The Full Stack
1) Save Time Getting Started
2) Leverage Community Experience
3) Fail Quickly/Cheaply
A prototype can be rapidly created with MEAN.JS. The prototype can test the value of your application before you invest a lot in it. After you prove the value proposition you can have more confidence that further investment will be worthwhile. The MEAN.JS stack is scalable for solving many business problems. However, if your particular problem will not scale, you could plugin a different backing store or provider for your REST services. The architecture will enable this agility while also giving you early feedback on the value of your application.
4) Unify Front/Back End
5) Utilize Proven Technologies
The technologies in MEAN.JS are well established and ready to handle the challenges your business faces. Several large companies are leveraging NodeJS with great success. NodeJS has allowed these companies to rapidly develop scalable solutions that are easier to maintain.
6) Automated Testing
The architecture is setup to support automated testing. Automated testing can greatly increase the agility and quality of your applications. Developers can know instantly that a feature broke several test cases and make corrections immediately.
7) Stay Hip & Trendy
The technologies in the stack are all very popular and as such recruiting resources proficient in them will be easier. In addition talented developers will be attracted to your shop to work on these newer technologies which will drastically improve your chance of success. The Google trends graph below shows how AngularJS is rapidly becoming the most popular HTML5 framework.
