I was recently contacted by Thabo Letsoalo of eyeQuu, a South African software start-up, who has produced a SaaS (software as a service) offering built on top of Windows Azure & LightSwitch! The solution is a full work management tool, including task management & project management features! I am not going into too much detail here because the website does it far better than I can.
I often talk about LightSwitch and why it is perfect for many situations and this is a great example of a number of those situations:
- It shows what is possible with LS, besides all the form stuff there is plenty of interesting systems like charts!
- It shows off using LS as the basis for building a business. I think this is a really great LS feature because rather than being stuck into thousand of hours of development and ignoring growing the business, LS enables you to have more time to grow the business since it handles a lot of the development for you!
- I love the fact it uses Azure, showing the power of the cloud, which allows it to offer a true multi-tenant service, scale massively and maintain the costs of a start-up all at the same time!
I really urge you to go and have a look at Thabo’s fantastic site!
