For the past two months I’ve been developing a full ERP featured system using Microsoft Lightswitch for a financing company, and this is of course aside from my daily ERP implementation and software development routine. So far I find it intuitive and easy to develop considering that it is fully deployed using IIS 7. Below is the screen shot of the system running on Firefox, more or less it looks like our MS Access application as time goes by.
I haven’t maximize yet the reportorial capability of Entity Framework via RIA Service and yet I can make a complicated SUM UP report like Income Statement on a breeze. See screen shot below.
If Microsoft keeps creating tools to leverage us, system developers and process engineers sooner or later the cloud will be crowded.
