As organizations roll out Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), they will turn to Rich Internet and Web Applications (RWA) for the final link: the human-machine interface. This is according to a report just published byEurope's leading IT research and advisory organization, Butler Group. The report 'Rich Web Applications: The Business Benefits of Web-enabled Applications Development,' says RWAs offer the reach of the Internet and the convenience of the Web browser for deployment, plus rich behavior similar to desktop applications.

"Today, 'always on' pervasive broadband is making access to the Internet easy enough for it no longer to be considered 'technology' but a part of the fabric of modern living, like telephone and television," says Michael Azoff, Senior Analyst with Butler Group and co-author of the report. "The key advantages of using the Internet can be summed up as 'always on and everywhere', reachable from mobile devices, laptops, to desktop machines."
