It’s clear that today there is a need to move towards platform-independent software solutions. Clients now have higher expectations for applications than ever before. They expect simple, intuitive, and powerful applications that solve the problem at hand in a clean and elegant way. Adobe has discontinued support for flash on mobile devices, creating a need for a new web technology to take its place: HTML5.

In a stark contrast with the past, today’s applications need to be built mobile-first. With phones and tablets with fast processors and large displays, it’s possible to do more with a mobile than ever. This includes things such as inventory management, data entry, and more.

There are many significant advantages to using HTML5:

1. Mobile-Ready – Applications are built with responsiveness in mind – meaning the app can change it’s view easily based on what device the client is using. Clients will love that they have one product that works amazingly well across desktops, tablets and mobile phones.

2. Powerful – By utilizing multiple web technologies such as CSS and Javascript, it’s possible to create desktop-class applications using web technologies that look and behave like they are running natively.

3. Elegant – HTML5 makes animations and the designing the user interface easier than ever.

With these advantages in mind, it is clear that HTML5 is the way to go for developing new applications for clients. Because the software is web-based, clients can access the software on any device with a web browser, and because our framework is designed with responsiveness in mind, it looks great on desktops, phones, and tablets.

More than that, HTML5 enables us to build robust, desktop-class applications in the cloud without requiring additional plugins. By utilizing the framework our team has been developing over the past year, we are able to create business applications faster than ever. The applications look beautiful, are feature-rich, contain all relevant business logic, and have all the great benefits HTML5 provides.

Throughout the development of our new framework over the past year, we learned a great deal about best practices, and the possibilities with software currently available. We plan to share our experiences on our blog at
