We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The security is the most valuable feature, in particular, the way I can give different access to different areas to different people, so you can really fine-tune access for different users."
"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."
"The user interface for the systems that you build can use some improvement because as it is now, you have to do a lot of HTML and CSS to make it look modern."
"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."
