Client Server Applications
The client/server model has become the most prevalent form of applications developed by Agility. Most business applications being written today use the client/server model. In practice, client-server applications utilize a front-end, or client, computing component (for instance an office workstation) in addition to back-end, or server computing component (for instance a database server in a network room).
This Client-Server Application model, also referred to as 3-tier or n-tier applications, offer a number of advantages such as:
- Enhanced Network Performance.
- Significant Speed Enhancements: applications run significantly faster since the processing workload is shared by both the client and the server.
- Ease of Management and Scalability (or growth) due to separate logical components.
- Enhanced availibility to server-side components such as database.
Agility possesses the skills to properly define an appropriate type of application for a specific need. In the case of client-server architectures specifically, Agility has the resources to install and manage the infrastructure necessary for a given application development product as well as the ability to write and deploy the appropriate custom application.
