Building upon Mendix World 2014, the company’s biggest community event, Mendix has experienced strong growth within its ecosystem of partners, system integrators, strategy consultants and ISVs.

The ability to then extend this intelligence to websites and mobile devices is key in delivering what the organizations of today, and tomorrow, need to stay ahead of competition.”
