  • Hi,


    This question cannot be answered in a Yes or No. There are number of factors that determine the type of solution. Since you haven's listed many, here is my take on the same :


    1. If it is an intranet application (going to be used only by your organization), go in for a Windows app. You will get a rich GUI model and performance advantages

    2. If the application is to be used by people outside your organization, go in for a Web application. However remember that you will have to deal with browser compatibility, security and requirements such as performance, availability and so on.


    Just keep in mind the audience you are targetting and the possibility of the software users growing in future. A lot of companies have been adopting a service based model too, which gives them flexibility.


    Here's a good discussion on the topic
