  6. 6. Syntive clients see the best ROI in these situations: <ul><ul><li>Desire to update desktop software, implement new software, or acquire new software. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Desire to make business systems and processes available from mobile locations/devices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Desire to integrate legacy software or data into an updated system or process </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  All three of these desires can be integrated into one web- </li></ul><ul><li>  based application custom designed for your business. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Existing software deployment is costly: <ul><ul><li>Ten minutes per desktop, per change *  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Encourages less frequent, milestone based deployment of many unrelated features. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can lead to feature fear, which can paralyze development </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Increases risk of failure following deployment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>User must be offline during update process </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All users must be offline during scheduled server updates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Leads to many different versions of the app in the field </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Most users are not using the same version </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Makes debugging difficult </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8.

  9. 9. Web Deployment Is Best: <ul><ul><li>Web deployment is absolutely the best option! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Encourages more frequent and smaller deployments </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduces risk of failure following deployment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Requires no software installation for new users </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Works in any modern web browser </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Deployment does not interrupt users </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Users see updates, enhancements, new features immediately </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Thin-client browser container (Google Chrome) is fast and behaves similarly to existing desktop application. </li></ul></ul></ul>
