Depending on what your users will want to do, it may not be a web application that you need.
Here are a few alternatives, and some guidance on when to go with them:
There’s no point developing a web application when there’s an off-the-shelf solution that meets your needs. If you want to solve a common business problem, the odds are there’s an off-the-shelf solution out there for you.
Think of it as view vs. do. If your users will mainly view things, build a website. If they’ll do things, develop a web application.
Mobile apps are installed on the device, giving them access to inbuilt features like cameras and location. Web applications run in the device’s web browser. Progressive web applications blur this distinction, because they can also use inbuilt mobile features.
Mobile apps tend to run faster and offer more features. Web applications are quicker to develop and don’t need app store approval to launch. Is your priority speed of delivery or speed of performance?
Desktop applications are installed on the user’s machine, rather than running in their web browser. More powerful web browsers mean that many user and business requirements can be met with a web application these days
Our developers build, test and release software as self-contained DevOps teams, using Test Driven Development and Continuous Integration. All our developers do both front-end and back-end development. This means there is no time-consuming handover between teams. As a result, we release reliable, tested, working software early and often throughout the duration of a project.
