Older technologies such as PHP, Java and even Visual Basic are still used by many companies but are increasingly coming up against insurmountable limits when it comes to delivering modern websites. In addition, these technologies are often expensive to maintain, and experienced developers who still want to work with them are increasingly difficult to find.
Web applications today are measured by how fast, secure and powerful they are on a wide variety of end-user devices as well as the user experience they provide. More and more companies are adopting an agile approach so that they can continuously and flexibly improve their web applications. Outdated tools can become enormous hurdles: in the digital age, no company can afford to lag behind the progress.
React is designed to create comprehensive and feature-rich websites and applications. Changes to the user interface are visible in real time - less data has to be transferred from the web server - and in combination with a Content Delivery Network (CDN), the result is extremely fast and seamless delivery of content and features to the user.
With React, the functionality of a website is broken down into various reusable components that can be built into the page independently. A modern CMS supports this approach and thus allows for maximum flexibility and efficiency during development. The boundaries between native mobile apps, native desktop apps and websites are gradually disappearing. With dynamic front ends and interactive content, mobile users experience an elegant application as they are used to on the desktop.
And finally, the transition to client-side technology also offers increased security, because the code is executed in the user’s browser, not on a potentially vulnerable server.
Enterprise Web CMS Scrivito is based on the Jamstack principle. It uses state-of-the-art technologies such as serverless computing and ReactJS. Scrivito is the most secure and user-friendly Jamstack CMS in the world.
