If you use ColdFusion, you are still using a 'regular database with simultaneous connections'. The only differences is that you application resides on a server and is accessed through a webbrowser.

This makes things a lot easier from a maintenance perspective: no need to distribute applications to all workstations on your network, and only central thing that needs to be changed for fixes or extension of features.

All in all, I am in favour of going for a webapplication.
