Digitally Transform Your Business With Node.js

Blog: The Tibco Blog

In today’s evolving digital world, customers are adopting more things more quickly—more devices, more technology, more concepts. In the report, “Digital Transformation Using Node.js,” Forrester coins this phenomenon as “hyperadoption,” or the rapid, simultaneous uptake of unprecedented behaviors. Hyperadoption drives companies to build new digital experiences quickly and toss them out if customers show no signs of adoption. Enter: Node.js, a runtime environment for executing JavaScript.

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:

—Build APIs that support both application and experience demands. Node.js is an outstanding platform for backend-for-frontend—an emerging architectural pattern used to develop applications that support multiple digital front-ends—because of the JavaScript language synergy on the front-end and the ability to perform at scale on the back-end.

—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.
