Synchronisation and replication technologies through Node.js.

In our data-driven age where data-driven enterprises cannot tolerate disruptions and downtimes, it is clear that, offline sync capabilities are a game-changer. 
Meaning inter alia that, henceforth developers had to figure out how to locally store a subset of the application’s data and also had to implement a mechanism that could keep the data synchronized on both the client and server.
LoopBackis an open source API framework written in Node.js used to connect devices to enterprise datasources. Its recent functionality is available for Oracle, SQL Server, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL and any LoopBack connector which supports create, read, update, delete (CRUD) operations.

The Facebook’s momentum in Africa.

Facebook’s active user population in Africa has the same underlying behavioral characteristics like their counterparts across the world.

Nunu Ntshingila is newly appointed Head of Africa at Facebook, and Ari Kesisoglu, Facebook’s Regional Director for MEA.
When it comes to key stats for Q2 2015, recalls that,  Facebook’s usage a…

Node.js, Apache, Eclipse, OpenStack, Cloud Foundry and many others at IBM.

IBM’s commitment to open source technologies and communities is now clear. Acquisitions and strategic investments within this community combine and streamline its vision.
The recent acquisition of StrongLoop continues to chart this path. StrongLoop is a provider of enterprise Node.js capabilities in the development of Systems of Engagement applications.
Technologies including: Apache, Eclipse, OpenStack, Cloud Foundry and many others will enrich this new momentum that includes technical guidance on creating, managing and monetizing APIs using StrongLoop at IBM Bluemix Garages.

Bridge Java and Node.js development platforms.

Fast and Easy Enterprise Development in the Cloud is henceforth a game-changer when it comes to extract greater and actionable value from your application investments. 
It is always obvious that, Java remains one of the leading languages for web applications and transaction systems; therefore recalls that, Combining StrongLoop’s tools and services with IBM’s WebSphere and Java capabilities, IBM is charting its way when it comes to help bridge Java and Node.js development platforms.
Actionable and greater value from your application investments are at the heart of stakes.

Combining Node.js capabilities from StrongLoop and services with IBM’s WebSphere and Java capabilities.

In our data-driven age, the real-time abilities to better use enterprise data and conduct transactions whether in the cloud, mobile or on-premises is critical as build scalable APIs, and to more easily connect existing back-end, enterprise processes with front-end mobile, IoT and web apps in an open, hybrid cloud.
Node.js is one of the groundbreaking development frameworks for creating and delivering APIs.
For those who are unfamiliar, recalls that, APIs are pieces of software that act as technology glue for integrating applications, data and business processes that connect businesses with customers, partners and employees. 
Developers can create new information assets by combining data and services shared by other organizations, ranging from startups to global enterprises, to deliver new innovation and business value.
Henceforth, Node.js developers have an exciting operating environment on IBM Bluemix™, IBM’s platform-as-a-service to rapidly Build and Deliver APIs for …
