Many companies are challenged with building and maintaining robust enterprise applications that will evolve to meet business needs. While the IT organisation is charged with developing and deploying .NET applications as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, it also must ensure a consistently positive user experience.Avanade experts have years of experience in developing and implementing successful .NET applications for enterprise customers worldwide. To accelerate consistent, high-quality enterprise application development on the .NET platform, Avanade has built a proven asset, the Avanade Connected Architectures® for .NET (ACA®.NET). If used consistently across an organisation, this framework—which combines commonly used components, development patterns, and software factories to help your team auto-generate complex and time-consuming code artefacts—can greatly reduce the total cost of ownership through shared services and resources. Our unique framework includes:Framework Foundation: The framework foundation is based on Microsoft® Enterprise Library 4.0 and provides pre-built and easily configurable services that can be used out of the box to integrate common functionality such as logging, caching, cryptography, validation, and data access, as well as policies to encapsulate common architecture code from the main application. These services encompass the .NET framework core component to ensure consistency and accuracy in development, regardless of your staff members’ skill and experience levels.Framework Services: ACA.NET glues the foundation and models together by providing configurable implementations of common design patterns such as data extensibility and code/decode with an easy-to-use administration console.Framework Models: The ACA.NET Service Factory and Web Factory provide a model-driven surface that accelerates development. The model represents applications as shapes on a diagram and auto-generates code, which accelerates development by producing seamlessly updated model changes and uniform code that is easy to maintain and understand, even among multiple parties on a large development team.
