The most valuable feature is the financial accounting.The most valuable features for us are web frameworks like MVC, Web API, and WCS.The most valuable features are the Domain Controller and the WBFS Manager.A great solution for creating program solutions in a framework for Microsoft Windows quickly and easily.Initial setup is straightforward. All the components are readily available.The addition of generics to handle common functionality across types, and the more recent upgrade of the dataset to the Entity Framework, has cut development time drastically, while increasing quality and confidence between builds.The .NET Framework simplified operations dealing with the allocation and deallocation of memory spaces and the additional processing resources.

Cons
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.The areas of this solution that need improvement are monitoring, debugging, and troubleshooting.The scalability depends on how you have set it up. If you're running IIS on a single server, it might not be as capable as if you are on many in a cluster or with load balancing and so on.Finding different settings can be difficult if you don't know where to look.

This solution should include Power BI so that we don't have to use any third-party tools.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.Better integration with other tools to make the operation faster would be an improvement.It would be nice if the framework were able to work with additional environments and systems like Linux.Needs stronger security with respect to cloud issues.

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.
