In his new whitepaper “RAD Studio Guide for Managers”, Stephen looks at how RAD Studio has evolved within the broader history of software development, and how it continues to create new tooling and frameworks and supports the latest development practices and protocols. He looks at market trends impacting software development today, the evolution of cross-platform tools and approaches as an alternative to native code, and new trends such as low-code and no-code options for application development.
Weighing the pros and cons of each of these varied paths, Stephen proceeds to explain why RAD Studio represents the no-compromise option – the IDE that combines the flexibility of cross-platform with the reliability, performance and security of native code. RAD Studio compiles true native code for the latest versions of Windows, iOS, macOS, Android and Linux using a single easy-to-write, easy-to-maintain codebase.
This paper will have a broad appeal for members and leaders of software development teams, and is written for those following or evaluating market trends and possible solutions to use for both desktop and mobile applications.
