Software on the web

12 April 2022

The software on the web is proposed with most of the management applications represented by slow and complicated software, often linked to a fixed location. They also require continuous updating costs. Precisely in conflict with what are the requirements necessary for the business, namely reactivity, flexibility and speed.

A first question arises: is the website a software system?

No, even if different software are used in the design of websites, the website cannot yet be defined as software due to its low functionality, interactivity and lack of offline availability compared to the typical characteristics of a software.

The software on the web are programs in which all the functions are accessible with a normal web-browser such as Explorer: therefore it has the first great advantage of not requiring any installation software on the computer of users who can, therefore, interact from any location and workstation. This feature has proved very useful in recent pandemic times.

Advantages of software on the web

Let’s see some of the many advantages offered by software on the web:

  1. The applications do not need to be downloaded, installed and configured: online authentication by the user (login and password) is sufficient.
  2. They can be used to support any internal company process, optimizing the insertion, updating, automatic data backup.
  3. They streamline the management of corporate data and information flows and can be used with various devices (computers, tablets and smartphones, as long as they are connected to the Internet) and even by multiple users, through the provision of multiple access data.
  4. Updates are quick and easy because they are carried out via the internet.
  5. When making a change, you do not need to update all workstations because this is automatically transferred to all computers.
  6. They have a high possibility of customization and expansion, since they are modular: you can add features and interfaces that can be adapted to the needs of your company.
  7. They can be used by different users at the same time.
  8. Your data will be safe and recoverable, thanks to automatic and continuous backup procedures.
  9. As far as privacy is concerned, when using web software the data is saved on secure, updated and protected servers.
  10. Last, but not least, is the cost savings of user licenses which are reflected in the reduction of business costs.

There are various types of software on the web that we can classify according to their function, according to the type of license with which they are distributed (which can be free or paid), according to the operating system with which it interacts.

In fact, regardless of the type of software chosen, each program is distributed according to certain requirements and characteristics of the software, so the interfaces are numerous.

Software on the web that helps businesses manage, analyze, and then optimize interactions with customers, such as e-commerce software, which is experiencing exponential growth in the global online market, is certainly of fundamental importance.

Software on the web is the concrete answer to technological speed, while at the same time guaranteeing maximum security and proposing itself as the ideal tool for business management.
