Why AngularJS is popular among enterprises

Development of mobile applications is in huge demand with the increasing usage of smart devices. Enterprises need to build mobile applications that will help them to expand their customer base.

By 2017, 87% of the worldwide smart connected device market will be tablets and smartphones, with PCs (both desktop and laptop) being 13% of the market. – IDC Research

Keeping this prediction in mind enterprises should build their marketing strategies. Normally, website development has a restricted set of abilities as opposed to hybrid and native applications on mobile devices. That could be the reason enterprises are moving towards hybrid or native apps to maintain their consumer ratio.

Specifically, to target mobile devices, hybrid should be the first choice for organizations. Hybrid offers itself well because of its support upon the web view. As per the current flow many enterprises are choosing hybrid mobile apps. AngularJS can be an ideal platform to build the hybrid applications.

Let’s understand this framework in more detail by looking at how banking and financial services giant ING has used this technology.

ING was looking for a web-based technology to maintain a common interface appearance across hundreds of pages and applications. The only solution for this situation was SpectINGular which is a web component library built on popular JavaScript frameworks but mainly focused on AngularJS. With the use of AngularJS, ING was able to provide an environment that allowed quick prototyping and development to UX designers, constructing a library of components that could rapidly be dropped into a page with nominal effort. In the end, ING was able to deploy a solution that reduced maintenance costs and allows its developers to carry out continuous deployment because of the multiple testing features offered by AngularJS.

The future of AngularJS

AngularJS has experienced some major changes from versions 1.0 to 1.3 to enhance every single part of AngularJS. After its version 1.3, in place of looking at enhancements, their team has decided to focus on AngularJS 2.0. The belief is that since the AngularJS has rolled out, most of the browsers will be compatible with its features, so that developers can only focus on application development. Basically, the future of AngularJS will be inspiring for all the developers.
