Web-based Applications

[via Sadagopan] FastCompany writes: “Web-based applications free companies from constraints on growth.”

You may have heard of these new style applications described as ASPs (Application Service Providers), On-demand applications, or Hosted software. All those terms mean the same thing: Your application vendor hosts and maintains the software and the hardware to run it so you don’t have to.

The types of applications that are available using this approach run the gamut from pure business applications to group calendars, HR and workflow applications, and specialized applications for different industries. Some applications that use substantial resources on the PC, such as 3D modeling programs, are the laggards — but with faster networking technology even those types of programs may succumb to this trend.
