1. Cost effective development
With web-based applications, users access the system via a uniform environment—the web browser.
Unlike traditional applications, web systems are accessible anytime, anywhere. It also opens up exciting, modern possibilities such as global teams, work from home and real-time collaboration.
3. Easily customizable
The user interface of web-based applications is easier to access for a range of devices. It can also be customized for use on any device connected to the internet including the likes of PDAs, mobile phones and tablets.
4. Improved interoperability
It is possible to achieve a far greater level of interoperability between web applications than it is with isolated systems.
5. Easier installation and maintenance
With the web-based approach installation and maintenance becomes less complicated too. Once a new version or upgrade is installed on the host server all users can access it straight away and there is no need to upgrade the PC of each & every potential use
6. Adaptable to increased workload
Increasing processor capacity also becomes a far simpler operation with web-based applications. If an application requires more power to perform tasks only the server hardware needs to be upgraded. The capacity of web-based software can be increased by “clustering” or running the software on several servers simultaneously. As workload increases, new servers can be added to the system easily.
7. Increased Security
Web-based applications are typically deployed on dedicated servers, which are monitored and maintained by experienced server administrators.
This means that security is tighter, and any potential breaches should be noticed far more quickly.
