"The solution is stable."
"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."
"What I found most valuable in Mendix is that it's very much suitable for mobile apps such as native Android or IOS supported mobile apps. The multiple features of the platform are very, very attractive and very popular. Mendix has technical features such as microflows and nanoflows. You can also access data models in the platform. These are the features that are very, very strong in Mendix. I got my hands dirty on other low-code platforms, but I have not seen such strong features in them compared to the microflows, nanoflows, and data model access that are in Mendix, including creating and integration. The platform has out-of-the-box adapters or out-of-the-box-connectors that you can integrate with different interface applications such as SAP, Salesforce, Oracle EBS, etc."
"They are leading in the smart manufacturing, and connectivity space."
"We find it intuitive and easy to use."
"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 is a free version of the solution you can use."
"It is stable."
"I like how we can actively develop and customize APEX because it's on the same database."
"Intuitive with a user-friendly UI."
"I like the way that it automatically goes into the spreadsheets and the users can deal with it."
"One of the most valuable features is that we can develop everything locally and deploy it for different kinds of operators in different locations, so we can do our job in one piece. The benefit of that is that others can use these applications. They connect to the internet to do these kinds of applications based on the permissions for those users."
"The most valuable features are security, stability, and ease of implementation."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of use."
"It has a well-designed architecture and is a simple 3rd party application."
"Quick development and the connection with the database are the most valuable and useful features. It is also very stable, scalable, and easy to set up. Its support is also good."
"My understanding is that, if you are not using the free version, it is very expensive."
"While the community is great, they need to work on making their direct technical support services better."
"There is always a layer of custom code required."
"You need experienced programmers and developers to understand this solution."
"There's no direct tech support."
"Mendix is slightly less scalable than I'd like."
"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."
"The platform still has many areas for improvement. If I compare apples to apples, the PWA features of Mendix could be improved, for example, I wouldn't recommend creating a B2C or B2B marketplace or web portals on Mendix, but there's a tendency for people to still do it through the systems provided by my company, particularly implement B2B or B2C marketplace, versus using eBay or Shopify. On the web portal front, Mendix still needs to improve."
"Currently, APEX doesn't have a building workflow engine. I think that's the most important improvement that could be made at this point."
"I don't like the URL syntax."
"Connections to the application pages are not handled well and at times more than one user can be accessing an application with the same ID."
"There is not a lot of Wiki help or in Google, but there is some."
"Visual Builder and APEX should meld in one product."
"The collaboration and the workflow engine could use some improvement."
"Some of the application interfaces of Oracle Application Express are not very attractive and could be improved."
"When exporting, we can't export dynamic reports, only static reports. For example, when we want to export charts or tables it is only exported as a static report so we can't drop down on these reports; however, we can see this information when we are on the dashboard itself."
