A Brief Explanation of .NET
.NET is a library of pre-programmed functions. It provides our developers a quick, efficient way to add the features you’ve all come to expect from our programs: calculators, clocks, search fields, and windows, just to name a few. So in the same way a contractor might order a window from a lumber yard instead of building it himself, a developer can order a window from .NET.

So, Why .NET?
Time is probably a company’s most valuable asset. Unfortunately, there is no way to create more, which is why investing time into improving its use is so worthwhile. By removing the need to build calculators, clocks, search fields, and windows from scratch, .NET saves valuable time. Because of .NET, BS&A is able to reinvest this time into developing feature-rich software at an affordable price.

Is the Upgrade Worth the Trouble?
The benefits .NET offers to BS&A are obvious; to our customers, less so. Features are nice, but why upgrade, especially when the older software works? The answer is .NET’s database engine, SQL. SQL has two advantages over the old database engine, Pervasive. The first is an intelligent database manager that has sole control over the data. The database manager keeps data and users separate, thus increasing data integrity as well as security. The second advantage is a tad ironic: SQL has become so “pervasive” that it is now the industry-standard. Because of its wide-spread use, there is a plethora of third-party software to perform backups, routine maintenance, data exports, and so on.
