Mendix Review

It is an immediate fit between delivered software and what the users really wants.


Valuable Features

Modeling application and generating code in stead of manual coding.

Improvements to My Organization

The software is mainly designed and built by business engineers instead of software engineers. This leads to an immediate fit between delivered software and what the users really wants.

Room for Improvement

User experience and performance with large datasets.

Use of Solution

We've used it for 10 years.

Deployment Issues

We've had no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues

When you restrict yourself to the native functionality the Mendix platform offers you great stability.

Scalability Issues

When using custom build widget, Javascript and Java Action, stability depends more on using the correct versions of SDK's, libraries etc.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

5/10

Technical Support:

5/10

Initial Setup

It's straightforward. It depends on the choice of on-premise or cloud implementation as to how easy it is. For on-premise implementation you need some expertise, while the cloud implementation just needs you to follow the manuals or take a one day training course.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Mendix is not cheap. License fees go sky high when using it as a business to consumer platform. However, they change their pricing models frequently.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at OutSystems, Triggre, and Apex. We chose Mendix because of the learning curve.

Other Advice

Think about the type of product you want to develop. Mendix is great for internal software development or B2B SAAS solutions When working with large dataset or when userexperience is of great importance please rethink the use of this platform

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We're partners
