HTML5 and the Future of Adobe Flash [and Silverlight]

Posted by Michael Gaigg

Really interesting research note by Gartner.

Key findings:

  • HTML5 will become the mainstream of the Web during the next decade.
  • HTML5 is a potential threat to the continued adoption of plug-in based RIA approaches (including Flash/Silverlight).

Recommendations:

  • Enterprises should try avoid becoming dependent on any one browser or client-side technology.
  • Enterprise developers should “design for standards” and not browsers or runtimes.
  • Developers should favor the lightest-weight technology that will meet their requirements.
  • Architects should consider hybrid approaches […]
  • Before purchasing or committing to a new UI technology or platform, enterprises should first invest in a user-centered design process based on objective data about user behavior.

On a personal note I especially like the following part (btw: brilliantly written):

The average enterprise will continue to make ineffective use of any and all available UI technologies.
