In the rich .NET ecosystem, it’s easy to get caught up in minute, feature-related details when user experience matters most to today’s users. Using Infragistics controls, developers can build groundbreaking user experiences and rich data visualizations that transform how end users interact with data. Its components are available across all .NET platforms, including Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), ASP.NET and Silverlight. It also offers comprehensive component suites as well as exciting new components for jQuery, Reporting, and Mobile for Windows Phone 7, iPhone and Android, some of which will be available later this year.
“The market has definitely changed,” said Jason Beres, VP of Product Management at Infragistics. “Increasingly, we’re finding that developers are not just interested in features. They want controls and tools that are easy to use and visually appealing. We’re having much broader conversations about user experience.”
Infragistics offers Windows Forms, WPF, ASP.NET and Silverlight controls for line-of-business applications that can be purchased individually or collectively as the NetAdvantage for .NET suite. NetAdvantage for .NET is particularly beneficial to software teams using more than one .NET platform simultaneously who do not require data visualization controls.
NetAdvantage Ultimate adds WPF Data Visualization and Silverlight Data Visualization controls to the Windows Forms, WPF, ASP.NET and Silverlight controls found in NetAdvantage for .NET. NetAdvantage Ultimate includes lightning-fast data grids across platforms and many other high-performance controls for building high-end business intelligence solutions.
“We’ve been innovating a lot on the Silverlight and WPF sides, and now we’re moving to mobile,” said Beres. “In Q2, we’ll have XAML Windows Phone 7 controls that use the same XAML and API we’ve been using for the last 18 months in our Silverlight and WPF products to provide a consistent UI across platforms.”
Because different platforms have different APIs, developers can take advantage of the nuances to improve application performance. Infragistics helps software teams embrace native platform details while moving effortlessly between them, including mobile platforms. What’s more, developers can achieve consistent user experience across platforms with a UI that delivers a common look and feel.
