Umang KathiyaraCo-Founder / Solution Architect / Project Manager (Mobile & Web Apps Development) at PRAXINFO
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The speed of development is the quickest for any tool on the market."
"It offers good support for various types of classes, along with many open source libraries that we can readily utilize in our application development process. This gives us a lot of options when it comes to custom development solutions, without having to worry about licensing or other programming-related issues."
"The user interface could be improved to be more friendly for developers."
"In terms of improvement, it doesn't support concurrent processing. When we want to process anything on a concurrent basis, we have to divide it into a number of things, like a queue, or we have to run it using Cron jobs. We would like to have the capability to run any thread or process in parallel."
"The cost for developers is high because you have to pay for licenses as well as runtime."
"The Zend PHP engine is open source technology, so there's no need for us to worry about licensing or other costs."
