Hey guys,


My organization is in the process of planning for our next new web mapping application.  Instead of going completely custom, we've decided to go the template route - either Web AppBuilder or CMV.  While we are leaning towards the Web AppBuilder, there are still some questions to be answered before a final decision is made.  One that I am struggling to provide an answer for is: 'What is/are the advantage(s) and disadvantage(s) of Web AppBuilder's dependency on ArcGIS Online or Portal?' (Developer Edition). Now that the application has been available for some time now, I figured it would be easier to get some answers on this matter. 


Thanks for your feedback.
