The reputation of a company can now be measured by the quality of its online presence, delivered in a way which is highly interactive (web applications rather than web sites). There is a requirement that web applications will be usable, accessible, secure, scalable, portable and maintainable. These things don’t happen by themselves, and industry needs skilled professionals who understand the whole problem and who can keep themselves up-to-date with new developments in a fast moving field.
