Digital transformation refers to the application of digital technology across all aspects of our lives. And as we all become accustomed to digital technology, organizations are now racing to embrace new technology and deliver the right digital solutions. But achieving digital transformation takes time. You need a programmatic approach to tackling various organizational challenges without dropping the ball on existing systems of operations. With Mendix, you have a faster path to drive digital transformation throughout your organization.
Organizations who can’t transform into a digital enterprise will struggle. In fact, 4 out of 10 companies will be dead in 10 years if they fail to digitize, a phenomenon called digital Darwinism. This stark reality comes at a time when competition and market volatility are at their highest. You adapt, or your business dies out.
Mendix’s application Platform as a Service creates a ‘fast lane’ within your organization to drive digital transformation. Our platform allows you to augment existing IT efforts through a small, cross-functional team and quickly test new ideas and iterate toward the perfect digital solution. By avoiding traditional hierarchy and focusing a small group of business and IT people on delivering new digital solutions quickly, your organization can achieve greater results. Gartner refers to this two-lane development concept as a bimodal IT strategy, where digital transformation can be achieved in a low risk way.
Our application platform’s success comes from our signature visual modeling capabilities and business logic workflows. These components make it easy for business and IT groups to collaborate through a common language across the entire application lifecycle.

Customer, partner or supplier engagement
