The business value of RIAs is very clear: aesthetics do matter and users would like a pleasant experience.

Most enterprise applications are based on old client-server technology with high cost of ownership and lack of flexibility. Switching to the Web as a platform for mission-critical applications is very appealing as it lowers the TCO significantly.

Industry experts are arguing that enterprises now realize that endorsing Web 2.0 is going to happen via RIAs. Improving the user experience and adding interactive visualization is just the starting point. RIAs also offer scalability, reliability, performance, and security on par with what they are used to with old client-server technology.

Accordingly, the AJAXWorld Conference Advisory Board welcomes submissions on all relevant topics, including...
