Per thanks for your reply. Can Travel Desk, Complain Management can be considered as APP ? does it work like a normal SharePoint application from which I can call a webservice to pull/push data from Oracle EBS database and populate information on APPS form? – user342944 May 13 '14 at 6:29
Both your examples could be made as Apps. Interacting with other systems may be hard if you're creating a SharePoint hosted app (pure JavaScript) due to security. But if you create a provider hosted app you have the full freedom/power of your environment which could be ASP.NET MVC (or WebForms) or whatever you want. – Per Jakobsen May 13 '14 at 6:36
