Mendix Review

Time required to build applications has been reduced by up to forty percent


What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is for agile development using low-code and no-code tools.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has allowed us to reduce the time required for building applications.

What is most valuable?

The workflow and automation features are quite good and valuable.

What needs improvement?

Overall, integration with the enterprise ecosystem needs improvement.

I would like to see the inclusion of APIs that can help with the interoperability.

For how long have I used the solution?

Two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability is ok. It is a bit stable, but we are seeing an increase in workload complexity, so they'll have to figure out a scaler.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I think that right now, the scale-out is quite ok. It is scalable.

We have more than twenty users including developers, system handlers, business analysts, testers, and DevOps. The DevOps team is really what really takes it ahead.

In terms of usage, there is a lot of interest in low-code and no-code tools. There are even other tools like OutSystems and others. There are also automation tools, such as RPA (Robotic Process Automation) tools. It is still an evolving market.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is quite okay, although as they expand they will probably have to increase their global support.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before Mendix, we were looking at some open source solutions.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not too complex, but it took some time. I would say that it was mid-difficulty.

Our deployment took about four to six weeks, and then we used it for some of our application development builds. We took some of the agile projects and aligned them to that.

What about the implementation team?

We used a system integrator for the implementation.

What was our ROI?

In terms of ROI, we have seen an approximate 30%-40% reduction in time that we require for building applications.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Initially, we started with a year for approximately $25,000, and if we need to expand the number of seats then we will increase it. There are no additional costs for us at the moment, but I think that if you need any professional services then they charge for them.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated OutSystems, Pega Platform, Google App Builder, and a few others.

What other advice do I have?

This solution has good coverage, but I think that their roadmap still needs more features and functions. It also needs better integration with the current stack.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
