A thousand thank yous: Mendix a February 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise hpaPaaS
Donna Williams / March 6, 2019
We here at Mendix are excited to announce that we’ve been recognized as a February 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service (hpaPaaS). This distinction is important to us because it tells us what our customers think of us.
The great thing about this distinction is that it’s not really about Mendix; it’s about you, our customers. We take great pride in this distinction and are honored to have been named and recognized. So we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who submitted reviews and keep us one of the highly reviewed hpaPaaS providers in the market today.
What is the Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice?
Most distinctions like this are a result of a company’s overall rating, determined by an analyst, someone who may have never used our product. This is different. As Gartner explains, “The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings.” In other words, this rating is determined by you and your peers.
The distinction is no small feat, either. This is the criteria:
- A vendor must have 50 or more approved ratings
- Vendors must have an average rating of 4.2 stars or more
Reviews survey customers’ overall experience with the product and how it’s integrated and deployed and elicits feedback on the experience with the vendor.
There’s a lot to consider in these reviews. This is why we want to thank you. The honest, inspiring stories and reviews that you’ve shared are the reason why we are one of the highly rated providers in the hpaPaaS and low-code platform market today.
What are people saying?
“Easy to use” was the main theme in the review from a Change Lead at a healthcare company.
What did this person like most about Mendix?
The platform itself. Laid out in a way that is easy to use with customization options that allow you to tailor the working environment exactly how you need.
Thank you! It’s wonderful to see people easily building apps that are being used in every facet of the business.
A CIO in the energy and utilities industry cited how “the overall job market is not saturated with experienced developers.” It’s difficult to drive innovation and get results fast when you don’t have the people in place. Mendix makes it an easy transition from traditional programming techniques, so they could drive new business.
The product is at the heart of our digital delivery and has accelerated our speed to market for new channels.
Thank you! It’s great to hear that you’re creating new business and pleased with the ease of use.
A system consultant in the manufacturing industry was looking for a platform that helped “improve business process agility and outcomes.” What they found in Mendix was a way to create “good-looking, usable, mobile applications for [their] business” and said that “the bootstrap front-end delivers a very professional-looking interface for the customer with minimal effort.”
Mendix puts the fun back into application development.
Thank you! It’s nice to hear that not only are you able to deliver professional-looking apps with fewer resources, but you’re having fun doing it. We’re having fun too!
A senior software developer who has been a long-time Mendix user said that “Many years ago, it was the availability of documentation and online resources. Since then the community has grown and the availability of documentation and learning resources has also grown tremendously.” This is important, especially when working with a spectrum of developers—those with programming experience and those without. The developer states, “The platform provides a unique ability to develop apps rapidly from the ground up with little coding involved.”
Ideas can be turned into working programs in hours or weeks.
Thank you! It’s great to hear confirmation that our learning resources are effective across a broad range of programming experiences!
What is Mendix saying?
We’ve already said it but it’s worth mentioning again (and again, and again). Thank you!
We’re extremely proud of this distinction but honored and humbled by your reviews. Your feedback fuels everything we do at Mendix and helps us shape our product and the way we deliver it. If you’re so inclined, please continue to submit reviews to Peer Insights and other end-user review sites like TrustRadius and G2Crowd.
