A web application is a computer program that allows you to log-in to a web address to submit and retrieve data to/from a database over the internet. These programs are developed using web technologies and can be accessed by your preferred web browser (i.e. Google Chrome, Firefox, Safar, Internet Explorer etc). Some examples of web applications include webmail, word processors and spreadsheets, video and photo editing, shopping carts, file conversion, and file scanning. Some popular applications are Yahoo, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Slides, etc.
The benefits for businesses using web applications are many. One being the ease of maintenance, instead of updating multiple user’s desktops you only need to update the software directly on a server. Applications are accessible by users regardless of the type of operating system they use such as Windows, Mac, etc..
