No-code how it should be done

5.0 3 years ago

Pros:

The fact that it works. In my experience, the competition had too many requirements/limitations/bugs that make them very tedious to be used by someone who doesn't have experience with it. Mendix does what it's supposed to do and doesn't expect its users to implement workarounds for every new feature. The integration between development, versionning, CI/CD is both simple and powerful. Native featureset is very extensive. Although I've never had to do it myself so far, it's good to know that Java/JavaScript features can always be added if need be.

Cons:

The mobile app deployment system through PhoneGap is confusing. Native themes are visually slightly outdated. Modifications to CSS are doable through SASS editors. It would be nice if it were better integrated with the no-code IDE.

Great tool for quick development of simple apps

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: I have worked with Mendix for almost 4 years now and have developed several large applications. I took part in short 1-month projects and in a long project lasting over 1 year. In both cases it was possible to deliver production ready application that suited the needs of the customer. Platform is not flawless but it's the best low code platform from which I have had a chance to try with many options and powerful set of customizable components. I definitely recommend this platform for simple applications, because that's what Mendix is best at.

Pros:

Simple applications are really easy to create and manage using this software. Thanks to online capabilities and built in SVN/git it is possible to quickly deliver applications while collaborating with the team. From my experience the development process is 5 times faster than with traditional development methods! My customers are always surprised that we can deliver production ready application within even two months! Another plus is the possibility to add java and javascript actions when a custom operation is required.

Cons:

While developing a simple application is really easy using Mendix, when the logic is more complex and the operations are more sophisticated, the process gets harder. Because of development speed every change in requirements is twice as painful. The platform is also not the best when it comes to performance - some operations are impossible to be developed optimally without usage of java code. Also mendix academy courses have errors which makes it hard to train newcomers in the technology.

Mendix is just ok

4.0 6 years ago

Pros:

I use it to weartest products, which I love to do. So it’s hard not to like.

Cons:

Most of the time when I pull up this site, it loads so I cannot see the left side of the screen. This is frustrating. I don’t know how to fix it.

Idéal platform for the creation of application.

5.0 last year

Comments: excellent, I create very good applications using Mendix

Pros:

What I like most about Mendix, is the ability to make or create the appls dedicated to Large companies easily, quickly with very low code. this platform also offers us virtuals models that helps us achieve type of appls we want for the company.

Cons:

I don't encounter any problem in the use of Mendix,my opinion it is designed for large companies and is not as good on adviser for medium-sized companies.

Fast faster fast

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Because we are able to build solutions like portals & Apps without writing code in an Agile way of working (stories & sprints) we are able toe deliver more value to business demand and business is engaged because they understand what we build and see results almost every week.

Pros:

The software is a low code solution helping development cycles being 6 - 10 times faster. What i like is that we are able to minimize coding thanks to the visual modeller that ships with the solution. Also we liked the full stack approach. From ideation, automated deployment and database creation to version management and integrated feedback loops.

Cons:

There are always improvements possible. At this moment we are happy with the continue flow of new functionality like the Artificial Assist approach predicting the next step when developing.
