Why Are Companies Making A Move To Mean Stack?

Technology is anything that wasn’t around when you were born.
– Alan Kay (Computer Scientist)

MEAN stack is one such technology now used by millions of developers across the world for web and app development. It includes four technologies-MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and NodeJS. As both the MongoDB and ExpressJS are relatively lesser-known technologies, let us gain some insight about them.

Written in C++, MongoDB is an open-source document-oriented database like the traditional relational database but offer several advantages. For example, ease in scalability, support for dynamic queries, cloud compatibility, and so on. On the other hand, ExpressJS is a flexible and lightweight back-end JavaScript framework. In such a scenario, it is not difficult to grasp that MEAN stack as an amalgamation of popular technologies is a powerful Javascript based technology. No wonder, there is an increasing demand for full-stack developers well versed in this technology.

Now, let’s move to understand the reasons it has become a favorite of companies with each passing day.

Proves Affordable

The major factor driving companies towards the new technology is its cost-effectiveness. As the four components of the MEAN stack are open-source, the expense is less. Also, the fact that the stack ensures a full stack development means no need of hiring both front-end and back-end developers. A full-stack developer can efficiently do the job.

Ensures Effortless Data Flow

There is a seamless flow of data among the layers when developers use the MEAN stack because it uses the JSON ((JavaScript Object Notation) format for structuring data. This also eliminates the need to write the code again and again.

Increased Scalability

Every business is now building scalable websites and apps. With each of the components of MEAN stack exhibiting scalability, the stack proves advantageous in this regard

Availability of JavaScript Resources

MEAN stack being a JavaScript technology allows the developers to enjoy easy access to several JavaScript resources. This makes it a favorite of web development companies.

The stack also offers other advantages like easy detection of bugs and code transfer from one framework to another. Across the world, several companies are now developing highly-functional apps for mobile devices which on the other hand have less storage space. So, data storage over the cloud has emerged as a convenient solution. With the power of cloud compatible MongoDB, MEAN stack paves the way for the same. In short, it has emerged as the most suitable technology for IT companies.
