Mendix Review

The ease of use for complex development structures is good. T​he out of the box crud screens can be made more user friendly.


Valuable Features:

  • Micro flows, because of the ease of use for complex development structures
  • Wide variety of in app store Widgets such as Deep Link, Active Directory integration, graphs (bar/spider charts), and geo location functionality
  • Ability to customize the style sheets 
  • Mobile development framework
  • Java integration with Mendix
  • Remote debugging
  • The ease of use for complex development structures
  • SAP integration 

Improvements to My Organization:

We developed a tool/product called Survey Quest. The tool enable the user to do perform surveys and  improveme them as well as its functionality.

Room for Improvement:

The out of the box crud screens can be made more user friendly, but then again it is a business application tool to quickly generate crud screens for enterprise application, not focused on public facing/entertainment values.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for two years.

Deployment Issues:

There were no deployment issues.

Stability Issues:

The system was performing not as quick/fast as it should have.  

Scalability Issues:

There were memory leaks after a week of it being live. We need to clear the memory once a week.

Initial Setup:

It was straightforward.

Implementation Team:

We developed a solution in house.

ROI:

ROIs at this stage is not good because of the high license fees.

Other Solutions Considered:

We also looked at Microsoft/Java options. We initially thought the license fees and speed of development was too slow.

Other Advice:

I was involved developing a solution.  We also did a site for skillsmap in mendix that was live for one and a half years. 


Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We had a business relation ship (BCX with Mendix) . It came to an end because of license fees.
