Web Applications (rail

Web applications are out there in the market since the emergence of cloud services. With booming high-speed data communication channels, more players are jumping in to cloud business with AWS as the market leader which roughly supports 40% of the internet today. Low-cost cloud services, cross-compatibility of web apps and data analytics are stagnantly increasing the adoption of web apps.

List of Top 10 Reasons Why Businesses Are Migrating to Web Applications

​​1. Cheaper to build, maintain and scale-up

A rapid pace in Web application development can be achieved with parallel development as these applications are divided into two parts i.e. frontend that runs on users’ system and backend that runs on the server where most of the functionality resides. Therefore, backend and frontend developers can work simultaneously). Web applications are also cheaper because of the following reasons:

  • Cross-platform Compatibility

Web applications run on web browsers and every operating system provides good support to web browsers. So, you only need to make the web application responsive to make it cross-platform compatible. Whereas native applications are platform-dependent and it is extremely expensive to separately develop applications for all the operating systems, platforms and devices.

  • Easy to Scale-up and fix bugs

Since web application runs on web servers and is rendered from there to end user’s device it is easy to release new features. Once new features are developed, they are integrated with the present application in a testing environment thereafter the procedure of bug fixing runs until web application starts working flawlessly. Finally, the new version of web application (war file of the web app) is released on the production server which then stars rendering new version on end user’s device. In case of a similar procedure is followed therefore web applications provide a better experience to users.

2. Offers almost zero downtime

Now a day’s web applications run on shared hosting services where subscribers have to pay according to their usage, which is maintained by hosting service providers. It is almost impossible that your service provider will run out of hardware resources to support the random surges in a number of users. There’s also AWS S3 service which deploys older version (older war file) of web applications if the newly deployed version fails on servers. All the above-listed facts ensure that end-users experience almost zero downtime.

3. Low expenses on hardware

Since web applications run on web servers and UI is rendered on a web browser on the user’s end, therefore, the end-user doesn’t require an expensive device to the web application. He/she just need a device that could smoothly support a powerful device hence web applications can reach out to a larger customer base.
