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.

Great UI and an easy initial setup, however, users are limited to 2,000 records

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a general business process improvement. We use it as more of a digital transformation to eliminate some archaic manual processes that the business has built up over time. We're working to make everything more streamlined.

Pros and Cons

  • "There's a lot of online knowledge on the solution, to the point where new users can basically teach themselves how to use the solution."
  • "One of the major problems with it is what PowerApps calls the delegation warning. Regardless of what platform, data source, et cetera, that you're using, you can't retrieve more than 2000 records."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with Microsoft. We are most likely using the most recent or updated version of the solution, however, I'm unsure of the exact version number. While Microsoft is an option, I'd recommend users check out OutSystems first and see if it makes sense for them to use that before looking into Microsoft. Overall, I'd rate the solution six out of ten.

A good integration layer and responsive support

What is our primary use case?

We are implementors. We advise our clients on building applications and doing innovation. We have a strong belief that no-coding is the future. Betty Blocks is a Dutch no-code platform provider, with a similar background to Mendix, and OutSystems. In our view, they are very promising because they really go to the no-coding promise, which basically means that a business user could use the platform to build its own applications. Betty Blocks is taking this concept one step further than Mendix and OutSystems.

Pros and Cons

    • "I would like to see full integration with AI."
    • "In many cases, they make choices where flexibility is a little bit degraded, but if you leave everything open and the flexibility is great then the usability is a little bit less."

    What other advice do I have?

    I can recommend this solution to other users. I would rate Betty Blocks an eight out of ten.

    Good price and easy to create different types of processes, but doesn't integrate with other solutions and not suitable for complex processes

    What is our primary use case?

    We are using it for our processes. We have its latest version.

    Pros and Cons

    • "Its cost is the most valuable. It is not as expensive. It is also easy to make different types of processes for the users."
    • "Bizagi doesn't have integrations with other solutions, such as ERP systems. In the industry and your company, you have a lot of systems with which you need to integrate, but Bizagi doesn't have such integrations, which makes it very difficult. Its scalability can also be improved. It is good for a startup, but when you need something more complex, it is not good."

    What other advice do I have?

    It is good for proof of concept. You can have a lot of issues if you don't know the features. It is a good solution, but when you have a complex problem, it is not enough. I would rate Bizagi a five out of ten.
