What is most valuable?The workflow and automation features are quite good and valuable.
How has it helped my organization?This solution has allowed us to reduce the time required for building applications.

What is most valuable?* The ability to rapidly build applications. * Built-in management tool called Sprinter gives everyone involved in the development of the application an overview of the current state and progress of the application being built. * Supports collaborative development which minimizes the risk of having… more»
How has it helped my organization?Easy document generation saves a lot of time. The integrated security also saves a lot of time, especially when it comes to setting up user-roles and security. Finally, database updates work automatically. There is no need to write queries to update the database, once you make an update.
What needs improvement?They need to enable 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… more»
What other advice do I have?I would give it an eight out of 10 because of the ability to rapidly build apps with Mendix. You could actually build an application as someone from the business side is explaining what the solution requires.

What is most valuable?* Mendix code and coding logic are very visual. It looks like a flow chart rather than lines of code. Rapid development is what drew us to Mendix. * It is easy to create prototype pages without a lot of development, once the Entity (table) is created. * You can generate a page with a few clicks, using the default features after proof of concept, then develop the logic behind the page.
How has it helped my organization?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.
What needs improvement?Mendix is great for internal applications but not so great for a public-facing interface. It lacks a proper directory structure for public use. The URL will not change from page to page unless a deep link is created for each page. That makes it difficult to bookmark pages in the browser to view later on. A feed can be created for other public UI solutions.

What is most valuable?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… more»
How has it helped my organization?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. Full focus on the business case needs and not on implementation. Speeds up the development by a factor of several times over regular development.
What needs improvement?* Overview of model versioning control for the sake of the review process * Better SCRUM board * Provide an overview of model changes from the repository through Sprintr (SCRUM board) * A choice between versioning control system would be nice
