Building upon Mendix World 2014, the company’s biggest community event, Mendix has experienced strong growth within its ecosystem of partners, system integrators, strategy consultants and ISVs.

This ecosystem, with thousands of highly skilled developers and consultants, is delivering custom applications faster, easier and at lower costs than traditional development methods.
Pal Natarajan, CEO of Bodhtree: “We’re building out our healthcare and life sciences practice with the help of Mendix. Our deep domain knowledge, combined with the rapid development capabilities of the Mendix platform, will help accelerate the delivery of vertical solutions for managing and optimizing key business processes.”

The ability to deliver full-scale, back-end integrated applications extremely rapidly enables Pegamento’s customers to swiftly shift focus from using and maintaining applications to an intelligent customer centric approach. The ability to then extend this intelligence to websites and mobile devices is key in delivering what the organizations of today, and tomorrow, need to stay ahead of competition.”
Michael Guido, CEO of Kinetech: “We partnered with Mendix because the Mendix App Platform allows our consultants and system architects to rapidly innovate to deliver real results for our customers.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
