Web applications are any software that runs in a web browser and uses the internet or intranet (i.e. your own company’s servers) to send the information. They’re popular because there are many benefits to web based applications. For instance, there’s no complex “roll out” procedure since it only needs a compatible web browser. They require little or no disc space to operate. Plus, when it comes to upgrades, features are implemented on the server and automatically show up on your users’ devices. Since web applications operate within a web browser window, they’re cross-platform compatible. That means they’ll work on your operating system whether it’s Windows, Mac, Linux, etc. You can design something for your use or you can create an app that’s marketed to others.
Regardless of the end user, when it comes to custom web application development, the framework used can be important. Popular web application framework choices include CodeIgniter, CakePHP, Laravel, Yii, Symfony and Zend. While many of them share similar features (like Ajax, MCV, Cache and Validator), a web application developer will decide which framework is best for your particular purposes. Just know that Accunity can develop any custom web based application for you, like an ERP, CRM, Time Management app, Portfolio Management Systems, Custom Ecommerce or CMS solutions.
