  Adoption Patterns:
A White Paper
eVision Picture

by Omar Badreddin & Judith Paradis


Business Process Management (BPM) is a novel holistic approach to aligning aspects of the organization with its stated goals, and aims at bridging the gap between business and IT domains. Although the initial focus of BPM was on the automation of business processes with the use of information technology, it has since been extended to integrate human-driven processes in which human interaction takes place in series or in parallel with the use of technology.

  HTML5 vs Flash
eVision HTML5 x Flash

Adobe Flash was put on the spot with the arrival of iPhone, iPad and graduate changes on webdesign. After Steve Jobs (co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Apple) announced that Apple would not support Flash for iPhone (claiming that web standards should be open and allow the use of HTML5, CSS and JavaScript), Adobe's counter-attack was a note advising that iPhone users will not properly view web content containing Flash features (such as banners, videos, games or Flash sites). This represents 50% of the overall web content nowadays. The result : Which technology will become supreme... HTML5 or Flash?

What is HTML5?

HTML5 is being developed by W3C as the next major version of HTML. HTML5 introduces a number of new elements that can benefit end users and developers. Here are some of these elements:

    • Canvas Element: There are endless possibilities with the
      Canvas Element in HTML5; since there is no need to download
      any plug-ins to display content such as graphics and graphics

    • Video Element: Video embedding without 3rd party plug-ins
      such as Flash and QuickTime.

    • Offline Web Applications: The Offline Web Applications enable
      users to interact with the web applications offline.

    • Geolocation: HTML5's Geolocation is a method of correctly
      pinpointing a user's location. The new idea is to get the location
      information from Wi-fi and GPS.

HTML5 is an attempt to standardize how browsers decode the information on a web page bringing a better interactivity for final users and less headaches for developers and programmers. As much as some HTML5 components are capable of performing functions similar to Flash, we must take into consideration that these elements are still limited to few browsers. However, the compatibility is still a work in progress and some browsers are more compatible than others.

Programmers and developers agree that a good part of web content, such as animated banners and videos, do not need to be in Flash. Additionally, the majority of them blame Adobe's carelessness regarding developing compatibility improvements and new versions for this technology. In my opinion, HTML5 will become the standard for interactive content and Flash will remain the king for animated content.
