Before starting with the development, it is advisable to be conscious about which platform do we choose for our developers’ team and make sure it is same throughout the floor. Certainly, the system of this kind has to be reliable and able to process a high number of requests. This includes processing services, a desktop client and mobile applications for all major platforms.
Looking forward to the technology trends, Microsoft .NET provides two main technologies for the desktop applications: Win Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). It gives complex software solutions for every aspect of app production and implementation.
In the case of an emergency, the information about an incident comes from dispatchers and the staff that use smartphones and specific mobile devices. The dispatchers use the desktop client application, which displays the information about each active incident, builds charts, gives reports, generate statistics and provides access to all types of data in the system.
The solution is much similar to mobility trends used nowadays. It is the ability of mobile devices to contribute as a content source in the digital world and integrate innovations to best of the web and desktop worlds elevates the role of enterprise mobility. One can use the Xamarin technology, actively supported by Microsoft, allows you to use the .NET Framework for developing one application for Windows Phone, iOS, and Android operating systems at the same time.
Alternatively, we can host such applications on private clouds such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Now, the next step is to manage all the unstructured data in a correct format. The information about active incidents is stored in the document database because it’s much easier to store temporary unstructured data in the non-relational schema-less database. On the contrary, all the data that is rarely changed and archive data about incidents are stored in the relational database. Finally, we can say that. NET works on relational and documentary database. For example, you can go for the Mongo DB with their official .NET driver that gives quite good support to language-integrated queries (LINQ).
Talking about .NET Framework, it is a mature well-documented and well-structured platform with a great support of the community. It is Microsoft’s comprehensive and consistent programming model for building applications that have visually stunning user experiences and solutions.
To sum up, we can say that .NET environment provides everything we need. There are a number of libraries, frameworks, tools, IDEs, documentation available for the.NET. To get started with your .net application, contact Brainvire today.
