I completely agree with you... Smile | :)

I have been saying for many years that the ASP.NET WebForms model was the zenith of web development efficiency and ease-of-use.

True, it had its drawbacks but nothing to the extent that the quagmire of unreliable technologies that have grown up around the ASP.NET MVC paradigm have fostered on professional developers.

However, so many newer developers drank the Kool-Aid thinking that the new technologies and techniques were the way to go, though there was very little evidence to demonstrate the efficiencies of these new paradigms.

So what we have today is truly a complete mess in web development.

Had developers refused to make the move to MVC as Microsoft was encouraging them to do, Microsoft would have been forced to refine ASP.NET WebForms, which had been already doing up to a point.

To date, I have not read a single document explaining why any business organization should allow its IT group to move from WebForms to ASP.NET MVC and I have researched this area quite extensively.

So far, all I have found are reasons for developers to do so because it will make them feel more like high end technical personnel as a result of the substantial amount of complexity that has been added as a result of these newer technologies.

However, in terms of actually getting the job done, there has been no such document that has been able to show why MVC is better than WebForms beyond public relations drivel!
