Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I qualify as an ISV?

    If you want to develop, market and sell your software solution or application you are an independent software vendor (ISV). ISVs come in all shapes and sizes—from startups with a great idea to an established IT solution-provider that decides to evolve their business a software product based on their own intellectual property.

    You are an ISV if you have the entrepreneurial spirit to meet the following criteria:

    • A monetizable idea to solve a business problem
    • Ability to develop a repeatable software solution
    • Ability to market, sell and support a software solution
  • What kind of solutions are right for the Mendix ISV program?

    The Mendix ISV program enables an companies to monetize their considerable domain expertise. It can allow startups with an innovative disruptive idea to develop and sell a software solution built on the Mendix Low code platform very quickly

    Software solutions to be considered for the ISV program must solve a customer business problem and be suitable to be adopted by multiple customers. While configuration, some light customization and solution tailoring are often part of an implementation, this should remain limited for an Out-of-the-Box (OOTB) software product. Whenever possible, configurations that can be accessed from within the application itself are the best practice for customer tailoring, however, some areas such as integration require use of the Mendix Studio and are supported in this program. Any application that is not repeatable and requires significant customization outside of general integration would not be suitable as an ISV solution and for the program.

  • What do I need to do to get my project reviewed and accepted?

    After receiving your application to the Mendix ISV program, we ask you to provide a simple Solution 4-pager for your solution. This document tells us about the business problem you are solving, the solution you’re building, the technical overview of the solution, dependencies and GTM details. This allows us to review and provide advice on the best practices to launch a software product. It also helps us to verify that you meet our ethics and integrity standards . Mendix must be able to review this plan before you can submit your product for quality and security review. The 4-pager template will be provided to you after our first application review meeting.
