We can develop web, mobile, Saas applications in a fraction of time of conventional tools.

Usually, development takes a long time. With AwareIM we are knocking out products so quickly our marketing team can't keep up. Also if someone comes to us with an idea, they are shocked to see a working prototype in a couple of days.

Pros

AwareIM is fully integrated with database, logic, security, web, mobile, and desktop. Coming for a 4GL C/S tool, it took 5 years of looking at other products to find a similar tool for web development until I found AwareIM. Every other product when it came to logic, it required coding in javascript, etc. AwareIM uses English like statements, has built in security, handles or the database automatically including any DB changes. The speed of development is unmatched. We can prototype a working a full app, in a couple of days. The ability to use the same logic but have different screens for different types of users makes development for mobile, tablets a breeze. There is no tool that can compare to this if you want speed of development, ease of mainteance, built in security; basically everything in one package. It's very rare that when working in a system that you marvel at the genius of it. You will with AwareIm.

Cons

Everything that we requested, mainly mobile, and adding PhoneGap has been added. The only thing we would prefer is if AwareIM had an online activation server. If we want to move our C/S application using PSQL we can click deactivate and it will then allow us to activate on another system. With AIM it requires a written request and although it has never been an issue, there may be times in the evening, weekends we may want to move to a different server. In defense of that, AwareIM will work for 30 days. We just prefer the ability to activate and deactivate on our own.

AwareIM - Best application development software platform

Extremely satisfied with adopting AwareIM as my organisation's main application development platform. The end users have been very impressed with the applications produced using AwareIM.

Pros

AwareIM is a very well structured application development platform and takes care of creating the entire user interface of an application using clever visual perspective controls. The software allows a developer to build an entire application database structure behind the scenes without needing specialist database administration skills and SQL knowledge. Using AwareIM's version control and testing tools makes prototyping ideas for a proof of concept a very simple task before progressing to full application development. The sample applications, documentation and video tutorials that are available, provide excellent reference for building any application. This is all well complemented by excellent support from the AwareIM team and an active developer community.

Cons

It is an extremely addictive software application, so tend to spend hours using AwareIM without getting bored :)

Reasons for Choosing Aware IM

The speed of developing software applications. The company's claim that with AwareIM you can build software 10 times faster than the fastest product is grossly understated. It is great value for money.

Reasons for Switching to Aware IM

The speed of application development using AwareIM. Microsoft Access had limitations and didn't cater for scalability in a large multiuser customer base.

AWAREIM review from a newbie

Poor customer service/internal company support. Great community of long time developers who offer help getting through some tough spots. Without that help form the community, AwareIM would have been a complete bust. AwareIM is just not a robust enough product for creating a SaaS web product. I am sure its great for small "one-off" projects, or projects developed by long time AwareIM experts. If you are building a company around a product, use an established python framework product like Django.

Pros

Get up to speed very quickly for basic features, ease of deployment

Cons

UI is very clunky. Difficult to deliver a polished, professional looking UI unless you are an HTML/Javascript expert, or someone that has used the product for years. Internal support was poor, so getting advanced features to work was next to impossible.

Reasons for Choosing Aware IM

I chose AwareIM prematurely, but quite honestly I did not have the web skills to use python frameworks.

Hi David, thank you for your review. Just one question - why did you say that our customer support was poor? It is not free as support is not included in your license, but once you pay for it, it is the best money can buy. Lots of our customers can attest to it. So we are a bit puzzled and disappointed by such an assessment.

AwareIM- Magic for the web!

Overall, I am very happy with AwareIM. It allows me to develop large scale applications that would normally take a team of developers to create. I am able to create POC quickly and customize the application as much as it needs.

Pros

AwareIM allows you to develop applications in less time. Its business rule based engine allows for managing business logic in a simple manner from each table or Business Object as they are called in AwareIM. Creating queries and forms is fast. Built in library of Kendo UI widgets is very nice and expanding with each new release. Customization using CSS, HTML, java script is endless.

Cons

Report writer needs to be improved. It based on Jasper Reports but has limited features compared to the Jasper Reports itself. Processing a lot of records can be slow.

Reasons for Choosing Aware IM

Licensing was a lower cost, allows for creating browser based applications. Not a steep learning curve.

Reasons for Switching to Aware IM

Cost and features for creating browser based applications

Coming from MS Access Development to Aware IM has been so easy

The team at Aware IM, especially [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN], have been amazing with the training and support they have offered. They have been a pleasure to deal with.

Pros

I am a MS Access Developer of 28 years and have written many commercial level programs using that platform. I looked for quite a while to find a replacement for my clients who were using MS Access and I found Aware IM. I found the software to be very easy to use, very intuitive, and the How to Use, User Manual & all the Training Videos made the process so easy. The team at Aware IM were very responsive and gave me several one-on-one training sessions when I requested them. So far I have built 6 systems using the program, two of which will be rolled out to clients in the next 6 months. My customers seem to be very happy with the results so far and with the cost of the licence.

Cons

There has been a bit of an issue with linking current clients' SQL Server Data where the Foreign Key should link all the tables together. This is a bit hit and miss with the naming convention as you cannot use the same field name as the primary key in either of the tables. I am still trying to work away round this issue.

Reasons for Choosing Aware IM

HyperOffice, based in the USA, was described as far better than it actually was when I started using the demo. Caspio was so expensive, that I would never have been able to sell it to my clients as a replacement for MS Access.

Reasons for Switching to Aware IM

Microsoft will not be supporting MS Access moving forward so I felt it was time to start looking for a web based, replacement for my clients.
