Doing Good on a Budget

Teaching future generations. Helping the less fortunate. Making an impact on the world. These are the most noble of aspirations. They’re also the least lucrative.

But just like any enterprise, academic institutions and not-for-profit organizations need solutions to help drive them toward their goals.  4D recognises the need for education, philanthropy, and – in general – doing good for the world around us.  

 

4D Pop Collection

4D Pop is a series of productivity components grouped into a toolbar that integrates perfectly with the 4D v11 SQL development environment. Filled with clever tools and immediately useful for developers, 4D Pop has many advantages.

NEW! 4D Pop Collection is included in the installer for 4D v12. If you are a 4D v12 user, you need not download 4D Pop.

 

Develop In-House Solutions for Your Company

More often than not, there's no off-the-shelf software solution that meets your company's or department's specific needs. You know this, because it's your job to develop custom solutions tailored to the business.

With the increasingly fast pace of enterprise today, you’re not left with much time to experiment with different solutions, nor tinker with them to get them to work with systems you already have in place.

 

This is where 4D comes in.

  

Connectivity plug-ins

Connectivity tools allow your database to grow and migrate as needs change by allowing you to connect to outside technologies.

4D Connectivity Plug-ins allow 4D developers unparalleled extensibility of their 4D applications through a variety of enterprising connectivity technologies. Each of the products listed below is available separately.

 

See also the 4D Open Suite and JDBC Driver pages that describe more connectivity options for 4D Server applications.
