Overall Satisfaction with Rencore

I work as a consultant with a Microsoft Gold Partner, our focus is on helping organisations migrate from on-premises infrastructure into Office 365 and Azure. Where we work with organisations that need to rebuild or migrate existing applications to the cloud, we recommend the tools from Rencor to assist in this process.
  • Rencore is a company formed of people that have lived the Microsoft community, they have a deep understanding of the needs of businesses that aren't met by the standard Microsoft tools.
  • Rencore staff are heavily involved in the Microsoft ecosystem, with many of them spending personal time working on projects such as the Patterns and Practices foundation. This adds to their strength and knowledge of the Microsoft platform.
  • Their products are well known in the community and often used by Microsoft staff themselves. Their support of MVPs ensures that they receive feed back at all levels ensuring a stronger platform of products.
  • I'd like to see a cheaper subset of tools for the 'citizen developer' to try and enforce good practice at all levels.
  • For clients that I work with converting their old farm solutions to client side/Azure, the Rencore tool has significantly reduce the time to learn and improved code quality.
I'm not aware of products that do the same as the Rencore offering. I think they'd be hard to beat.
For Microsoft shops that are doing custom development on the Microsoft cloud platform in Office 365 and Azure, the Rencore toolset is an absolute must, especially if you are involved in converting farm solutions to cloud, or just moving into cloud development for the first time.
