Application portability is the ability of an application to be portably installed, deployed, accessed and managed - regardless of delivery model. The term defines an application's flexibility when used on multiple platforms or instantly accessed from the Internet, a desktop or network.
Application portability incorporates multiple capabilities of an application, primarily applications that are globally accessed via the Internet from a Web browser.
When in offline or desktop mode, application portability defines an application’s ability to be executed on most underlying operating system (OS) environments.
