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

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.

dotConnect for Salesforce

  • It can be slow but at the same time can be managed by considering other external factors like system compatibility, network & firewall issues.
  • Requires dependencies on certain tools and that may bring some unexpected compatibility errors.
  • Entity framework feature seems to be a bit lagging behind MS-SQL.

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.

dotConnect for Salesforce

We had been using an outsourced company for such projects until we decided to hire our own team and do all of this DB work in-house. So this was our first year of experience with this product. So far, we're very pleased, as are our clients.

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.
