Principal influences on UK web applications

services

The development and operation of web applications is usually driven by business objectives in the context of the economic situation and customer needs. But what are the key regulatory issues and who are the prominent players in setting standards and guidelines? The answer depends upon your sector, your customers, the type of functions that are web-enabled and the countries you operate in. We have created a diagram showing how we see the picture for UK organisations - there is a significant 'United States effect' partly due to the origins of the internet and also to close working relationships, ownership and investments, especially in the financial sector.

If you have any suggestions for additions, alterations or corrections (see change log), please use our enquiry form.
