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
The level of technical support the solution offers could be improved.The documentation isn't very good and the options are very complex.In the next release, I would like to see better integration between the cloud environment and the on-premises environment.We've never had any issues with the solution, but it's still nice to have overall improvements on it. It could be easier and faster to use, for example.The documentation is not very detailed. They need to improve it and add to it. They should ensure there are lots of visuals to help users better understand the solution.If Microsoft IIS could work well with AppOptics or things like PHP, Python, and other custom languages that run on the webserver, it would be ideal. I think there are cases where people need to use Apache instead of IIS when IIS doesn't work well with other web languages.This solution needs to be easier for cases where you want to have an IIS cluster.The solution should improve the cluster environment and load balancing.

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.

The Microsoft .NET Framework is free of charge, without licensing cost.If you want to develop an enterprise-level application, you have to purchase the enterprise-level development license.There is a Community Edition that can be used free of charge, but the licensing cost for the Enterprise version is quite high.The pricing could be cheaper.The product and support for this solution are free for everyone.Do your homework. Consider the partnership program.

Overview
Internet Information Services (IIS) provides a secure, easy-to-manage, modular and extensible platform for reliably hosting websites, services and applications. With IIS, you get choice and control without giving up reliability or security..NET Framework is a software framework that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large class library named Framework Class Library (FCL) and provides language interoperability across several programming languages. Programs written for .NET Framework execute in a software environment named Common Language Runtime (CLR), an application virtual machine that provides services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. FCL and CLR together constitute .NET Framework.
