What makes Angular great for business solutions?

November 20, 2023

Interfacing with your customers successfully

Winning and keeping your loyal customers by creating a good customer experience is crucial and requires a good solution or even product for that.

Once you have decided to face that need for change, you can start considering the tech stack to build your solution. In some cases, choosing the right technology is one of the hardest moments of the journey. The market offers a myriad of tools. And the tech stack you pick in the first place must comply with your specific needs to the fullest.

Frustratingly, some of the most popular tools or frameworks may deliver similar results. What differs is your journey to getting those results. This journey largely depends on the tech suite you prefer in the first place. For practical business solutions, we often opt for Angular. Here is why.

Fast facts about the technology

  • Market-proven by giants: Microsoft (e.g., Microsoft Office Home, Microsoft Flow, or Xbox), Google (e.g., Google Play Books or Google Open Source), and many more.

  • Works best for single-page applications and progressive web apps.

  • Empowers over 330.000 websites worldwide, and the number is growing.

  • Most popular alternatives – React and Vue.

Angular provides great development experience and is a very popular choice for business app development. The technology helps create fast and light apps, responsive and user-friendly website designs, and business-level applications.

Read below to learn when Angular is the best option and how it can work for you.

Standing out as a framework for business needs

Why do we recommend Angular as a front-end development framework for websites, single-page applications, or software solutions around ERP systems and corporate applications?

We know how to leverage technology for the best outcomes.

“I believe that all the reasons why we use Angular could be narrowed down to a single one, it incredibly reduces the costs of development and shortens the time needed to release applications to market.

Besides this, its rich development toolset and close integration with TypeScript allow to simplify future updates and support.”

Check out the 7 main benefits of using Angular for developing corporate solutions.
Developing solutions ASAP.

Angular makes it possible for a corporate solution to be developed fast. Getting a simple functional app in one day is real if you have a savvy development team to carry out the project. Here, experienced professionals, extensive development tools, and numerous component libraries take all the credit. Of course, the deadlines are always negotiable and depend on the development team you select, and on the complexity of the solution you need.

Enhanced user experience.

Business apps deal with huge volumes of information and large datasets. It implies swift rendering of data. Angular allows developers to split an application into lazy-loaded modules. These modules will be requested by the framework automatically only when they are needed.

This significantly reduces load time, improves application responsiveness and memory footprint. Thus, making overall user experiences better.

A cost-friendly way to receive top-notch solutions.

Angular is an open-source framework, released under the MIT license. One can use it for free without any need to spend extra money on additional licensing or royalties, even for corporate solutions.

Reaching a wider audience via multiple devices.

Angular allows to build applications for different platforms. This means your future business solution will be available to a larger number of users across various devices. It also means you don’t need to contract several teams to develop solutions for separate platforms.

For that, software engineers reuse the codebase to come up with the solutions faster. For instance, they use Ionic for mobile and Electron for desktop solutions, as well as make it possible for PWAs to be easily installed on PCs.

Extending your apps as your business grows.

Corporate solutions grow and evolve. The process implies ongoing updates, enhancements, and adding new features as business requirements change. As Angular promotes the concept of modular, component-based development, it becomes the top choice for delivering scalable business solutions, adaptable to changing corporate needs. Angular uses TypeScript which allows developers to deliver clean and easily maintainable code. Developers organize the code into logical units, so it is easy to test and reuse to extend as you need any new functionality added to your solution – with minimal disruption.

Easy integration with other tools.

The framework helps leverage a broader ecosystem as it integrates with other open-source platforms and tools (which is an additional benefit to the cost-effectiveness of the technology). Angular integrates seamlessly with other enterprise tools and technologies. Which is often a must for businesses to function properly. Developers use multiple libraries that among others facilitate integrations with authorization systems or connections to REST APIs to boost both the security and performance of the app. Besides, Angular allows to use React components within it and create custom components that could be used in existing legacy applications without complete code rewriting.

Security.

Security is always paramount as business apps often deal with sensitive customer data. Angular’s built-in security features (cross-site scripting or XSS, among others) make sure your solution is protected against common web threats. With Angular, the dev team plays forward. TypeScript used in Angular helps reduce errors caused by typos and type mismatch. TypeScript also provides intellisense to speed up the development process and facilitate refactoring of the existing code and adding new functionality.

Secure applications with Angular are also possible thanks to adherence to best practices like input validation and secure data handling and totally depend on the team that develops your solution. So, a dependable team of professionals must back your solution to get a great product.

When polished by professionals, Angular becomes a great option for business apps



Summing it up: the things to keep in mind

Considering the above, it might seem like Angular is a real cure-all when opting for technology to develop a business application. Enterprise-level companies like Gmail, Netflix, or Google use Angular which results in excellent performance, secured applications, and solutions complexity.

Indeed, is it a silver bullet? Unfortunately, it’s not.

Like any other technology, Angular has its weak points which greatly depend on the purpose of your development. We recommend 2 aspects to bear in mind:

Tweaking around for better SEO.

By default, Angular-based websites are not quite SEO-friendly. The technology in the first place renders the content on the client side, which makes this content hard to index for the search engines. SEO can be optimized though. It might need some tweaks like server-side rendering (SSR) or prerendering techniques. This is how search engines access and index the content to improve the app's visibility and ranking in search results.

Angular is quite authoritative.

Naturally, you want to be in control of your application architecture and design. Angular provides a lot of features out of the box, but this also means that the developers need to follow its rules and structure. The technology may sound too restrictive for those who prefer more flexibility and creativity in how they organize code.

Considering both sides of the coin, Angular does become a viable option when properly polished by professionals. Contact us for assistance on Angular or any other tech-related issues. In return, our Angular team will provide expert guidance for your ideal business solution.
