True Enterprise Quality vs Simple Apps

Graphite Studio has been built from ground up to be an enterprise class application builder while most other low-code platforms are used to build peripheral applications. Features such as SOX compliance, data concurrency support, authorization controls, multi-language and multi-currency are inherently built into Graphite Studio developed applications. Security protection against attacks such as Cross Browser Scripting, SQL injection are standard and out-of-the-box with Graphite Studio generated applications.

Standard Code vs Proprietary

Graphite Studio generates standard Visual Studio projects. Unlike other competitors in the low-code space, when you build your project in Graphite Studio, you own the code. Graphite Studio generates documented, human-readable source code that can be viewed and edited independent of Graphite Studio.

Deployment Freedom vs Proprietary Runtime

Graphite Studio built applications run on IIS without any other installation. Other platforms require proprietary runtime engines, limiting your options significantly when deploying your applications. Graphite Studio does not restrict access once an application is built and deployed.

Future Proof Development vs Short Sighted

Graphite Studio produces standard code and architecture recommended by Microsoft. This allows seamless upgrades to the generated code as new design patterns and languages emerge from Microsoft, providing an advantage to keep ahead of competition. Other low-code vendors do not have this provision as their language or x-code is upgraded at their whim-and-fancy.

OOP Development vs Imperative

Applications generated by Graphite Studio contain all features a well architected modern web application should bring to the table. A programmer can at any time open the Visual Studio Project and confirm that these features are in fact being generated. All OOP features such as inheritance, polymorphism, abstraction and encapsulation are built into Graphite Studio.

Integration both exposing and consuming a service is achieved with a few clicks, thus making all applications SOA compliant. Graphite Studio provides developers the ability to connect to external binaries, extending integration capabilities.
