In this article, I would like to talk about a software program called Blesta and a software program called Quick Base. First, I would like to give a brief introduction of each one. Next, I would like to point out the integration of the two systems. Thirdly, I will highlight the benefits from the combination of the two systems. Finally, I will conclude my writing by giving some ideas for further research.
Blesta is an application for designing web pages and other types of applications. It has many features like, creating tables, charts, HTML/CSS code, images etc (Blesta, 2009. It also allows designers to cplaborate with each other on the design. This feature helps in enhancing the efficiency of the development process. The next feature is that it allows designers to integrate with many other applications like Google maps, Youtube videos, Flickr, Bing maps etc (Blesta, 2009. The ability to integrate these applications helps in enhancing the functionality of the web site. Last but not the least, it has the feature of building non-programming applications (Blesta, 2009. This feature makes it very useful for users who are not well versed with programming languages.

Quick Base is a software program for creating business applications. It has features like CRM (Customer Relationship Management), Human Resource Management (HRM), Accounting, Project Management (PM), E-Commerce etc (Quick Base, 2009. It can be used for small data sets as well as large data sets. It also allows users to create custom forms for their needs (Quick Base, 2009. Quick Base has all the basic features of any good application. However it has some extra features which make it very useful for users. These features are Phone Integration, Email Integration, RSS Feeds etc (Quick Base, 2009. These features help users who want to connect their data to the rest of the world.

The benefits of integration of Blesta and Quick Base are numerous. First of all it reduces the time taken for development. Second of all it reduces the cost associated with development. Lastly it increases the quality of the application that is being developed. Let’s discuss each one in detail.
Reduction in Time Taken For Development
The first benefit of integrating Blesta and Quick Base is reduction in time taken for development. One of the most common problems faced by developers is time management. If they have to develop an application completely from scratch then they have to learn programming languages like Java or C++ etc., They have to learn how to use frameworks like Struts or Hibernate etc., They have to write all the business logic which invpves writing lot of code which can be redundant at times etc., They have to set up necessary environment on their machines which takes lot of time etc., Then comes testing which invpves finding bugs and fixing them which can be time consuming as well. All these steps take lot of time and sometimes they don’t even get completed within scheduled time period because of various reasons like hardware/software failure or lack of experience or just pure laziness etc. This problem is spved when you use a combination of Blesta and Quick Base because you don’t have to go through all these steps described above if you use a combination of Blesta and Quick Base. You can use Blesta for designing your application and you can use Quick Base for developing it and connecting it to other applications which saves lot of time and money. Therefore there you don’t need to learn anything new when using this combination because you already know how to use Blesta and Quick Base individually. Using this combination also allows you to develop your application quickly because you don’t need to wait for weeks before coming up with a prototype like in case you were using only Blesta or only Quick Base.
Reduction in Cost Associated with Development
Reduction in cost associated with development is another benefit derived from using this combination. When we talk about cost we mean two things. cost incurred in terms of money and cost incurred in terms of time. In case you were developing your application from scratch then you have spent money on buying computers or setting up servers or buying licenses for necessary software or taking training from experts which all add up together and become a huge amount which you have to spend before seeing any results from your investment. In case you were using only Blesta then you would have needed an experienced programmer who can develop your application from scratch or at least someone who can teach you how to do so so that you can work on it yourself later on after learning a few things which can also cost a huge amount depending on your requirements etc., Before going into development process you would have had to spend money on licenses for programming languages, frameworks etc., In both cases you end up spending a huge amount before actually getting any results from your investments which can be very discouraging for an entrepreneur who doesn’t have much money to invest initially in his venture etc., In case you were using only Quick Base then you would have needed a developer who knows how to use Quick Base properly and you would have had to spend money on licenses for Quick Base etc., You would have had to spend money on web hosting fees etc., Again here you end up spending a huge amount before getting any results from your investment which can be very discouraging for an entrepreneur who doesn’t have much money to invest initially in his venture etc., Nevertheless using this combination saves you both time and money because if you use Blesta for designing your application then there is no need for any extra training or hiring an expert etc., Secondly you don’t need to pay anyone to develop your application because all you need is Quick Base for that which means that there is no extra expenditure on licenses or any other things required for development etc., Finally there is no need for web hosting fees because there is no need for any server because Quick Base runs on cloud computing platform i.e. it runs on servers which are provided by its owner i.e Quick Base itself (Quick Base, 2009. Thus using this combination saves you both time and money which makes it very beneficial for an entrepreneur who doesn’t have much money to invest initially in his venture etc.,
Increase in Quality of the Application That Is Being Developed
Increase in quality of the application that is being developed is another benefit derived from using this combination. Quality is dependent upon how well trained someone is when he develops applications whether he has learnt everything about software development or not or whether he is skilled enough or not or whether he knows how to use frameworks correctly or not etc., If somebody is well trained then there are less chances that he will make mistakes while developing something which will lead to better quality etc., If somebody knows how to use frameworks correctly then there are less chances that he will make mistakes while making changes to existing code base which will also lead to better quality etc., If somebody knows how to use frameworks correctly then there are less chances that he will make changes which may break something else which again leads to better quality etc., If somebody knows how to use frameworks correctly then there are less chances that product will crash frequently which again leads to better quality etc., Thus better quality means less number of bugs present in final product which means more satisfied customers which means more revenue hence more profit which is always desirable for any entrepreneur irrespective of his field etc.. Therefore using this combination will lead to better quality of the product being developed which will increase your reputation among customers thereby increasing your revenue hence profits hence increasing your business value hence helping you gain more clients thus helping you win more market share thus helping you expand your business thus leading into more revenue hence more profits hence more business value etc.. One thing that should be kept in mind though while working on this combination is that some parts should be integrated while others should not be because if some parts are integrated then they should be designed in such a way that they can stand alone too so that if they need to be used independently then they can be used independently without any problems so that they don’t become dependent upon each other unnecessarily so that if one part fails then entire system doesn’t get affected adversely unnecessarily so that if one part fails then other parts still get used without any problems so that if one part fails then another part can take its place seamlessly so that if one part fails then other parts get used until that one part gets fixed without causing any inconveniences unnecessarily since human beings are very impatient creatures who keep on complaining until their complaints get heard by someone responsible e.g if your web site crashes due to heavy traffic then they won’t accept excuses like it happened due to heavy
