Responsive with a straightforward setup and good online training

What is our primary use case?

In our biggest project to date, we replicated with somebody else. It took three years to do uncompleted, and we replicated it in about six months, to build an end-to-end application for customer use. Traditionally, it's basically used for anything where there's not an out-of-the-box solution available. We don't recommend people use it for out-of-box solutions, as you're typically going to get better support and value by using something else. This, on the other hand, is something you can customize as you desire.

Pros and Cons

  • "There are free online learning and certifications if a user would like to learn more and better understand the solution."
  • "There's no direct tech support."

What other advice do I have?

I work post-sales doing basically project management and solution design before it hits my developers. We use a variety of different versions of the solution which we use. Mostly, it's version 8.3 on. That being said, if it's a new customer, they're going to have the most recent. If it's not, we update them as appropriate depending on how it's going to affect the existing environment. We're looking forward to 9.0, coming out this month actually. They're discussing a lot of good, new features we're excited about. I'd recommend those considering the solution to take the classes, as they're worth…

Intuitive and can likely scale but needs more AI integration

What is our primary use case?

One use case which we're thinking about at the moment is for a clearing platform for security clearing for risk assessment on margin accounts. It happens from time to time that there is a situation called margin call, which is basically a process where one of our operators from the risk unit behind securities needs to get more money or more assets from the client who owns the margin account. At the moment, the process is that they have a spreadsheet or checklist in digital form and they go through a highly governed process. They follow a printed-out or virtual copy step-by-step. At each step… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "We find it intuitive and easy to use."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

We are just a customer and end-user. We're not using the latest version of the solution, however, we're going to upgrade to the latest one. In Mendix, we're using 8.9, however, we're now going to upgrade soon as some of our teams have just started using later libraries, and obviously, that needs upgrading. We're heavily governed and our governance processes and approvals for cloud take forever. We have these automations deployed on-premise. Both Blue Prism and Mendix are hosted internally and will be for a number of years. We want to go cloud, however, first, we need to get our internal…

Has good integration and UI customization

What is our primary use case?

We do not use the solution, but manage Mendix's process. We are partnered with Mendix and implement it within the organization, something practiced with prevalence in the UAE. Those making use of the solution are happy with it. The Ministry of Digital Economy in Jordan, which is responsible for managing the service portfolio of the Jordanian government, is wholly based on our Mendix application.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the integration and UI customization."
  • "There needs to be an increase in the number of the UI components."

What other advice do I have?

While I can't say exactly which version of Mendix we are using, I can state that it is the latest one. The business analyst has a more important role than that of the developer in a Mendix project. He needs a proper understanding of how to design the Mendix process so it may be automatable and executable. The business analyst must be able to use a Mendix platform. As Mendix needs to improve its product and support, I rate it as an eight out of ten.
