"A very solid platform to build on"

What do you like best?

Catalyst's biggest advantage is the same as Perl's: stability. Catalyst is a mature package, with an ecosystem of hundreds of equally mature modules that can cut down development time substantially. These packages allowed us to quickly integrate new database types, and to interface with modern APIs without writing thousands of lines of code.

When an error occurs while working with Cataylst, the problem is most probably with our own code, rather than the platform.

What do you dislike?

Age is what makes Catalyst so mature and stable, but it is also what makes it hard to find up to date resources and new hires able to write in it. With very few new people being added to the ranks of Perl developers, the scarcity of coders will become a larger issue with time. Eventually the cost of hiring a team will be prohibitively expensive, and lead to us migrating to a newer platform to save on costs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider the cost of hiring experienced developers capable of writing Perl, or the costs of training for new team members.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Stability is the number one problem Cataylst solves; other than that, most other MVC frameworks have similar capabilities.

"Catalyst was a step forward in the ABA industry "

What do you like best?

I really enjoyed how we were visually able to see how far away we, as therapists, were from obtaining a sufficient amount of data for the current session

What do you dislike?

The interface was a little clunky and not very appealing. It was also very difficult to get technical support in a timely manner. Some issues that needed to be addressed right away were not dealt with until maybe a week after submitting a request

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Similar to CentralReach, catalyst has helped greatly with data acquisition. It helps me manage my time better

What Other Web Frameworks solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!
