Mendix Named a Leader Among Low-Code Development Platforms for AD&D Pros by Independent Research Firm

Analysts recognize Mendix for its continued innovation, outstanding user experience and developer community

BOSTON, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mendix, the fastest and easiest platform to create and continuously improve mobile and web applications, announced today that Forrester Research has ranked the company as a Leader in "The Forrester Wave™: Low-Code Development Platforms for AD&D Pros, Q4 2017." Since its inception, Mendix has consistently been at the forefront of the low-code development platforms market, delivering numerous industry-first innovations and unrivaled architectural sophistication for supporting large-scale, enterprise deployments.

The new report underscores the strategic importance and value of low-code development platforms. Referencing a survey of AD&D leaders, Forrester highlights how low-code platforms help IT organizations dramatically speed application and innovation delivery. The survey also reveals that low-code platforms are being leveraged for large, mission-critical applications—dispelling a common myth that they're suitable only for small, departmental apps.

Based on Forrester's 26-criteria evaluation, Mendix was named a Leader in low-code development platforms for application development and delivery (AD&D) pros. In the report, Forrester notes that, "Mendix continues to innovate in new use cases and deepen its features across the board. Its decision to base its low-code environment on Cloud Foundry also paid big dividends, as SAP — a Cloud Foundry distributor — adopted the vendor's platform as its worldwide low-code solution. That partnership is the first by one of the four largest enterprise vendors (IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and SAP) with a low-code platform vendor and should accelerate Mendix's already substantial growth."

"We believe our recognition as a Leader in this low-code platform evaluation is validation of our track record of technology leadership and the breadth of our strategic partnerships," said Derek Roos, CEO at Mendix. "Mendix has become the de facto standard for low-code development in the enterprise, enabling both professional and citizen developers to build apps in support of large-scale deployments."

Mendix Uniquely Enables Low-Code Development in an Enterprise Context

Combining full-stack visual development, a cloud-native architecture, and an integrated set of tools for the complete application lifecycle, Mendix is uniquely suited for low-code development within an enterprise context. Mendix enables organizations to:

  • Empower a continuum of developers – Mendix enables a range of users to visually model full-stack applications. The Desktop Modeler provides deep features that enable professional developers to balance higher productivity with control, while the Web Modeler's WYSIWYG environment enables citizen developers to rapidly build prototypes.
  • Promote iterative development – With agile project management capabilities and a built-in feedback loop, Mendix promotes rapid, iterative development in collaboration with the business. Teams can quickly deliver MVPs that address a few key features, and then leverage user feedback to enhance applications incrementally over time, delivering ongoing value.
  • Create smart experiences – Mendix enables developers to incorporate technologies like IoT, AI, machine learning, and blockchain into their apps, without needing specialized skills. They can leverage pre-built connectors available in the Mendix App Store, or build their own connectors and make them available to less technical developers as native model elements in the platform.
  • Deploy web-scale applications – Mendix's cloud-native, stateless architecture enables out-of-the-box high availability and fail over to support web-scale deployments. In addition, through its support of Cloud Foundry, Docker, and Kubernetes, Mendix offers unrivaled deployment flexibility and portability across public, private, and virtual private clouds, or on-premises.
