Mendix Application Quality Monitor

Preventing the threat of building technical debt

Bimodal IT is a critical capability for organizations looking to digitize their business. According to Gartner, however, one of the top four mistakes organizations make when implementing bimodal is failing to maintain a disciplined focus on refactoring and managing technical debt. Hence the benefit of greater agility can turn into a maintenance nightmare in the long run.
Mendix addresses this challenge by providing a unique cloud service that helps customers prevent technical debt.

Application Quality Monitor

Proactively manage software maintainability

We all know that the cost of defects rises exponentially depending on the stage in the lifecycle. Wouldn’t it be great if you could manage the maintainability of your applications from the very early stages of development rather than refactoring in retrospective?

The Mendix Application Quality Monitor offers a dashboard providing instant insight on the quality of the application models you’re building. The industry-first cloud service leverages the groundbreaking metadata-based Model API, performing static analysis of application models by a best-of-breed engine from our partner SIG. There’s no better proof that you’re on the right track!

Application Quality Rating

The ISO standard for maintainability. Now applied on Mendix.

Mendix application models have been mapped by experts from SIG on the ISO 25010 standard for software maintainability. The service measures key aspects of maintainability for a set of parameters, and benchmarks your application against a database of thousands of projects on a scale from 1 to 5.

The Mendix Application Quality Monitor not only rates your application but highlights potential issues to be addressed.

Reduce Life Cycle Cost

Addressing the root cause pays off.

Research conducted by SIG shows there’s a strong correlation between the cost and effort of handling post-release issues and enhancements and the maintainability rating of an application. Issue resolution time and enhancement effort increase exponentially for applications with lower ratings.

While the average benchmark rating for applications is 3, SIG advises teams to strive for level 4 quality.

SIG Partnership

The power of an ecosystem

Mendix partners with SIG, an independent advisory firm for software quality and improvement. SIG has more than 15 years’ experience in applying the ISO 25010 standard and has built engines to mathematically proof software maintainability based on the ISO quality model.

The openness of the Mendix platform allowed us to define a unique and high-value proposition in close collaboration with SIG. That’s how customers benefit from the power of an ecosystem.

Both Mendix and SIG adhere to the highest information security standards. Mendix has obtained ISAE 3401 Type II assertion, and SIG’s services are ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified.
