.NET

.NET is well suited for any general purpose solution to a business problem, though if we are talking strictly the framework version - you have to be more or less tied to Microsoft Windows to run it. If this isn't a problem, then it will be able to address and solve any programming project you have.

OnBase by Hyland

The best use case for Hyland Onbase would be a large organization that has many departments that needs to share documents across those departments. For organizations like this can better use the mark up features and the automated workflow engine to allow for notifications and faster processing. In situations where you are pulling in documents in house and also reviewing them within your own area OnBase seems like overkill. There are many products out there that can function as document storage. OnBase doesn't have any fancy tricks that I have seen to merge different file types like tiff, jpg, or pdf so there isn't any magic going on here. Hyland has a large ecosystem of OnBase adjacent add ons that can support a variety of different software systems. If you are looking to automate business processes in another software system based on the processing in OnBase I could see that being very attractive. We do not leverage those features as the cost and work required is prohibitive but in a large enough setting I would see that being a value add.

Pros

.NET

  • Visual Studio is one of the best IDEs and .NET is the best framework to use with Visual Studio.
  • There is a large network of support for the .NET framework.
  • The .NET framework encompasses a very large area of the programming stack.
  • The .NET framework is flexible and can be used for desktop applications or web development.

OnBase by Hyland

  • Integration with third party applications is amazing. Being able to get documents and information through email, folder importing, mainframe screens, other applications, and xml/csv streams was simple, powerful, and effective.
  • The Application Enabler utility is one of the best I've seen which allows integration with 3rd party applications to easily pull up and locate related information within an Onbase system.
  • The administration of the platform is simple and with minimal training can be maintained by a regular system administrator.

Cons

.NET

  • .NET is heavily Microsoft Windows oriented, and while .NET core tried to resolve that with MacOS and Linux support, .NET Core is still waiting for wider adoption.
  • While free for small projects, additional features for big projects can be a little expensive.
  • Can be resource-heavy upon deployment. We continuously have our more senior staff optimize the code of our junior developers for performance. Other languages are a little bit more forgiving in comparison.

  • Lack of feature parity between clients. Some features are supported in Thick Client, but not in Unity Client (Or the other way around).
  • Confusing menu structures within administrative programs. Lots of bouncing between programs in order to configure or tweak things.
  • Report Services is an additional license and should be included with the base product.

The first thing that comes in mind is the IDE is a software suite that provides must-have tools for a developer to build and test software applications. The default IDE for .NET applications is Microsoft Visual Studio, which is a sophisticated tool to build apps. Intellisense is a favorite for developers to write code easily without remembering all the functions at the time of development. It supports multiple programming languages - C#, VB, F#, C++ based on individual skill sets.

You get out of something what you put into it. You reap what you sow! If an organization will spend time setting the solution up, dedicating staff to its development and ongoing support, and always keep the end-user in mind during development, you will have one of the most well-received solutions in your organization. So many organizations that I speak with stand up a solution but don't commit someone to its upkeep and development. It is vital that you have the staff to work within the solution on a daily basis.

Customer support has been amazing. .NET has an amazing online community that is very supportive. The abundance of .NET developers online as well as in the office has sped up our time to market.When we have a problem and need to submit a ticket to Microsoft, their support has been extremely helpful and prompt.

This rating is a compromise because I technically have 2 tiers of support.
I go through a re-seller that I give a (10). I send an email and receive acknowledgment within minutes.
For the few times we need to contact Hyland for assistance, it sometimes takes a couple of days to receive a response - and then the first tier might go back and forth a dozen times through email instead of initiating a phone call. And for an advanced issue, they take too long before they forward to an evangelist or someone more knowledgeable that is able to assist. I give that process an (8).

Alternatives Considered

.NET

The .NET platform has a much longer and broader history than Laravel, so we chose to go with it as the support will be far superior. Additionally, Laravel is tied to PHP, while you can use multiple different languages in .NET. The additional flexibility that .NET provides in the range of types of applications you can build with it sealed the deal.

OnBase by Hyland

We utilized another product prior to OnBase but we were alerted that there were possible issues with solvency of the company. We were able to switch to OnBase. There are two other groups in our company that are using products (Alfresco and an internally created program) to share PDF files of drawings with others. While I have not used these programs here are some comments I have heard. These two particular software programs are limited to sharing only PDF files with users. This is to make sure that the native file is not downloaded and edited by anyone who so desires to make changes. Control of the master electronic drawing file is not possible in these programs

Return on Investment

.NET

  • There are few factors we needed for our custom development. Below are each of them. We were able to get a satisfactory outcome for each of these factors which made .NET platform a very good choice in developing enterprise applications.
  • Reusability of codes- Microsoft has given many re-usable codes and components in the framework to help developers do their job effortlessly. With the help of default features, developers can create end-to-end solutions and make the business operations more efficient. As codes and components are reusable, .NET reduces development time and if applications take less time to develop, they cost cheaper and you get faster return on investment.
  • Easy to maintain- Development cost is one time, but maintenance cost is incurring. .NET apps are easily maintainable, thanks to the configuration settings that can be modified without any need to rewrite the code.
  • Deployment is hassle free- Deploying software is always challenging and the most common problem developers face in this process is the existence of multiple DLLs. It’s hard to make sure that all DLLs will co-exist in the same machine. .NET framework solves this problem by allowing different versions of the same DLL to exist side-by-side on the same machine.
  • Security- .NET is one of the most secure web and application development frameworks available in the market. As it’s made by Microsoft, you can be absolutely sure about the security measurements. Hackers can never steal valuable data from your website or apps.
  • Cross platform friendly- What if you had developed an app for desktop and laptop computers and now after seeing the growth of mobile apps in the market, you want it in mobile version as well? You can easily develop an app that runs on the desktop and PDA without any issue. As you can re-use the codes and utilize the same development environment, your job becomes a lot simpler.

  • We have leveraged OnBase to automate many tasks that have been paper driven in the past and are now electronic.
  • Because OnBase is so versatile, it has been the solution for projects that otherwise would have caused the system to purchase another application.
