If your business develops solutions in ASP, you could significantly cut your development time and improve quality, security and performance of your applications by migrating to .NET. This article outlines some of main benefits of this new technology.
Migrating from ASP to ASP.Net
ASP was released to work on NT Server 4.0 in 1996 as a scripting language used to deliver dynamic content to web users. The take up of ASP has been significant over past 6 years with a large proportion of dynamic sites now being written in this way.
ASP is very popular with developers and it has undoubtedly brought many benefits to websites. However, it is now an older technology and is being replaced by ASP.Net. .Net has all benefits of ASP, together with improved security, scalability, reliability, flexibility and interoperability of applications.
IT Companies developing solutions for business in ASP could reduce their development time and cost significantly by migrating their customers to .NET.
The Benefits for Business
Security: - Software companies who provide their own hosting have an obligation to their clients to provide sufficient security to ensure that client's data is not compromised. Microsoft have received very little positive media coverage relating to security of their systems. Sites hosted using ASP have had numerous security alerts over past 6 years which have been corrected through use of service packs. The .NET framework provides a new security approach which provides more clear and powerful control over application security. This reduces risk for companies hosting web sites as they can feel more confident about risk posed by security attacks and in some cases can protect companies if their terms and conditions do not cover them against risk of security breaches.
