Dronfield, Derbyshire, United Kingdom, 2011/02/18 - Perceptant101, an award winning web design and development company, today unveiled to audiences in Chesterfield, Sheffield and London a range of new HTML5 applications developed for SAP, Salesforce.com and Microsoft Dynamics.
Perceptant101, an award winning digital interactive agency specialising in website design, web development, mobile applications, e-learning solutions and SEO, today announced support for HTML5, CSS3 and Silverlight, as it unveiled a series of bespoke web applications it has developed for customers using the new technologies.
The bespoke applications, produced by its web development team based in between Chesterfield and Sheffield on the Yorkshire and Derbyshire border in the UK, complement Salesforce.com, SAP and Microsoft Dynamics by providing additional functionality in the areas of project management, supply chain integration and reverse logistics.
HTML5 finally frees developers from the shackles that have so far blighted the development of online business applications because it provides a quantum leap in managing data, rendering graphics and text, integrating video and audio, and provides a user experience that is more intuitive and faster.
Overall, HTML5 introduces a plethora of new tags and enhancements for a wide range of features including form controls, APIs, multimedia, structure, database support and faster processing. All of which combine to make it a far more serious, robust and open platform upon which business web applications can be built.
Perceptant101’s Reverse Logistics application for example, designed and developed for a customer operating within the UK’s B2B software market, to complement SAP and other leading ERP systems, leverages XML and incorporates its strengths into a comprehensive business application environment – managing all critical aspects of returns stock management between customers, partners and suppliers.
"Perceptant101 prefers to be at the leading edge of applications development but only when the underlying technology provides distinct competitive advantage for our customers" said Dave Jolliff, Development Director of Perceptant101. "HTML5, CSS3 and Silverlight have now matured and the advantages they provide our customers have allowed us to develop next generation business applications that are well in advance of anything else in the market".
"Customers competing in today’s business environment need to rapidly assemble business applications that engage users, provide distinct value-added functionality and look visually impressive" says Mathew Slinn, CEO of Perceptant101. "Perceptant101’s development methodology coupled with its breadth of experience allows us in many cases to over deliver on specifications – helping customers increase revenues whilst speeding user adoption and uptake"
The history of HTML5
HTML5 is the next major revision of the HTML standard, currently under development. Like its immediate predecessors, HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.1, HTML5 is a standard for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. The Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group (WHATWG) began work on the new standard in 2004, when the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was focusing future developments on XHTML 2.0, and HTML 4.01 had not been updated since 2000. In 2009, the W3C allowed the XHTML 2.0 Working Group's charter to expire, and decided not to renew it. W3C and WHATWG are currently working together on the development of HTML5.
HTML5 is a response to the observation that the HTML and XHTML in common use on the World Wide Web is a mixture of features introduced by various specifications, along with those introduced by software products such as web browsers, those established by common practice, together with many syntax errors in existing web documents. It is also an attempt to define a single markup language that can be written in either HTML or XHTML syntax. It includes detailed processing models to encourage more interoperable implementations; it extends, improves and rationalises the markup available for documents, and introduces markup and APIs for complex web applications.
From its humble beginnings in London, Perceptant101 (perceptant101.com) has grown to become an award winning digital interactive agency specialising in website design, web development, mobile applications, e-learning solutions and SEO.
