We are looking for a “technical report” about the existing technology to be able to replace a Silverlight Application and a Desktop Application (both are done in C# with Telerik).
The objective of the report must show the advantage/inconvenient of those technologies, (with prices if any), following theses requirements:
- Cross-Platform mobile-app and Web-Application (Mac, Windows)
- Visual UI Designer (emulation iPhone , iPad , Android, Windows …)
- Inspect & Debug Apps
- Secure Development
- Easy Deployment
- High Dynamic Charting
- Intuitive Design to facilitate the ergonomy with an easy navigation
- Be able to Template Design & Components
x The main aspects of this technology should facilitate the separation of the design and the coding, so any designer can built different templates without possibly knowing C#.
x The technologies should facilitate the inspect and debug properly (Silverlight have a huge issue for debugging), and fully integrated with Visual Studio (2010 or 2012).
x The technologies should facilitate the development and implementation of Reporting in a easy way.
x The technologies should facilitate the implementation of Dynamic Charting (even if it’s an external library that is fully implemented), like Zooming dynamically on bars (Highchart till example).
x The technologies should be able to implement a strong security (SSL as a basic, and Certificates, Active Directory, and/or OTP Authentication), this requirement apply mainly for mobiles apps as the implementation is easily done with a Web-Based application.
x The technologies should facilitate the deployment.
x The technologies should facilitate the server based data implementation (Silverlight have a huge issue).
x The technologies should avoid data-binding in design, and should avoid any MVC structure.
What we mainly requires, is an overview of the different technologies of the market, with any possible demo, see how the code looks like, the design, the charting, the reports.. , what are the impact on Telerik ? Do we need new library ? How to handle grids ? etc...
and this technical report should be written in a good way, with any synthetic conclusion.
Any advice to migrate from Silverlight is highly appreciated.
Thanks for any quick answers; the technical report must be done before the 28th May.
