As AngularJS continues to gain traction in the web development world, many organizations are starting to look at the client-side framework as a legitimate option for new projects that represent something other than greenfield development. As many organizations seek to replace aging or inefficient internal processes, AngularJS is starting to see more widespread adoption for the replacement of enterprise applications. Below are a few examples of how AngularJS is being used in enterprise development and some of the results being seen.
Google – DoubleClick
ING – SpectINGular
IBM – MobileFirst Platform Foundation (aka Worklight)
IBM, when bringing their big data and analytics platforms to the mobile environment, introduced their MobileFirst Platform Foundation (formerly known as IBM Worklight). In order to maintain a common look-and-feel between mobile and web clients, IBM designed their adapter layer to operate against AngularJS. With IBM’s constant tech advocacy, they saw the advantages that AngularJS had to offer for mobile and web applications. Through pushing an AngularJS front-end interface, IBM ensured that developers could continue to utilize the bleeding edge of web development technology as they developed applications using their data analysis tools.
As seen above, there are many organizations in the corporate landscape making use of AngularJS for enterprise development. From entire frameworks like Google’s DoubleClick mobile advertising platform to developer frameworks like SpectINGular and the MobileFirst Platform Foundation, many large organizations have bought into the Angular development pattern in a major way. With the advantages that Angular offers to developer throughput, training, and productivity, Angular is an ideal choice for any type of enterprise application development – from internal toolsets to product replacement efforts. Furthermore, with the built-in focus on testing, AngularJS has a lot of benefits to offer organizations looking to become more agile in their development processes. Choosing AngularJS for your enterprise application has many benefits, and – as the above cases have shown – can prove to be a true force multiplier for your internal development organization.
