Microsoft .Net Overview
The Microsoft .NET platform is revolutionizing the way applications are being developed for the Internet. Employing open standards and web service protocols, .NET greatly enables businesses to collaborate over the Internet with minimal investment thereby improving the interoperability of systems and easing communication across organizations and platforms. Companies can easily utilize these applications to extract data from customers, suppliers and partners. It also enables them to stay connected to their business partners more efficiently and cost effectively.
