Why choose .NET for business application development

by Rob Stephen getaprogrammer

This article is going to feature the key advantages of using the .NET framework to develop business applications. Also, you will get to know with dot net development, what type of applications can be built.

According to the reports made by Similar Tech, worldwide almost 17,911,080 websites are built using .NET web development. This report also shows almost 10,406,741 unique domains are present for this.

So, what are the reasons behind this immense acceptance of this framework? Well, that is what you are going to find out in this article.

Less coding, reuse of code

.NET works on the object-oriented programming that not only eliminates unnecessary codes but also involves less coding for the dot net developers. This framework consists of many reusable components and reusable code.  This translates into less time and consequently less cost for developing business applications.


This framework has proven to be a highly reliable and robust platform for application development when it comes to the development of commercial applications. Due to its scalability nature, the applications made using this framework can evolve and grow as your business grows.


Post application development, the deployment becomes easier with the .NET framework with the help of features like private components, no-impact applications, side-by-side versioning, partially trusted code, and controlled code sharing.

Use for service-oriented architecture

The dot net framework is often used for Web Services that are the solution for executing an SOA strategy. Applications that are designed in different platforms or programming languages are able to transmit data and communicate utilising the standard Internet protocols through Web Services.


With an MVC architecture leaning towards SoC, this development of Microsoft applications facilitates the secure integration of scalable applications. CLR and managed code offer safeguard features such as code access security and role-based security.

Integration with legacy systems

.NET framework is capable of processing all types of XML documents. Also, it can write any file format with ease and swiftness. These qualities provide multiple routes for integration.

Other than all these, being a language-independent framework, .NET allows the developers to build applications for a browser, a desktop, a mobile browser, or an application running on PDA.

What types of applications can be built with .NET?

Web-based applications

  • XML web services

  • Websites

  • Applications requiring integration with partners through the Internet

Desktop applications

  • Windows services applications

  • Accounting applications

  • Windows Forms applications or Windows GUI applications

  • Product or inventory applications

  • Applications for value chain or supply management

  • Warehousing applications

Applications on embedded systems

  • Mobile applications

  • PDA applications

Other types of applications include:

  • ASP.NET applications

  • WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) applications

  • Workflow-enabled applications using Windows WF (Workflow Foundation)

  • Service-oriented applications using WCF (Windows Communication Foundation)

  • Console-based applications

So, if you are thinking of developing any of the applications mentioned above, you will need to consult with dot net development experts and programmers.
