We use it for almost all kinds of applications. It's not important if the app is small or big. It's good for DB connections, SOA architecture, office files transformations. The good thing is that it's client side, so we don't have to waste our server resources but can use the client's computer for business and visualization layer.

We currently use Microsoft Silverlight for our Mediasite website. Mediasite is an online portal to upload recorded lectures for medical students. It enhances video playback and optimizes the streaming which was a very problematic issue with our previous software. Currently it is only used on campus and within the medical school and not clinical sites.

The most important question to ask about is compatibility. First you must ensure that it works well with your current operating software and hardware especially crossover to Mac systems. Secondly, it works best for content housed on internal servers as opposed to off a remote server which requires connectivity which can be an issue

We use Microsoft Silverlight company-wide. The product is necessary for our UPS shipping portal. With multiple locations and 200+ remote users, UPS is critical to getting company equipment to where it needs to go and we couldn't print our labels or use the portal without Microsoft Silverlight.
