Collaboration Overview

Continuous, Collaborative Development

Support cross-functional collaboration with the Mendix low-code development platform

Break down
collaboration barriers

Enterprise development teams need to build and deploy more applications faster. The key to making that possible is sustainable, functional collaboration between business and IT. But that’s often easier said than done. Enterprises working with siloed development processes face significant barriers to successful application development.

  • Developer shortage

    There aren’t enough professional developers to meet demand. And the global shortage is expected to reach 4 million in 2025.

  • Business-IT friction

    When IT lives in a backlog, business teams seek software alternatives that can lead to shadow IT and security and governance risks.

  • Unexpected costs

    Communication inefficiencies are pricey. In the U.S., poor software quality cost businesses at least $2.41 trillion in 2022.

Power innovation
with collaborative low-code development

With the collaborative tools and processes found in low-code development platforms, enterprise teams are better equipped to:

  • Improve team interactions by involving stakeholders throughout every stage of the application development lifecycle.
  • Accelerate time to market by reducing rework, improving communication, and increasing feedback cycles.
  • Make space for innovation by eliminating drains on resources and encouraging teams to think of and act on new ideas.
  • Increase adoption by involving end users at every stage. Listen to and incorporate their feedback at smaller intervals.
