IntraWeb - Management Overview
IntraWeb has many unique technical features that will make your developers drool - but how can IntraWeb benefit your company in non technical terms?
Writing a web application with IntraWeb is nearly identical to writing a standard Windows application. Developers need no additional training and can use IntraWeb immediately. Developers can reuse existing code without the need to rewrite it to conform to how HTTP and HTML works. IntraWeb abstracts the developer from such details.
Evaluate the average application specification for time required to develop as a normal Windows application, and as a web application. Typically the time and thus cost to develop the same application as a web application will be up to ten times as much. Using IntraWeb to build the same application takes typically only 15% more than the standard Windows application. With average developer costs of $50 per hour, the ROI on IntraWeb is less than two days.
RIA without plugins
IntraWeb includes advanced controls that are ready to use and support many of the same features as standard Windows controls including screen resize support, rich controls, client side interaction, and partial repaints of a screen. Using partial updates the user sees no screen flicker, and bandwidth is reduced to as little as a few hundred bytes per refresh, as opposed to hundreds of kilobytes. This provides for a very fast, responsive application to the end user, even on slow connections.
With IntraWeb you no longer have to deliver dumb downed versions of your applications on the web, but can deliver rich, fully interactive, responsive, and fast applications interfaces. Because your web applications now act like a normal Windows application, the retraining costs for users is reduced and support costs are less.
Because of drastically reduced costs, applications previously deemed too costly or not possible can be developed or ported to the web. Applications that have been targeted for web deployment but postponed or deemed not possible become possible with IntraWeb.
Device and Browser IndependentIntraWeb supports all major browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Netscape, Opera, Firefox, and Safari. IntraWeb even supports PDA's and mobile phones.
Zero Deployment Costs
Web applications require zero installations or configurations. Your installation costs become zero. Applications can be easily upgraded without the need to redeploy to all users. Because there is no installation on client machines, installation technical support also becomes zero.
IntraWeb is scalable and can handle as many users as your hardware allows. Whether you have 10, 100, or 100,000 users IntraWeb can handle the load.
By deploying your application to the web, whether it be to employees, customers, or vendors your company gains a huge competitive advantage.
