    RIAs in the Enterprise, It’s All about the Data

    Building rich Internet applications (RIAs) for the enterprise means reaching beyond the browser with desktop integration and data access, and that's where Silverlight shines. In this era of rich web experiences, high-definition video, social networking, and cloud computing your users' expectations are changing for the enterprise applications you deliver. They want the agile, collaborative, web-based applications without forgoing the rich, full-featured interfaces of desktop applications. And they want those applications to span devices and media. Moreover, those applications need to access data anywhere on the network and integrate well with other desktop-, server- and cloud-based applications. That's a daunting set of requirements for any enterprise application developer, but those are the very capabilities that Silverlight is developed to provide.  via TechNet
