Rich Internet Applications (RIA)
The arrival of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) introduces a new approach to business applications. Historically
the software was required to be installed on a target machine. Then WEB applications shifted the paradigm to
centrally managed collection of WEB pages providing business functions with zero installation efforts. RIA today
combines best parts of both worlds - it provides rich user experience of a locally installed software while
easily distributed over the web with zero installation efforts.
We think RIA approach has a huge potential in business applications, not yet fully realized.
Computing power of personal computers grew substantially while network speed, reliability and accessibility
are becoming better and better. At the same time user demands for and expectations of business applications
increase not only in quality, but often in kind.
Having to install the software from disks, maintaining and updating it later on, dealing with compatibility issues
on the target machine are more and more becoming history, so is the constant reloading of countless document-like
web pages in traditional WEB applications. With RIA users get the native feeling of the application without having
to install anything. Response time is near-immediate and the richness of the user experience is limited by only
your imagination. To read more about RIA please
At Dynamix we have developed several frameworks and components for building RIA, as well as many
applications based on them for our clients. We've seen our clients gradually realized the potential of RIA.
They could design and shape user experience of the application with flexibility simply unknown in the
traditional web application world. You can see a real example of
Rich Internet Applicaiton
developed by us for one of the clients based on OpenLaszlo / Flash technology.
The concept of RIA is fairly new. The technologies and implementations are rapidly changing.
We do our best to stay ahead in RIA development for our clients following the latest trends in the
industry. At present, we rely on the following technologies for RIA development:
- Microsoft Silverlight
- Adobe Flash / Flex
- Open Laszlo
