thin client is the clients which works with dumb (thin clients) terminals or thin client apps... which is connected through a network... which is most popular method in commercial market...

thick client is the normal client which install on o/s machines.

about the we base which need more protection... which faces the internet means the risk factors are more.... if security is not so good. even if u publish over the web with vpn other factor is users can access from any where that means no controlling on application access...

best practice as per industry standard is publish application over thin client based application... with dual authentication... and proper security measures... here u can control.. u can give access to certain machine ... even here user can access anywhere in the world...

this could be a large topic though your question looks small and simple.

at first, be aware there is NO the best ERP software in the world, in the market and in the reality. if one or few could be the best, you would not be able to see currently heaps of ERP software available from as large as SAP to as small as a open source project maintained by a single author.

though you can't find the best one, you can however find the most suitable one that just meets your current and futher business.

that means, it highly depends on your specific requirements --- your business goal, business model, organisation structure, work flow, and most importantly your people.

even a comprehensive, commercial ERP software package also needs to be tailored by your specific business requirements.

so can you please give more details about business? what are you doing and what do you want to do in the near future?

both are different flavors..

web base is no need to install any client... so minimum manual intervention ..

both are having centralized management...  

web publishing is bit slow compare to server client...

web client need more security measures ...   compare to server client .. thin clients..

web clients can be access over any devise ... o/s independent...

thin clients are o/s independent...

and more and more...

In selecting an ERP system, it is more important to look at your core business requirements first, versus looking at the client format:
-What areas of your business will be included?
-What internal resources do you have to manage the system?
-How complicated are your material master records?
-How complex is your inventory to manage?
-How will you be handling product lifecycle management?
-Do you have any production capacity planning requirements?
-What are your needs around financial tracking and reporting?
-If you are in retail, will you be using this system for point of sale in your stores?

The implementation and ongoing support costs of an ERP system are much higher than the client-side configuration costs. Therefore, pick the right system based on your near-term functionality needs and then on your ongoing support strategy. The client technology (thin, thick, web) should then be a factor to consider when you are analyzing the candidate applications, but it should not be the driving factor.
