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.

Azure App Service

If you are a large organization where you have a lot of traffics, Azure is good for you. If your scenario is something like, you sometimes have high traffic, and sometimes low traffic, and you got enough money, Azure is good for scaling up to your need. Azure is definitely not for you if your budget is low. Not suitable for low budget people AT ALL.

Azure App Service

  • It has options to deploy using CI/CD.
  • It has great integration with Azure Devops
  • It has all the common runtimes, so we don't need to install softwares.

Cons

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.

Azure App Service

  • Jumps between resource sizes can get expensive
  • You may wind up putting a lot of eggs in one basket--not necessarily a con but something to keep in mind (most of your data will likely be managed and processed through Microsoft products/services if you fully commit to Azure App Service).
  • Learning new technology. If you're moving from on-premises to Azure App Service (or any cloud solutions), you'll likely have to rethink how things are done to achieve the same end results (and/or resources may become expensive quickly).

I give the Azure App Service support an 8 instead of a 10 because there are time when it is easier to google a problem and find an answer than it is to use the learning library to find an answer. I would say the universe of user group members willing to offer suggestions is amazing.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Azure App Service

Azure App Service will give you a very solid and strong platform to deploy your applications. It gives you great interfaces to manage those applications either through a Web Portal or the Azure command-line interface. However, I consider Azure overall to be very complex and hard for newcomers to use it right away. I would consider Heroku first due to its extremely simple interface and abstraction of computing units.

Return on Investment

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.

Azure App Service

  • It's difficult to find the right APP because one software has number of apps so there's no way to find the official version of an app, so sometimes we need to install APP then find out which is performing well.
  • Little expensive.
