Why Visual Data's JumpStart?

Visual Data Webservices has developed a new way of developing business applications.
This is called: "Visual Data's Smart Database Concept".

What are the benefits of this radical new way of software development for you as an entrepeneur?
The main thing that entrepeneurs are looking for is reliable information that is produced by reliable information systems. They are constant on the lookout for applicatoins that do just the right thing; not too much and not too little. Quick, reliable and just.
By taking your datamodel as the starting point for your information system, Visual Data's JumpStart ensures you that you only get an application that handles your data, not more, not less.
And by putting your business logic directly into the datamodel, Visual Data's JumpStart also ensures you that the application will perform the right tasks on the right way and on the right time, also, not more, not less.

Are these the only benefits?     NO!!!!
Apart from the business point of view on the functionability of business applications, such as user friendliness, response and performance there are some more not direct visible benefits.
Lets talk about realisation of the application.
Traditional application building is a time consuming labour. Database development, programming, testing, deployment, bug-fixing and so on....
Visual Data's JumpStart works in a total other concept: The code is generated by a software factory, developed by Visual Data Webservices. This software factory is called: "The ApplicationBuilder".
It takes the datamodel, created in the so called "The DatabaseBuilder", and generates the code, and does that over and over again, every time any alteration or addition af an extension is needed. This means that the produced code will always be consistent in its structure.
Not much of a concern for you? Well, there are some huge improvements that will affect you.
Lets summarize:
  • Consistent code is easy to maintain by various programmers and testers because they know where things can be found.
  • Generating code is very quick. It takes about 60 seconds to generate one table module. (this can up to a week by hand).
  • Expanding functionality is done from the basis, the datamodel. No extensions in the code that no-one understands anymore.
  • The learning curve for your employees is relatively short because all modules behave the same.

Imagine, you have an information system that was build several years ago by a software builder as a custom made application.
What are the changes that the developers, who designed, build and tested your application, are still present when you need an extension on your application? Would anybody of the now available developers know all about the ins and outs from the program that was made that time ago? That is hard to imagine. Any new developer must dig in and gets to understand the code just to be able to build the upgrade or extension. That wil cost time.
And then, when this new code is delivered, who is able to test and regression test the new stuff? Can you totally be sure that everything works fine as before, and the new code as well? How much time (and money!) would this cost you?

This is where Visual Data's JumpStar kicks in.
