What made Reflecta choose Servoy as frontend for Progress?

In terms of the functionality of our software and our knowledge, our company currently provides the most superior offering in this market. In terms of user interface we saw opportunities to improve our offering and strengthen our position in the market. Since our current development environment didn’t allow us to create more modern and operating system independent UI’s, we started to look for alternatives that would be future proof. In our selection process, we not only qualified based on features and benefits of the platform, but also on the company behind it. After careful consideration we chose Servoy. From our first interactions we have been impressed with the organization itself and its development platform. The Servoy platform complies entirely with our demands around creating modern user interfaces. It has to support multiple platforms such as Windows, OS X, Linux and mobile devices, and has to give us the option to deliver our application in a SaaS based way. After a successful Proof of Concept any doubts we had were eliminated, leading us to select Servoy as our future platform. We are currently in the first phase of our development strategy and we are 100% convinced that we will be able to realize our vision of becoming the absolute market leader in the fashion, shoe and sports industry.

Is Microsoft Making It Harder To Talk to Oracle Databases?

Ilyse pinged me that she saw and interesting article on a popular .Net newssite with the title above. I’m not very suprised by it, Microsoft has a long history of creating new ways of doing things (think ODBC, OLE-DB, ADO, LINQ, etc, etc) and then dropping them. Bad news is that many developers have to continously rewrite their software to Microsofts ever changing mind. With Servoy you always connect the same way to databases and it’s ready for the future! And we don’t plan to drop Oracle support any time soon!
