Low-code: Mendix of Emendis Blueprint?

Introducing Mendix: Efficient application development

Mendix is a low-code development platform that helps organisations build, integrate and deploy enterprise applications quickly and efficiently. Using Mendix, users can develop applications with minimal manual coding, speeding up the development process and reducing time-to-market. With features such as integration capabilities with existing systems, full application lifecycle management, and team collaboration tools, Mendix meets the needs of organisations with scalability, security and performance as priorities.

What is low-code?

An MVP in software development is a basic version of a software application that includes the core functionality necessary to provide value to users. This means that instead of aiming for a perfect end product, developers focus on creating a working version that fulfills users’ basic needs. The goal is to quickly gather feedback and take further development steps based on that feedback.


1. Faster development:

Low-code platforms accelerate application development by reducing the amount of handwritten code. This enables rapid prototyping and deployment.

2. Accessibility:

They make application development accessible to non-technical users, such as business analysts, thus reducing the gap between IT and business operations.

3. Cost savings:

By reducing development time, organisations can save on development costs and resources.

4. Simple integrations:

Many low-code platforms offer out-of-the-box integrations with popular enterprise systems and services, simplifying the deployment of new applications in existing IT infrastructures.

5. Flexibility and scalability:

Low-code applications can be easily adapted to changing business needs and scaled up as usage increases.


1. Limitations in customisation:

While low-code platforms offer significant flexibility, they can impose limitations on customisation and complexity compared to traditional development.

2. Dependence on suppliers:

Using a low-code platform can make organisations dependent on the vendor for updates, security and new features.

3. Performance issues:

Applications built on low-code platforms can sometimes be less optimised for performance than handwritten applications, especially for complex or large-scale applications.

4. Security concerns:

While many platforms offer strong security features, easy access to application development can lead to a lack of rigorous security practices, especially among non-technical developers.

5. Long-term costs:

Although low-code development can be cost-effective initially, the licensing costs for the platform can add up in the long run, especially with large-scale use.

Discover the Emendis Blueprint

The Emendis Blueprint stands out as a hybrid low-code platform that combines the speed of low-code with the flexibility of traditional coding, creating an efficient and customisable development experience.

It offers the best of both worlds: rapid development for simple applications and the ability for deep customisation where needed. It reduces vendor dependency by allowing our developers to insert their own code, providing more control and less vendor lock-in.

Finally, the hybrid nature of Emendis Blueprint offers long-term cost-effectiveness by giving organisations the flexibility to evolve their applications without significant additional costs. In short, Emendis Blueprint is a powerful, flexible, and cost-effective solution for companies looking to reap the benefits of low-code without compromising on customisation and control.
