For Second Consecutive Year, Gartner Positions Mendix as a Magic Quadrant Leader for Multiexperience Development Platforms
- Named a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for MXDP based on completeness of vision and ability to execute
- Ranks first in Modern Web/Progressive Apps in Gartner's Critical Capabilities
- News comes with just five weeks to go until Mendix World 2020, world's largest virtual low-code conference
BOSTON, July 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mendix, a Siemens business and the global leader in enterprise low-code, today announced that it has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms (Jason Wong, Adrian Leow, Arun Batchu, 7 July 2020) for the second consecutive year.
According to Gartner, a multiexperience development platform (MXDP) is a "foundational platform for developing digital apps and products that span multiple touchpoints and interaction modalities for customers, partners and employees. It enables product development teams to improve their delivery and to innovate by introducing 'composable experiences' to the front-end UX layer, in line with Gartner's vision for the future of applications." Specifically, to qualify for inclusion in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development Platforms, one of the criteria stipulated that a vendor's platform "should not require separate vendor involvement or services to generate or build any new custom binaries" and that "it should do the same for responsive web apps, as well as at least three of the following": progressive web apps, chatbots, voice apps, wearable and IoT apps, and AR and VR apps.
"At Mendix, we're passionate about helping our customers create and deliver memorable interactions and experiences using software, and we are thrilled that Gartner continues to recognize us for MXDP excellence," commented Mendix CEO Derek Roos. "The power of Mendix is to enable the broadest range of developers to apply their domain expertise to create differentiated experiences using software, and it's great to see our strategy continues to define our category."
The Gartner Magic Quadrant report further states, "By 2024, one in three enterprises will use an MXDP to increase the speed at which IT and business fusion teams work to deliver successful digital products."
Most Complete Low-Code Multiexperience Platform
The Critical Capabilities Report
Mendix was ranked highest for Modern/Progressive Web Apps and ranked second in Wearable IoT apps and third in Mobile Apps. According to Gartner, "Application leaders responsible for architecture, development, integration and platform strategies should maximize the value of the MXDP by disseminating mesh app and service architecture (MASA) best practices to promote unity of development practices and sharing of components and services. Begin incrementally replacing less productive development tools and frameworks by using an MXDP to supplement or augment them for rearchitectecting or replatforming applications, and investigate the software licensing for an MXDP, which may be complex given the variety of use cases, end users and developer personas that make use of the platform. Prepare for not realizing ROI until a high volume of users and platform usage is attained."
Enabling these high scores is MASA, which supports "composing" the user experience across any and all channels and is a leading underlying architecture – and one of the key benefits of –the MX low-code platform approach. This enables organizations to develop tailored user experiences with a cohesive and consistent user journey by maximizing the reuse of back-end services. It also simplifies the integration with existing IT landscapes and third-party (cloud) services.
