The common ‘outside the Valley’ counter-example: Fortune 500 intranet-based workflow, integration and data visualization applications.

  1. There is no desire for SEO.
  2. The applications are designed to be like desktop programs that can be easily shared across a large organization.
  3. Integration with a large number of in-house systems that must be supported and run the gamut of what you might call ‘extreme legacy’.
  4. While things like Flex/Flash were used for this to some extent in the past, security concerns and dwindling browser support have more or less mandated JS at this point.

TLDR: There is a big world of app development beyond the linkable consumer web.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
