iTWireTV Interview: Mendix APAC VP, Jornt Moerland, explains why low-code is the engine of the enterprise digital landscape

GUEST INTERVIEW: In a digital-first world, having a low-code platform built on the pillars of abstraction, automation, cloud, and collaboration increased developer productivity, and empowers a legion of not-so-technical, ‘citizen’ developers to create apps guided by their particular domain expertise, facilitated by engineered-in collaborative capabilities and an intuitive visual interface.

Mendix. Recognised as a leader and visionary by industry analysts, its platform is cloud-native, open, extensible, agile, and proven.

From artificial intelligence and augmented reality to intelligent automation and native mobile, Mendix has become the backbone of digital-first enterprises, adopted by more than 4,000 leading companies in 46 countries.

In today’s world, customers want their every need anticipated, employees want better tools to do their jobs, and enterprises know that sweeping digital transformation is the key to survival and success.

Enterprises encountered imperatives to digitalise operations and customer interactions and support remote and hybrid work arrangements, accelerating low-code even faster to become the go-to technology for rapid solution development.

These imperatives redefined the way enterprises approach digitalisation both now and for the future, with advanced low-code platforms such as Mendix playing a pivotal role.

That’s why the Mendix low-code platform and comprehensive ecosystem continues seeing meteoric growth, integrating the most advanced technology to support solutions that boost engagement, streamline operations, deliver more value and relieve IT logjams.

To learn more about the low-code revolution, we spoke with Jornt Moerland, Regional Vice President – APAC at Mendix, with our video interview embedded immediately below, followed by a summary of the topics we spoke about, so please watch and read on!

  • I started by introducing Jornt, and asked him to tell us about Mendix, and when the company arrived in the ANZ market.
  • Jornt then told us about the Mendix platform and what makes it unique compared to other low-code platforms, as well as Mendix’s cloud native approach, benefits to the enterprise, and the types of apps its customers are creating.
  • We spoke about the skills shortage in the Australian IT industry, the emergence of “citizen development”, the app development process and how quickly developers – whether citizen developers or traditional developers – can get up to speed.
  • Jornt told us about Mendix customers in Australia, how he sees Mendix evolving over the next couple of years and the future of the low-code movement, memories of his first computer, great advice received in life, and his final message to iTWire viewers and readers, and to customers and partners, current and future.
