The usual way to run business applications on computers was to install the app on the system, or use supportive machines, or use client-based servers to access the apps. In either case, the users’ system ought to have particular software installed to run business applications. This method of running apps is classic, but back, with a techie title being adopted rapidly.
Almost all business applications can be accessed via an internet browser; so, the user doesn’t require additional equipment, with a browser installed to run the apps. It’s been quite some time that apps compatible with browsers are being used, but with the advancement in technology throughout a decade, developers have learned to create applications with more of a desktop look and feel.
At present, cloud computing technology needs data to be worked with and saved within the cloud. But with the emergence of html 5, users will be able to create and save data on a local machine. This way, the user won’t have to worry about losing any data; even if the browser window is closed, by mistake.
If cloud computing is employed publicly, the entire control of the business apps is in the hands of the producer. The user is not concerned with data updating issues or system maintenance. This has to be taken care of by the user who can shift data from one system to another, using specific methods.
For private cloud computing, the business applications are installed on a separate server, which is controlled by the user, but is not mandatory.
