Evaluating low-code platforms? Read how WaveMaker has an edge over Mendix on critical parameters such as open code, scalability and licensing costs.
|Primary use case||Modernization and new app development||Process automation and new app development|
|Code generation||100% open standards based code generated for full application||No code generation, runtime based on metadata from model|
|App Extensibility||Code generated is fully extensible using WaveMaker or 3rd party IDE||Extensibility of application mainly enabled by model and process designer|
|App Deployment||Multi-clouds and/or on-prem data centers||Mendix cloud, on-prem, Select clouds|
|Lock-in||No lock-in, runtime libraries are open source||Tied to Mendix runtime|
|Pricing model||Number of developers., unlimited apps, unlimited app users||Number of apps / end users|
"First low-code platform made with developers in mind. It uses open standards and for the majority of our development needs, it fits perfectly and boosts our development velocity. We use Kubernetes for all our applications and deploying a Wavemaker application to our cluster was very easy."
Development team manager
“Underrated Low-Code Development Platform that ticks all the boxes. Wavemaker generates free to use free standards based code and can deploy with one click to AWS, Azure and GCP. It caters from all user levels from user, script kiddies to professional Java developers.”
"Wavemaker reduces code writing by more than 80%. Reduction of many third-party and add-on software such as DB schema, management tools, security, roles, permissions, API connectors, and so much more. "
"Wavemaker has evolved since its birth to become a solid platform for development. Its flexibility is outstanding but what makes it really awesome is how it speeds up the development lifecycle."
"Easy to use and free to expand. It's based on opensource platform (Angular) which means I'm not locked in to their service and I'm free to host my code on my own server."
