Adobe 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.

  • C# is a great language and .NET has a lot of powerful functionality like LINQ.
  • Easy to integrate with SQL server and other Microsoft solutions (Entity Framework is great).
  • Microsoft tools - get the latest updates and support. They usually have great offerings for early stage startups.

Cons

  • Slow support to remedy glitches. There are frequent updates, but many don't seem to fix the underlying problems in the software
  • Not all programs work well with Adobe. It would be nice to see wider compatibility
  • Adobe Flash can require a lot of capacity on your device to run smoothly

  • NET is tied to Windows and IIS. However the future of ASP.NET is ASP.NET Core, which is the reimagining of ASP.NET in a platform independent manner.

Alternatives Considered

HTML includes many of the same features as Adobe Flash. It also offers mobile support. However, is behind in its development. All in all, I believe Adobe Flash is top of its class and category. When support is concluded around 2020. We're open to using alternative programs that would serve as an alternative to Adobe Flash.

We did not evaluate any other products like ASP.NET as our primary focus as a software development house is utilising the full Microsoft stack. However we are starting to use ASP.NET core on new projects.

Return on Investment

  • Discontinued support is coming in 2020. Beware if you're planning to invest a lot of time in this software
  • Having a single license means it is not very expensive - especially for a larger company size
  • Works well with Mac and PC. We are primarily Mac users - we have seen a positive ROI on both platforms

  • As we have a large group of developers who are fluent in .NET, all our development efforts are due at least in part to the framework.
