Today, IT companies are competing heavily and striving hard to increase their share through the digitalization of processes. In order to drive the production of better and faster solutions and become more profitable and successful, they need to employ the right methodologies and use the right development tools. Especially in IT business, where trends are frequently changing, the adoption of emerging technologies can be one of the key factors to success. This leads IT companies to constantly ask themselves which technologies and tools are right for their future requirements.
A Brief History
What Is Node.js?
Learning from the experiences of past development technologies, Node.js comes with a set of core modules and a large ecosystem of tools and libraries called node package manager (npm). This enables the easy sharing, finding, installing and updating of the open source node modules. Within a few years, this ecosystem has become the largest source of open source modules and packages, thus surpassing Java and other open source technologies.
In our era of mass digitalization, the time to market is considered as one of the most important factors to success. IT companies are striving hard to bring their solutions to market faster in order to attract more customers, get a higher return on investment and consequently be more profitable.
Despite their many advantages, it is well know that Java-based solutions also come with a great complexity, resulting in longer development cycles and thus increasing the time to market. This is the reason why Java is gradually losing its attraction for small to medium-sized and even larger projects. In contrast, the adoption of Node.js in enterprise environments is rising due to its scalability, performance, and short development cycles.
