We work with a wide variety of web application technologies for front-end, back-end and database development :
? Back end: PHP, ASP.NET, Java,
? Databases: MS SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle
With cost-efficiency and high performance in mind, we also choose back-end technologies that suit best business requirements. A small community portal will work well with a PHP back end, while for a complex solution for hundreds of thousands of users (e.g. corporate applications or booking systems) we recommend Java or ASP.NET development.
Web applications provide business and customers with a huge range of benefits compared to non-Web based applications:
- By opting to launch your project as a Web application (as opposed to a desktop application), you immediately make it accessible to a mass audience - an audience that is simply defined as people with Internet access and a modern Internet browser.
- Web applications are much easier to update than their desktop counterparts. To update a Web application, the amendments only need to be made to one place: the server on which the Web application runs. To update a Desktop application, however, is a much more complicated task: patches need to be developed, tested and finally distributed to each and every one of the end users of the application.
- Relative to conventional websites, a Web application is more likely to score better on the basis of receiving return visitors. The logic is simple: a Web application is more interactive than a brochure site, so users are more likely to return to use it a second time and to check for updates.
If it's possible to have your service or product run as a Web application rather than a desktop application, it makes sense to do so: the Web makes it cheaper and faster to reach a mass audience than the traditional method of developing, testing, packaging and distributing software to be installed on an individual user’s computer.
