What are web applications?
What are web applications and do I need one?
Simply put, a web application is a program that run on the internet similar to the way a computer program runs on your computer. A web application allows you to treat the internet as part of your office network. You should consider a web application if
- You need to coordinate information with other businesses and people share data
- You need to have a program that can be accessed from anywhere by anyone you choose.
Web applications - easy collaboration
That is what web applications are all about. It is just like a program that runs on your PC except that it runs on a webserver. It means that you can collaborate with other businesses or people - even people from different businesses. Information can be distributed, goals can be met and your objective achieved.
Virus-proof your business
Many well known companies are starting to make use of web applications. The software is easily kept up to date and is very difficult to infect with viruses.
