In recent years many of the accounts systems from yesteryear have been rewritten in the .Net architecture, this sounds impressive but because they have been developed with the same blue print from the original they have missed the point.
.Net has brought to the table many solutions to existing problems such as some of the Advantages of Smart Client summarised below:
- Smart Client Wide Area Networking capability. This has to be thought about at the design stage as its not feature that can be added later on.
- Development & Upgrade capability. The use of plug-in architecture means that the system is customiseable and upgradeable. This again is something that needs to be thought about at the design stage. The framework of Interprise Suite also ensures that development time is minimal for even larger projects.
