Although the terms web development and web design are often used interchangeably, there are some significant differences between them.
Web development refers usually to building a specialized web application or Rich Internet Application (RIA) which usually includes a website component but features additional advanced functionality to replace or enhance existing business processes.
The choice between a website and a web application is usually determined by the purpose of the site or application for your business and the functional requirement specifications.
Simply put, a web application is any application that brings functionality to a website. The type of application you need determines the technology used to create it.
We distinguish front-end web applications and back-end web applications.
Front-end web applications are applications used by your visitors or clients while on your website and offer visitor value to your site: from custom shopping cart applications to pre-existing solutions such as online chat services.
Back-end web applications are those you interact with to provide a service or product for your visitors and clients like: services ticketing, order tracking and fulfillment, client and visitor tracking.
Web applications frequently integrate with existing business IT infrastructure such as accounting packages, stock management systems and add significant business value both in direct revenue possibilities as well as through business process optimization.
More and more interaction from person to person will be replaced by interaction between person and application, the Rich Internet Application (RIA), which creates a unique user experience and an optimization of the client relationship. The interface design objective behind a RIA is to simulate the intuitive, immediate interaction a user experiences with a desktop application.

Below are few examples of web development technologies we use:
Content Management Systems (CMS)
CMS falls into the category of back-end applications. A CMS system allows you to update and maintain areas or your web site without needing programming skills or website editors. All you need is a browser.
Flash is a very special technology. It's both amazing in its scope and capability to allow creation and delivery of fully interactive, multimedia web applications. Although very well suited for entertainment, training and educational web applications, it also shines when used to create component applications placed within a website.

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is one of the most common ways for two different systems to exchange data with one another. For example, a shipping company may offer a service that allows you to look up the shipping rate from one destination to another. To get that data, you first send the origin and destination addresses via XML to the shipping service. Then the shipping service sends back the shipping rate and other information to you via XML.
Dynamic HyperText Markup Language (DHTML) is an another way to add interactivity or other effects to a web site. One of the most common uses of DHTML is to create drop down menus which appear when a user rolls over a navigation link.
