TEKenable uses a range of Microsoft and other Technologies to deliver solutions to our customers. Key platforms include:


C# .NET Framework and Visual Studio

    TEKenable have built a large number of complex solutions for banks, insurance companies and government departments using C# on the .NET Framework. We develop in this framework because:

  • C# is an elegant, type-safe, object oriented language
  • C# may be used to create a wide range of applications including Windows client applications, XML web services, distributed components, client-server applications and database applications
  • C# programs run on the .NET Framework, an integral component of Windows that includes a virtual execution system called the common language runtime (CLR) and a unified set of class libraries
  • The development of applications takes place within Visual Studio – a complete suite of tools for building both desktop and team-based enterprise web applications
