How to choose the Right technology stack :

When you are implementing several technologies, deciding on the right technological stack for your business is not an easy task. Enhancing your technological infrastructure, always puts you in minor setbacks. However, you are required to do it quite often, and you cannot escape that. There are various database architectures and software solutions available, and you are not aware of every one of them, so you can't figure out which solution to go for and why.

So, in this article, we'll brief you about the two technology stacks to choose from for your ongoing business. But before you start comparing the differences of each technology stack, you need to understand the attribution and feasibility of the stack which is very crucial in development as well as product solutions.

Here are a few aspects you need to take care of before choosing the right stack for your project :

Know your project requirement

Shift to Agile model

Go beyond your project requirements for a better user experience

Experience and knowledge of the development team

Flexibility and Scalability of the team

The cost of development

Let us try to understand the differences which will make it easier to decide the correct technology stack for your project.

MEAN Stack





LAMP Stack





Introducing LAMP Stack development :

LAMP stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, Perl or Python. It is one of the earliest stacks in web development and well suited for dynamic websites and web applications. It is still implemented as it offers great substitute to commercial Software packages.

As LAMP stack is opensource it allows developers to avoid vendor lock-in and develop for the web without having to spend much towards their development. For many years, it has been a compelling solution to develop enterprise level web apps with advanced customisation and flexibility. LAMP interacts with end users and source can be altered to suit the specific needs of the developer.

Benefits of LAMP Stack Development :
  1. Easy to Deploy :
  2. The deployment factor of web application is tough especially when the programming language cannot easily be integrated with database and server. However, in LAMP no such issues occurs as it implements PHP which makes it feasible to expand LAMP web apps.

  3. Cost Factor :
  4. As every levelin LAMP stack is open-source, a project can be completed with minimum development and hardware costs. Moreover, there are other opensource projects available in LAMP stack such as Joomla, Drupal, OS Commerce, so you can choose a suitable option and deploy a project based on your requirements. This brings the project cost further low.

  5. Platform independent :
  6. LAMP code works on wide range of operating systems and therefore it is platform independent. LAMP works on Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS easily.

Introducing MEAN Stack development :

MEAN Stack is a collection of JavaScript-based software stack applied for building dynamic websites and web applications. MEAN is an acronym where M is MongoDB, E for Express.js, A for Angular JS, and N for Node.js. It is a free and open source stack designed to provide developers with a fast and organized technique of creating rapid prototypes of MEAN based web technologies.

One of the major advantages is the same Javascript language that runs on every tier of applications.

Benefits of MEAN Stack development :
  1. High Flexibility :
  2. MEAN stack enables efficient development of isomorphic code as it implements Javascript all through. For instance, if you develop a code in Node.js and later if you plan to move your code to AngularJS you can easily do it without altering anything within the code.

    MongDB itself enhances the flexibility of MEAN stack.It is a rigid database layer with automatic sharing and full cluster suport functionalities. Hence, you can host your project on cloud.

  3. Advantage of JSON :
  4. MEAN stack development can be beneficial for with JSON. When you choose Angular JS or MongoDB it allows seamless data distribution between the layers. The data can be imported with the help of codes from MySQL server and process it.MEAN stack uses similar formats each time so when reformatting, it saves time. It also supports external APIs, so that you can choose to work with them when needed.

  5. Rapid MVP development :
  6. A lot of frameworks, libraries, & reusable modules are available within the stack which increases the speed of development. With ready-made solutions, one just not only saves time but also makes the development less laborious. MEAN stack also offers a robust foundation to build scalable software products.
