Mendix, CLEVR and Magnus Black Will Demonstrate the Transformational Power of Modern Enterprise Software Development in the Retail Sector at NRF

BOSTON and NEW YORK – January 12, 2023Mendix, a Siemens business and global leader in modern enterprise application development, today announced that it will be demonstrating a new way to fast-track enterprise transformation using power of modern application development in retail with the help of application solution and services company CLEVR and retail solution provider Magnus Black.

NRF 2023 Retail’s Big Show attracts executives and IT leaders from retail organizations. This year, the conference will feature more than 150 sessions by retailers and vendors highlighting innovations and learnings from the past year.

Mendix and CLEVR will demonstrate the Mendix Digital Lifecycle Management for Fashion and Retail solution in booth #4151 which enables retailers to accelerate their development process from concept to commerce, transform towards a demand-led model and improve collaboration between internal teams and suppliers. It reduces time to market and enables sustainable business practices. The Mendix DLM for Fashion and Retail allows stakeholders to collaborate on products and drastically reduces physical sampling.

Mendix DLM is a cloud native PLM solution that utilizes low-code technology to connect traditionally siloed software and processes, which reduces digital waste, redundancy, migration hassles and extensive training.

“Mendix DLM enables one-click deployments, multi-experience capabilities and the ability to integrate with any data source, making it the ideal way to collaborate across suppliers, manufacturers, brands and retailers,” said Maarten de Vries, SAP program management at Mendix.

Magnus Black will showcase its OIL Order Magic order management solution which the company built using the Mendix platform. This omnichannel integration layer delivers a seamless customer experience across selling and fulfillment channels by managing orders, customers and inventory in one place. The solution has been recognized by Gartner in the latest Market Guide for Retail Distributed Order Management Systems.

Siemens Digital Industry Software (DI SW) representatives will be on-site to answer questions.

“NRF is the leading event for retailers, industry analysts and retail vendors and the theme this year is ‘Breakthrough,” said Erika Arena, global retail industry principal at Mendix. “One of the biggest breakthroughs in retail in 2023 will be the broader replacement of traditional software development practices with modern enterprise application development. Retailers need low-code, reusability, and composability because it allows them to create digital solutions faster than the speed of business and customer expectations, which is imperative in today’s volatile economic climate. Our job is to help retail organizations prepare for the future, whatever it may bring.”
