What is Node.js technology used for?
To achieve the best application performance in web development, Node.js is used for real-time applications, collaborative tools and data streaming applications. Firstly, Node.js ensures great speed and performance. Also, it can support intense traffic of multiple short messages, or chatrooms when messages are displayed to many users at the same time. Secondly, the ability to process real-time flows are extremely good. Trello is a project management application that is rather popular with software development companies. This application was developed on the basis of Node.js and benefited from its event-driven, non-blocking model. Node.js is great for applications requiring immediate updates, such as various collaboration tools and online documentation suites. Lastly, Node.js is great for data streaming applications. It is critical for audio and video streaming applications. Netflix is an example of how Node.js is powerful in this environment. NodeJS can send large amounts of data in smaller packages instead of a single batch.

Why is it worth developing your project in Node.js?
Where Node.js technology can be used?
Node.js can be used as a server-side web application. Node.js with ExpressJS can also be used to create classic web applications on the server-side. However, while possible, this request-response paradigm in which Node.js technology would be carrying around rendered HTML as not the most typical use-case. There are arguments to be made for and against this approach.
Crawlers receive a fully-rendered HTML response, which is far more SEO-friendly than, say, a Single Page Application or a WebSocket app run on top of Node.js.
Any CPU intensive computation will block Node.js responsiveness, so a threaded platform is a better approach. Alternatively, you could try scaling out the computation.
Using Node.js with a relational database is still quite a pain. Do yourself a favour and pick up any other environment like Rails, Django, or ASP.Net MVC if you’re trying to perform relational operations.
Overall, Node.js development services can be involved in any business sphere with a couple of exceptions mentioned above. Over the last few years, it rapidly advanced from a specific solution for runtime communications to a full-fledged back-end technology with a number of powerful high-level frameworks (e.g. Express, Koa, Next or Nuxt). This evolution made it even more attractive for businesses and any Node.js development company there is; software developers speak highly of it. And if you would like to know what companies are using Node.js in production, the list will be impressive, including such giants as PayPal, Netflix, Uber, LinkedIn, eBay, Walmart, Medium, NASA, Mozilla, and Trello.
Savvycom uses Node.js technology to touch the techniques of the future
At Savvycom, we use Node.js to stay updated with the latest technologies. Also, by using Node.js we can satisfy our great customers. There are some applications that we have developed applying Node.js technology such as Milky Chat and Shopping App.
Have you ever thought what your child is doing at kindergarten? Milky Chat is a communication platform for parents to connect with kindergarten teachers to get the latest images and information about their kids. Teachers use the mobile app to take photos, add notes and information about the kids in their classes such as how many diapers/clothes changed or how much water/milk drunk. Once there are new activities of the kids, their parents got notified on the mobile so that they can open the app to view and interact.
Another application that we have designed and developed is Shopping App – Sale & Reward System. This application helps shop owners to distribute Offers and Gift Cards to users who have installed Reward application on their mobile devices. Users can find and pick Gift Cards similar to the way they play the Pokemon Go game. Users can invite their friends, co-workers to use Reward application and get Reward.
