The most valuable features for us are web frameworks like MVC, Web API, and WCS.Proven solution with valuable customization.Ease of use, the richness of the libraries and basically very good development tools.I'd rate the solution as highly stable.As we are a software company, we find that accessing resources using this technology is easier compared to the others.The .NET framework is a mature platform that is very helpful and saves time during the software development process.When it comes to the user interface, the context is better than other tools because it is easier to use.The most valuable feature is the financial accounting.

Cons
Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail.The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively.

I would like to see more pre-built features in the MVC framework because as it is now, it's very open and you have to develop your own controls in order to use it.Lacking in auto-scaling.The .NET open source community could be larger.The pricing is a bit expensive.In the next release, I am looking for more advanced technologies such as socket communication and enhanced features like realtime chat with the clients.If Microsoft would provide a monthly subscription at a cost that a developer can afford then it would be really helpful.They should have more training materials available that are specific to .NET. We spend a lot of money training our engineers.This solution should include Power BI so that we don't have to use any third-party tools.

Consider the partnership program.
