    7) Question of the Month about Software Training:

    Each month Jeff Love will answer a current or important question that we have received about computer and software training.


    November 2006 Question of the Month: 

    As web-based applications become more popular and smart devices become mainstream and do things that computers can do, will traditional desktop software begin to fade away, and possibly be replaced by Internet-based computing and/or smart device computing?

    Answer:
    As web-based applications become more popular, we are also seeing a great increase in the number of powerful devices being used today, including blackberrys, smart cell phones, game boxes, personal music players, digital cameras, etc. 

    All smart devices have specialized software and an operating system, so as these are integrated in the future, they will need to support users with sharing, synchronizing information, and expanding out to other users and information repositories. One the the big challenges will be to figure out how to connect all of the devices used by a single person to provide individual access to, and control of, his or her information wherever it resides. There will probably be dual systems bringing together a centralized and a decentralized model.

    In regards to desktop and web applications, I predict an eventual blend of the two that will be come together and create desktop applications that will able to go anywhere and use any data. On the web, a given remote system will probably not be a centralized server, but instead a global assortment of systems owned by dozens of different companies. This shifting of control to many varied types of online systems and servers will cause social and legal issues that will be challenging to solve.


    I hope this help you.
