Adopting the agile methodology has become a critical element for companies trying to maintain a competitive advantage in today’s business climate.

Mendix, the leading agile business application platform-as-a-service (PaaS) vendor, today announced the final agenda for its highly anticipated conference, Mendix World 2011.

Mendix World will be held on April 28th, at Van Nelle Fabriek in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Currently, hundreds of Mendix customers and partners, as well as leading agile advocates and thought-leaders, are expected to attend the conference.

This year’s presentations will be headlined by a keynote speech from Derek Roos, CEO of Mendix. Roos will discuss how proper agile application lifecycle management can improve business-IT alignment and reach true business agility.

“Adopting the agile methodology has become a critical element for companies trying to maintain a competitive advantage in today’s business climate,” said Roos. “I look forward to hearing new ways that the Mendix community embraces this process and how Mendix has supported them.”

Mendix’s partners are the cornerstone of the company’s user-community; throughout the event, these partners will present on the lessons learned in their respective industries, after implementing the Mendix Agile Business Platform™.

Mendix World 2011 will also feature a customer case study, led by Henry Kieskamp, Head of ICT for the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (PKN). In his discussion, Kieskamp will address his experience with agile software development, as well as how the Mendix Agile Business Platform™ enabled the simplification of the church’s members and contributions administration.

The PKN project was one of the largest and most successful IT projects in the Netherlands last year; the application was built for over 10,000 users and manages over four-million members.

“We are excited to provide a platform for compelling discussions and presentations within the Mendix community at this year’s conference,” said Paul Campaniello, Mendix Vice President of Global Marketing. “From the Protestant Church case study to our partner announcements and the preview of Mendix 3.0, attendees will learn just how important and easy ‘Achieving Agility Now’ can be with the Mendix Agile Business Platform™.”
