"Good workflow engines that bridge the gaps of processes."
"I find the BPM the most valuable feature."
"Appian has many valuable features, the first being the ease of development—rapid development. Second, the process of learning the product and tool is faster when compared to its peers in the market. It's closer to low-code, and while it's still not very easy, it's more low-code than other products in the industry. Appian has a good user interface, a seamless model user interface, which comes without additional coding. It can also integrate with multiple systems."
"We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features."
"Compared to other code tools that I've seen, Appian has a more robust rules engine"
"The initial setup was seamless. We didn't run into any hardships at all."
"In terms of interface, it's very good. In terms of infrastructure, it's amazing and already using multiple tools behind the scenes. It's a low-code platform, so it's very easy to implement."
"It provides us with real-time data on all connected systems in terms of how they're integrated with each other and how they are performing in a workflow manner."
"The most valuable features are the integration and UI customization."
"We find it intuitive and easy to use."
"The solution is stable."
"The most valuable features are the decorative style, model-driven development, and the fact that Mendix validates flows. Mendix is quick to develop because it's a low-code platform. It's very robust, flexible, open, and scalable. It's for a low-code customer. The tooling is also really good and it has mobile capabilities."
"There are free online learning and certifications if a user would like to learn more and better understand the solution."
"The features that I have found most valuable with Mendix are its business process management and its minimal low code, both from an interface perspective and from a process perspective."
"They should provide more flexibility so designers can create a more picture perfect device."
"I would like to see more complete university tools. For example, with UiPath, I have had a good experience related to a free course in order to provide some users some different levels of knowledge. This extra training helps users not only use the solution but to develop further within the tool."
"The graphical user interface could be easier to use. It should be simplified."
"It is also not easy to learn. Training tutorials could be improved."
"Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built."
"Lacks integration with other products."
"Lacks business rules management as part of the solution."
"What could be improved is more on the front end perspective, like the user interface and the mobile application aspect."
"An improvement I would like to see is the ability to version manage independent modules. Their version management for software repositories must be better. It's good and you can do it, but it needs work."
"Mendix is slightly less scalable than I'd like."
"There's no direct tech support."
"There needs to be an increase in the number of the UI components."
"There are not enough developers who are using Mendix. The knowledge base available online and in the market is not as rich as other competitors."
"You need experienced programmers and developers to understand this solution."
