The Story

In the early 2000s, Roald Kruit was working as a freelance software developer when he noticed a pattern: His clients were never 100% happy with the result. His coding skills were up to any challenge, but Roald’s end users still found faults. And he wasn’t the only one—other freelance developers were coming up against the same issue.

Even with the best intentions and long hours working to build exactly what was requested, the applications somehow missed the mark. Maybe the UX wasn’t as expected or maybe the entire application couldn’t meet the evolving needs of the customer. Whatever the issue, change requests and rework were slowing down the software development lifecycle, and Roald and other developers were quickly starting to feel burnout

Our founders—Roald, Derek Roos, and Derckjan Kruit—realized these applications weren’t failing for technical reasons. It wasn’t a problem of coding, but of communication. Developers didn’t understand the business, and business users didn’t understand development.

There had to be a way to bridge this gap while accelerating the development process—and our founders set out to create it.

The recurring problem was clear: Waterfall development was too slow and siloed, and developers and clients were never on the same page. The industry needed a more transparent, collaborative way for everyone to rapidly and continuously translate ideas into value-driving applications.

The first Mendix platform established a common visual development language and helped novice and professional developers validate requirements before coding even started. Our founders believed that incorporating visual tools—like flowcharts and UI mockups—into the discovery and design phases would help non-technical folks better communicate their ideas throughout the entire development process.

As we gathered feedback and continued enhancing the platform, Mendix evolved to include model-driven development, AI and ML tools, cloud-native capabilities, unlimited extensibility, and other features that support the entire SDLC. Little did we know that Mendix was on the precipice of the low-code revolution.

Today, Mendix is recognized as an industry leader by Gartner, Forrester, and our countless partners and customers. And our mission remains the same: To continuously evolve the platform to best serve the enterprise.

What does “Mendix” mean?
