Adobe Animate (formerly Flash)

Adobe flash is best to use for developing applications specifically for desktop and laptop PC websites. We use it a lot with clients who send us content from other countries to stream and/or view video, audio and multimedia. Since there is no mobile browser or device support, it can not be used for any app related projects.

ASP.NET

ASP.NET is definitely well-suited for Enterprise applications as it was designed for just such a purpose. It has capabilities to produce cross-platform solutions. The learning curve when switching can be intimidating, but as long as your team has a decent knowledge of general web development, then it should not be too difficult to make the transition. You will be satisfied in the end.

Pros

Adobe Animate (formerly Flash)

  • The scalability of what Flash can do makes it so useful. You can do something simple like make a ball bounce on screen over some letters before showing your logo, or something more complex such as developing an animated short to display.
  • Using Flash videos on websites is very commonplace, so people are used to seeing it and have the necessary plugins installed already.
  • The files are very small, and the compression is very smooth. This helps if you are trying to send content to mobile devices or simply keep your website footprint small to ensure fast loading times.

ASP.NET

  • NET is a rich framework which provides vast amounts of functionality, which helps speed up development
  • NET is supported by an array of high-quality tooling from Microsoft, such as TFS and Visual Studio
  • There a large community of experienced ASP.NET developers which means patterns and practices are well documented and there is also plenty of discussion opportunities within the community, such as conferences, meetups, and forums.
  • The large user base means that recruitment can be easier

Cons

Adobe Animate (formerly Flash)

  • Unfortunately, Flash is dying because of compatibility issues. Users are increasingly viewing websites on mobile devices, and Flash animations will not work in these cases.
  • Very soon, almost all of the major browsers will be blocking Flash, which is obviously a problem!
  • Flash provides decent 2D options, but it's pretty limited in 3D capabilities.

ASP.NET

  • Starting a new ASP.Net project can sometimes seem daunting to get all the initial libraries in place unless you use a predefined scaffold. This is getting better.
  • You are tied to the Microsoft/Azure platforms for deployment of ASP.Net applications. However, Net Core helps alleviate this.
  • Language choices (VB, C#, F#, C++) can seem a little daunting at times.

Flash is usable but definitely has a learning curve that a novice user may need to Google a few tutorials prior. The seamless integration with other Adobe software products is nice for loading content from the cloud. Plus it's great for storing and saving work on the go.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Animate (formerly Flash)

Adobe Flash is being used in my company and my freelance work because it is the most universal tool used by all. It is able to be used on multiple applications and platforms and it is fairly easy to use once you have been trained. You can also get it with Adobe Suite which is well liked across multiple company types

ASP.NET

ASP.NET is much easier to work with and ramp up than any other product that we tried. ASP.NET was also significantly cheaper to start coding with. We also had the resources on hand so we did not need to hire contractors or consultants, which also allowed us to go faster and cheaper. We had a lot of issues with WebSphere.

Return on Investment

Adobe Animate (formerly Flash)

  • Absolutely a positive return on investment - our marketing always does better with animated features.
  • It gives our entire firm a meaningful reputation as being open to new and advancing technology and not shying away from it as things advance.
  • Allows us to pull content creators from our internal staff that are not particularly skilled in coding but can use the easy-to-use Adobe platform.

ASP.NET

  • It has allowed us to quickly develop a powerful line of business functionality for our customers, using common technologies and leveraging third-party components.
  • Interaction with user desktops and local machines has been problematic to overcome when trying to integrate with desktop applications such as MS Office.
