What to use for Desktop Development…

Line of business application development isn’t going away. How you look at current enterprise development requirements and future needs may indicate a code base strategy that follows very closely inline with XAML. Windows Presentation Foundation – WPF – has become a default for Windows desktop development and as Microsoft infuses new feature support into the IDE, including greater compatibility across Visual Studio assets, the underlying structure – XAML, helps solidify a path going forward.

From strong graphical solutions expected by line of business application users built on WPF to mobile fluent front-line workers consuming a mix of WPF, Silverlight and others, WPF answers an immediate need for business systems while incurring a knowledge base that carries forward to Silverlight and mobile app development spurred on with Xamarin.

Enterprise resource planning and scheduling starts with the heavy lifting being done on the desktop, where the detail and calculation intensive work is efficiently maneuvered using multiple displays that present multiple views of enterprise data. When it comes to desktop and more mobile Enterprise Resource Planning and Scheduling needs – DBI has you covered.
