Everything you need to build applications, all in a single platform
Unmatched developer experience
Based on the principles of model-driven development, Mendix provides a single IDE where all skill levels thrive. From creating data models to integrations, developers can build with confidence and take on complex tasks with ease.
- Access the Mendix Marketplace, utilize AWS connectors, and build extensions for third-party tools.
- Integrate with other external or internal systems and services with REST connectors, database connectors, and Event Brokers/Business Events capabilities.
- Work comfortably with light and dark modes.
- Customize the platform to your enterprise needs with the Model SDK and platform APIs.
- Collaborate with other developers using Git-based version control.
- Increase application quality with automated testing and debugging.
Enhanced AI/ML capabilities
Build and deliver smart applications with intelligent, contextualized, and proactive user experiences. Mendix is AI-enhanced with virtual co-developer bots to streamline processes, and is the first LCAP to support embedded machine learning models versus API-based integration.
Our AI-assisted development includes three specialized virtual co-developer bots: MxAssist Logic Bot, MxAssist Best Practice Bot, and MxAssist Data Validation Bot. From identifying and fixing issues to automating tasks and providing recommendations, each bot helps both beginner and experienced developers build and innovate faster.
- The Mendix ML Kit
Embed AI models into smart applications without the need for third-party hosted services. The Mendix ML Kit helps developers bridge the gap between AI frameworks and low-code, enabling enterprises to deliver ML-enhanced smart applications faster and easier than ever before.
Powerful tools for team development
Mendix keeps teams and projects aligned with the most robust low-code collaboration and communication tools.
- Portfolio Management
Capture, prioritize, track, and assess the value of the initiatives in your portfolio. Mendix Portfolio Management helps enterprises mitigate risk, maximize value, and ensure alignment with business and IT goals.
- App Insights
App Insights measure the impact of an application with tools to gather and process end-user feedback. Use Mini Surveys to ask end users questions, collect experience ratings, and gather NPS scores. End users can also report issues and share ideas via the Feedback Management Model.
- Collaborative project spaces
In the Mendix Developer Portal, each application lives in its own central project space with tools for collaboration, Agile project management, backlog management, feedback management, and DevOps.
- Agile project management
Manage projects easily with built-in tools for Agile project management methodologies like Kanban and Scrum. Mendix enables teams to create, refine, and prioritize user stories collaboratively using conversation threads.
Cloud-native development and deployment
All applications developed with Mendix are cloud-native, containerized, and portable by default. Developers have the freedom and flexibility to deploy and scale anywhere — public, private, hybrid clouds, or on-premises.
With this flexibility, Mendix applications benefit from auto-provisioning, auto-healing, low infrastructure overhead, CI/CD support, and cloud interoperability.
- Deploy to any cloud, on-premise environment, or edge device.
- Scale for growth without rearchitecting or redesigning.
- Incorporate existing DevOps practices or create your own.
- Migrate easily from one cloud provider to another.
Modern, cross-platform UI and UX
Create offline-first native mobile applications, PWAs, and responsive web applications. With Mendix, it’s easy to deliver consistent, engaging multi-channel experiences across web, mobile, wearable, conversational, and immersive touch points.
- Responsive applications across touchpoints
Build native iOS and Android applications, progressive web applications (PWAs), web-based portals, IoT-enabled smart applications, and beyond — all in a single platform.
- Bespoke UX
Accelerate development with pre-built and reusable models, templates, widgets, and components. The Mendix Atlas UI design language empowers teams to create intuitive UI and UX or build a unique design language with the Atlas UI framework.
Customize and extend both the Mendix platform and your applications without limitations. Out of the box, the platform and applications are open and extensible at every level, enabling teams to tailor Mendix to enterprise needs and extend application capabilities.
- Extend the platform with APIs and integrate existing tools, CI/CD pipelines, and test automation suites
- Integrate third-party tools, migrate, adjust, and analyze Mendix Models programmatically with Mendix Model SDK
- Leverage open AI/ML models with the Mendix Machine Learning Kit
Universal access to data
Quickly find, understand, and use your data in a connected ecosystem. Mendix empowers enterprises to quickly and securely share data across projects and teams.
- Monitor data activity, including what system is retrieving what data
- Build reusable components and microservices fast with seamless access to data
- Ensure that data is used securely and consistently with Mendix Connect External Entities
- Visualize data with charting capabilities or by connecting Mendix to your existing BI tools
- Control your data with Mendix Connect
Locate metadata, connect applications and BI tools to the right datasets, and ensure data consistency throughout your organization. In the Mendix Connect Catalog, teams can describe data sources, assign business and technical ownership, and tag data sources appropriately.
- Integrate external data with standard protocols
Mendix supports integrations with your existing data sources and services through industry-standard interfaces and protocols — REST, SOAP, MQTT, JDBC, ODBC, BAPI, OPC, and OData — enabling developers to connect to systems like Oracle, Salesforce, MS Dynamics, SAP, AWS, and others.
Trusted security and governance
Mendix is equipped with the most trusted security and governance tools and controls of any LCAP.
Out-of-the-box features include standard DevOps and governance tools and services, plus automated quality monitoring, consistency checks, and testing. You can also bring your own identification provider (BYOIdP) to better secure your data, and automate third-party CI/CD pipelines with the Mendix Webhooks API.
- Control access levels
Maintain full control over who is allowed access and what they can do in the platform.
- Tailor your DevOps
Use our built-in DevOps tools or implement custom practices with the platform’s open tooling.
- Govern without limits
Set up guardrails with user-based security, version control, and a comprehensive admin suite.
Intelligent process automation
Modernize operations and create flexible processes and workflows at speed and scale. Workflows are native to the logic capabilities of the Mendix platform, giving teams the ability to visually add complex business logic to processes without writing code.
Developers can take it further by building and extending fully functional workflow applications, applying advanced logic, integrating with any system, and creating reusable workflow components.
- Modernize legacy processes and build new digital, automated workflows
- Design seamless, scalable, automated workflows and modernize manual and legacy processes
- Ensure that all processes meet internal and external compliance requirements
