Web Applications for Client-Server browser access.
No need to install software on any computers.
The convenience of using a web browser to run your application
With the ever growing power of web programming languages and the advent of the modern web browser the power and capability of web applications now rivals the once hallowed ground of desktop installed software.
The benefits of getting your data out of spreadsheets like Excel or Access and into a user friendly web application are numerous, to say the least you can filter data much faster and more efficiently.
A basic website is just a simple web application, its function is to deliver static content.
Not all web applications will use a custom built database, they may just apply a programmatic decision to some user input. Websites can be referred to as a web application when its purpose on the whole is to perform a functional response to user interaction. For example gmail is a web application.
There is also the added bonus of being able to access your data from a tablet or smart phone, depending on your mobility requirements. Mobile friendly responsiveness is not always suitable though and needs to be factored into the project and tested during development.
Web applications for every day business data and periodic reporting.
Web Application vs Installing desktop software
Applications can work on common smart phones, tablets, Android, iPhone, iPad browsers. We will discuss with you what cross-browser goals need to be met at a minimum, unless your application has to work on old browsers then it is best to target the web application to current browsers so as to reduce costs.
A web application differs to a 'website' in the sense that it requires more user interaction and processing of the user input to determine output, in other words it is a program.
Web applications are online software
A web application is just a form of software that runs from the server through the web browser. Its advantages are portability and ease of access as well as the reduced maintenance issues as it can be centrally managed.
Maintenance of code and ease of code distribution is without doubt much easier for a web application as opposed to desktop installed software like Java or C++.
Using a standards compliant approach to coding and programming, so code is consistently implemented; for those wanting to know, we endorse the PHP Laravel framework.
