Building Business Applications in a Recession - (Continued)

So are we seeing green shoots or aren't we? Personally, I think it's a bit too early to say whether they're green shoots, mustard seeds or just mirages.. What we do know is that enterprise companies and software vendors are going to continue their cautious approach to IT spending for the time being.

And they face a unique dilemma: In an environment that combines recession and lower IT budgets, companies need to somehow find ways to be more competitive (ie. profitable) and yet spend less.

When building business applications, one of the common traps that software developers fall for are Client-side development tools that promise a highly-graphical 'rich' user interface. What they don't always realize is that a rich user interface doesn't automatically translate into a rich user experience. And it can end up costing quite a bit more.

In this vein then, here's our latest white paper.

Here, our Director of Product Marketing, Ofer Spiegel explains how to build a business application user interface (using uniPaaS) to deliver optimal user experience that boosts end-user satisfaction without breaking the bank.

If you're interested, he also writes a blogabout the subject and we explain how uniPaaS can help you re-use existing .NET resources when building your user interface here.
