BOSTON – March 27, 2017Mendix, the fastest and easiest platform for Rapid Application Development, announced today that Forrester Research has ranked the company as a Leader in the new report, The Forrester Wave™ Mobile Low-Code Development Platforms, Q1 2017.” The Mendix platform provides a comprehensive, integrated set of tools to accelerate the entire application lifecycle, helping enterprises to realize unmatched time to value.

Mendix was named a Leader based on Forrester’s assessment of the current offering, strategy, and market presence of 11 Mobile Low-Code Development Platforms. In the evaluation, Mendix tied for the highest scores in 11 criteria, including mobile offline; data access and management; content and collaboration; deployment options; quality assurance and feedback management; versioning, deployment, and app store support; security controls and app management; and app scaling and performance.

According to the report, “The Mendix platform includes mobile capabilities that are frequently sought by tech management teams, such as an embedded enterprise app store, flexible deployment options, and broad reporting capabilities. Mendix makes extensive use of declarative tooling to create and deliver applications and drive integration.” The report continues, “One customer reference has built more than 60 apps in the last two years, which would have been impossible with traditional development tools and the resources on staff.”

“We believe our recognition as a Leader in Mobile Low-Code Development space reflects our vision to deliver the most comprehensive platform on the market,” said Gordon Van Huizen, VP of Platform Strategy at Mendix. “Unlike other low-code tools that focus too narrowly on the build phase, Mendix’s integrated platform supports the complete application lifecycle, enabling enterprises to build and continuously improve a portfolio of mobile and web applications that enable business transformation.”

Mobile Low-Code Development Platforms Close the Developer Gap

Forrester describes Mobile low-code development platforms as “products go beyond general-purpose low-code development platforms by including features closely associated with mobile infrastructure services platforms or mobile middleware products, including support for mobile notifications, enterprise mobile management tools, and support for offline caching and filtering of data when devices aren’t connected.” The report notes that mobile low-code development platforms help close the developer gap facing many enterprises by expanding the pool of mobile development talent and accelerating the efforts of professional mobile developers.
