AngularJS is an open source web development framework that’s maintained by Google and the Angular community.
As discussed in our recent post Angular 2.0 The Great Migration, Angular has been generating controversy in the tech press recently. The release of Angular 2.0 promises much but some developers aren’t happy with the migration path between the 2 versions. Version 2.0’s first release candidate was published on 5th May.
The changes to AngularJS 2.0 are massive and amount to a rewrite of the angular Framework. The latest version of AngularJS aims to give a better performance than its predecessor.
Also, according to Developerdrive.com, V2.0 aligns the framework with the world of mobile computing: it offers a “mobile first” approach which includes features like low memory consumption and bandwidth usage; touch support and many more. There’s also a sharper focus on future proofing with the developers of Angular 2.0 designing it with future technologies in mind.
This ongoing debate of the ‘great migration’ to Angular 2.0 is discussed over in our recent article, however in this post we’re going to put the spotlight on companies in Ireland who are currently utilizing AngularJS innovatively to meet their customers needs.
The following 5 Dublin-based companies draw on the capabilities of Angular for a diverse range of product and service offerings.
Brite:Bill re-imagined online billing as an important but often missed customer communication opportunity . Their product offers a “modern, personalized communications with targeted messages, transforming the way Service Providers present billing communications to customers”.
Brite:Bill’s product user interface is a dynamic design, it’s customer-centric and aims to give the best experience possible to the bill recipient. And from a client’s commercial point of view this UI offers great opportunity for cross-selling and up-selling opportunities. Also, it provides clients with a configurable UI to prioritise and schedule a wide array of customer notification preferences.
Edgescan markets a platform that manages their client’s full-stack security vulnerability. The platform also offers: “asset profiling, alerting and risk metrics”. The Edgescan online portal used by its clients is data-rich and has to provide end-users with complex information about their IT assets.
As Edgescan’s own website says: “The online portal provides 24/7 visibility of security metrics, trending data, key performance indicators (KPI’s) and enables users to generate custom reports to manage and remediate cyber security risk. Our fully extensible API provides users with the ability to integrate Edgescan vulnerability intelligence into any GRC or bug tracking system”.
Nitro offers document conversion software that can take MS Word files and change them to Portable Document Files or PDFs. This maximises the documents readership online allowing it to be shared by a number of users, while securing content as well. It also offers a solution whereby a number of different documents can be converted into and consolidated into one PDF.
The Nitro PDF is very interactive users can replace a graphic on the document or correct a typo or change a font. It can be shared and interacted with between a numbers of users. AngularJS makes this busy and interactive UI possible.
Mastercards Labs Dublin is a research and development hub and is one of a global network of Mastercard R&D hubs. The core activity in the labs is the development of innovative payment platforms which would have data rich and dynamic customer portal that are highly responsive and interactive.
The value proposition for these products is that much of the customer’s business with Mastercard can be done via the online portal. The emphasis is on mobility and access so the customer can buy and pay anywhere, or almost anywhere.
The AIB Lab and innovative drive towards digitisation making consumer banking as self service as possible.
