Ways to Shrink Your IT Budget without Killing Progress

  • Deploy open source

By implementing open source you can save money but don’t think it will move you backward. Enterprise companies are accepting open source in wholesale fashion for the reason that it is the tech of future.

  • Virtualize your servers

Go for virtual process instead of replacing or repairing. Though you can save the hardware cost and backups will be easier.

  • Repurpose resources

Old desktop can be used to create a powerful linux cluster. If needed networking cables can be repaired and can sell the old desktop machines on eBay.

  • Individualize your budget items

Most of the people break their budget into smaller chunks. If you need to shave away cautiously, you can break it further into different items. To make this process succeed assign the items to a member of department who has an intimate understanding of individual piece.

  • Outsource to data centers

If you have spent or been spending money on licenses for example Microsoft and that is costing you the higher percentage of the budget than migrate a local server to hosted server.

  • Go Google

There are many options that help you to save money. However, the savings can come to fruition in various ways.

For going green there are tax credits, you can save money by using greener technology as it’s not only about taxes. The money will be saved from other departments.

  • Examine your mobile purchasing policy

Manu companies pay mobile bills of their employee’s as they feel their staff members will be on official calls. I recommend you to stop footing the mobile bills for each employee.

  • Purchased used equipment

This step is risky. You invest money to purchase something and after a month it fails to respond. And when the situation is you don’t have money/budget to buy the new one you disappoint. At this moment purchasing the used item is a right solution.

  • Prioritize spending

Is for fix spending the things you can’t do without. Prioritize the items line by line that you can’t do. Make sure while prioritizing the items you spending money should also be accurate.

Top Changes in ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6

A variety of changes have been assimilated in ASP.NET 5 and MVC 6. Both are rebuilt from scratch to support the changing methods and technological agreements. It is cross-platform, open-source and work on cloud. Asp.Net 5 is considered significant-release of Asp.Net over .Net framework.

No Web Forms 

I have spent my life on web forms applications building but now it’s over. ASP.NET Web Forms is not part of ASP.NET 5.

In this new version of asp.net you will not found web forms. You can still create web forms through visual studio with .net framework 4.6.

No More Visual Basic

Now is the time to say goodbye to Visual Basic.  Asp.Net 5 only supports C# and it left the Visual Basic behind.

Support for Client-Side development:

If you ask any expert developer which client-side framework is best to create Single Page Applications then the answer will be Angular JS. ASP.NET 5 is mixed with AngularJS and it allows you to create SPAs.

Tag Helpers

It is one of the biggest features that have impact on the way that you create your views in an ASP.NET. To use traditional MVC helpers tag helpers are best alternative.

Screenshot 1

In above example the Html.BeginForm(), HTML.LabelFor() tag helpers are used to create the form.

Unified Web API and MVC Controllers and View Components:

The web API controllers were different than the MVC controllers in other versions of MVC and it uses System.Web.MVC.Controller class whereas Web API uses the System.Web.Gttp.ApiController class.

If we talk about MVC 6 no longer subcontrollers are needed instead it include view component. In ASP.NET MVC Html.Action() method are called by subcontroller where it is not invoked by MVC 6.
