We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Zoho Creator can be integrated with other platforms easily."
"I just like the simplicity of it."
"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."
"They should allow for more UI customization."
"When you're developing database-type applications, there is no way to see the actual database tables. They call them forms, and I don't like that. Zoho should also provide better user guides."
