An enterprise framework that combines application development and social media

We’ve all seen the demos of a solution that offers a self-service way for users and application developers to provision business services on their own. When I see those demos, the enterprise IT administrator in me cringes at the data governance and licensing impact of such solutions. I recently learned about a platform as a service for application solution that takes an entirely different approach.

The Mendix Agile Business Platform allows you to build and deploy applications very quickly. What I like about this development platform and the platform’s application store is that code snippets can be downloaded to give your application some functionality, such as a Twitter feed that can display current Tweets about a username or a company. Another example is a Google Maps module that can add that functionality into a website for various themes, templates, and styles. The Mendix Agile Business Platform also offers an enterprise cloud dashboard that ensures awareness for each application within an application cloud.
