Rapid application development

More rapid application development to stay agile in the digital age.

Getting started with Rapid Application Development

How can you make sure that you can quickly respond to technological developments and swiftly develop applications that will immediately help your business? Rapid Application Development is the answer.

How can you keep your business applications up to date?

IT is facing the challenge of keeping up with these developments. This is not always easy. Application development tends to be costly and time-consuming. IT projects often take so long to complete that adjustments are necessary by the time they go live. IT capacity often stays the same, which leaves no room to meet all the requirements. However, organisations don't stand still, so the business often resorts to shadow applications that are not supported by the IT department. This makes you lose your control over your IT environment, so how can you prevent this from happening?

Rapid Application Development (RAD) solutions

Rapid Application Development (RAD) makes application development more accessible and significantly faster. RAD shortens the development process from months to weeks or even days. Smart, low-code application development shifts the emphasis from coding to modelling by using practical building blocks. Rapid Application Development enables you to bring your application landscape in line with your organisation's needs. This results in five main benefits:

  • Low code: prevent repetitive coding by using building blocks that are easy to adjust.
  • Bridge the gap between the business and IT: develop applications in a single environment for both the business and IT to foster collaboration.
  • Stay in control of your applications: build custom applicati ons in one central location and stay in control of the entire environment.
  • Flexibility and independence: easily customise your applications and meet rapidly changing business requirements.
  • Speed: develop long-lasting apps in a structured way quickly.

The most complete Rapid Application Development platform

Mendix accelerates the building process and the entire application life cycle from design to the build, testing and deployment. The business and IT share a single project environment in order to share insights and shape the application. Mendix enables users to easily develop applications by modelling pre-packaged elements, instead of having developers write code again and again. When users hit certain limitations, a Mendix developer can adapt the application within the same platform with more advanced tools. Mendix therefore offers no-code, low-code and code in a single solution.
