Getting Started with Visual Studio.Net
Visual Studio.Net is a comprehensive Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that is extensively used to develop ASP.Net web applications. In addition, it allows you to create standalone applications, mobile applications and eXtensible Markup Language (XML) Web Services. Visual Studio.Net provides a common platform to build, compile, and run an application. Visual Studio.Net comes with .Net Framework that allows you to install Common Language Runtime (CLR), class libraries, and ASP.NET. Visual Studio.Net has drag-and-drop capabilities for all controls that make it user-friendly.
Visual Studio.Net comes in three editions: Professional, Enterprise Developer, and Enterprise Architect. The Professional edition helps you to easily build and deploy Windows, Web, and Mobile applications. The Professional edition, that has built-in ADO.NET and Visual Database Tools, provide support for creation of professional data-driven software. The Enterprise Developer allows you to use .NET Framework and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 to develop distributed applications with improved deployment capabilities, security, reliability, and performance.
The Globalcom StoryWritten by Rajesh Chirunomula
Previously Globalcom used to simply distribute prepaid products in strategic locations in New York. We had four proprietary routes that we had set up and managed, however we saw then that all of us were working long hours with minimal profitability. We sold 3 of those routes, and with profits became a carrier - and since 2001 Globalcom has grown.
We began building directs worldwide, but recently even those margins were quickly dropping, and now to prepare for future we have a new business plan. Globalcom has signed contracts with international carriers in emerging and recently privatized markets to receive their complete A to Z traffic. Some of these carriers have invested millions in licenses, and networking equipment thus quality is of utmost importance.
The carriers that Globalcom has dealt with in past can be best described as Tier 2, or Tier 3 carriers, and quality was not necessarily most important element, it was just rate. Globalcom has exclusive contracts that include SLAs (service level agreements) thus quality is most important element. We can afford to pay more for good quality routes, because our carriers are charging end consumer in their localities much more then market in United States. What this means is that Globalcom is positioned to generate more business, and receive more profits then as average arbitrage wholesale carrier. We have strategic partnerships with carriers worldwide, and our exclusive contracts demand high quality service, with most competitive rates.
