Gartner 2023 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms

Mendix is recognized as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms, and continues to be recognized as the trailblazer in this rapidly maturing market by being placed best for Completeness of Vision for the fourth straight year.

Low-code application development has entered the mainstream for enterprises looking to modernize and digitally transform successfully.

Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms (MXDP)

According to this recent Gartner report,

“Multiexperience development platforms provide software engineering teams with a productive way to create rich, interconnected user experiences across web, mobile, conversational, digital twin, IoT and AR applications.”
