Mendix Introduces Academic License Program

Rotterdam, Netherlands (PressExposure) April 06, 2009 -- Mendix provides the tools and methodology to dramatically accelerate the development of new business applications. The Mendix platform allows business analysts to represent business requirements using precise visual models, which become executable components, without the need to write (or test) code. The result is that the cooperation between business and IT is optimized.

Mendix CEO Derek Roos explains: "We believe that automation of business processes is to be done in close cooperation between business and IT. Unfortunately, most software simply is too technical to be used by business analysts.

As we see it, today's business students are the developers of tomorrow. "
