5 Business Advantages of Web Applications over Desktop Applications

As a technology company we do see clients wanting to enhance their existing client-server based desktop systems or create web applications. Although the technology is sizzling with web based applications and services, some of the organisations still run client server based applications. There could be several reasons for this, for example these applications might be stable in the client environment for a long time, or the employees might be already used to it or the cost of creating new application would be considerable. While some of the reasons could be complex, its also imperative to weigh and see what web based applications can offer over Desktop applications.

A web-based application is any application that uses a website as the interface (the‘front-end’). Users access the application from any computer connected to the Internet / Intranet using a standard browser, instead of using an application that has been installed on their local computer.
Here are our list of reasons as to why one should consider moving to web based applications.

1. No client installation
Users need only a browser to use a web-based application, and this minimises installation issues.

2. Cross platform
The application can be easily ported to virtually any platform with a web browser and accessible from range of devices.

3.Accessible anywhere

The application can be easily hosted in the Internet and with right security measures your data is available and accessible everywhere.

4.Updates and bug fixes are easier.

Remember the time someone use to come to your desktop to fix issues? With web based applications updates happens at the server and hence your help desk efforts can be minimised drastically.

5.More users
Here is my favourite of all reasons, once the web page is loaded interface is no longer connected to the database. It only connects during the transaction, thus minimising the load and expanding the user base.

Moreover web based applications are faster to develop( with technologies like Javascript, HTML5,AngularJS,KnockoutJS) easier to maintain and adheres to standards unlike desktop applications.If you have questions about web page applications, please don't hesitate to contact us.
