I just wanted to see if anyone has used this program or knows anything about it. One of the places where I work recently purchased an electronic medical records program called Avenues that was developed in this environment. They have been having a lot of problems. I imagine it's the developers and not the enironment. Below is a description of the OpenInsight that is available on there website...

OpenInsight is a repository-based applications development environment that enables development teams to work collaboratively to design, develop, deploy and scale high-performance business solutions. OpenInsight's complete tool set (including a Form Designer, Editor/Debugger, UI Workspace, XML Workspace and more), advanced BASIC+ scripting language and powerful client/server development combine to deliver a complete environment for deploying and evolving network applications. OpenInsight is delivered with a flexible MultiValued, variable length, filing system, or has the ability to use SQL Server, Oracle, Lotus Notes, Universe/UniData, or any ODBC compliant data back-end. Delivered with both XML and Web-enabled tools, OpenInsight is a tremendously powerful development tool for Windows and Linux-based applications.

I've never used any of them: Having said that, I've heard good things about SourceGear Vault (http://www.sourcegear.com/index.html) and then there are some open source source control SW as well.  About the only advantage to OpenInsight from reading the list is the support for Lotus Notes. If you don't use it though why pay for it.

Looking at the pricing:
Sourcegear price:

Why would someone use these products instead SQL with C# or VB? Are they just easier to learn?

They aren't programming languages themselves such as C#, VB, Jave whatever. They are designed to hold your programming in the language to allow collaborative efforts among programming staffs.

You check out the source code for the import_data module and it locks it out from some other programmer trying to work on the same thing. The can also store the script for changes to the DB that will have to occur when you go to implement the application.

You would still program in your language of choice, it just makes sure the revisions are better coordinated.
