Whitepaper: Development Solution and Framework Total Cost of Ownership and Return on Investment Study

by Valley View VenturesJan 01, 2008

This paper from Infostructure Associates summarizes the results of an Infostructure Associates study comparing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and return on investment (ROI) of higher-level development solutions, such as Progress 4GL plus the Progress OpenEdge framework, to so-called third-generation language development tools, such as those offered for the C# programming language by Microsoft in Visual Studio .NET 2003 with its .NET Framework platform. The paper particularly focuses on TCO and ROI for those SMBs (Small-to-Medium-sized Businesses) or departments/divisions of large enterprises attempting to create or upgrade mission-critical applications for internal use.
