IT and Business leaders have a problem. The imbalance between the business' application requirements and IT's ability to meet their needs is so great they have to take a different approach. They must collaborate. They must be agile. They must empower the business to participate in its own rescue. Said differently, they need help transforming their enterprise into a high performance provider of solutions, and Mendix[EE1] has the people, domain expertise and technology platform to bring the groups together for success.

Do you consider yourself a solutions based sales engineering leader? Are you maniacal focused on helping customers achieve meaningful business outcomes through our technology? Are you best of breed? If you are all these things, how would you like to sell the leading Gartner MQ and Forrester Wave solution in a red-hot market expected to exceed $15 billion by 2020? Mendix provides a platform and approach that helps enterprises innovate and digitally transform their businesses and industries. Nearly 4,000 organizations worldwide, including KLM, Medtronic, Merck, and Philips, rely on Mendix to build web and mobile applications to delight their customers and empower their employees.
