The new frontier

4D has proven time and again a reliable and enduring platform for standalone software.


Then, with the advent of client/server computing, 4D successfully tackled that arena, using the unique premise that your existing application and code could easily and seamlessly be adapted for the client/server world.

    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 recognizes the need for education, philanthropy, and – in general – doing good for the world around us.

    Other Voices

    There's a rich portion of the 4D developer and user community that goes well beyond officially provided resources. A thriving pool of web sites and user groups around the world ensure you get a view from an angle beyond the company line.

    4D in the Community

    Every year, 4D helps important non-profit entities bridge the gap between being in a financial pinch and being a more efficiently run organization dependent of less cash.

    In the view of some nonprofits, software is often considered an administrative expense – something many boards of directors don't want to pay for. 4D recognizes that challenge and that's why we have continued to donate software and other resources to worthy non-profits, with academic and non-profit/NGO programs in place around the world.
