Mendix Features In Depth

Agile Project Management

Agile project management enables Mendix users to stay on top of their development projects. Organizations that use Mendix are able to estimate and plan sprints and future releases, while also monitoring progress using scrum boards and burn-down charts.

You can set up your own project and team using Mendix’s agile project management tools. In addition to capturing and prioritizing user stories, you’re also able to use social collaboration tools for smarter business communication and continually iterate apps through direct user feedback loops.

Visual App Development

One of the secrets to Mendix’s power is its visual app development capability where organizations are able to build omni-channel apps very quickly.

When you use Mendix to manage your development projects, you get access to top-grade developer support. This includes eclipse integration to extend models with code, branching and merging for distributed development and hotfix delivery, version management for models and code, real-time consistency checks, live debugging, and component-based development with app store integration.

One-Click Deployment

Business users can run their applications with a single click while automated provisioning of application environments and developer sandboxes for instant testing are two of the ways that Mendix makes DevOps more efficient.

You can choose between a public cloud, private cloud, or on-premise, and use Mendix’s Build Server API to test automation and continuous integration before your app goes live. You can also run your innovation on any device, including mobile smartphones and tablets.

Central App Management

Mendix offers tools that enable users to manage all of their applications (mobile and desktop), configurations, and resources for a unified, centralized dashboard. This central app management feature includes backups, logging, and monitoring in real-time.

Central app management allows you to build, share and run custom apps without relying on your organization’s traditional IT resources. Not only does this increase organizational agility, but it also unlocks creative potential within the workforce. App environments are configurable to a user’s needs.

The most comprehensive rapid application delivery platform available.

2013-09-25

Mendix manages to balance the ability to create complex enterprise applications with a complete set of features ranging from agile project management, to a model-driven-development environment, and from one-click deployment to security/performance management in the cloud or onsite.

Pros

- Supports multi-device apps/device-specific UIs - Deploy onsite or in Mendix's cloud - Integrated feedback mechanism - Subscription pricing model - Visual models interpreted at run-time, so no messy code-generation

Cons

- smaller Community/AppStore than Force.com - Development environment downloaded locally

All-in-One development tool for everybody

2014-04-24

Mendix is a model-driven development platform to deliver all kinds of complex mobile,tablet and web applications with simplicity.

Pros

One click deployment with super-fast turnaround from a concept to something substantial in days. End-to-end services provided. Highly scalable or can even be quite complex but still maintains flexibility and speed to do changes easily.

Cons

Appstore has less apps right now but it should grow with the new appcloud and sandbox releases.

Great option for creating business software

2020-07-14

Pros

I've worked through Mendix for one of the university projects, where we modelled a warehouse and production with a detailed specification of roles and functionalities.

Cons

At times it could be inconsistent, and I believe it was due to performance issues, where rushing through functionalities would cause them to break due to not being able to save changes fast enough.

Fast faster fast

2018-12-19

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

From ideation, automated deployment and database creation to version management and integrated feedback loops.

Cons

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

Great app platform for creating great applications

2015-11-25

For instant the Sportlight search, IFTTT for Mendix and some document generation apps.

Pros

+ Bring the ideas or dreams of your customer to reality with a working app. + Quick, fast, rapid, agile. Did I mention speed? + Surprise your customers and friends

Cons

- Sometime a bit difficult to explain what a App platform is like Mendix to non-tech people. But if you prototype their idea you can let them see it works or let them talk to one of our fans(=customers)
