The controls and tools we provide aim at helping developers build their web applications fast and with beautiful UI that comes out of the box. This lets you focus on your application logic and data.
Since each case is unique, there is no singular answer to your question. What I can say is that we have had reports that indicate using our tools saves as much as 50% of the development time for an application. You can find some feedback from clients of ours in the following pages:
Pros and cons are also very dependent on the concrete case and individual. Her are a couple of obvious ones:
- pros: cut down development time; get consistent UI in all supported browsers; get rich features and API out of the box; get customization options to plug your application logic.
- cons: you have to include a third party library in your project; there is some learning curve as with any new tool
As for access to Intranet apps developed by our clients - I am afraid I cannot help with that. Even we at Telerik do not have such access.
