Mendix informs us that its Mendix platform is now optimized for the IBM Cloud. The company claims to be the only cloud-native, enterprise low code development platform that can be integrated with IBM Cloud Services.

The Mendix architecture now offers full support for Kubernetes containerization for the IBM ecosystem. This also means that Mendix low code application developers now have easy access to the functions of Watson. The announcement was made during the IBM Think 2019 conference which takes place this week in San Francisco.

App development to cloud market

The idea behind this cooperation between Mendix and IBM is to bring the drag-and-drop low code application development to the enterprise cloud market. According to Ern Rorive, Mendix’s senior product manager, Watson’s AI functionality can also be used for large numbers of users and to accelerate innovation.

Mendix has optimized the following components for the IBM Cloud infrastructure on its platform:

  • Wider access to IBM Cloud Services: The integration of Mendix’s low code app development and its application with Watson’s AI functionality ensures that business customers can experiment with AI services. They also have access to content from the Weather Channel, App ID and App Launch on the IBM Cloud.
  • Full support for Kubernetes: Integrated support for Kubernetes container management is now part of the cloud-native architecture of Mendix. Native support for Kubernetes enables streamlined management and application in public, private and hybrid clouds. Thanks to the integration with IBM Cloud and the Mendix platform, organizations can save on IT overhead through horizontal scalability and effortless management when migrating legacy systems or creating new cloud-native microservices features.
  • Single Sign-on: The platform integration ensures a pleasant user experience for all Mendix low code applications. With just one click, these are added to IBM’s Cloud catalogue of third party vendors. This allows customers to deploy and monitor business-critical applications in a single IBM dashboard that requires no other logins and passwords.
  • Easy payment with IBM Cloud: Thanks to the new streamlined financial platform, customers receive only one invoice for services they purchase via the IBM Cloud. By adding the Mendix platform to IBM Cloud catalogue, customers can quickly get started with Mendix low code application development. By using their IBM Cloud Credits, they can quickly achieve commercial benefits at the lowest total cost of ownership.
