Hi Experts,

Now I am going through silverlight.
I got the basic understanding of silverlight.

Please tell me, Why do we want silverlight?

For eg, I am working in intranet web applciation used by call center executives? This is used to view the customer details, their purchase details, user profile and some adding and modifying master data.

How can use silverlight in this project? or Why do i need to use silverlight?

Please explain the realtime design of silverlight project.

Thankyou So Much

Silverlight is more or less a Flash replacement by Microsoft. It is also fairly cross-platform friendly between MS platforms (Windows Phone, Windows, XBox)

For me Silverlight is just a new development platform. See http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/what-is-silverlight/

OK, it gives more modern look (but  I believe id strongly depends on a designers abilities), more security according to MS etc. Also it's claimed that Development is more efficient.

If we discuss technologies it's interesting to compare them. Have a look at the comparison table here:

There is lot of discussion whether to use Silverlight, MVC, etc - there is no one answer. See some discussions:
