Client/Server Applications have always played a key role in operation of
businesses. The ability to input, process, store, and access data anytime,
anywhere and via any device is powering eBusinesses of today.
Ubiquitous and fast access to your services
Your employees, customers, and suppliers need data access that is secure,
fast and reliable. As a business, you need secure systems that are robust,
easy to maintain, and scalable.
Client/Server based applications are mostly utilized in the following areas:
- Human resource management
- Inventory and assets management
- Procurement and ordering
- Sales and marketing
- Workflow and messaging
Agnicient develops Client/Server Application and robust enterprise
applications with user-friendly interfaces. Depending on your business
requirements, we can also help in developing web-enabled applications and
Client/Server Applications present the following main benefits:
Rich graphical user interface
One of the most attractive features of Client/Server Applications is the
ease and speed with which a user can adapt to using a client designed for
his or her machine. The Windows client looks and behaves like any other
Instant response to user input
Unlike Web applications, Client/Server Applications do not require full
screen refreshes for entering and retrieving data. Instead they allow users
to select options, check boxes and input data in real time.
Programmers can create those applications faster and cheaper using multiple
window widgets such as trees, menus, and tabs, all of which have poor
support under HTML.
Client/Server Applications also eliminate costly Web cross-platform
compatibility issues. For instance, Mozilla-based applications are
cross-platform, meaning programs work the same on Windows as they do on
Linux or the Mac OS.
Traditional client-server development environments can rely on persistent
connections between clients and servers. Web communications using HTTP are
intermittent, meaning that they are constantly being established, torn down
and reestablished as the browser requests pages and objects over the
network. This lack of connection state is a major security limitation with
HTTP. On the other hand, most modern Client/Server Applications use
encrypted passwords and strict access control binding.
Unlike Web applications, Client/Server Applications can be compliant with
Section 508 and other accessibility guidelines as they allow for direct
manipulation of data, such as dragging and dropping elements, and client
side-processing and storing data locally.
