Benefits of Mendix’s Model-Driven Development (MDD) Platform
Model-Driven Development (MDD) has emerged as one of the leading approaches for enabling rapid, collaborative application development. Because model-driven development uses visual modeling techniques to define data relationships, process logic, and build user interfaces, model-driven software development empowers both developers and business users to rapidly deliver applications without the need for code. Consequently, model-driven development is significantly faster than traditional programming languages like C# and Java.
Mendix’s model-driven development platform enables speed and flexibility across the development life cycle. Specific benefits include:
- Execute functionality changes faster by removing the requirement of explicit regeneration, rebuild, retest and redeploy steps.
- Access an API layer within the platform to easily control model extensions with custom code
- Deploy easily by starting the runtime server and adding the model (the rest is automated with a single click)
- Access more flexible and dynamic application monitoring features and enable less technical developers to analyze and quickly debug through visual application models
Mendix’s application Platform as a Service utilizes model-driven development capabilities to significantly speed the delivery of custom software. Learn more about Mendix’s model-driven development capabilities.
