 It is now clear that Web development is moving away from server-sided development platforms such as eXPages and .Net towards client based (JavaScript) frameworks such as Angular, Ember, and Polymer. If you have been playing close attention in this area you will know it is a very dynamic one with a steady stream of new javaScript frameworks coming out on a regular basis. This can present a challenge for organization wanting to move away from the Notes client to something a little more modern. That is why Red Pill Now believes Web Components is an important part of that strategy. Web components are part of the HTML 5 standard, so solutions built to that standard are likely to persist beyond the useful life of many JavaScript frameworks. If you build components now using a Javascript platform such as Polymer then they will continue to work even if you decide to build components in a newer framework. Using web components protects your investment and reduces your risks.

Red Pill Now has a deep understanding of Notes data, Graph databases, REST APIs, and Web Component development. Please reach out to us if you would like to know more about how these new technologies are the future of your Notes data. Give us a week of your time and we will show you the magic that can be applied to your Notes data.
