"The next big thing in IT is cost reduction, risk management and compliance," predicts Peter Sondergaard of Gartner. In the face decreasing IT expenditures, the Empty Client concept is capable of providing realistic and dramatic cost-saving solutions in those areas.
Empty Client architecture as a platform can add a competitive economic advantage to the network with central management of distributed applications and almost maintenance free upkeep.
This is possible due to the single-layer architecture it enables, which simplifies web development and maintenance.
The Empty Client architecture allows enterprises to create new and upgrade existing business applications with "must have" functionality and multi presentation layers, while at the same time cutting time to market by a proven 90 percent.
In addition, empty client applications are secured by design, which will help save enterprises precious costs in security maintenance.
