Node.js is known as the tool for digital upstarts in Silicon Valley, but application development and delivery (AD&D) pros in enterprises around the world are successfully using it to transform their businesses. Node.js has three core benefits: 1) it’s enterprise ready, 2) it powers digital transformation, and 3) it’s more than just an application platform.
AD&D experts in enterprise-scale businesses are realizing a number of additional benefits as they adopt Node.js—and not just from a technology perspective.
According to Forrester’s Global Business Technographics Developer Survey 2016, developers who have built applications using Node.js are 18 percent more likely to want to become a guru in the development community over those who haven’t used Node.js.
Node.js enables developers to:
—Rapidly experiment with new and existing corporate data. A thin Node.js proxy layer on top of disparate systems gives developers direct access to data at a single federated access point on a platform that allows them to mash up that data to support their unique scenario.
—Accelerate application modernization. Node.js helps developers to unleash the data locked up in existing legacy systems by wrapping the existing functionality. By creating a disconnect between the front- and back-ends it enables isolation and reuse. This allows developers to extend the reach of their product and provide new customer experiences, by integrating those legacy data sources that weren’t initially used all without rebuilding applications.
—Create digital experiences on all platforms, not just mobile and web. Innovative customer experiences are often best served with a native desktop client. Now, the same developers that innovate on desktop and mobile web experiences can extend to build rich native client experiences.
—Innovate on future connected device experiences. Node.js is not just limited to request/response network transaction models. It excels in processing data streaming from IoT devices in real time.
