Benefits of Browser based Applications.

Browser based applications can be accessed either over the internet or an intranet and offer many advantages over the traditional client/server architechure.

The primary difference between the two is that browser based applications do not require a specific client side application to be developed and maintained. Instead they are accessed via a modern graphical web browser which gives you platform independence.

An ever increasing number of companies are recognizing the advantages of browser applications.

Main Advantages of Browser Applications

  • Strict version control - Users accessing the server always use the latest version of the application.
  • Applications easily distributed - no client code just URLs.
  • Platform independence - Applications are accessible by users running a modern graphical browser on any operating system from Windows, Linux, OS/2, Mac OS and eComStation.
  • Standards based - Browser code (HTML, XML, CSS, and JavaScript) is governed by standards organizations. This helps ensure code compatibility with current and future browsers.
  • Accessibility - Users can access applications over a standard Internet connection. This enables telecommuting and development amongst team members in different locations.
  • System monitoring and Managed Backups if hosted by
  • Short development life cycle and quick deployment.
  • Suitable for all size organisations.
  • Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). If you buy or develop software you need to weigh-up all the costs of support, hardware requirements, maintenance, upgrades and so on. Browser based applications can offer a significantly lower TCO to the traditional client/server model.
