Global low-code and no-code app company, Mendix, has been named by IT research firm, Gartner, as the leader in its Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms. The coding corporation has also been placed furthest in the completion of vision and ability to execute, a title that they have been awarded 3 years in a row now.
In a report, Gartner spoke of the reason for acknowledging no or low code with such high esteem. It said: “By 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity. The enterprise LCAP market is growing strongly, due to continued demand for applications and a shortage of skilled developers. Low-code development is a natural evolution of rising abstraction levels in application development, which will eventually lead to viable cross-enterprise, highly scalable citizen development and composition of applications.”
Dealing with the growth of rapid software
“Delivering on rising demand for rapid software development takes more than just great tooling and technology,” said Johan den Haan, chief technology officer for Mendix.
He continued: “Platforms need to deliver comprehensive capabilities with an experience that is intuitive, efficient, and tailored to users’ needs. And having the right architecture — one that is well-equipped for multi-cloud and hybrid computing, and fully supports on-premises, virtual private multi-cloud, and multi-tenant public cloud deployment options — is essential.”
Mendix, a Seimens owned business, is able to provide low-code applications through combing a cloud-native architecture, full stack visual development capabilities, AI-assisted development, and an integrated set of tools for the complete application lifecycle.
On the positioning, Derek Roos, Mendix CEO says: “We believe Gartner positioned Mendix furthest for completeness of vision in this report for a number of reasons including our unified IDE approach, which further improves and enables the collaboration of IT and business, making Mendix one of the first enterprise LCAPs to offer a multi-persona developer experience in a single integrated platform,”
Roos added, “Our platform is designed with the ability to support both business developers in Mendix Studio and professional IT developers in Mendix Studio Pro…We believe we’ve worked hard to earn our position as a Leader in this important category and are thrilled to be recognized once again as having the leading market vision among all low code vendors.”
