The Web is one of the most important technologies in the world, and that trend is only getting stronger in 2021. A website is a basic necessity for any organisation or business, and the Web can now be used to power software applications delivering massive practical value for all sorts of systems and processes.

Benefits of the Web as a platform
The Web has evolved into the world’s first truly cross-device software ecosystem. Modern web applications can be run on a wider variety of devices due to the ubiquity of Web browsers and embedded Web technology.
A well-designed Web application allows users to work with it from desktops, laptops, phones, tablets and other devices. This diversity is hard for other platforms to compete with, and can make Web applications highly valuable to organisations that invest in them.
When your customers and staff can interact with your application on any device in a way that suits them, a lot of value and opportunity is opened up to your business.
Discoverability & SEO
The Web has been an open-access platform from its earliest days, and that means that Web content and applications are usually much easier for users and customers to discover through search, social media and link sharing.
This discoverability can be further enhanced by applying SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) to make sure that your website or application is displayed in search engine results to potential users and customers.
(And yes, “discoverability” is a word!)
Instant Apps & Flexibility
Because the Web is so open and so fast (if done right!), applications and websites can be instantly accessible to your users and customers. This means that people can start using your website immediately on almost any device, without needing to download or install anything. It’s also easy to direct people to your Web application by simply sharing the address with them.
Another benefit of the ease-of-use of the Web is that your Web application can remain flexible even when you have many users. Web development can continue on your software, which can then be deployed and made available to your users straight away, without them needing to download or install anything. Users simply continue to visit your website as usual, and can benefit from the latest version.
Building your Web application on this foundation is a good basis for a successful software development project.
Progressive Web Applications (PWAs)
Web technology is able to compete with native iOS and Android apps in the form of Progressive Web Applications (PWAs). These are Web apps that behave like native apps on the user’s device, but without the need to download, install or manage updates. This means you can achieve a “best of both worlds” situation where you benefit from the instant access and flexibility of Web development, but can also achieve the user experience of an app on the user’s device.
