.NET Framework

We use the Microsoft .NET Framework environment as a development platform and for programming web sites and interfaces. The .NET Framework makes development easier, faster, and more error-free, with several developers choosing it as the technology to use. Large enterprise (Microsoft) support will ensure technology support in the future, and as a new trend, ever-expanding entities have been released as open source. Overall, the .NET Framework has a good history of data security. The selected environment includes all the components needed to develop, publish, and run a .NET application.

Interfaces

Web Services is a widely used and accepted method of communication between applications where a program on the network is called via the http protocol. The use of the Web Service is not limited to .NET applications, but is also available in other environments through the SOAP protocol or REST call. If the application understands and is able to send and receive data in XML or JSON format, it is also possible to use Web Services in the application. The interfaces also allow the applications to be compatible with future applications.
