translating client-server app into web app


We are a small company with no experience in web development. We are
considering translating our main client-server product into web application
or web service using DOT.NET. Our app is basically a tree representing the
employees and departments of our customers with some tabs where the
corresponding info for each node is presented. Our customers have different
databases (SQL Server, Sybase, Oracle), and that it why right now our
application is heavy client oriented, but with some similiar procedures
running on the server for each type of database.
My questions are:
1. What part of functionality of web application typically goes into server
side (we are planning on using C#)?
2. What part of functionality remains a client-side and what is a healthy
proportion between client-side and server side?
3. Can you direct me to some articles on that?
