Cincom Smalltalk’s Answer to the Web App Development Demand

Posted on in Categories Smalltalk, Web Applications

In “The Move to Digital Business Demands Investment in Five Classes of Technology,” Gartner’s Jim Tully and Tom Austin state:

“This accelerating pace places great strains on current technologies and on the approaches used to implement new solutions. The required speed of deployment will require nontraditional approaches to development and operation. In addition, the uncertainties of new and emerging digital business models will require solutions that provide much greater flexibility to allow for adjustments as the business evolves.” 

With web development moving so quickly, businesses are forced to deal with challenges never before seen.  Cincom Smalltalk™ addresses these challenges by simplifying the development process for our users, while maintaining the flexibility and scalability that these new technologies require.
