What is most valuable?

For us, direct integration with Microsoft Windows is probably the most valuable feature.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our efficiency in the time it takes to program a solution.

What needs improvement?

One thing that could improve Microsoft .NET Framework is to give it more flexibility. It is designed to work just on Windows. If it could run over Linux, over MAC, over… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

One advantage to Microsoft .NET Framework is that it is a free product and everyone can use it. It is a very good point about that product because it makes it friendly and… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, I used C++ for my development and it wasn't over any framework. It was the mentality at the time. When I saw the benefit of using a framework like .NET, I saw… more»

What other advice do I have?

One piece of advice that I would give to people considering the use of this product is to use it because of several things: it is free of charge, it is fast, it is… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate at least one other option before choosing Microsoft's .NET Framework. It was JAVA Bridge, but I prefer to use Microsoft .NET Framework because I only… more»

What is most valuable?

Cross-platform development is better than all of the other frameworks. When it comes to the user interface, the context is better than other tools because it is easier to use. You can still use C# in the developer infrastructure, which makes it far better and you don't have to learn a new language. For me, the cost is what is most important. We have an agreement with Microsoft to co-sell some of… more»

What needs improvement?

The pricing could be cheaper. They should have more training materials available that are specific to .NET. We spend a lot of money training our engineers. I think that it would be better if there was more training available to the partners who invest in Microsoft. At this time, the training is all over the place and there is no specific certification. This solution is not scalable with older… more»

What other advice do I have?

Small clients don't do their development internally. We have three of these types of clients. Small to medium-sized organizations don't have an environment because they are easy to develop with easy requirements. I would recommend this solution but it depends on the environment and what they want to do. If you do mobile applications, to avoid the headaches of doing development on multiple… more»

What is most valuable?

The .NET framework is a mature platform that is very helpful and saves time during the software development process. The IDE is quite helpful. There is a lot of very extensive documentation available.

How has it helped my organization?

We have been using this solution for development for a long time and it has proven to be helpful.

What needs improvement?

The price of the Enterprise version is quite high and can be improved. If Microsoft would provide a monthly subscription at a cost that a developer can afford then it would be really helpful. From a… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is a Community Edition that can be used free of charge, but the licensing cost for the Enterprise version is quite high. Some of the tools that are available in the Community Edition need a… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This product is really helpful when compared to other solutions such as open-source platforms. All of the tools are interlinked, rather than having individual tools for individual features. What… more»

What other advice do I have?

Talking from an application developer's perspective, this platform is very helpful because it provides a common development line across all of the products that Microsoft provides. This includes… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for us are web frameworks like MVC, Web API, and WCF.

How has it helped my organization?

Using this framework has enabled us to create services out of things things that we used to do manually. Not only has it made our lives easier, but it has increased… more»

What needs improvement?

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. It… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The Microsoft .NET Framework is free of charge, without licensing cost. The only cost is purchasing the hardware that it runs on.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are also using WebLogic Suite with SharePoint on the server-side.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who wants to use the Microsoft .NET Framework is to have the proper foundation before implementing the solution. This means that they should lay the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Java SDK. Java SDK is also good but require little bit more effort.

What is most valuable?

As we are a software company, we find that accessing resources using this technology is easier compared to the others.

What needs improvement?

The main obstacle in this technology is that it is currently paid. If you want to develop an enterprise-level application, you have to purchase the enterprise-level development license. I think that this is a hurdle. If it is made free then more people will learn and the industry will have more… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we were using the IBM integration bus. We were using Microsoft, Mobility Android, and iOS applications. Most of my experience is with Microsoft solutions.

What other advice do I have?

There are proper resources. Stability and scalability are quite good. We handle 3000 to 4000 users at any time and they are users from all over the world, including North America, Australia, and the Middle East. This is a good option for the level of the audience. We are using version 4.5 but we are… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the customization and the support moving towards a .Net framework.

What needs improvement?

Nothing in particular comes to mind in terms of improvement. It's a proven solution and it really depends on the resources that a company has for maintenance once a solution is in place. That said, it would be good if auto-scaling could be included. I also believe implementation could be simplified… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I"ve used Java previously and find it a more portable solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend that anyone considering implementing the solution do a proof of concept. That gives you an idea as to whether you're on the right path. A company also needs to take into account the requirements of their organization in terms of scalability and ease of maintenance and… more»

What is most valuable?

The ease of use, the richness of the libraries and basically the good tools are all valuable features. Most important are the very good development tools that Microsoft has, it's a good environment.

What needs improvement?

Things could always be a little easier and smoother. You'll sometimes find bugs but because I'm using an older version these bugs have already been fixed in later versions. The .NET open source community is very small and it would be nice if it were larger. I know Microsoft is now contributing a lot, but in other languages there's not too many frameworks that are not Microsoft. It would be good to… more»

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that C# is a very rich language with lots of advanced facilities, which makes it easier to develop by not being too complex. There are a lot of libraries in out-of-the- box .NET Frameworks, which gives you tools to do almost anything you need and there are extension libraries for most of the rest. It's not the same as Python which is a bit slower but has a lot of libraries because… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to incorporate the customers is the solution's most valuable aspect.

What needs improvement?

The pricing and support have room for improvement. The pricing is too high currently. We are thinking about the pricing from the end customer's perspective.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is a bit expensive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did previously use a different solution. We switched because of the lack of quality within the other solution. The way Microsoft adapted to the corporate customers, offered stability and… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are official partners and we are sellers for UiPath. For Microsoft, however, we're just customers. I'm not sure which version of the solution we're currently using. I'd advise others to find a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other options. We looked at both Java and PHP.

Microsoft .NET Framework Questions

What is Microsoft .NET Framework?

.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.
