    and be launchable easier Visual appeal Buttons images tabs they all look nice and respond quickly Development of rich interfaces is easier For all I love the Web dealing with browser incompatibilities and CSS rendering issues is not fun All that is good and true but don t desktop apps on the Mac Linux and Windows also access the hardware fully Don t some of them have nice UIs What s the catalyst for all this interest The answer in my opinion is convenience KISS Yep what users of apt get have known for years relatively easy installation of native applications via the Internet is very desirable I think all of us might ve moved to webapps for email news etc because the administration and acquiring of desktop apps was just inconvenient another good point would be feature creep but that s another post altogether Consider Windows and buying downloading software later installing configuring it ain t pretty It s more convenient just to access a webpage no dealing with configs or anything at the cost of reduced expectations If Microsoft and the rest of the packaged software industry had embraced Internet distribution we might be somewhere else now but they did not and thus a lot of PC software moved to the Web So now you go click on a store and you app download and install Once you see it in action you shouldn t be surprised people like it even when ceding control and maybe even freedom Hopefully one day a desktop OS could have such an option The Web is dead Long live the Web So is the Web dead Not by a long shot as some would point out and likely to remain very profitable given Google s latest earnings The Web remains a vital information resource both of text and now of richer context like video and that s not going away anytime soon Also there are many millions of PCs out in the world that now exist for the sole purpose of Web browsing consider all those machines with WinXP that are just not upgrading But will the notion that everything must run in a browser prevail At this point clearly not That said there are concerns of bypassing the Web and walled gardens that shouldn t be discarded hastily but I think a new balance is emerging The new old world will have extremely media rich apps delivered and coexisting with information and webapps via the Cloud A perfect example of this is the killer Flipboard application that turns your social network and Internet feeds into a readable magazine Where magazine apps have been nothing more than glorified versions of the interative CDROMs of the 90s without the linking that made the Web what it is Flipboard integrates the feeds and gives you a way to see Web content from the app Brilliant 9 933333 84 083333 Share this Email Facebook Twitter Like this Like Loading Related October 21 2010 by pjpalm801

    having resources overseas could help companies to reduce costs India is still country 1 in the top of offshore service providers around world However in the recent years some other countries have started to grow and follow it very close like China Philippines Ireland India bests Costa Rica in most of the decision criteria according to Gartner studios but I would say it is because of the proportion of people for example if 20 of Indian citizens speak English it represent more than 200 million people So they have more English speaking people However Costa Rican accent is more familiar for the US people India graduates about 300 000 software developers every year while Costa Rican public universities receive every year only about 400 people So their employment pool is definitively wider than Costa Rican However some companies that have experience with both India and Costa Rica say ticos are more proactive I think it is hard to compare it because of the huge proportional differences between the two countries We found cases of US companies that went to India failed and then came to Costa Rica and succeed We also found cases of companies that currently have services offshore in both countries with success they decide countries according to each specific need Costa Rica has experienced a great increment as an offshore provider in the recent years and today is part of the 7 Latin America countries that are part of the top 30 world countries to contract offshore services according to Gartner As an advantage Costa Rica is located in a geographical strategic location pretty close to time zone of most of North America and easy and cheap to travel Also Costa Rican pronunciation is very friendly for US people professionals here are proactive dedicated have willing to learn to improve and to grow those are qualities that US companies value So Costa Rica is very attractive and especially for US companies There is a challenge for the government here to go forward in making Costa Rica a more attractive place for business But this is not only an effort of the government The challenge for us IT people that work for offshore companies is to keep the good work and delivering results to our customer so Costa Rica can continue incrementing its rating between the best places to do offshore Ricardo Sánchez Share this Email Facebook Twitter Like this Like Loading October 29 2010 by ricardosar Categories Costa Rica Informatech Tags outsourcing 1 Comment A great place to work The Great Place to Work Institute reports that five trust building elements found in the best workplaces are credibility respect fairness pride and camaraderie As an employee I had always dreamed about finding that wonderful company where I could find all those elements but not only for me but for everyone in the company Through my experience working for large organizations for years I could have only been able to find two or three but never all of
