1. What is the difference between the FRONT-END and BACK-END processes of office automation?

Front-end process refers to the way in which clients access the application. Back-end process refers to the way in which the application invokes remote services. In software development, the challenge of complexity is seen throughout the lifecycle: capturing requirements, creating design, architecture, coding, build, test, package, release. Nevertheless, the structure of the front end of the lifecycle is much simpler than the back end. In general, the front-end process involves fewer requirements in terms of design, architecture, and coding.
The back end is much more complex. Here you often have multiple targets for platform, language, app server, database, tooling, and, if the development is distributed, location. The combinatorial explosion created by this very common scenario introduces a level of complexity that often exceeds a development team's ability to manage. It is much more tedious, time consuming, error prone.
