Thank you for your feedback on Telerik OpenAccess ORM.
's overview and recommendations I would like to clarify some misconceptions.
1. OpenAccess ORM is completely free, but it has a dedicated team
in Telerik which is developing new features and releasing major improvements at least 6 times per year. It is a mature product as well - only in Telerik we are working on it for 5 years already, and it has been developed by another company for several years before being acquired by Telerik. The maturity of the product in comparison with others is also clearly visible in the huge set of free learning resources
that we are maintaining - full documentation
of all features (almost 1000 articles), Knowledge Base section, dozens of video tutorials
, full-blown Samples Kit
with over 40 solutions demonstrating OpenAccess ORM integration and this forum which already has above 3000 threads and 14000 posts in total.
2. The tools and features developed specifically for performance tuning
available in Telerik OpenAccess ORM are numerous. I would recommend this blog post
for a quick overview of only a few of them.
3. The reason behind Sitefinity choosing OpenAccess ORM are that there are no other ORM products on the market (that we know of), that support the rich set of features
OpenAccess ORM provides for enterprise data layers, including the ability to work with dynamic modules by creating and removing types even during runtime
4. In case you experienced any difficulties while working Model First
with OpenAccess ORM, we will be thankful if you can share them - we might be able to help and guide you so that you can achieve your goals.
, thank you for the nice words about our support services. I have noticed that two years ago you have experienced some limitations with our stored procedures support
. I am happy to inform you that in the meantime one of the many improvements we have implemented is the Domain Method Editor
- this short video
can present its capabilities. For more complex case you can still use the ADO API
directly. In case you had any other needs that OpenAccess ORM failed to satisfy, let us know and they might be addressed in our future releases.
Do not hesitate to share with us any further feedback on OpenAccess ORM you have - it always counts when we make our future plans.
