Boost Business Apps with LightSwitch

The primary reason you might want to use WCF RIA Services with Visual Studio LightSwitch/Cloud Business Apps (SharePoint) is to:

  • Combine more than one entity into a single entity.
  • Eliminate unnecessary columns in an entity to improve performance (otherwise large amounts of data, such as pictures, will be transmitted even when they're not shown).
  • Implement calculated fields that let you search and sort resulting values.

Go to the LightSwitch Help Web site for more information.
