Customer case DSM
From century-old roots as the Dutch State Mines, DSM has evolved into a purpose-led science-based global company specializing in solutions for human and animal health and nutrition. Our purpose is to create brighter lives for all – which is why we’re proud that our name has assumed a new meaning among our people in recent years: Doing Something Meaningful.
Within DSM we have a large, globally used diverse landscape. In this landscape, Mendix is adopted as a low-code development platform to build customized applications to support businesses in their digital journey. Within our IT landscape we have created a wide variety of applications using Mendix. In order to meet the current demand, and deliver our applications in good quality, there was a need to expand our developer team with senior Mendix expertise.
Squad Apps delivers this expertise through a squad of two Mendix Expert developers. The approach in this is the following: one developer is in the lead and acts as the single point of contact to the business. Together the developers divided the development work in the background.
Squad Apps helps to create new applications, but also maintains existing applications and figures out complex issues and functionality into suitable solutions.
Furthermore, they feel connected to DSM and act as true team-players, they help other Mendix developers to grow in their Mendix development and helping to increase quality throughout the company (either internal DSM resources or external resources from other suppliers).
Working with Squad Apps gave DSM the Mendix expertise we need to fulfill our internal needs for low-code development & advice. Next to that, by working with squads, we are not depending on a single developer, and it also gives us the options to scale if necessary.
‘Squad Apps delivers high quality resources and an intelligent approach for low-code development’
