Shield UI has recently given out 12 new controls in addition to their Web Development Suite to boost the power and integrity of their suite flagship for better controls on charts and grids.
Shield UI lead developer Dave Johnson has stated that while other companies aim to overwhelm users by several controls that cover ground in one go, Shield UI aims to allow controls to mature with their rich content, letting users get the hang of it instead of just bombing them with several controls all at once. The original developers aren’t moved to other teams or to work on other products, but instead focus on future improvements and updates.
You can sign up for a free trial version by going to www.shieldui.com. Aside from the free trial, the complete control bundle can be obtained from two packages – the “Free for Non-Commercial Use” which lets you use Shield UI for free as long as it’s for personal use or non-commercial tasks; and the Standard Commercial bundle. Both of these packages come with a support pack that’s available 24/7.
Shield UI plans on extending their product’s size two times by the mid-2014 due to the demand of developers that want rich web development suites and tools that come with a variety of controls. Shield UI is also aiming for a more secure availability of controls through the use of JAVA, MVC, and ASP.NET.
Shield UI is also working on integrating their components to an existing online report and sharing system through Reportivo. This allows easy data uploads and simpler operations. Visualizations can also be customized through the website’s UI or through API. This service comes as free and lets you share generated reports and even embed it to any site.
