Massive improvements to the Mendix low-code software development platform; Additions strengthen the company’s digital ecosystem


BOSTON, September 7, 2021 / PRNewswire / – At the Mondial Mendix 2021, the largest virtual assembly of low-coders ever created, Mendix, a Siemens company and a global leader in developing low-code business applications, today announced its new and expanded digital ecosystem. The new capabilities of the Mendix platform will enable the 250,000 members of the Mendix Maker community to assemble and extend high value-added solutions with building blocks, and also to supply and market these building blocks to them. themselves, creating new business value for their organizations and further improving the value of the Mendix market for the entire community.

The shortage of traditional software developers is acute. This year, in the lead researchers have documented the sudden and accelerating trend towards the digitization, automation and democratization of software development, as companies seek new ways to harness and evolve technology to maintain a competitive advantage in a transformed Marlet. As Derek roos, CEO and co-founder of Mendix, noted in his Mendix World 2021 speech, there is also good news: Last year’s global disruption has also brought large-scale innovation to virtually every industry so that businesses have responded to the emerging digital economy.

Describing Mendix’s vision and his continued leadership in this transformed landscape, Roos said, “The line between consumption and creation is blurring. Increased collaboration between manufacturers and low-code consumers opens up new business opportunities, enabling the commercialization of new digital capabilities, and the data that flows through them. By harnessing and enhancing the power of Mendix’s digital solutions ecosystem, there is no obstacle to the ability of our low-code creators to innovate and lead the next wave of business acceleration in the economy. in today’s network.

Mendix Industry Clouds offers a digital transformation model in key industries, from manufacturing to financial services, public sector, retail and healthcare.

A highlight of Roos Mendix World’s announcements was the extension of the flagship all-in-one Low-Code platform with Industrial clouds, bringing together industry best practices, reusable templates, industry partners, customers and a vibrant developer community for each key industry.

Customers, implementation partners and industry experts will be able to share approaches, best practices and successes, forming an industry-driven low-code community. Starting with Mendix for manufacturing industries and Mendix for financial services, each cloud includes a rich set of building blocks and specific components to address the challenges faced in this industry, including connectors to data sources and record systems, APIs, AppServices, workflows, models and adaptive solutions.

Peter Hugues, Application Development Manager at Corant Global Insurance, said: “Mendix Industry Clouds address a key market need. Everyone develops solutions independently of each other. This approach allows us to join a community that shares the use of best practices, common models, and adaptation of standards.

Roos also introduced several new models of solutions specific to Mendix World. These model-based solutions can be easily extended and customized to create customer experiences that align with each organization’s brand and differentiation. For the financial industry, Mendix introduces model solutions for credit scoring, claims management and portfolio management. Responding to the needs of manufacturers, Mendix is ​​launching solution models for intelligent warehousing, predictive maintenance and intelligent workforce planning to kickstart the digitization process.

“Adaptive solutions for manufacturing industries enable our customers to achieve value throughout the lifecycle of digital business process threads,” said Raffaello Lepratti, Mendix vice president for manufacturing industries. manufacturing. “Typically, these efforts span areas as disparate as engineering, operations, field services, factory automation, and customer and supplier teams. The adaptive solutions we offer allow customers to maximize the value of respective base investments in all areas without high or specialized maintenance costs. skill.”

Additional vertical industrial clouds targeting the public sector, education and healthcare are expected to be launched next year.

Activate the ecosystem with platform investments

To accelerate the ever-growing reach of the Mendix marketplace and ensure that independent software vendors, partners and top service providers can easily bring components and solutions to market, Mendix is ​​announcing several extensions to its platform, including AppServices Framework and Solutions Platform.

AppServices are the cornerstone of composability – assembly – that organizations seek to alleviate some of the pressure on software development. To this end, Roos announced the delivery of new Mendix AppServices, including automated document processing, cognitive / AI services, and messaging capabilities. For organizations wishing to produce their own services as capabilities on the Mendix Marketplace, Mendix has announced the AppServices framework, which includes the supply, metering, billing and security necessary for a commodity seamlessly and securely. In this way, Mendix fosters a dynamic business exchange between corporate clients and low-code creators.

For ISVs and industry leaders who wish to offer adaptive solutions within the Mendix ecosystem, Mendix announced the Solutions platform. In addition to integrated metering and billing, the solutions platform also includes IP protection, scalability and maintainability. These capabilities provide a simple and secure way for manufacturers to deliver their solutions to more than 250,000 Mendix developers. Uniquely, the solutions offered via this platform can be adapted by the partner or the client who acquires them, without risk to the underlying IP. This, together with AppServices, allows developers to assemble, customize, and extend solutions to meet their unique business needs.

The beginning of the end for prescriptive SaaS solutions

Mendix’s model-based abstraction, unprecedented collaboration between business experts and IT professionals, and streamlined cloud deployment have already accelerated software delivery by a factor of ten or more. To compete in today’s dynamic, digitally-driven economy, organizations must sort through a myriad of avenues promising faster ways to deploy high-value solutions. The answer, according to Roos: low-code development with adaptive, cutting-edge building blocks and solutions.

“With new scalable adaptive solutions that can be quickly assembled from reusable components, we believe fixed and prescriptive SaaS applications are a thing of the past,” said Roos. “A shift to digitally-driven engagement requires highly personalized experiences for customers and employees. Rigid off-the-shelf software will not meet the expectations of customers or team members or deliver real business value. “

Roos added, “The combination of Mendix vertical industrial clouds, platform solutions and new application services, touching every corner of our ecosystem, enables Mendix manufacturers to deliver more relevant solutions faster than ever. . Businesses can kickstart their innovation process by leveraging the ecosystem of a much larger, controlled, and highly accomplished number of low-code code makers. The principles of low-code code have been widely recognized as force multipliers. They will continue to guide and hold us accountable for the decade to come. “
