Apache Flex

If your site is purely animations (like some company timeline from the start of the company to the current date), it's well suited for this use case.

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.

Cons

Apache Flex

  • It's heavy as it needs to load the Flash plugin first before rendering anything to the user.
  • Not future ready as there is no support for mobile and tablet platforms.

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.

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

Apache Flex

  • Our users have a great positive feedback from the UI point of view.
  • The ease of use of the application had doubled our existing user base.
Abraham Madathil | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
