Backbase and Microsoft Atlas Compared

Category: Editorial

Backbase has published a comparison between their product and Microsoft Atlas. Obviously, there may be some bias ;) but it is worth hearing their thoughts.

The article compares:

  • Core architecture on both frameworks
  • Single and multi-page interfaces
  • Components and building blocks
  • Programming model
  • .NET integration

Conclusion

Atlas is currently in a very early stage, and it will take some time before it can be used in production systems, probably at least 6 months. It can definitively evolve into an interesting AJAX product, but it’s really too early to say. Although the main web browsers are supported, server-side support is limited to Windows/.NET. So if you don’t use .NET, you’re better off other AJAX engines. Even if you use .NET, you should carefully consider which functionality you need, and when you need it. If you need a solution now or if you need an advanced client-side development environment, more mature solutions such as Backbase could be a good choice for you.
