Don’t forget to meet up in the main lobby of the Venetian for the unofficial Channel Partners run at 6:30 am!
We are excited for a great show. Stop by Booth 6041 to see StartMeeting in action! And pick up a pair of StartMeeting earbuds.
I am humbled and excited to be a part of the Telecom Advisory Council of CompTIA. This initiative marks the first foray into the telecommunications world for a 30 year old IT advocacy and certification organization.
I am often asked why StartMeeting requires a download, or plug-in, for a host or participant to access a meeting. Invariably, I found myself back-pedaling in search of a well-constructed response to a very pertinent question.
Then, it hit me. Well, actually, I read a very good explanation for the fundamental differences between each approach. Below are excerpts from an article by Max Katz, which was published in the Jan/Feb 2013 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine.
Native apps are usually fast and polished, making them great for high performance apps or games. Mobile web apps perform well, but still fall behind native app performance.
Many business applications do not necessarily require such high levels of performance. In these cases, web apps are more cost effective. On the other hand, [applications] that require more advanced performance features should utilize native development.
A native app can produce the best user experience, can give you the best access to device features, and can be discovered in the app stores. On the other hand, building a native app on every major platform requires more socialized skills, a longer time to market, and a bigger budget to build and maintain.
Thanks, Max. I could not have said it better myself… really.
