Studio Ultimate: A Complete Suite of Controls to Build Line-of-Business and Data Analysis Applications
August 11, 2011 – Pittsburgh, PA – ComponentOne, a leader in developer-productivity tools essential to build enterprise-level applications for the desktop, Web, and mobile devices, was ranked as the leading market Champion in Info-Tech Research Group’s recently published Application Development Tools Vendor Landscape report.
The report, which evaluated several vendors in the application development space, assessed vendors by the strength of their offering and their strategy for the enterprise. “With over twenty-three years of experience, ComponentOne offers the most well-rounded offering of tools and components covering all the major platforms (desktop, mobile, and Web) pushing them ahead of the pack as the leading Champion in the Vendor Landscape,” said Randy Hearn, Senior Research Analyst from Info-Tech Research Group.
The executive summary of the report described ComponentOne as the vendor that provides the most well-rounded offering of tools in all three of the major categories, Desktop, Mobile, and Web, all in one convenient suite.
“From one developer to another, I know there are many decisions one makes when building and supporting applications," said Bernardo Castilho, chief technology officer at ComponentOne. "InfoTech has done much of the research for you by evaluating the use of third-party tools and vendors. What sets ComponentOne apart is ease-of-development, performance, compatibility, documentation, and support. Our .NET controls save developers more time and add more functionality than our competition. We also provide our clients with unique, valuable features such as PDF generation and viewing, incredibly agile data grids, 3D surface and contour charts, and engine-agnostic reporting controls for all platforms,” Castilho commented.
Using development components and tools helps developers stay current with technology trends, providing responsive solutions for clients. The report discusses how the use of third-party controls is critical to any business these days given that business and timelines are tight, and the need exists to get more done in less time while remaining in touch with the leading trends in software.
“Developers are challenged with delivering more high-quality features in less time than ever before,” said Castilho. “Instead of spending development time adding features to out-of-the-box controls, developing themes and making applications perform faster, developers turn to ComponentOne for their enterprise needs.”
