In this age, startups contribute a lot in driving innovation across various industries. Not all startups succeed in their ventures however. Initially, it wasn’t easy for startups to compete and eventually surpass their already-established competitors and grow their own reputation at the same time. Software development startups, particularly, had many hurdles ahead of them at that time and they still do.
But Microsoft recently announced an initiative that could benefit startups in their run on dynamic, competitive environments – Microsoft for Startups. Also known as the Bizspark program, the initiative provides startups that lack funds for licenses and platforms an opportunity to develop and market enterprise-grade software solutions.
The ASP.NET program along with Bizspark is now considered an excellent way for startups to take their first step in the tech world. This consequently led to a rise in demand for ASP.NET development services. ASP.NET is now seen as a technology that startups can leverage for accelerated growth. We will be exploring this subject in this blog. But before we begin, here are a few facts that emphasize the importance of ASP.NET and the reason for its ever-growing popularity.
A SimilarTech research found that over 17 million websites are built using ASP.NET. According to BuiltWith, over 41 million live websites use ASP.NET in their records at present.
Let’s dig into how the popular Microsoft technology solution can help startups in 2019.
With Microsoft releasing Windows 10 IoT, startups have an opening they can utilize to grow faster in a world that’s expected to be dominated by the Internet of Things in the times to come. However, interoperability is a concern that many IoT enthusiasts have.
With ASP.NET, interoperability won’t be an issue. As a matter of fact, it’d be more secure with ASP.NET. Combined with Microsoft Azure IoT suite, the framework grants impressive open source flexibility that amplifies development speed without compromising security.
So in 2019, for startups planning to take a shot with IoT as ammunition, ASP.NET guarantees a precise aim and stability.
Security for the future
As technologies advance and IoT gains momentum, data security concerns and the increasing tenacity of cyber-criminals make startups hesitant to pool their available resources to drive innovation. ASP.NET however has evolved big enough to combat most cyber-threats with its high-end security features. The Microsoft framework’s MVC architecture makes it even easier to build scalable applications that can be easily integrated with existing business applications without opening up security holes.
The Azure harmony
We are pretty sure that the cloud holds the future for almost every kind of business that deals with new-gen technologies. For companies that rely on Microsoft platforms for growth, Microsoft Azure is an appealing and beneficial choice. But what makes Azure an ideal choice for startups is the fact that it goes hand in hand with ASP.NET. The combination has a very low fail-rate for startups that are prepared to wield them effectively. It will certainly make a difference for startups this year, and the cherry on top is that Microsoft will be there to help.
Improved versatility for mobile app development
Back in the day, it wasn’t easy for application developers to build mobile apps based on .NET. But now things have changed. .NET evolved over the years to become even more versatile than it used to be, enabling startups to build mobile apps that can provide rich user experiences without hassle.
ASP.NET has always been known for its versatility and diversity. Despite being pitted against strong rivals, the framework has been successfully retaining its demand and popularity for years. With its great flexibility and multitude of impressive features, ASP. NET is undoubtedly the most ideal web solution for startups to begin their journey to success in 2019.
