Mendix, the enterprise app platform as a service company, announced details of an expanded partner program designed to accelerate time to success for its diverse and rapidly growing ecosystem. Building upon significant platform enhancements unveiled at Mendix World 2014, 20 new partners worldwide have invested in building a Mendix practice, greatly expanding the development resources available in North America and Europe to rapidly deliver multi-channel applications and accelerate innovation for clients.
The Mendix Partner Program offers several new and enhanced elements, including access to more resources for onboarding new partners and ensuring their ongoing success. Specific program highlights include:
- Expanded global partner team, including dedicated partner managers to enable and support partners, helping drive revenue and joint client success
- Expanded development tools, including architecture patterns, reusable apps and components and unlimited sandbox environments. These help partners to quickly build, share and refine custom apps
- Expanded online training to accelerate onboarding of new partners, allowing them to quickly build practices skilled in the delivery of Mendix-based solutions
- Enhanced Marketplace to facilitate the ability of partners to monetize their Mendix-based solutions in the Mendix community App Store
“The expanded partner program reflects our commitment to invest heavily in the support and enablement of our diverse and rapidly growing partner ecosystem,” said Mark Rogers, Vice President of Business Development at Mendix. “Our goal is to help as many partners as possible globally to use, grow and thrive with Mendix as we pioneer the next generation of application delivery.”
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. In the first half of 2014, 20 new partners began building Mendix service offerings, investing in training and development of packaged industry solutions. These firms include Bodhtree, Bouyant Solutions, CabForward, HERA, Incentro, Kinetech, KnowledgeSource Solutions, MCF Tech Solutions, Navivo Technology Solutions, Nokavision, Pariveda Solutions, Pegamento, Sogeti, Solvos, Synex, Synobsys, Techiva, Triumph Consultancy and UST Global.
This adds to Mendix’s vibrant partner community around the world, which includes firms such as Accenture, Capgemini and many others. This ecosystem, with thousands of highly skilled developers and consultants, is delivering custom applications faster, easier and at lower costs than traditional development methods.
Pal Natarajan, CEO of Bodhtree: “We’re building out our healthcare and life sciences practice with the help of Mendix. Our deep domain knowledge, combined with the rapid development capabilities of the Mendix platform, will help accelerate the delivery of vertical solutions for managing and optimizing key business processes.”
Krishna Prasad, CSO of UST Global: “UST Global has a strong and deep client base where accelerated alignment and delivery of Apps to the needs of the New Age customer is critical. We strongly believe that Mendix will be a significant tool that propels IT innovation.”
Serge Poppes, CEO of Pegamento: “Pegamento partnered with Mendix to further empower the delivery of contextually relevant solutions that the market has come to know us for. The ability to deliver full-scale, back-end integrated applications extremely rapidly enables Pegamento’s customers to swiftly shift focus from using and maintaining applications to an intelligent customer centric approach. 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.”
Michael Guido, CEO of Kinetech: “We partnered with Mendix because the Mendix App Platform allows our consultants and system architects to rapidly innovate to deliver real results for our customers. By shortening development cycles and customer feedback loops, Mendix allows Kinetech to deliver agile solutions in a fraction of the time and cost.”

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT ...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Both buyers and sellers want instant results, and from paperwork to paperless to mindless is the ultimate goal for any seamless transaction. The sweetest sweet spot in innov...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
