Shared applications run on the server. They still need a display, though, be it on the web or on the desktop.

OpenDolphin introduces a shared presentation model to clearly differentiate between "what" to display and "how" to display. The "what" is managed on the server and is independent of the UI technology whereas the "how" can fully exploit the UI capabilities like the ubiquity of the web or the power of the desktop in terms of interactivity, animations, effects, 3D worlds, and local devices.

If you run a server-centric architecture and still seek to provide the best possible user experience, then this talk is for you.
