Summary:

The article talks about the best fit for specific organizations in regards to a development tool. Is Microsofts MVC solution, based on ASP.net and templates, the right tool? the answer is it depends. MVC allows for rapid web form and site develpment so if the organization needs things done quickly and dont particualry care about the look of the site or the functionality this is the way to go. The author states that it isnt that MVC is not modern looking and doesnt provide a good amount of templates that are professional, but they are not very customizable. A lot of it is “out of the box” and WYSIWYG so to speak. Again not that it isnt effective and not to say that it does not get the project done, becuase it does. Now if your organization wants a very customizable web form then they should look at a different development enviornment using things like JavaScript and/or PHP.

Opinion:

Having used MS Visual Studio I have to say that I agree with this and I have to say that it does depend on what the organization needs and business processes require. I can atest to the fact that the web form and site development cycle is increase tremendously with MS Visual Studio. There are a lot of drag and droppable components as well as many pre-buiot templates. The little customizing you can do is very easily accomplished with a couple of clicks and you can edit the properties with ease.

I want to also add that with JavaScript you can enhance the “out of the box” features of ASP.net, whcih can give you the best of both worlds. You will still have the ASP foundation, but it is further customizable. You can also integrate other technologies with ASP failry easy. Things like Telerik and JQuery.
