Performance: - IT Hardware is expensive - a factor that has to be considered when hosting an application for a business. The .NET platform utilises IT hardware more efficiently, thus significantly improving performance. This reduces cost required to make a large application run acceptably and increases number of applications that can be simultaneously hosted on a single machine.
Time: - The .NET framework provides a powerful collection of code libraries covering all major areas of IT. By harnessing power of these libraries, developers can write an application using far less lines of code. This reduces time taken to complete solutions significantly. As well as this, ability to re-use code in .NET is made easier, thus reducing development time even further.
Perceived Quality: - The .NET framework provides more flexibility than any other framework available. This gives developers more choice when creating a solution for a client and makes it simpler than ever before to add useful value-added features, currently only found on highest quality sites. The improvement in quality that can be achieved using .NET means that a Software company's brand can be developed by guaranteeing higher quality software than its competitors.
These are just some of many benefits that .Net can offer your business.
