Mendix 10 Designed to Transform Enterprise Low-code Market

Mendix, a Siemens business and global leader in modern enterprise application development, announced the general availability of Mendix 10, an iteration of the low-code platform.

Mendix 10 introduces a host of innovations that leverage the latest AI and machine learning capabilities; turbo-charge business-IT collaboration; streamline the developer experience; enable exquisite UI/UX design; expand cloud options; and tighten governance and control.

In short, Mendix 10 is designed to deliver greater innovation, speed, and efficiency to the enterprise digital transformation journey than has been possible to date.

“Mendix 10 was built for the modern business world and its breathtaking rate of change,” said Tim Srock, Mendix CEO. “We are delivering transformative industry-leading tools that help organizations become adaptive, digital-first enterprises. Essentially, we help organizations deliver value faster.”

Srock continued, “Mendix 10 is transformational. It gives companies the enterprise-grade tools they need to become digital-first regardless of where they are in their journey. Enterprise developers and ISVs can achieve superhuman levels of productivity and deliver exciting new applications and experiences that completely reshape how business is done.”

Mendix 10 was built by developers, for developers to revolutionize the way solutions are built. The new version provides a dark mode option and a restyled light mode version. It also includes bots that guide developers as they build solutions.

Major platform upgrades to the Mendix Assist bot family feature the introduction of the “Best Practice” bot. This bot is a valuable resource for developers, helping to ensure their apps conform with Mendix development best practices by identifying and highlighting development anti-patterns, providing precise indications of their location, and guiding developers on how to address and resolve them.

These AI-driven bots are designed to boost the productivity and efficiency of Mendix developers while optimizing the performance and quality of Mendix applications.

Embedded AI also automates routine work and helps developers handle complex tasks with ease and efficiency. Teams can create data models, define application logic, add workflows, design the UX, and integrate with other systems across a wide range of use cases and modalities.

Mendix 10 makes realizing the composable enterprise a reality by providing an ecosystem of pre-built and reusable models, templates, widgets, and components that are available in the Mendix Marketplace.

Developers can create their own building blocks, from microservices and components to a complete application portfolio. This modular approach maximizes application flexibility, scalability, and adaptability.

Mendix 10 includes tools and resources that make it easy for anyone — not just designers — to create a modern UI/UX. Since Mendix apps are open and extensible, teams can customize them to meet UI/UX requirements of a certain line of business or region. If there are specific UI/UX requirements, developers can extend reusable components built by the Mendix community and adapt and tailor partner-built commercial solutions, directly from the integrated development environment (IDE).
