Every function has its buzzwords. In IT, we're all about the "ities." Agility, mobility, reliability, scalability, possibility. And while their overuse makes these terms seem trivial, they are anything but. In developing apps that work for today's customers, these are the things that matter.

And to make them a reality, you need a framework that supports them. A framework that provides a consistent programming environment that allows you to create more reliable, secure systems and gives you tools to transform what you're building.

Choices, choices

There are plenty of frameworks out there to choose from. And each has its own advantages. Microsoft.NET, for instance, is program-language agnostic with a common language runtime and Framework Class Library that make things radically simple. The library provides tested, reusable code that developers can use in their own applications and the programming language of their choice. And, the code library adds a layer of security, promoting safe execution of code, even when created by an unknown or semi-trusted third party.

In addition, it plays well with others. At SAP, for instance, we can integrate over our stack with a Microsoft stack.
