Opens Software Platforms - PHP & MYSQL
In Eye Media Australia's 15 years of innovation, we have participated in the trend towards developing, supporting and hosting open software applications. The binary approach of the 1990's where our clients were either fanatically IBM/Lotus only or Microsoft only, has become the exception rather than the rule.
While Eye Media maintains its senior developer status and experience for all proprietary technologies, we have led the trend to become 'platform agnostic' - choosing the best mix of technologies for their relevance and value. Often, open software is the sensible choice for elements - if not the entirety - of a technology project.
PHP and MySQL are examples of open software platforms that have risen to become a significant part of Eye Media's developments, for very good reasons:
- no licensing costs
- very rapid development times
- flexible (a 'blank canvas' without the built-in assumptions of proprietary platforms)
- huge worldwide pool of developers
- scalable from the smallest to the most complex and demanding applications
The question is, if open platforms like PHP and MySQL have tens of thousands of developers worldwide, why choose Eye Media? It is the very flexibility of these platforms that make it all too easy to create bad software. The 'blank canvas' benefits all too often result in systems that are unstructured and chaotic. Eye Media's legacy of over 300 innovative development projects, plus our established project methodology, unleash the benefits of open software, without the potential pitfalls.
We welcome you to meet with us to explore the benefits of Eye Media Australia’s experience and passion for innovation.
