Years of planning, years of my hard work and when my systems crashed, I remember only her words.
“Be sure, because I think we would be better off with .NET Application Development. Without this we could be making the biggest mistake of our lives” ……
But there was not point now. It is all over. I did not pay heed to my CTO. She was the best but my arrogance took better of me. I did not depend on the .NET technologies, the window to the future to support my huge enterprise I had brought up from scratch.
It all started as a small grocery business inherited from my family. I clearly remember how I started off taking care of the three shops spread across the city. With my judgement and foresight, I devised a very efficient home delivery model within the city and gradually a SMS model to help my regular clients place orders and make online payments.
Today, after 10 branches I was ready to launch a website for people to browse through my products and place orders through the site or the very efficient app for Stop&Shop, the brand I nurtured & curated for the last seven years. The eCommerce bug had bit me hard, but I faltered on technology.
I did not listen to her.
It has been more than a decade since Microsoft launched the .NET framework, and it comes as no surprise that this highly scalable, flexible & dynamic platform continues to remain the preferred choice for dot net development companies & enterprises worldwide. While .NET faces stiff competition from popular frameworks & languages like JAVA, Python or PHP, it has a huge market share and ranks high on popularity charts of the technical communities.
The .Net framework boasts of a healthy mix of compatible technology. As compared to other options, these stand out much better. The .NET Framework is a robust development platform for building apps for web, Windows, Windows Phone, Windows Server, and Microsoft Azure. The common language runtime (CLR) and the .NET Framework class library make this framework dependable and popular.
What makes the .NET Framework really the first choice of enterprises is that it provides many services, including memory management, type and memory safety, security, networking, and application deployment. It delivers easy-to-use data structures and APIs that complement the Windows operating system.
Microsoft .NET framework allows enterprises to build powerful web applications, corporate websites, content systems, social media platforms and any other portal or application format that can be thought of. The resulting software is easily maintainable, reliable, robust, facilitates fast development and comes with a rich suite of controls.
There is a healthy resource share in the market when it comes to . .NET enterprise application development , considering the material available, consistency in documentation as well as support that can be availed of. The .NET framework also makes reusability of code a simple affair resulting in quicker development & deployment cycles.
But, I overlooked all these benefits Stop&Shop could have had.
Quicker Software Development & Community of Developers to Collaborate
Better Efficiencies of Execution with Reduced Runtime Overheads
Stable & Dependable
I wonder how I simply disregarded all these benefits pointed out time & again by my CTO.I should have let her be.
.NET is a versatile platform with Microsoft supported expertise over the years. An obvious feature is complete support for CSS & XML along with modern web development standards. With full support from Microsoft, .NET remains abreast with regular patches and updates to the same. Enterprise support can also be easily availed for .NET features, and there are many dedicated dot net development companies specifically catering to build enterprise level websites and applications using this niche technology.
Considering the ease of usage and highly featured platform, .NET framework continues to remain one of the top choices for enterprises and organizations globally for their IT operations.
But I forgot.
I am in a rush. A real rush today. After a sleepless night with a nerve harrowing nightmare I cut back to reality. It is still not too late. I give my decision today. I go by her word and we close on .Net as the framework for the ERP to support my years of hard work, Stop&Shop. Period.
