Having a suitable application whether it’s a desktop or web application is more dependable on the client’s demands. Viewing the above points can surely help a person to think & get what he wants for his enterprise.

A desktop application can provide more access & security which you couldn’t get in a web application.
Chances of engaging genuine users with the application are higher as compared to the web application where a person from a different niche may unnecessarily install the application without need.
Downloading a desktop development even on millions of systems could not load; it uses a common user’s system resources whereas a web application that is centralized can get more loaded due to traffic and data while hosting another system.

Desktop applications are accessed & run on a specific system by concerned users whereas web applications have more wide access.
Desktop applications are stored & run on personal machines/systems whereas web applications are hosted & run online in the cloud.
