In their own words

Laser focus to succeed: What makes Mendix such an exciting company to be a part of is that we deliver the collaboration, agility, speed, integration with emerging technology, and laser focus on employee and customer requirements that enterprises need to succeed.

Ready for hypergrowth: As CFO, I sit in a unique position to watch both Mendix and our customers reach a new phase of hypergrowth. We are continuing to expand our footprint across Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific, bringing digital transformation to the masses. Mendix is positioned right in the sweet spot where the future of enterprise software development is playing out.

Moving beyond the market pressures: Market pressures are compelling enterprises to accelerate their digital transformation efforts. In the past, digital transformation sat squarely within the domain of IT departments and every technology advancement created a massive backlog of digitalization projects. But with proper governance, low-code unlocks untapped potential for more employees to get in the game and leverage their expertise to drive business-critical application development in parallel with larger IT-driven transformation projects. Low-code is an equalizer.
