Deploying Mendix in the cloud was a fast and easy process.
Boston (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
Mendix, the leading application platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provider, today announced that Eurofiber, a top provider of fiber-optic connections, Ethernet and optical transmissions in the Netherlands, has extended its license with Mendix for an additional three years.
The Mendix Agile Business Platform enables Eurofiber to manage and modify its business applications in response to changing market conditions quickly and at low cost. Eurofiber’s self-service portal, a Mendix web app, allows its customers to configure their orders or upgrade their services quickly and easily.
"Deploying Mendix in the cloud was a fast and easy process. Because of the role we play in the cloud market, it is important for us to enjoy and highlight the benefits of the cloud," said Wim Turksma, Customer Experience IT Manager of Eurofiber. “Eurofiber is in a dynamic, growing market and we need to be able to respond quickly to changing conditions. Development time with Mendix is three to five times faster than with SAP and it also allows us to adopt business rules easily. Additionally, the learning curve for developers is significantly shorter."
Managing over 25% of internet traffic and 50% of all mobile communications traffic throughout the Netherlands, Eurofiber was recently named the "Best Managed Company” by Deloitte, and the company is also on Deloitte's "Fast 50" list. The company offers industry-leading network services to organizations, both directly and as a provider of white-label products via Internet and mobile providers.
“As we continue to expand our platform’s capabilities, we are very pleased to extend our partnership with Eurofiber,” said Derek Roos, CEO of Mendix. “Their renewal is another example of the tangible business benefits experienced by our customers. It is extremely satisfying to see Mendix enable our customers to quickly respond to business change and achieve success using the Agile Business Platform.”

More than 25% of all internet traffic and 50% of all mobile communication traffic in The Netherlands is transported via Eurofiber’s fiber optic network.
Eurofiber stands for freedom to choose and headroom to grow. That gives organizations the freedom to decide for themselves how to use the connections and to choose their own service providers. Our finely meshed network, the broad product range and the possibility to increase the bandwidth at any moment, gives organizations the headroom to grow and benefit from new ways of working.
