Well suited: for interfaces between machines data and applications. Made as a service. For web applications in factories where you don't have access to thick clients due to the environment. not well suited: quick measurements and fast data transitions between different applications. When time dependency is needed, then you better can choose other solutions.

When you want to display spreadsheet based reports, it's really convenient as it has everything out of the box.
If you have very basic components like combo boxes or lists, there is hardly a point in using such a large component set.
In the end, it's a matter of finding a good balance between functionality and complexity.

Pros
Microsoft
  • It has a great documentation so new or experienced, you appreciate quick access to quality information
  • It’s very fast, uses less memory than initially expected that has decreased our costs after moving from python
  • It speaks the language of the design patterns really well, so our backend apps are written fast together and connect to frontend systems flawlessly

Cons

  • Net is just like plug and play, we have to focus on a logic of code rest part can be handled by ASP. Net framework.
  • It's a best for only web development.
  • One downside with ASP.NET is its reliance on the .NET framework.

We choose ASP.NET because our core business is working with the SAP HANA database using SAP Business One. We can develop state-of-the-art applications with Razor and Visual Studio 2022 fast and with excellent application performance response. Working SAP Hana with JAVA could be more challenging because it has fewer developers communities, and it could be harder to find a solution for a question.

DevExpress Universal controls are much simpler to use, implement and customized as compared to Kendo. Learning curve for telerik is high, though level of customization that can be achieved with telerik exceeds that of DevExpress Universal. Found DevExpress Universal community support to be better then its competitors. License cost is also a wining bar here.

Return on Investment
Microsoft
  • We realized positive returns due to interns and new employees already having experience due to the free academic versions available.
  • Being able to evaluate the express version prior to purchase was helpful.
  • Performance is adequate, but not as responsive as C++. I guess the trade-off is ease of use and being able to find qualified personnel.

  • It is good for asp.net application and it takes less time in development which we used two years back.
  • We have stopped with these tools when clients were asking applications to be built in angular or react. We have switched to Kendo.
