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.

IntelliJ IDEA

IntelliJ IDEA has been a great tool to develop Javascript and Java services for myself. Debugging/Running code is effortless and requires minimal configuration by the user. I prefer using a GUI to text configuration, and IntelliJ IDEA provides that very well. It would be nice if they provided textual configuration in addition to the UI.There are many default configurations to run different scripts without having to search the internet to find examples for how to get the IDE set up.

Pros

ASP.NET

  • NET is a rich framework which provides vast amounts of functionality, which helps speed up development
  • NET is supported by an array of high-quality tooling from Microsoft, such as TFS and Visual Studio
  • There a large community of experienced ASP.NET developers which means patterns and practices are well documented and there is also plenty of discussion opportunities within the community, such as conferences, meetups, and forums.
  • The large user base means that recruitment can be easier

IntelliJ IDEA

  • Unit testing: Fully integrated into IntelliJ IDEA. Your unit tests will run smoothly and efficiently, with excellent debugging tools for when things get tricky.
  • Spring integration: Our Spring project using Maven works flawlessly in IntelliJ IDEA. I know firsthand that Apache is also easily and readily supported too. The integration is seamless and very easy to set up using IntelliJ IDEA's set up wizard when importing new projects.
  • Customization: IntelliJ IDEA comes out of the box with a bunch of handy shortcuts, as well as text prediction, syntax error detection, and other tools to help keep your code clean. But even better is that it allows for total customization of shortcuts you can easily create to suit your needs.

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.

IntelliJ IDEA

  • IntelliJ IDEA wins as long as the language is Java. Outside that , e.g., in other languages, it is not so advanced.
  • It is licensed, with a steep licensing cost. All features are not included in the free edition.
  • It is not as light as Eclipse, so in a weak system, it can be a pain.

VS Code is maturing and has a Scala plugin now. The overall experience with VS Code - for web development at least - is very snappy/fast. IntelliJ feels a bit sluggish in comparison. If that Scala plugin for VS Code is deemed mature enough - we may not bother renewing and resort to the Community Edition if we need it.

User experience is one of the top points that distinguish IntelliJ from other Java IDEs. Migrating from other IDEs to IntelliJ is very easy, importing the code formatting style is easy as well. It is just a very smooth process and a decision I think any pro Java developer should make.

I never really needed support as the product is solid. Any questions that do come up can usually be resolved via online resources. IntelliJ IDEA is popular enough to have a big enough community for you to find answers to common questions. They do have a public bug tracker if you run into issues, but I personally find it difficult to navigate and keep track of.

This installs just like any other application - its pretty straight forward. Perhaps licensing could be more challenging - but if you use the cloud licensing they offer its as simple as having engineers login to the application and it just works.

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.

IntelliJ IDEA

We actually use both Eclipse and IntelliJ for our Java applications. We left it up to developers to choose use either or both tools for their work, in case they want IntelliJ our department supported the fee for use. In general developers preferred IntelliJ for Java application development, and Eclipse for web development or integration project. There wasn't a big learning huddle when developers switch one environment to the other. By this the two tools are complementary, and not conflict.

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.

IntelliJ IDEA

  • IDEA significantly speeds up the development lifecycle. Developers can think more about their code and less about what needs to be done at the syntax and filesystem level.
  • IDEA has such a large user base that it's easy to find people for your organisation that can hit the ground running with it.
  • Using a standard code template helps to standardise the code across the team.
