About the company
Mendix was founded in 2005, and has been changing the world of developing and delivering business applications ever since. Mendix combines an innovative model driven development platform with an agile project approach, to enable business analysts to play an active role in developing new business applications. In addition, Mendix allows them to respond to a changing environment by empowering flexible continuous delivery of these applications. Software is built using visual models in a graphic interface.
