix"

What do you like best?

Integration with other web services, especially SOAP based, but also other RESTful services, is extremely streamlined. Data structures and web service calls are auto-generated, and sending of files via different protocols is supported without any extra effort.

What do you dislike?

The App Store is critical to meeting customer expectation, because it features hundreds of ready-to-use components. The problem is that some of the components are not-updated regularly by their owners, and since Mendix is not the owner, support for these components is hard to come by.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are attempting to break new grounds and conquer emerging markets, Mendix gives you the ability to quickly test out your ideas before making a serious commitment. If the requirements are uncertain and they are constantly changing, Mendix empowers developers to react quickly and stay agile during the development process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company uses Mendix to empower customers to digitilize their business model and innovate in the digital realm by providing new, unique and competitive features. So far I have participated in three projects for three separate customers. For all of them, we have been able to deliver beautiful and functioning apps in record times, reducing the time from idea to production ready application to just a few months.

"A fast way to innovate business app"

What do you like best?

With Mendix it is possible to to quickly innovate business app. With a quick time to market and model-driven development apps can be developed much quicker than the old fashioned way.

What do you dislike?

The web modeler can be a bit more intuitive to get more out of it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently we work on a business app where administration and invoicing is being automated. Automated ways of gathering data, and automated ways of checking if all necessary documents are received saves time for employees, which frankly are to expensive to do this type of work.

"The mendix platform has been a major upgrade for our organization"

What do you like best?

We first started looking into Mendix as a way for us to upgrade our legacy applications within our organization. We vetted out 3 different vendor platforms and decided to go with Mendix. We have found the tool to be very easy to use and has allowed us to increase our time to market greatly. Currently we have software development cycles of 2-3 years. With the mendix platform we were able to get our first product out within a year and we are onto our next 2 products and they should be completed in less than a year. Mendix has always been very good at working with our organization whether it has been for troubleshooting issues or enhancements to the platform. As it currently stands our first product has increased our production by 40% within the first 6 months and we expect the same type of growth with our future releases

What do you dislike?

The biggest issue we had when first using the platform was tied primarily around some of the UI and services components. After discussions with the Mendix team, and some of their own enhancements, we have found the platform continues to improve and provide us the flexibility and speed we look for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to go through the introduction training course. I have dealt with several developers and they are concerned when first seeing the development platform since it is not what they are used to. Once they have some understanding from using the intro course (free online) they are able to better use the platform to its full capability. Also be sure to leverage their developer forum. There are many individuals on their that are experienced and willing to assist

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our biggest issue was providing a flexible UI for our end users, a platform to allow the engineers to quickly develop and a way to upgrade our legacy applications. Currently we have seen a decrease of almost 50% in development time and an increase of 40% in productivity from our end users

"Easy to start, very quickly becomes a powerful tool"

What do you like best?

Mendix really excels at getting you started, but allows you to really dive in shortly thereafter, even for someone without a development background. It's also nice to not have to worry about setting up a database, and the built-in debugging does a great job of leading you to the root cause, and telling you what must be fixed.

The community has also proven to be a huge boon, and answers to most issues are only a quick forum search or question away.

What do you dislike?

OOTB, Mendix lacks some functionality, such as email integration and authentication, but this is mitigated by leveraging their great and growing appstore, and some custom Java.

The default UI/UX themes are workable, but a bit stale. Delivering a truly amazing experience requires some knowledge of CSS/SASS styling.

As well, you must carefully evaluate the value in updating projects to newer versions of the Modeler, as some functionality may break when doing so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Getting started is free, so you have nothing to lose in trying it out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are mostly replacing legacy business applications with Mendix-built solutions. The speed at which solutions can be delivered has proven to be a huge benefit, as well as the ease and speed of iterating on feedback from the business side of the development relationship.

"Great platform for speeding things up"

What do you like best?

Easy to work with modelling tool and very comprehensive webbased cloud platform.

Great compatibility with technologies (on prem, Mendix cloud, your own cloud of choice, docker).

Very fast to get to a minimum viable product.

What do you dislike?

Mobile and offline still have it's limitations.

UI editor is a bit complex sometimes, and making the apps look really really sleek is a bit challenging, although the out of the box styling options are also very decent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many different problems, from extracting and processing data from backends to a nice front-end, making workflows and processes easier, transorming and analyzing data

"Great RAD tool and easy to learn!"

What do you like best?

Mendix is very easy to learn and free to try! The online learning paths are great and range from beginner to advanced. New learning paths are added frequently and the others are regularly maintained.

What do you dislike?

Customising the desktop modeler works fine (placing toolbars where you want etc) but there is no customizing the theme (yet). For instance a dark theme would be a great addition!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can develop applications really quick (couple of days) and our customers are always amazed by the speed with which we can show them new features in the application.

"Great platform to quickly fill in business needs"

What do you like best?

The fact that it is an all-in-one solution to develop, deploy and monitor business applications. Low code development is the future and Mendix is een A+ representative of this philosophy.

Recently there have been a lot of exciting releases which shows that Mendix does not stand still and devlopes very quickly!

What do you dislike?

I dsilike the fact that in recent releases there is an emphasis on the webmodeler.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Quick solutions. Easy to get the business involved in the development process because of the visual way of modeling. Much faster then java development for example.

"Mendix @ Capgemini"

What do you like best?

the fact that it is a rapid development platform. For someone like me, whose always done design but could never realize it and had to pass it on to developers, this platform enables me to use my experience as a designer when I build awesome apps.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I do have issues with backwards compatibility with for example widgets and new modeler versions. It sometimes results in forced upgrades or broken functionality and was not anticipated.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rapid development with more time to consult with the client and demo in a short period of time.

"Rapid Development Tool that suits my needs"

What do you like best?

The flexibility and fastness of the developing a new or existing app. The easy re-usability of created logic. The fast deployment to the cloud. The version control with multiple developers on the same project. I also like quickness in response when I have an issue with the software.

What do you dislike?

I don't use the web-modeler, why should I bother with an incomplete version of the software?

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems that I am solving are mostly related to workflow processes. Most of my applications are replacements for old forms on either printed paper, word or excel.

"Extremely productive and positive "

What do you like best?

Firstly the culture of the community around the platform. Secondly Mendix's innovative approach to the entire SDLC means that business requirements are developed with the least amount of waist in the process from the capturing of requirements within the functional system all the way to the one click cloud deploys. Lastly the pace of innovation the platform enables.

What do you dislike?

The moddler that is used to develop the solution requires windows, while a web version is on the way it's not clear if that version will support the work flow logic capturing Microflows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are in the early stages of your business were you will need to release functionality to the market and then potentially pivot then there is no other technology that will enable that better than Mendix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many problems. From the business business perspective the biggest problem we are solving is the capability of reducing time to market. Functionally we're solving workflow and automation problems as well as data integration and consolidation problems.

"This platform allows you to accelerate your business."

What do you like best?

The visual IDE for developing apps and the automatic validation of the model. This allows you to develop fast without technical errors, and communicate easily with customers.

What do you dislike?

Some features are not their or not mature yet, then customization is needed. The app store helps, although some modules are not well documented.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are accelerating businesses by creating innovative apps. Because development is faster then traditional coding projects the iteration of creating business value is much faster.

"This really is rapid development"

What do you like best?

From first setting up your project until having a running web application in the mendix cloud is a matter of hours.

What do you dislike?

The 'no-coding' marketing bubble by Mendix suggesting you don't need developers anymore.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time to understand how Mendix works. This is a different way of working but it's worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We deliver integrated web-applications as extenesion to our customers existing CRM or ERP systems. With Mendix we can react much faster to changing requirements.

"Coding made easier"

What do you like best?

What I like best is the way coding was made easier with the help of the GUI. The range of actions available make developing a business logic much quicker and very efficiently through microflows.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is not the Modeler itself but the documentation available for it. Some of the functions that can be used in the Modeler are very poorly explained without any sufficient examples. I would definitely need some more information as to better understand and use the available functions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems resolved by Mendix and the app I am offering support for are in the insurance industry. I have managed to create a whole variety of features that simplify users' life throughout a quote/policy cycle.

"Powerful development tool "

What do you like best?

Quick and easy to create basic web applications. You can start creating your own web applications with the basic training Mendix provides. However you have the possibility to create powerful core process applications with a lot of integrations.

What do you dislike?

The Platform restrictions that are defined by design decisions, you are limited by what Mendix offers you. However you can go 'outside' the platform and create additional widgets but they are harder to maintain and this isn't helping the general overview of the application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix helps us in delivering a multi language tool for clients all over the world. They struggled with slow development and updates, now they have the possibility to update every customer at once with the same version built.

"First steps in a fast paced development world"

What do you like best?

What I like best is the ease of development combined with the speed of development. When an issue turns up, a first solution can usually be tested within the hour.

What do you dislike?

The links with other systems can be improved in my opinion. Furthermore, the creation of page layouts is more difficult than it has to be. I hope that with the further development of the web modeler, this will also be picked up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The online learning community is very well designed. After following the rapid developer path, everyone can develop their own starting app. I would thus recommend starting here.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a consultancy firm, we tackle the problems of our customers using mendix. These problems are mostly retail related.

"The most flexible and best supported low-code platform"

What do you like best?

All of the mentioned features + the great support from mendix itself

What do you dislike?

Modeler could preferably be more WYSIWYG.

Can't wait for the desktop modeler to be as WYSIWYG as (or even more than) the web modeler.

UX/UI possibilities could preferably be extended, current functionality is usable for 80% of the situations, the other 20% requires 80% of the effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would advise using Mendix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Up to now I only used NMnendix to solve bid, PoC and training problems, but also in those situations the added value of Mendix is already showing.

"Highly recommend Mendix"

What do you like best?

Mendix is a brand-new world. The low code concept must be the trend. I used Blue Prism before so I can easily catch these similar ideas.

What do you dislike?

The web modeler can't do some complicate activities so I had to switch to desktop modelers. But sometimes the web modeler is much easier to do some UI work.

It was slow and not easy to make sure both modelers sync very well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I encourage everyone to take a look on Mendix.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mendix apps replace the legacy application in a much better new level. The back-end data will be changed to Big Data so the front-end legacy apps can't work anymore.

"Rapid Application Development"

What do you like best?

The platform allows great colllaboration within the whole team. This enables quicker and smarter application delivery.

A developer can quickly show the business how different ideas can work and the users can see the progress all the time keeping them fully engaged and excited in the journey.

What do you dislike?

The document generation side and reporting could be a little more sophisticated.

For example, it would be great if the drill through reports allowed more functionality.

That said, using OData the data can easily be manipulated in many reporting tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those considering implementing a mending solution, I would really just go ahead and try it - it really is the way forward!

For those learning, I would encourage you to try and get involved in the Mendix community - there is a great academy site - and some great documentation, tutorials and webinars available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a Business Partner with Mendix, we are working with our clients closely to deliver innovative and exciting applications.

"A powerful tool with seemingly limitless resources."

What do you like best?

I would be hard pressed to think of a sort of application that you would not be able to build using Mendix. Once you learn to think like Mendix; its world seems to open up to you. There is an endless and ever-growing library of extensions and plugins to help you basically do anything that you might want to. A vibrant user community is there for support, should you need it.

What do you dislike?

There is a steep learning curve; the fact that the platform has its own particular vernacular makes it nigh impossible for a self-starter to just open up the app and start without any form of guidance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is helpful to seek as much knowledge about this platform as possible, as it is difficult to find your way through the initial stages without a guide of some sort. Even searching the user forums is extremely helpful; as you will seldom - if ever - be the only person who has not had the same question.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have used the platform to handle form submissions as well as databases and statistics applications. Integrating APIs into the apps have helped us to create powerful apps that have the "brain" of the organization, or at least its data.

"Mendix: model driven world"

What do you like best?

The ability to visually design a domain model. Allowing developers to quickly create a model, keep it simple, clear and explainable to the business. As the domain model is the core of the application, this really matters later on in a project.

Next to that almost anything can be realized quickly and well.

What do you dislike?

As a low code platform Mendix provides a lot of default elements, however when these do not fit the requirements you have to revert back to coding to provide alternatives. Mendix is working on improving this however, making the default widgets more adaptable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Bridging different platforms (SAP, ArcGIS, etc) within one organization.

A company wide project planning tool.

Mendix is a platform that is designed to create complexity in a matter of hours with tools that are simple to a developer, yet have a sophisticated underlying layer or logic. This helps in creating smart apps in a short period of time.

What do you dislike?

If you want to create an app for a smaller company, they will most likely not like the expensive license.
