Mendix, the leading provider of enterprise class platform-as-a-service (PaaS), today announced the release of version 3.0 of its Agile Business Platform. The new release simplifies the full agile application lifecycle management process by further enabling rapid development, deployment and management of enterprise applications in the cloud.

With over 20,000 users worldwide, the Mendix Agile Business Platform is a complete solution for developing and deploying enterprise applications.  Mendix customers development their apps five to ten times faster than traditional development. Mendix bridges the gap between business and IT and decreases time-to-market by enabling users to rapidly develop, deploy and manage applications that smoothly integrate with any existing system.

With Version 3.0, Mendix’s agile solution further delivers on its speed and flexibility by simplifying the deployment and management of multiple Mendix applications. By providing a centralized, cloud-based Management Dashboard to monitor application performance and activity, IT departments now have complete control over their cloud application landscape, regardless of where the application is running.

“Mendix 3.0 allows your business to keep up with the pace that competitive markets demand” said Rob Boomsma, Practice Manager at Capgemini, a Mendix partner. “It is business smart and user centric; delivering speed to market and business-IT collaboration into a powerful package. This, combined with the track record that Mendix has earned over the past six years, makes the version 3.0 release excellent news to Capgemini and our clients.”

The new version also includes a cloud-based Team Server for supporting teams as small as a single developer up to globally distributed teams.  The Team Server will enable development teams to collaborate on the same project and provide them with several new features, including advanced version control and structured release management.

“Version 3.0 of the Mendix platform delivers increased business agility to our customers,” said Derek Roos, CEO of Mendix.  “Mendix is on the leading edge of helping business units and IT departments collaborate effectively and build enterprise-class applications. We’ve simplified the application lifecycle management process, while still providing the infrastructure needed to deliver extremely complex cloud-based applications.”

This announcement closely follows Mendix’s launch of sprintr, the world’s first social project collaboration site dedicated to simplifying employee communications, across enterprise project teams. Fully integrated with Mendix 3.0, sprintr completes the full application lifecycle management process, with its agile project management functionality, as well as its built-in user feedback module that can be easily embedded in any website or web-based application.
