Applications that run within a web browser are referred to as web applications versus applications that run locally from a computer. Web applications have become popular for many reasons including:
Convenience Improves Workforce Mobility
Web applications can be accessed at any time as long as a user has Internet access. This makes workers more productive while on the move or creates opportunities to find new ways to enable workers in the field to do their work better.
Web applications require less IT support. The days of installing and maintaining software on every corporate computer in an office are gone; updates are made to applications running a server; and these updates are experienced by everyone when changes are released.
Compatibility Equals Speed
Developing and maintaining web applications functioning in the common web browsers is simpler than trying to do the same across multiple operating systems and device types.
Staff Are Productive More Quickly
Workers are familiar with browsing the internet. By creating applications that follow best practices for graphical interfaces in browsers training time is reduced to learn new systems. Web applications do have drawbacks with the primary issue being the inability to use applications when not connected to the internet.
