The Big Picture...

The Microsoft .NET platform represented a major paradigm shift in software application development. With the profusion of the web as a means by which information can be stored and shared, Microsoft adapted its strategy to provide software application developers with a unified set of software tools and technologies that would facilitate commonality in approaches to the hitherto rather disparate worlds of the traditional desktop application and those that can run on the Word Wide Web.

This was no trivial task, but ultimately imperative. The traditional internal 'desktop' or LAN based applications communicate with their data in a completely different manner than their web-based equivalents, to say nothing of the differing requirements for absolute security of user access (authentication) and transmission of data over the internet. The now realised vision for developers was to ensure that solutions could be developed using common languages and methodologies across these two platforms, bringing together the best of both and delivering seamless integration as far as practically possible.

In summary...

.NET can therefore be described as a set of tools and technologies enabling the delivery of services across all systems infrastructures, from small, single-machine desktop applications through to full enterprise scale solutions distributed over the internet in the form of standard websites or web-based applications supporting a great many users.

Here at NETX we have utilised .NET technologies since the first release several years ago: we design and develop for both internal (desktop) and web/cloud-based platforms in equal measure and have gained a great deal of experience in 'best practice' in that time.

Existing systems...where do we come in..?

From the beginning, ideally! Not always possible of course but we do have extensive experience of 'cleaning up' and enhancing existing systems; some of which have been in operation for quite some time. By consultating with yourselves and ensuring a full understanding of what the system was designed to do; we can evolve the existing software into a highly reliable and productive solution.

...or New build requirement?...

  • Beginning-to-end systems solution development
  • MS Office systems integration
  • Existing project takeover
  • Legacy systems database integration with modern front-end (User Interface) technologies

Naturally, we'd be happy to talk to you about any needs you may have in one or more of these areas.
