Can’t a Web App function the same way as a Cloud App? In some ways, yes. In other ways, no. Here’s how they differ:
Unlike web apps, which are stored remotely on a server and accessed via an internet browser, cloud based web application development gives users the option to work offline without internet access. This is because, as their name suggests, they’re stored in the cloud. This allows for greater flexibility when it comes to making updates, as you can do them no matter if you’re in a plane, train, or automobile with or without access to Wi-Fi.
Cloud apps give you the ability to reduce your overhead by cutting out in-house infrastructures that were previously needed to maintain constant updates. Access is much easier than with desktop or web applications, so there isn’t a need to maintain an in-house staff of IT experts solely dedicated to your app.
Cloud based web application development encourages collaboration between members of your team. It allows them to work more closely together, work more efficiently, and benefits not only your business – but your customers in a variety of ways.
