Infragistics Gives Developers the Tools to Propel Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Products and Technologies-Based Web Applications Into Web 2.0 Experiences

PRINCETON, N.J. and Elstree, United Kingdom, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Infragistics, the world leader in presentation layer development tools, today announced a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Products and Technologies reference application built with NetAdvantage for ASP.NET that simplifies User Interface (UI) development and creates engaging and compelling Web 2.0 user experiences within Office SharePoint Server 2007 or Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 environments.

Pomegranate, one of the first UI-centric Office SharePoint Server Products and Technologies reference application made available by a component vendor, demonstrates how a property & casualty insurance company using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 can leverage Infragistics NetAdvantage for ASP.NET controls to create an information portal usable by agents in the field to remotely monitor their franchise business data and Key Performance Indicators (KPI). Using the tools included in NetAdvantage for ASP.NET, developers can easily create rich, customized Web Parts for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0-based applications.

"We are pleased to see Infragistics providing developers with the tools and resources to build rich, interactive ASP.NET Web-based applications," said Joe Marini, Director of the Visual Studio Industry Partner program in the Developer Tools Ecosystem team at Microsoft Corp. "Pomegranate is a great example of how developers can more quickly create engaging and informative UIs for SharePoint-based applications that improves user experiences and help facilitate productivity."

Data visualization is a key component of NetAdvantage for ASP.NET. Using NetAdvantage for ASP.NET, developers can quickly and easily create custom Web Parts and then turnaround and use these Web Parts to create feature-rich, consistently styled UIs for Office SharePoint Server Products and Technologies-based applications. NetAdvantage for ASP.NET ensures rapid application development and empowers developers with the flexibility to add UI enhancements ranging from streamlined data grids to easily understandable charts and gauges to their Office SharePoint Server Products and Technologies-based applications.

Additionally, the native AJAX capabilities of NetAdvantage for ASP.NET controls alleviate the need to build custom AJAX behaviors into Web Parts. With a couple of property settings, developers can dramatically improve the end user experience and propel an Office SharePoint Server Products and Technologies-based Web application into a Web 2.0 experience.
