Mendix is experiencing rapid growth. Tim Srock (photo), who succeeded Derek Roos as CEO six months ago, leads Mendix into the next phase of hypergrowth, showing his vision and focus for the time to come. According to Srock, Mendix belongs to the heart of the software stack. He has a broader vision for Mendix, placing the company at the center of an ecosystem that responds to the many critical demands of the digital-first economy. In the short term, the focus is on hyper-automation for greater operational efficiency and hyper-personalization for good customer experiences.
Since Srock joined Mendix, first as CFO, later as CEO, the company has more than tripled in both staff and revenue. “Our strategy for the future is clear,” says Srock. “We are solidly established as a leader in low-code. Now we are leveraging that leadership to build a great ecosystem and take our place as the platform that helps companies transform. We position ourselves at the center of enterprise application development and as the ideal platform for virtually any industry. “
The Mendix ecosystem includes a fast-growing Mendix-affiliate program. This program is designed to drive growth by focusing on technology and go-to-market collaborations that make it faster and easier to build low-code solutions.
An example of this is the expansion of the partnership between Mendix and Amazon Web Services (AWS), which was recently announced by making the Mendix low-code platform available in the AWS market. For example, AWS customers have access to smart automation solutions in various sectors such as financial services and the manufacturing industry.
New and expanded collaborations
Mendix is also expanding its partnership with go-to-market partners such as Dutch CLEVR, which helps organizations get off to a flying start on their Mendix journey. CLEVR also builds its own applications for customers with Mendix.
In addition, the Mendix ecosystem includes the Mendix Academy, App Factory, Digital Execution Practice, and a committed community of 50 million licensed users. In 2021 alone, 230,000 developers and more than 300 certified partners have built 120,000 Mendix applications.
At Mendix World 2021, the company introduced new industrial clouds designed to boost the Mendix ecosystem, originally for manufacturing and financial services. The following are vertical clouds for the public sector, education and healthcare. The company also completed the acquisition of TimeSeries, a Dutch-born international IT service provider specializing in vertical solutions developed on the Mendix platform.
Mendix’s growth of more than 300% in annual recurring revenue (ARR) since the acquisition of Siemens includes growth across a wide range of vertical markets, from financial services and insurance to retail, transportation, public sector and manufacturing. The Mendix platform is a core component of Xcelerator, Siemens’ integrated portfolio of software and services. Customers use the platform to solve their challenges and drive digital transformation through low-code.
Mendix has added many clients to its portfolio, including Schaeffler, a global supplier to the automotive and industrial sectors. Other new customers include a large multinational conglomerate in the Philippines; a major transport and logistics company, also based in the Pacific; and an eight-digit agreement with one of the world’s largest car companies.
In 2021, the company expanded to China, Japan, Korea and Australia / New Zealand (ANZ). Mendix also strengthened its presence in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) and established its presence in the Middle East. It also expanded its European presence in France, Italy and the Scandinavian countries.
Mendix’s position is recognized by several analysts. For the fifth year in a row, Mendix was named Head of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Low-Code Enterprise Application Platforms and Head of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Multiexperience Development for the third year in a row. Mendix has also been a leader in Forrester Low-Code Wave for four consecutive years.
“Tim has been instrumental in achieving Mendix’s industry leadership and contributing to the success of the company,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, President and CEO of Siemens Digital Industries Software. “He understands the company and its culture, and he sees the enormous opportunities for Mendix. The world has changed dramatically in the last 24 months, and companies in virtually every industry need to make a U-turn to be relevant in the new digital-first economy. Tim is focused on giving Mendix the flexibility, solutions, new technology and employee and customer centrality that companies need to succeed. ”
