I work at a Trust Company in back office operations.
We’re currently researching RAD development environments for our internal (and maybe external ) users.
By far most of our applications are in Microsoft Access. We’d like to eventually move those to a new environment as well.
We get most of our files from our data provider early in the morning and upload them to a MS SQL Server via SSIS. The applications we have generally involve either looking at datasets from this data, then creating batch files, or comparing them to files we receive from outsourcing customers or other third parties.
I’ve been working with the trial version of alpha 5 for a couple of weeks. My focus has been on the Web Projects.
My questions are geared towards long time users of Alpha 5. In general does it sound like a good solution for what we do? Especially in terms of importing/exporting small temporary daily files. Does anyone use the web projects for these types of operations? Do users recommend using another application web page design like Dreamweaver?
Also, what do most long time users like about Alpha 5 (what does it do well or best)? And if starting over would they choose it.
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers.
