RIA giants Cynergy Systems have announced they are creating a practice dedicated to RIA development using Silverlight.

I think this is a very sound move for Cynergy and one of the few I’ve seen who have managed disassociate themselves from an emotional tie to Adobe technologies and embrace alternatives from such a serious contender as Microsoft. Note this is not them saying “no more Adobe”, this is them saying they are experts in the RIA space and offer choice to their customers to have the most approriate solution using the most appropriate technology.

There will be big budgets being thrown around by big companies who get caught up in the excitement generated by Microsoft and by Mix07 and Cynergy are showing they will be there to ride that wave. Fair play to them, I’m a fan of Cynergy’s work and look forward to seeing what they come up with on the Silverlight front.
