Web Applications Explained
The Internet is the way of the future and over the last decade, any business should be online with a strong web presence if they want to have a future. It is the only effective way to exchange information, communicate, transact, and build brand presence. Data from website visitors must be processed, stored, captured, and transmitted. This is where web applications are one of the most important aspects of web sites and its functionality. A web application is a widget in the form of content management systems, shopping carts, login forms, contact forms, enquiry forms, etc.
A widget is indeed an incredibly ubiquitous phenomenon that is highly complex and technical in nature, but still grossly misunderstood and widely unknown. Comparing modern websites to the early web pages with its static graphics and tests, it is an opposite of personalized dynamic content according to website and business owner’s individual settings, tastes and preferences. A modern website allows transmission, storage, processing of any sensitive data including personal details, social security information, credit card information, etc. Shaping websites to the way you want it and need it is a common example of what a web application does.
