Mendix is an excellent tool to put the business in charge again for realizing IT projects. In the pension project we worked in sprints of two weeks in which we created functionality which was going to be tested by the business instantly. In this way the business stayed connected with the IT solution and was in charge of the project. Mendix is an excellent tool to execute the scrum way of working in a successful way.
Improvements to My Organization:
Often the business comes to the conclusion that it is not working as they had thought it would after they have seen a first version. In Mendix it is really easy to show this first version and to change it according to the business needs.
Room for Improvement:
After two weeks the business will be able to see what they had in mind and will be able to validate whether the IT people have understood what they meant but also whether the solution is going to work as they had in mind.
We haven't had any issues with deployment.
We haven't had any issues with stability.
We haven't had any issues with scalability.
Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are an implementation partner for Mendix but we are also a customer as we have used the platform to build several solutions like a business rule engine, a support desk, etc.
