Do you need a software solution that gets installed directly onto your clients or employees computers? Or a web-based solution that you want to use only within your company or home intranet? Then you’re looking for either a desktop application or an intranet application.
Desktop applications run directly on your own computer. They can still connect to other systems or databases that aren’t located on your computer and they can provide a richer user experience by taking advantage of the hardware and special functionality of your computer. Since they don’t have to connect back to a web server every time you need more data, you don’t need to worry about how fast your internet connection is. One disadvantage is that desktop applications don’t follow a standard for the look-and-feel like a web-based application and can therefore require a longer learning curve. So what should you do if you want a shorter learning curve?
Intranet applications are essentially web applications that are not exposed on the internet. Since most people today are familiar with websites and web-interfaces, intranet applications can provide solutions that are easier to learn. They are hosted from your own internal web server which can be kept off of the broader internet.
