Leader: Mendix

This Boston-based company "is firing on all cylinders and about to accelerate its distribution," Forrester said.

Mendix is well-known to developers, and "continues to innovate in new use cases and deepen its features across the board."

The company recently made a wise decision in basing its environment on Cloud Foundry. That led to SAP, a distributor of the popular Platform-as-a-Service, teaming with Mendix in the first partnership of a low-code platform and one of the world's four largest enterprise software vendors. The SAP deal should accelerate Mendix's rapid growth.

"The platform's user experience (UX) and content/collaboration services tooling, its development-team support and administration tooling, and its cloud service and developer community are all outstanding," Forrester said.

Mendix also offers leading artificial intelligence and machine-learning development features. The company does show weakness in cloud security certifications, and in the breadth of its partner roster, Forrester said.
