The business value of RIAs is very clear: aesthetics do matter and users would like a pleasant experience. But improving the user experience and adding interactive visualization is just the starting point - RIAs today also offer scalability, reliability, performance, and security. AJAX is becoming the standard dynamic interface for the Web, providing the core enabling technology for user interaction.
