We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS."
"It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things."
"It is easy to deploy applications, and we don't need to bother about software updates on the server. We don't need to bother about machines, servers, and hardware. We only need to care about the system and functionality that we need or want to develop. They take care of everything else. It provides high availability. It is a pretty good solution that provides everything that we need. It has everything that we need to run our applications. We have many different applications, and we generate three million bills for a company in Brazil. We see more than a billion requests per day in another application. Everything works just fine, and it is very good."
"The solution is stable."
"We find it intuitive and easy to use."
"There are free online learning and certifications if a user would like to learn more and better understand the solution."
"The most valuable features are the integration and UI customization."
"The features that I have found most valuable with Mendix are its business process management and its minimal low code, both from an interface perspective and from a process perspective."
"They could flesh out some of their analytics a little more."
"Heroku doesn't support Docker images on the CI infrastructure."
"Their support is good, but they can improve their response time."
"You need experienced programmers and developers to understand this solution."
"There are not enough developers who are using Mendix. The knowledge base available online and in the market is not as rich as other competitors."
"There's no direct tech support."
"There needs to be an increase in the number of the UI components."
"Mendix is slightly less scalable than I'd like."
