Explore the advantages of using Node.js (server-side JavaScript) to develop systems of engagement. In this article, see the results achieved by an IBM Extreme Blue team who used Node and MongoDB with IBM Passes, an application that demonstrates the notion of systems of engagement. Their experience with Node and MongoDB provides interesting insight into how rapid application development can be achieved with these solutions that are starting to appear in the enterprise. If you decide to proceed with Node and MongoDB, please refer to Part 2 of this series, which provides how-to details and best practices for Node production.
