When it comes to choosing a platform for software development, most corporate customers develop habits that are hard to break.

Java Versus .NET

Choosing a development platform? Ask yourself:

  1. What languages and tools are your developers most comfortable and familiar with, and so will require less training?
  2. What kinds of tools does the platform provide to make deployment and maintenance easier?
  3. Are all of the elements you need to use in writing your application currently shipping?
  4. Do you truly need to write apps or services that run on computers other than Windows machines?
  5. Do you need and plan to use a variety of tools and middleware from different vendors?
