JavaScript is changing the way we deliver software. Redmonk research indicates a consistent increase in JavaScript development for frontend applications and, increasingly, server-side applications. This trend is greatly impacting enterprise companies where the increase is at once a major boon to innovation initiatives that are driving change to embrace new application development trends in data accessibility and availability. App, mobile, bots and more are everywhere. Customers expect the experiences enterprise companies create to be available wherever they are. All of this is not without significant challenges. This represents a sea change in workforce needs and managers are expected to deliver these new capabilities with the quality and reliability that enterprise customers demand.
