Abstract: Effective risk management has always been a feature of the best IT projects, and it's never been so important as today.
Radically simplifying COM and CORBA development
Only Borland C++Builder 4 masters data-intensive distributed applications
Since most distributed applications involve data manipulation, Borland C++Builder 4 has unrivaled facilities for accessing, aggregating, analyzing, and displaying distributed data.
Borland C++Builder 4 is the fastest route to data wherever it lies
The foundation of the Borland C++Builder 4 data facilities is a flexible, high-performance database engine.
Borland C++Builder 4 is the only C++ development tool that includes all the facilities required to develop distributed database and Oracle8 applications.
Borland C++Builder 4 provides the most powerful capabilities for high-performance data analysis and decision support.
Borland C++Builder 4 includes BusinessInsight, a collection of highly sophisticated data-aware decision support components (such as graphs, grids, and pivots) that are proven to save weeks of work when building first-class information applications. Every component can automatically function without change, regardless of the data format or source, reducing development time when updating applications to include new information.
An example of the power of the BusinessInsight components is the new grid component, which will intelligently morph itself to display data in the most intuitive way. All the features normally found only in reporting tools (such as aggregates, banding, and subtotals) are now features of this grid.
Only Borland C++Builder 4 includes BusinessInsight for delivering the most powerful and easy-to-use decision support applications.
Borland C++Builder 4 applications scale gracefully to handle many users and large volumes of data with a lower cost of development
It's ironic, but the more successful an application becomes, the more the chance there is of it failing. Increased clients and sessions place stresses on the system that may not have been anticipated at the time of specification.
As applications become dependent on live connections and data from legacy systems, unanticipated system loads can have a 'knock-on' or 'domino' effect on the whole IT infrastructure. For example, a Web-based application that links directly into an order entry system and database might receive an unusually large load after a publicity campaign. This could potentially overload the database and legacy system. A distributed architecture ensures that Borland C++Builder 4 applications scale gracefully.
Only Borland C++Builder 4 includes all the facilities required to ensure that applications can scale to handle many users and large volumes of data.
Borland C++Builder 4 solutions are robust, easy-to-use, and secure
Borland C++Builder 4 applications are easy-to-use and always available
As more and more of an organization's applications become 'customer-facing' either through the Internet or extranets, the user interface to IT infrastructure becomes an extension of the corporation's brand. For the same reasons companies keep their delivery trucks clean and new, their applications need to be great-looking and easy to use. Moreover, the service applications must be available for use on a 7 x 24 basis: downtime on customer-oriented services results in lost revenue and low customer satisfaction.
Borland C++Builder 4 provides stability in a number of areas to ensure that applications are robust, easy to use, and secure:
Borland C++Builder 4 delivers the most robust distributed C++ applications.
Borland C++Builder 4 operates sophisticated pan-enterprise security
Enterprise Development teams must not only ensure that all parts of the application are secure, but the security measures do not overburden the end users. Even though the information delivered by an application might come from a number of different systems, the user should only be required to login once.
Borland C++Builder 4 provides full support for transaction management and user authentication across distributed systems by providing seamless support for middleware such as ITS and MTS.
Borland C++Builder 4 delivers an elegant solution to total distributed application security.
Borland C++Builder 4 delivers unrivaled support for distributed application debugging and deployment
Many application development projects fail while being tested, or while being deployed. This is partly because any design and performance problems are likely to become an issue at this stage. Also, in many circumstances, the application has 'show-stopping' bugs that simply cannot be tracked down, let alone be eradicated.
Borland C++Builder 4 delivers the best debugging capabilities for quickly delivering the highest-quality applications
Developers building Borland C++Builder 4 applications typically spend less time debugging, speeding the time to application deployment (and keeping the morale of development teams high). This is because:
Borland C++Builder 4 reduces debugging time required to deploy quality applications.
Borland C++Builder 4 applications are easy to deploy and cost virtually nothing to manage
Borland C++Builder 4 makes it easy to deploy and manage applications on a global and distributed basis. It delivers the full spectrum of client and server applications, ranging from zero-maintenance thin-client applications to powerful Web server applications. In particular, there are a number of capabilities within Borland C++Builder 4 that can dramatically reduce application deployment and maintenance costs.
Borland C++Builder 4 makes deploying low-maintenance thin-client applications easy.
