In my opinion, this is not an IT interview question. It’s a marketing and user-engagement question. Why? Because the more people who can easily access your application, website, or app, the greater the chance for adoption and usage. By leveraging the right applications, the net-result is an engaged user-community that helps drive higher sales, productivity, and profitability.
So what factors in technology support more access to your application? Does open source software support it more or proprietary software? Will 3rd party developers or integrators be able to access your application if you use proprietary software? Will stateless connections help access your application more frequently than stateful ones?
