Advantages of Web Applications

Market Prices : Advantages of Web ApplicationsWeb applications run through a web browser like Internet Explorer. The program sits on a web server, rather than on the PC, or local server for traditional applications.

On a basic website pages are static. Web application pages interact with users requesting and responding to users. The most common example is online shopping application.

Web applications typically use a database to store permanent information such as product descriptions and costs, and customer orders.

Web Applications deliver many business benefits compared to office based solutions.

Software as a Service - SaaS

With SaaS, customers pay to use software via the web as a service on demand, by paying a subscription rather than outright purchase. Software is usually licensed by number of users and/or levels of features.

The SaaS model allows developers and vendors to keep control the hosting and operation of the software. Customers do not have to worry about hardware/software compatibility and support to run an application. Eliminating a major overhead in large corporate environments.

Disadvantages of Web Applications

- Slower, as run over the internet

- Internet not always 100% available

- Interfaces often not as sophisticated

- Can take longer to develop as they are more complex

- Have to support different browsers, and different versions

- Security risks
