We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
I think that the workflow and automation features are quite good.It is a brilliant solution.The development environment is model-driven. We can use the information from this for our business engineers to make the information models, and they can also execute the model.The integrated security saves a lot of time, especially when it comes to setting up user-roles and security. Also, database updates work automatically. There is no need to write queries to update the database, once you make an update.It's amazing that you can build web apps and mobile (hybrid) apps with one code base in a few clicks. It's a full continuous integration environment.Mendix has made a great deal of effort to provide its developers a healthy, modern environment for developing. First of all, it adopts Agile methodology by creating a SCRUM-based app where you can handle your user stories. Next comes version control, which really allows multiple team members to collaborate quite easily. And last but not least, Mendix modeler, which is your IDE for developing Mendix apps.Suite allows you to easily and smoothly integrate with pretty much anything. It is also cloud-enabled. It provides a full Cloud Foundry-driven cloud environment with one-click deployment.Enables us to rapidly create a complex application. We are also able to customize features that stakeholders in the corporation want to see, something that could not be done with other software. Our workflows and processes have evolved and improved. The fast iterations allow us to be nimble, get feedback from users, and do rapid updates.

Cons
Overall, integration with the enterprise ecosystem needs improvement.While the documentation is good, the development box could be better.What is lacking is the support of higher level modeling features, like the modeling you do is relatively low level, yet it is still close to programming. We would like to see a more business-oriented modeling environment, like BPMN.Needs multiple database connections so an app can directly read/write data to/from multiple databases. This would enable easy splitting of big applications that have complex entity relationships.I would also like to see automatic adjustment to the Java Heap, whenever an application load becomes too much for the application. It could also use hot database replication.I would like to see more documentation as well as how-to documents.It needs to provide an overview of model versioning control for the sake of the review process; better SCRUM board; an overview of model changes from the repository through Sprintr (SCRUM board). Also, a choice between versioning control system would be nice.It could use a more comprehensive widget creation studio in the IDE.

The integration towards other ERP systems could be improved.The basic reporting system is rather static.The pricing model is complex and needs to be both lowered and simplified.The licensing for this solution, with respect to the user, needs to be improved.We would like to see AI used to automate some of the functionality in this solution.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.From a commercial point of view, we would like them to change that they currently sell it as a platform, but as a customer you have to decide upfront the usage of the platform. We would like to have Mendix sell it as a pay as you go model: You pay for what you use, and you don't pay for what you don't use.

It's expensive and if you need some analytical views of your activity, there is an additional cost.Pricing is based on the number of users and user licenses, but the product is 20% to 30% more than the competition.
