    Supply Chain Management (SCM), Field Service Management (FSM), Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP)... these and other similar types of enterprise systems all share a common theme of managing and optimizing 'resources'.

Enterprise systems require flexibility, being able to view and strategically position Resources so that the Who's doing What, Where, When and Why - can all be managed with intuitive Drag and Drop data presentations.  DBI's data management and presentation component software - Solutions Schedule and Studio Controls have been the go-to standards for Enterprise Windows developers for 21 years.

Jonathan L. with a long time customer providing commercial Warehouse Management Systems in Europe, was setting up a new development system. In the course of building the new system he looked to activate an archive installation of Solutions Schedule .NET v1.0 (released in 2005) which was originally implemented in the development of their software. To say the least, much has transpired since the release of Solutions Schedule .NET v1.0 in 2005. Through the course of our conversation and a quick overview of the latest enhancements crafted into Solutions Schedule .NET 7.0, the current shipping and Windows 10 supported product - Jonathan downloaded the current evaluation license and tested it out on a copy of their solution.

In the copy of their application Jonathan changed the references from dbiScheduleE.dll version 1.0 to dbiScheduleE.dll version 7.0 and within an astonishing brief 20 minutes he was starting to implement new features in their application, without having to recode or rewrite any of the original code. Twelve years after their original purchase of Solutions Schedule .NET upgraded to the latest version and picked up without missing a beat!

In Jonathan's own words..."I did a fast test and I was able to use Solutions Schedule .NET  v7.0 with only 20min of work. That is definitely incredible backward compatibility."

    Upgrade COM Controls - Quickly  
Drag and Drop Scheduling and UI Design for Any OLE compliant Development       
  DBI's current suite of COM software component solutions make upgrading legacy controls to the latest supported and Windows 10 certified versions much simpler. Even in the most persnickety of development environments - including Visual Cobol.  (watch for our Case in Point next month)

Open a copy of your application and instance the new ctx version of the control right beside the legacy control - two different versions of a control side by side.  Now, move your legacy control settings over to the new ctx version.  Remove the old instance. Build.   Much Quicker.
