Rapid Application Development Tools
Rapidly design, build, deploy and manage multi-channel enterprise apps, all within one seamless cloud environment. Mendix’s rapid application development tools empower both developers and business users to build apps 6 times faster and more flexibly than with traditional methods of development.
Mendix’s rapid application development tools produce higher quality apps
Rapid application development tools deliver better software results within a shorter timeline, allowing the business to achieve ROI faster. There are three main components that enable IT teams to rapidly develop better applications:
Support across the entire application lifecycle
While many application development tools focus on one step—deployment, Mendix speeds each stage of the cycle, facilitating a more iterative, flexible process that allows organizations to adapt to changing requirements.
Democratization of app development
Traditional development methods require programmers who know how to work with specific programming languages. Alternatively, Mendix’s rapid application development software abstracts away from code, allowing a wider variety of users with domain expertise to participate in the development process, increasing the overall developer population.
Collaboration between IT and Business
Improving developer productivity alone only marginally impacts the success of IT projects. Rapid application development tools prioritize IT and business collaboration through project management features, visual development tools, and end user feedback mechanisms, ensuring that each project is focused on producing high-quality results.
