.NET Consulting and Development

Hunting down the right
.NET Consulting and
Development Company

Everyone knows that .NET isn’t exactly the latest developer platform around. But, as one of Microsoft’s original languages, countless apps and websites have been built on it. And for various reasons, a lot of companies need to keep legacy programs running on .NET to defray the costs of starting over from scratch. But, since nothing in software stands still, it’s often a smart move to engage a .NET consultant to keep your software current.

CROSS-PLATFORM DESIGN

platform-design

Since the .NET platform is entirely open source, you can run it across all operating systems and supports over 25 programming languages, which brings further developers into the fold who can seamlessly adapt their knowledge from one operating system to another.

ROBUST CODE

robust-code

In software development, smooth code is king. .NET can help alleviate any of the headaches you could encounter with other frameworks, so your users can benefit from stress-free coding.

OBJECT ORIENTED PROGRAMMING

object-oriented

With OOP, .NET developers can reuse code elements throughout the process, saving time and reducing the costs of the development process so you can apply that to other areas of your business.

SECURITY

OOP also enhances security of software and applications, which is then backed up by additional features of the .NET framework.

FAST DEVELOPMENT

fast-development

The .NET framework provides a more rapid and improved method of software development. Since it works with the Visual Studio by Microsoft, it gives .NET software developers the ideal environment for fast and efficient development while still maintaining maximum quality.

FEWER MEMORY LEAKS

fewer-memory

By using the Garbage Collector, the .NET Common Language Runtime provides an easily managed environment that helps a .NET developer company reduce leaks by maintaining memory.

So What Attributes Should you Look for in a .NET CONSULTANT?

PAST PORTFOLIO

Since .NET has been around a long time, you want a .NET developer who’s been developing in it for a while, too. Don’t settle for a firm just getting started and learning on your dime. Ask them for multiple project samples you can evaluate to know what you’re getting.

TECHNICAL PROFICIENCY

techinical

You’ll want to make sure your .NET software developer is well-skilled in the following languages:

  • C# syntax
  • Bootstrap
  • JavaScript
  • MVC paradigm
  • Angular JS
  • JQuery

FLEXIBLE HIRING MODELS

flexible

It’s easy for budgets to get out of control in software development. So you want a .NET developer company that provides flexible models, so they put just the right number of personnel on your project without making you spend more than the job calls for.

METHODOLOGY

methodology

What is their work flow like? Do they take a more agile approach with multiple progress updates and check-ins? Do they adopt industry standard practices? Check a prospective .NET development company’s past projects to evaluate their approach.

EFFICIENT PRICING

pricing

The market offers multiple approaches. Select the one that works best for your budget and needs. Some .NET software development companies charge by the hour, some by the day, others by a fixed pre quoted price for the entire project. Don’t be afraid to negotiate for what suits your needs.

Managing project costs

The best .NET developers will get to know all the variables in your project to anticipate budget range. They’ll work diligently to outline them all at the onset of the project for maximum transparency. The full costs of the project will include not just the development of the software but also implementing it within your company. Other variables include:

costing-in-check
  • COMPLEXITY

    If your .NET software development goals involve complex functionality and advanced coding to meet your new parameters, extra personnel and development time will be required, but your consultant will advise.

  • PROJECT LENGTH

    Every business has different scalability requirements that need to be identified and scoped for as you flesh out your project. For example, with the .NET consulting services you’re looking to engage, how many variables will affect your build? How many apps or sites are you trying to update?

  • IMPLEMENTATION

    Depending on the time developers need to write code for each screen, your costs will vary proportionally. If a social app only needs 4-5 user screens, but a business platform requires 20-30, your .NET developer company will detail how those equal very different budgets and timelines.

  • MAINTENANCE

    Reaching MVP (minimum viable product) is often just the first phase of any .NET software development project. Updates in business processes, regulations and requests for new features usually require additional coding to make things fully compliant with new requirements.

  • INFRASTRUCTURE

    An expert .NET developer, will not just execute the upgrades you need, but advise on how best to house it as well. The modern solution is typically to host it in the cloud, if you’re not doing so already. While these costs vary, it’s usually to your financial advantage to do so, but your partner can provide cost analysis comparisons for different solutions.

Avoiding project failure

Delivering industry-leading .NET consulting services always involves potential obstacles. But by taking every conceivable precaution, it’s easier to avoid frustrated parties. Aligning on expectations, timelines and logistics with your partner is 90% of the battle. In order to reach your expectations, we work with our clients to make sure they have the right support team on their end to ensure long-term viability. Be aware of the following factors:

planning

UPFRONT PLANNING

Your partner needs to know your goals, desired customers, estimated budget and your approval process up-front to stay on track and avoid surprises

deadlines

DEADLINES

If your partner feels the proposed timing is unrealistically tight to provide the best .NET development services, the smart move is to suggest an alternate timeline to avoid a disappointing final product.

iterative-process

ITERATIVE PROCESS

With a .NET developer company that believes in an iterative development process, you’ll see multiple iterations of the software as you go, allowing check-ins throughout. Regular deliverables and demos ensure a healthy awareness of development progress and a consistent feedback loop, so you there are no surprises.

communication

COMMUNICATION

Building software involves constant back & forth. With your commitment to eliminating lag-time and providing smooth, efficient, timely feedback throughout, we can complete your project on time and on budget.

A smarter collaboration process

After nearly 15 years (true here?) of successful projects in .NET development consulting, we’ve learned that the best results begin with us all being on the same page at the start. So we go out of our way to get to know your goals, end-users, logistics, variables and timelines as deeply as possible before we begin. The more we know up front, the less backtracking later. Here’s our 5-step action plan:

4.

BUILD

Here’s where our architects and developers bring your vision to reality. We loop in your team, give them the reigns, get real-time feedback and adjust, making sure you get the .NET software development services you’re looking for.

5.

LAUNCH

We’ll be right beside you as you bring your solution into the world. This is where you and your customers will truly reap the benefits of working with a top-tier .NET developer company. And as your company grows, we can help you make updates to keep things running at peak efficiency.
