Reasons Why OS-Independent Client-Server Systems Work Well For Business

This is a guest post by Sachin about the reasons Why OS-Independent Client-Server Systems Work Well For Business. Client-server systems are on the increase. With the growing reliance on a number of devices, and more people using an operating system other than Windows, we have seen an increase in the number of business applications, including small business accounting software, for example, running as web-based applications. Managed servers, including those smaller virtual servers sold cheaply online, come with limited support, such as, extremely important features like offsite backup service, and disaster recovery storage. Web-based applications are applications that are written in the code of the Internet. There are a number of advantages of having an application that works in any browser. Here is a look at client-server systems based on the language of the Internet.


  • Client-Server Systems. Client-server systems are everywhere. We are using them without realising. Online banking and Facebook are excellent examples of online applications based on a client-server model that many of us use. The core information is stored on a server, and we use our browser to access and manipulate the data stored. Using HTML5 has some serious benefits. We do not need to choose a server setup that is operating system specific to run these applications.
  • Composite Solutions. These days, all software, and many business applications, such as, accounting software, are being produced in HTML5. This means the applications work in your browser. You see the application as website, but actually it can be a business software application that includes your taxation, customer access, job costing, stock management. These days these types of applications have become very advanced. They can include many other areas of our business, including job costing, taxation management, billing, stock management, communicationsand more.
  • Multi-device. These days many people are using multiple devices. They are using smart phones, tablets, laptops and personal computers. Many of these devices run on different operating systems. When we use browser-based, web-based applications any device can access them. It doesn’t matter if you are using Apple’s iOS, OSX, a Nokia phone, or a Windows-based system, you can access the website, just like we do with Facebook.
  • No Software download to access. Although you may need an add-on for your browser, there is really no software download when you use this type of software. This means it is easier for your people and your customers to access and use. We can also manage our access with user name and passwords at the point of access, again just like Facebook does with its users.
  • More Developers. The HTML5 language is very popular, and there are many people makingapplications and understand this language. This means we have a larger pool of developers who can develop these applications.
  • People are acclimatised. With an increase in user tools such as online banking and applications like Facebook, the ordinary personal computer user has become very used to the idea of using an online application.



In addition of all of the benefits above, we have even more reason why we will see the popularity of web-based applications will increase. The new Windows 8 OS will allow HTML5-based applications run natively on the operating system. This will mean we can get more power out of our personal computer instead of being limited by our browser’s access. Considering the majority of business and personal users are running the Windows system, we can expect HTML5 based applications soon to become the norm. The more traditional applications are going to be seriously challenged.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
