BOSTON – May 11, 2015 – Mendix, a leading enterprise application Platform-as-a-Service (aPaaS) provider, today announced it will showcase its open-standards, model-driven rapid application development capabilities at the 2015 Cloud Foundry Summit, May 11-12, 2015 in Santa Clara, Calif.
The Cloud Foundry Summit (#cfsummit) is the largest gathering of technology industry leaders, including application developers, IT operations experts, technical managers, line-of-business leaders, service providers and Cloud Foundry contributors.
Located at booth #128, Mendix will join the growing Cloud Foundry community to discuss how users can seamlessly leverage Mendix on top of their Cloud Foundry implementations, accelerating time-to-market for cloud-native applications. Mendix will showcase the union of rapid application development with the native cloud qualities of Cloud Foundry-based platforms by demonstrating the speed and agility of the Mendix Application Platform and one-click app deployment.
“While PaaS has democratized application deployment and management, developing cloud-native applications is still challenging and time-consuming,” said Johan den Haan, Mendix CTO. “We look forward to sharing Mendix’s breakthrough rapid application development approach with Cloud Foundry users and helping them help accelerate time to business value.”
Mendix has emerged as the leading rapid application development experience for customers and service providers adopting Cloud Foundry. Mendix enables a wider population of users—from pro developers to less-technical citizen developers—to build cloud-native applications without needing to code. Web and mobile applications can be visually modeled in Mendix at speeds six to 10 times faster than traditional programming approaches. With the Mendix Cloud Foundry Buildpack, these applications can now be deployed with just one click to any Cloud Foundry-based public, private and hybrid cloud stack.
A member of the Cloud Foundry Foundation and contributor to the open source project, Mendix has established partnerships that facilitate instant, one-click deployment to leading commercial Cloud Foundry installations, including HP Helion and Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
“Enterprises are looking for new ways to build applications in order to gain fast and meaningful business value. The addition of Mendix can help HP Helion customers create business applications rapidly,” said Bill Hilf, SVP, Helion Product Management, HP.
“Mendix brings powerful rapid application development capabilities to Pivotal Cloud Foundry, further enhancing enterprise agility and accelerating continuous delivery of innovative business solutions,” added James Watters, vice president and general manager, Cloud Platform Group, Pivotal
