This article discuses the pros and cons of using html5 for business that are building and deploying web content. Some of the reasons to use html5 includes: deployment across multiple platforms, which leads to maintaining one batch of code with less maintenance and a lower lifetime cost; offers more storage options; development of html5 apps may lead to better access on business intelligence on mobile phones. However, the most prominent cons that come into mind are that the promises that html5 make have not come into realization; and html5 is incompatible with Internet Explorer which is an extremely popular browser. It is highly recommended to get a programmer familiar with html5 if you decide to go through this route.
This is the topic that we had for this week and when I saw that not many other people considered putting up this article I decided that most would want to know this. Because I am a CIS student aiming for the business side I know that an article like this is very important when considering adding or changing other elements in your business plan(s). I hope that for those that decide to read this article find it interesting.
