Conference goers will have numerous opportunities to network with peers, sponsors, and partners on the virtual expo floor.

One major enterprise that will make a repeat performance at Mendix World is Innovapost, the IT shared-services provider for Canada Post, the largest postal operator in Canada. CEO Franco Chirichella holds the reins of Innovapost’s $400 million operating budget and is responsible for delivering transformative technology to all Canada Post companies, including 350 applications and 20,000 IT changes a year.

More than 30 Mendix customers and partners will share first-hand accounts of how they are leveraging low-code to transform their businesses by creating powerful digital solutions in banking, insurance, manufacturing, logistics, higher education, retail, and government. Some of these customer presenters are:

  • NS, the Dutch national railway company: Built an app using Mendix that enabled its nine million yearly passengers across the Netherlands to schedule trips while having real-time visibility into how crowded the trains are.
  • The Municipality of Dubai: Used Mendix to digitize hundreds of paper-based governmental services for 36 departments and 13,000 employees, and then made these digital services available to 1.5 million users per month.
  • PostNL, the Netherlands’ national postal carrier that serves 17 million customers across the Benelux, built an order management system comprised of 62 microservices that process over 10 million daily transactions. This new system ensures the timely delivery of 1.3 million parcels per day.
  • Continental AG: The 232,000-employee-strong automotive supplier relied on Mendix to transform business domain experts into citizen developers who teamed up with professional developers to deliver applications like Electronic Capital Request, built in just 12 weeks, and automating budget requests and approvals for over 10,000 users..

“A large, inspired community is essential for any software platform to thrive,” said Mendix CEO and Cofounder Derek Roos. “Year after year, thousands of developers and IT and business leaders come together at Mendix World to share how they are creating solutions with low-code and build their low-code expertise. This kind of idea and innovation exchange goes on all year long in the Mendix community, but it reaches a new level of excitement and intensity at Mendix World. We look forward to welcoming ‘makers’ from around the world to assemble online with us. Whatever their level of experience with low-code, they’ll take away valuable new knowledge, ideas, and skills.”
