BOSTON, July 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mendix, the leading cloud platform for low-code and AI-assisted app delivery, today announced its largest quarter ever, with 88 percent year-over-year bookings growth compared to the first half of 2017.
"Our customers are recognizing the enormous value they derive from the enterprise-wide adoption of our platform," said Derek Roos, CEO and co-founder of Mendix. "As the Low-Code market matures, we're seeing more enterprises create large, complex, core systems using our platform, and I'm excited to see our focus on enabling our customers' success deliver strong growth across all our regions."

High-productivity aPaaS solutions provide rapid application development (RAD) features for development, deployment and execution — in the cloud. Gartner predicts that "by 2020, at least 50% of all new business applications will be created with high-productivity toolsets."1
Highlights of the first half include:
A recent customer review on G2 Crowd states, "Mendix, unlike other platforms, has a firm focus on accelerating business and development. Where others have a more development orientated focus, Mendix gives more tools to organize and collaborate. So by adopting this platform, you not only accelerate development, you also allow your business to align with this capability. They also provide services to design and execute your digital practice which makes them so much more than just another platform."
